What To Do First to Make a Profit

The PF Women Team at our Annual Team Retreat  ~ 2018 Today on Seth Godin's blog, he said: It's tempting to decide to make a profit first, then invest in training, people, facilities, promotion, customer service and most of all, doing important work. In general, though, it goes the other way. Yes, it does. If you are waiting to make a profit before you do these things, in my experience you're  not going to make a profit. So many organizations, ministries and churches are struggling with financial issues. I know your pain. As anyone who follows our story knows, our ministry was in a ton of debt four years ago when I came on as director.  Since that time, we've gotten out of debt and turned a profit every year.  God has done amazing things through out team, for which we give Him the glory! I find that what Seth is saying here is absolutely true, with one disclaimer. For Christian leaders, spiritual disciplines must always be first. Before we started inve

YES, This Can Be YOUR Reality!!!

What would your life be like if you managed your time so well you had the time to do what you really WANT to do, not just what you HAVE to do?

What would it be like rest well at night, without worrying about how you're going to get everything done the next day?

What would it be like to be free to enjoy your time off because your other tasks have already been taken care of well in advance?
 
What would it be like to have more time than just weekends to do something you want to do?  

What would it be like to actually have some time each day to do what you really want to do?

What would it be like to have all the information you need to accomplish this for less than the price of an average value meal at a fast food restaurant?

What would it be like to live in freedom, unafraid that things are slipping through the cracks? 

It’s possible.

This is exactly what my new e-book is about and it's set to release this Tuesday, August 21.  

The book is called JUGGLE (Manage Your Time...Change Your Life!)

Lots of people have already told me the principles of this book have absolutely changed their life. I believe it can change yours too. 

I have two requests...

1) I've been blogging here every single day since September 11, 2006. Before that I blogged for a year on MySpace. (Yeah, I know, what's Myspace?) Some of you used to read my blogs there. If you've been a regular reader, particularly through my seven years of public blogging, I'm asking you to support the book!  Be blessed by even more of what I'm offering in an effort to try and help people in practical ways. More than anything I want to help people, and I know the message contained in this book will do that.

2) If you've been blessed by anything I've said here, or in the book once you read it -- would you let your friends know about it? Facebook it, Tweet it, help  in getting the word out. On Tuesday, the book will be available on Amazon Kindle, although you don't need a Kindle to read it -- all you need is a computer or a mobile device. There will be a free sample chapter on the book's website as well as a Facebook page dedicated to the book. You can provide people with all these links to let them know that help is on the way for all of their time management woes.

This has the power to change your life...to change a lot of people's lives.

Being a "feedback freak" I very much look forward to your thoughts, and conversation.

Much love,

Relevant Church doing something...

incredibly RELEVANT!

I just heard some news today that really inspired me. A church here in Tampa, Relevant Church is doing a new thing this month called the "30 Days Sex Challenge." (I've never visited the church but Pastor Trinity - our children's pastor - has visited or has met some people from this church and he was very impressed.) Realizing that this is a major element missing from some marriages (the frequency factor) their lead pastor, Paul Wirth, has issued a challenge for all the married couples to have sex for 30 days in a row. At the same time he has issued a challenge for all unmarrieds to completely abstain from sex. Of course we know the Bible says that those who are unmarried should not have sex in the first place but the point is, a lot of unmarried's aren't obeying the Lord's command to abstain and this is just one pastor's way of trying to get them to see that indeed, there is a better way! (God's way!) At the same time, many married couples are no

Excellent teaching on Criticism

My friend Pastor Leanne posted this today on her Myspace blog and I thought it was excellent and so timely. It's a blog post from Pastor Perry Noble , about criticism. I think it's perfect for the pastors at Relevant Church right now, as well as any other person going through this. I would like to note that when he says, "when God begins to move" it wouldn't necessarily just pertain to your church but to your life, your family, your marriage, anything that concerns you. I have found that the greater God does things in my life and the more He blessed me the more I should expect it. This teaching is good, so good I was almost wavin' a hanky in my office. Okay, here we go... You Will Be Criticized When God Begins To Move–Expect It And Get Over It. (Pastor Perry Noble at http://www.perrynoble.com/ ) I've never met a devil worshiper–to my knowledge that is. When I first became a Christian I was convinced that I needed to do all that I could to be ready to c

What Verbal Abuse is Really Like, and Why We Must Care
Guest Post: Terri von Wood

In my speaking travels, I meet the most amazing people. Some are connections that go beyond just a night or a weekend of preac hing. One day on my journey, I met Terri von Wood, and we immediately clicked and have been friends ever since.  Just a reminder that all of our guest bloggers this week are available to chat with you in the comment section here on the blog or on my facebook page where the blog is also published.   *** People who have never suffered through or witnessed abuse (including pastors) often don't know how to help women in abusive situations. Knowledge is power and it is my belief that if the church understood the prevalence of abuse, help would be made available.  First, we must acknowledge that the divorce rate is the same  in the church as in the world.  Second, we must understand that the 50% divorce rate does not include all the women who are abused but stay because they do not know what else to do or do not have anyone to turn to.  If those women we
