A MUST SEE for EVERY Entreprenuer out there!

This ‘founder’ is the Bill Gates type. The ones who know how to market and produce the ‘hell’ INTO something.

For the key is pesistience.

We are with Christ. So our persistence is DIFFERENT than this.

This is a prime example of capitalism at its best.

In Christ we are working with a different goal in mind, always.

Keep in mind and in everything you do, the principles of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

For this world is ripe for the ways of Christ (Alaska Airlines and Chick-Fil-A are Christian Companies and there are others).

If you want to keep your wealth AND you sanity, stick with Christ, not these salesmen.

I learned much from Amos (the chocolate chip company fiasco) people like Mrs. Fields and Tom, the toothpaste company.

Mrs. Fields and Tom sold their companies when people like this came. <this so-called Founder.>

How many people are actually interested in saving folk?

As Christians, that is our number one goal.

Be prepared! for demons like this to visit, for success in anyway they do not profit, gets up their ire.

How do you prepare? Number One: Get close with Christ regularly! For we will need the Holy Spirits guidance in all things and the nearer we are to success in any way, the more we will need the guidance of the Holy Spirit.

Supported and guided by Christ in this way, you will know when to fold (The Gambler by Kenny Rogers (know when to hold em, know when to walk away and know when to run!).

Christ guarantees dominion, when we walk with Him.

Amd what looks like a failure, never is in Christ.

Romans 8:12 will be a corporation and so will the others.

Produce and build SO MUCH that the devoid cannot keep up!

While the devoid is busy eating its young.

We will be producing children with dominion mindsets.

An Attitude Adjustment is commencing! ūüôā

For we will have the key to Everlasting Creativity while the others dry up and wither away, unable to stand against the Angel Armies that we stand with.

It is time.

Grow hearts disciples of Christ, grow in the Holy Spirit…Imagine walking with the confidence that Christ will have dominion wherever you go and it will be so.

When our focus is on Christ and not the devoid.

For i use to fear what ‘they’ would say, the numbers they would bring…no longer because the Holy Spirit is building me up.

Nothing will stand against the Stronghold of Elohim, for we are obligated to shepherd, be stewards of 1 Corinthians 13:4-8.

Practice standing for Christ right where you are! Increase your marriage to Christ (make it better, improve it).

And understand not everyone will be saved, not everyone is chosen, and even then, few chosen actually succeed.

I’m learning to greet people who do not greet back, i’m learning when NOT to do that! When not to be concerned with it,.

I believe and so i choose to be one of the ones who succeeds…if we all aim for that, we will not have time for anything else and we will be free!

Its been over 20 years in the making, the roots of this tree…tis why a demonic storm cannot uproot it…because its too late…the snowball in hell is on the move!

Pigs are lifting off <lol> and… (i cannot think of more euphemisms) ūüėÄ

It has begun.

Can you imagine how big a tree will be with a 20 year root system? How deep that goes?

Elohim will lift you up, when these ‘founders’ are killing themselves and each other, for nothing they do ‘works’ anymore.

Its a wonderful time to be alive!

For the fall of the devoid will become obvious as it gets bolder, like an animal cornered!

That will be us! (Disciples of Christ), in Yeshua’s holy name, amen! ūüėÄ <cornering the devoid’s minions>

(Entreprenuers are more interested in the idea coming to fruituition than making money. An Entreprenuer LIVES for doing just that with another idea…and it goes on and on. Business people on the other hand have one or a few ideas and so they hold onto them with all their might…i would to if that is all i had.)

The 3 Stages of Powerful But Simple Leadership

January 12, 2016

We all know simplicity when we see it, and we recognize its value — especially in the world of design. But that doesn‚Äôt make simplicity an easy thing to pull off.
Just as it’s tough to achieve elegant simplicity in design, the written word or other creative pursuits, it’s tough to achieve simplicity in leadership — a talent which eludes many of us.

It‚Äôs easy to be complicated but a lot harder being simple enough to get a whole room to just get it.
ask creative professionals worth their salt, and they‚Äôll acknowledge the difficulty of keeping things uncomplicated. The same goes for your own leadership tactics. Lean into that Stage 3 mentality and accept that clarity requires significant effort.

recognize that to create your own best practices for simplicity in leadership, you have to set aside the time to think about it on your own. 

don‚Äôt just be hyper-observant, drinking in the examples of great leadership you see in the world around you. Be hyper-willing to disrupt the norm and create your own best practices for simplicity in leadership. It‚Äôs an art, and something you must practice…

Why Every Leader Needs Mental Toughness

https://www.entrepreneur.com/amphtml/250989

when we see leaders who display an above-average mindset, coupled with strong will and the ability to transcend insurmountable odds, we refer to that remarkable cadre of skills as as mental toughness.

Mental toughness has been described as the¬†‚Äúability to work hard and respond resiliently to failure and adversity —¬†the inner quality that enables individuals to work hard and stick to their long-term passions and goals.”

Steve Siebold, mental toughness expert and author of 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class, teaches that a person of average intelligence and modest means can become world class by implementing the thinking, habits and philosophies associated with this principle. Vince Lombardi believed that mental toughness was one of the most important leadership skills you could attain.

If you’re a leader¬†and want to become more effective,¬†know this: Mental¬†toughness is¬†a fundamental¬†skill set, and the magnitude of your success depends on it.

1. It creates a winning mindset.  

Thinking is the primary filter for every experience that you have. Mediocre thinking promotes an equally low standard of performance and results. A winning mindset (i.e. the thinking, habits and philosophies of elite performers) however, transforms the landscape. It unlocks the unlimited potential to create, influence and generate outcomes that activate success.

the real key to excellence in both sports and business is not the ability to swim fast or do quantitative analyses quickly in your head. Rather, it is [mindset] mental toughness.”

Make no mistake: Leadership success depends on the¬†non-negotiable¬†ability to seize¬†a profoundly powerful mindset —¬†the mindset of a¬†champion.

2.

Leadership is not fundamentally focused on winning and celebrating success. Leaders know that tough times come with the territory. Delving deeply into the trenches, grappling with hardships and doing whatever it takes to succeed is par for the course. They welcome obstacles and uncertainty for their potential to make them smarter, more agile and resilient.

Psychologist Angela Duckworth refers to the ability to thrive during adversity as grit. Her research has demonstrated that it’s a true predictor of success, even more than cognitive and technical skill sets.

One of the exceptional¬†hallmarks of¬†mental toughness is that it helps¬†leaders to reach for their “why.”¬†This is especially¬†important¬†during difficult times —¬†when¬†commitment may wax and wane. The internal drive¬†to achieve¬†goals despite¬†setbacks is what distinguishes the world class¬†from average performers.

3. It provides the courage to challenge the status quo. 

(booyah! :-D)

innovation. Elementary¬†to the exercise of¬†leadership, they signal forward movement and progress, rather than a wanton¬†commitment to archaic principles and practices of the past. ¬†(the way Christianity/Church has been….traditionally, EXPECTED…)¬†…the¬†whole premise of mental toughness is built on¬†the willingness¬†to face¬†fear, take action and thrive in the midst¬†of adversity, courage is a leadership imperative. It would be difficult, perhaps even impossible to lead without the¬†willingness to encounter turbulence¬†and face the unknown.

Courage allows leaders to flourish¬†in environments that constantly change. It also emboldens them to¬†take on¬†new opportunities for learning and growth. A catalyst for¬†healthy self-esteem, it also helps leaders to¬†effectively¬†navigate stress, conflict and crises. Simply put: Mental toughness is an unmatched mechanism for growth. (because it is something one CAN LEARN (in Christ we call it FAITH and TRUST¬†in the Lord…qualities that are acquired by EXPERIENCE…experience is only acquired by ‘stepping out on faith’, risking oneself for Christ…by Standing Up for truth, honesty and love (1 Corinthians 13:4-8) )

 

A Penny Doubled Everyday

timemoney.jpgvia A Penny Doubled Everyday

A few years back I was having a conversation with some people on how whenever you decide to invest in something for the long term you should always think ahead on what would be the best choice in the long run while having persistence to follow through with it. The scenario was if you were given a choice to receive one million dollars in one month or a penny doubled every day for 30 days which one would you choose? When I first heard this, I knew that the penny doubled everyday must have been the better choice to go with as it was a little obvious to me that it had to be a trick question of some sort. But how much better would it be was not something that I knew immediately. So to demonstrate this, it was actually written out with all the calculations and it turned out to something like this:

Day 1: $.01
Day 2: $.02
Day 3: $.04
Day 4: $.08
Day 5: $.16
Day 6: $.32
Day 7: $.64
Day 8: $1.28
Day 9: $2.56
Day 10: $5.12
Day 11: $10.24
Day 12: $20.48
Day 13: $40.96
Day 14: $81.92
Day 15: $163.84
Day 16: $327.68
Day 17: $655.36
Day 18: $1,310.72
Day 19: $2,621.44
Day 20: $5,242.88
Day 21: $10,485.76
Day 22: $20,971.52
Day 23: $41,943.04
Day 24: $83,886.08
Day 25: $167,772.16
Day 26: $335,544.32
Day 27: $671,088.64
Day 28: $1,342,177.28
Day 29: $2,684,354.56
Day 30: $5,368,709.12

Quite a big difference once you look at it as you would be getting over 5 million dollars with the penny doubled everyday for 30 days route. The funny thing when I look at this is how it is almost like starting a business and trying to make a profit. In the beginning you struggle a lot to get things going and afterwards once it reaches to a point it just takes off smoothly. How does that analogy go again? It is something like starting a business is like a rocket ship taking off into space. You spend 80% of your fuel during take off and once it reaches a certain point it flies smoothly with minimal consumption.

The Center For American Entrepreneurship

A new non-profit organization, the Center for American Entrepreneurship, launched yesterday. (written June 25, 2017)

While there are lots of non-profits supporting entrepreneurship, CAE is organized around the idea of engaging and educating policymakers in Washington and at state and local levels across the nation, regarding the critical importance of entrepreneurs and startups to innovation.

I met the John Dearie founder and CEO of CAE, a year ago. He came to Boulder, met with me for lunch, and gave me a copy of his book Where The Jobs Are, which I promptly read and felt was on the money. I knew a number of people on the board of CAE, which was just getting started, and Amy and I made a quick financial contribution to the organization.

I then watched over the past year as John, as a founder, put CAE together. I helped where I could and watched John live the entrepreneurial life as he founded a new organization. Several of our conversations were self-reflective, especially around the challenges of getting investors attention to provide seed financing for a new organization.

Ultimately John was successful and CAE has launched. Instead of a board role, I’ve agreed to be on the Advisory Council, as I’m trying to fit into a role of having an impact by helping the CEOs of the non-profits I’m involved in, rather than having a broad governing role that being a member of the board entails.

If you want to get connected to CAE or are in the DC area and want to engage around the issues of entrepreneurs and innovation, email me and I’ll connect you with John. If you want to support CAE, please consider making a donation.
