Are You Running Your Business or Is It Running You?

Do you have a mentor or a support system for your business? If not you need to get one!

I don't know what I'd do without my mentors and advisors. For over 30 years I ran my businesses all alone. My husband at the time was supportive but knew nothing about running a business - he was from a foreign country and had no clue (nor to be honest, was he even really interested) as to what I was doing. I often heard him say, "why don't you just get a job?"…

Beginning a New Adventure

The thing I like most about the 48Days.net community is that it celebrates action--not just ideas. While I was throroughly enjoying work I love in Las Vegas, my wife and I have always wanted to live in Europe. We'd lived in Asia for years, and in Hawaii for a few as well, but had never been able to close the deal for an position in Europe. Our youngest will graduate from college in May, so last fall I began a 48Days process to make this goal a reality. In almost exactly 48 days I had an offer… Continue

Avoid Expensive Small Business Mistakes

Within ten years of starting, nearly 75% of small business will fail, so it’s easy to understand why small businesses cannot make expensive mistakes. Generally speaking, a lot of owners will have to shut the doors due to a lack of cash. A quarter of them will shut the door before the end of year one and close to 50% will leave the market before the end of…

What Is Your Vision for This Church?

This is excerpted from my creative ministry blog at AMOKArts.com 

It was the question that stopped me in my tracks. Not because I didn’t know the answer, but because I sort of thought the person asking would think I was making it up as I go. It happened at my interview. I had started as the interim pastor. My intention was to come in, stay a few months and help the church keep going while they found their permanent pastor. Then I would put them in that pastor’s capable hands and back…

Healthy Body: How Would You Answer This Question?

How you see and feel about your body is very important, especially for anyone who is actively trying to lose weight and improve their physical condition.

What Do You Do?

Why is it that when we meet someone for the first time one of the first questions we ask or are asked is, “What do you do?”  Not only that, how do we typically answer this question when asked?  Here is how it might look in real life.

“Hi, my name is Johnny Miller.  What’s your name?”  You of course would answer with your name and then I may ask you, “and what do you do?”  If you are like most people, you would answer with your job title.  So you might say, “I’m a teacher or an…

Don't Expect Much

This post was inspired by an actual meeting with a volunteer coordinator for a program that aims to help adults work their way out of poverty. As we discussed some of our ideas, the coordinator responded with, "those are great ideas, but I wouldn't expect much." 

I tend to ignore those types of negative comments, and I did, for a long time. But lately, it's been bothering me.

It's not uncommon to hear similar comments from those in leadership positions. The problem is…

Why I'm Going to Stop Blogging Daily

Over the course of the last five years, I've committed a few times to blogging daily in an effort to reach more people and grow my audience. I've been modestly successful. Each blog post takes 30 minutes to an hour of my time. That includes creating graphics, making sure all of my SEO is correct, etc. I've come to the realization that I'm not getting much in return for my investment. So, today will be the last daily blog…

How to Create A Business With Heart

This is a bit of a different post. It’s about building a business; most specifically a business with heart.

Creating a business with heart means that you not only create a thriving enterprise but one with a sensitivity towards developing meaningful relationships with causes and giving back.

Now, I know what you might be thinking, ” Well, giving back is fine for big corporations that make money but my little enterprise is hardly making enough to even float me, how am I going to…

Do I Have Anything New to Say?

What can I say that's new or different from anything that's already out there?

I hear this question weekly from people who want to write a book and share their stories. They worry that, with all the books, all the blog posts, and all the magazine articles that have already been written, their messages will sound like everyone else's.…

Building Community in Online Courses

One of the most common complaints against online courses is the lack of community among students. In most courses, students function independently from each other. Couple that with the absence of a live instructor, and it's easy to see why many people express this complaint. I just returned from leading a  personality styles seminar for office professionals. The session was fun and interactive. That's easy to do in a…
