Have you ever been totally caught off guard by a speaker before? Have you held certain expectations of their message, only to be shocked by their completely uncharacteristic approach? This happened to me recently when our pastor addressed our church about our culture. I have never been so fired up while at the same time being so convicted!
I experienced one of my proudest moments as a parent this past week. In fact, I almost did not make it through the full experience without breaking down from the immense swelling of my heart! As I reflected on it, I realized that this experience was also a perfect reflection of what our goals should be when hiring new members for our team.
Video: Corporate Chaplains of America
I was recently given the opportunity to share my thoughts (on camera) about the chaplain program we have in place in our business. Honestly, I jumped at the chance! I am convinced that this program is one that every business owner should pursue.
We have been partnering with Corporate Chaplains of America for more than 10 years now. The benefits we receive from this partnership are immeasurable! I love talking about how they have impacted our employees and our overall business, but you don’t have to take my word for it! One of our employees was interviewed as well. Her testimony is awesome!
Check out this video of the conversation. I think you will agree with me!

Over the past several years, I have engaged in two extremely effective learning environments – Michael Hyatt’s Inner Circle guided mastermind group and Dan Sullivan’s Strategic Coach program for growth-minded entrepreneurs. I cannot describe to you all I have learned (and continue to learn) from these two experiences. I can say that both have had an incredible influence on how I view the life I have been given and the potential impact I can have if I use it wisely.
Are you scared? Would you admit it if you were? Are you sure you would even realize it if you were scared? This may not be a topic you enjoy discussing, but I think it is one that we all need to face head on from time to time. We need to assess our current circumstances and determine whether or not we are living out our calling with our fullest intensity.
Career Callings Podcast Interview
Recently I was interviewed by Robbie Romeiser for his Career Callings Podcast. What a great experience!
In this podcast, Robbie gave me an opportunity to share my story and talk about how I shifted my metrics from profit to ministry, and what that looks like in my business.
You can listen to the full length interview here, or listen on iTunes, Stitcher, Spreaker, or TuneIn. I’d love to hear your thoughts on the discussion, and learn more about what a ministry-focused business looks like for you.
Robbie is passionate about helping others find, prepare for and pursue the work they were born to do. You can find him at the Career Callings website.
I should have your attention based on the title of this post. For some of you, my claim is not believable, and so you are reading just out of curiosity. Others of you are willing to consider the fact that two simple words can make a huge difference in your life. You are reading with genuine interest, but likely with some hesitation until you see how I plan to back up my claim.
It has probably been suggested to you at some point that you should imagine the end of your life, attending your own funeral. In most cases, the reason likely involves some sort of goal setting or life planning process. I am going to make the same suggestion today, but for a very different reason. Have you witnessed your own death?
