Everything I need to know, I learned from Noah's Ark..

ONE: Don't miss the boat.

TWO: Remember that we are all in the same boat.

FIVE: Don't listen to critics; just get on with the job that needs to be done.

SIX: Build your future on high ground.

Infinite Banking Concept

Infinite Banking – How it Works

By Gary Vande Linde

Why I am Interested in the Concept

Three years ago, I left a large company where I had served as the division

engineer for the past twelve years, to become part owner in a small business.

The owners hoped that the experiences I had would prove useful in creating a

long range plan for their business and in developing a disciplined approach to the

use of their financial… Continue

Perseverance the great equalizer

I wanted to pass this along.

Persistence Grows Your Root System.

It is the great equalizer for all of those reaching for success. It overcomes lack of education, money, talent, intelligence, looks and all other seeming advantages.

One of the best examples about persistence is the story of an Asian bamboo species that even after five years of watering, weeding, and fertilizing is barely visible. Then, in a span of about six weeks, it grows two and a half… Continue

When can you network in person? 9 to 5 or 7 if there are happy hours, right? When it is 5pm in New York, what time is it in Houston or Dallas or Chicago? Still 4pm right? Denver, or Santa Fe? 3pm Right? Seattle, Portland, Sacramento, San Fransisco, Silicon Valley, L.A.? It is still 2pm right? What about Hawaii?

Don't miss "Servant Leadership - The High Performance Link" on November 4, 2008

In the knowledge economy, Drucker predicted, the most valuable resource would prove to be YOU, the knowledge worker. The most critical management task, Drucker proposed, would eventually become the motivation and commitment of knowledge workers. That economy is here, now. There is a major gulf emerging, a gulf of haves and have-nots, divided between those who are stuck in the passing mechanistic paradigm and those who are already operating in the new optimization paradigm.

Superperforming CEO = Servant CEO

It's a consistent, astonishing pattern.

Google’s Eric Schmidt, Berkshire Hathaway’s Warren Buffett, Harley Davidson's Richard Teerlink, SYSCO's John Baugh, SW Airlines' Herb Kelleher, IBM's Tom Watson, Medtronics’ Bill George, AIM's Ted Bauer, Sterling Bancshares' George Martinez and others - all of these can be described as men of uncommon humility and personal values. Most, if not all, could also be described as people of great faith. This begs a crucial question:

Is… Continue

Boldly sharing the Good News with every people group to whom God directs my path.

-= OR =-

Designing, Sourcing, Prototyping and Manufacturing small, medium, large and specialty tents.

Paul's purpose in life that God whispered into his soul… Continue
