Hey, y'all! Brent Perry with Business on Purpose. Let's talk about the impact your business is making. And today, I'm not talking about the goods or services or products that your company offers. I am talking about the impact you are making in your communities. Recently I was reading an article from Cumberland Bussiness.com. They had a few things to say about local businesses… First, they said that “Not only are local businesses important for creating a culture for the community, but they also build connections and relationships with the people.” Now, you know at business on purpose, our radar goes off when we hear or see the word culture. We love it. We created an entire culture calendar for teams knowing how important it is for the health and success of a business. It's also important to talk about the connections and relationships with the people. Not only is this beneficial to you and your business, think of the pipeline for your leads and potential new hires. But business-to-business connections can be an important aspect for long-term success... such as referrals from other business owners. The article also goes on to say that “Small businesses impact their communities in a variety of ways, from interpersonal relationships to local government to the economy.” Whether you know it or not, your business is likely making an impact already in your community. Even if you haven't been intentional about it, it's happening. Now the amount of impact and the kind of impact you are making is really up to you. Before I came to work with Business on Purpose, I was working for a local business based out of Columbia, TN. Last year, 2020, with the Pandemic in full swing, kids who were able to be back at school were not able to use the water fountains at school. And all the drink machines had been suspended due to the spread. As a company, they raised money, pitched in and WireMasters donated over 533 cases of water bottles to the Maury County school system... it was over 15,000 bottles of water. You want to talk about a positive impact on the community. The outpour of gratitude and news coverage and thank you's from kids and parents were incredibly high. And this is just 1 of many examples we could share from our experiences and our clients experiences from BOP. So, is there anything you can do to be more intentional about the impact you are having? Absolutely.. Here are a few ideas if you are looking to impact your communities through your business. These ideas come from The Chalmers Center's Economic Development Lab who invited our team to a conference call this past week. Give employees 2-3 days a yearly r of paid time to volunteer in the community, either individually or as a staff. Make time for staff to share their experiences. Companies that have done this have watched it transform their culture! Pursue a workforce as diverse as your community at every level Create community among employees. Host an annual event for employees and their families. Track work anniversaries and birthdays, and acknowledge these. Invite employees to give monthly to create a general fund that is matched by the business and that is used to care for team members who encounter unexpected circumstances. Create a small team of employees to be on the lookout for needs and discern when those funds are given. Let's make a difference! Thanks for listening.

Around this time each year, I start getting ready to lead my clients and members of the Magellan Network through a multi-day live business planning process. And one of the key deliverables we discuss there is understanding your mindset. Today's episode will be sort of a primer, and then we're going to break down each element of this topic over the next several weeks. My goals for doing this are to add value, and more importantly, to make you consider that one of the things that are holding you back from success is basically the person who's looking back at you in the mirror. In this episode I also talked about: The different “buckets” you have to master to be a successful financial advisor The meaning of mindset What is Imposter Syndrome? What's inside the mindset bucket Why your mindset is equal to money The Magellan Academy & Network The rules and tools for success in the financial services industry are about to change radically. I have spent over 25 years coaching only financial advisors. In that time, I have personally conducted over 50,000 individual coaching sessions. I have built a profound knowledge base of what it takes to achieve lifelong success in business and life. In my career, I have transformed 1,000's of advisors (below are video and written testimonials by many of them). Many of you probably paid thousands of dollars to various coaching programs with very mixed results. Most coaching programs are just that. A pre-planned process that is “cookie cutter”. Where they have salespeople having to “sell” you on their program and results. In most cases, it's about the coach, their ego, and their money. They base their program on “practice management” or “marketing”. They make you more intelligent. What they all fail to do is help you make that “mindset” shift that must happen for you to realize your dreams and vision. I am going to coach you, teach you, inspire you, and train you all on your mobile device every business day. You are going to get better at business development, practice management, personal development, and your vision. Here is what you are going to get from me each month: - A 5-10 minute morning coach video each business day. - 3 training videos of 20-30 minutes each. This will be a deep dive into four areas I mentioned above. - A live group coaching session where you and I can interact and work together. Here is what you can do each month: - Post a question to me and I will answer it. - Collaborate and associate with like-minded advisors. - Invite other great advisors into the network. Your Bottom Line: Here is the deal. I am not going to ask you for a credit card. Like I said before, coaching is personality driven. You might not like my style or tactics. So with that in mind here is my offer to you. Complete the short form below. You will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to join the network for the next 14-days. I personally approve each submission so this might take a few hours or a day at the most. I will not ask for compensation of any kind during that 14-days. If after experiencing my work for 30-days and if you believe that I can help you, here is the deal. To remain in Magellan Network and have access to Magellan Academy, your daily investment in yourself will only be about the price of a Latte these days. One more thing, it's a month-to-month deal. I'm not going to lock you into anything. Take action now and complete the short form below and I look forward to welcoming you personally inside the Magellan Network. ► Subscribe to our channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CoachJoeLukacs?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/coachjoe.guru/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/coach_joe_guru/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/coachjoelukacs/ Website: https://www.magellannetwork.net/ Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/themagellannetwork Twitter: https://twitter.com/CoachJoeLukacs__
Challenging Women to Embrace Change Carenda DeonneHave you ever felt like life is spiraling out of control? Or that you are being pressured to be “perfect” in everything you do. This is especially true if you are in the ministry in some form or fashion. God forbid you should ever be anything BUT perfect, right? It seems like people today are putting unnecessary pressure on themselves to live a life of perfection. Then, when they do not live up to the perfect image, they feel like they have failed. Failed in life, failed in business, failed in marriage – you get the picture. Well, my guest today was just like you. Carenda Deonne she lived like this for many years as a former pastors wife and entrepreneur. After two failed marriages and business relationships, Carenda stopped pointing the finger outward and pointed inward. She confronted her own imperfections, lack of self-love and trust. Only when she was “Carenda,” was she able to life a full and fruitful life. Now, she is licensed minister, a contributing writer to “Grace and Glory Magazine,” the founder and organizer of P.H.S. which stands for “Prospering Healthy Souls,” which is a Christian centered group for professional women. Through this group, she helps women in fostering prosperity through wisdom, healing and strategy for both, personal and professional growth. Carenda Deonne is also the a published author of three books, the latest is titled, https://amzn.to/3kTehiQ (“Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional,”) which we will be discussing today. She is a professional speaker and takes her message of “IMPACT” all across the world, as she is determined to be an undeniable voice and calls herself, an “agent of change.” Help me welcome to the program, Carenda Deonne! First question, other than that brief information I just shared, can you tell us in your own words, “Who is Carenda Deonne?” Now, from your bio, I guess it would be safe to say that your life has not always been one of sunshine and roses, right?” At what point in your life did you realize you had to take care of you? Why do you identify yourself as a “Change Agent?” What does that mean? Why do you believe some people are so hesitant to embrace change? As you go through the process of helping your clients, what is one of the major misconceptions you find that people have concerning change? I know I've talked to some folks that were going through some issues, they felt like, “once I get through this, THEN I'll do such and such.” Have you found that to be true as well? I mean, why do some people find it so hard to embrace change, especially when they KNOW they must change, until they “go through” whatever it is they are experiencing at that moment? Tell us about your book, https://amzn.to/3kTehiQ (“Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional.”) What is this book about? How can someone get a copy of https://amzn.to/3kTehiQ (“Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional?”) Is it on Amazon? What other services do you provide? If someone has a question or wanted to reach out to you, how can they do that? How can someone get in touch with you? I'll put links to all of this in the show notes below. Folks, I know you know someone who can use Carenda's services. I also know that you or someone you know would be blessed by Carenda's new book, https://amzn.to/3kTehiQ (“Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional.”) Just go down into the show notes and click the links right there. Get in touch with Carenda. Invite her out to speak to your group or conference. Get in touch online to access her services…and be sure to order her book, https://amzn.to/3kTehiQ (“Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional,” ) In fact, as this goes to air, you know Christmas is just around the corner. https://amzn.to/3kTehiQ (“Perfect Patty Messed Up Devotional”) would make a great gift for someone you know. Carenda, I want to thank you for taking the time from your busy schedule to... Support this podcast

We used to do a bit called “War of the Roses” back in the day where we'd pretend to be a florist, call a guy who was allegedly cheating, tell him he won a free bouquet of roses, and ask him who he wants to send them to. If he picked his wife, yay!…but if he picked some other girl to send the flowers to…well then, there's your cheating proof.We loved doing it, BUT…we had to stop doing it because of new laws and a bunch of other technicalities around recording people, etc., whatever, but we found a loophole: E-MAIL.

As leaders, alignment, clarity, and trust among your team are great, but sometimes the bridge to get there is the dreaded awkward conversation. Every leader can relate to the sense of dread that comes with knowing you need to have a difficult conversation you've been avoiding. How do we lead into this? How do we request an awkward conversation and then how do we handle it? In today's episode, co-hosts Richard Lindner and Jeff Mask share some practical advice for dealing with awkward conversations and then hopefully eliminating the need for them. Turn Awkward Conversations Into Fierce Conversations Jeff says the most important thing you can do is practice a conversation before you have it—especially that opening sentence. The first five seconds are always the most difficult—it's awkward, then onward. He starts conversations with “I want to talk with you about…” not “I need to talk to you about…” Replace need and to with want and with. Then fill in the space after about with a clear statement of the issue. Rehearse that first sentence more than anything. Memorize the facial expression, tone, and pacing so you set the stage for a productive, constructive conversation. Jeff highly recommends Susan Scott's book, Fierce Conversations, where she gives six steps to an opening statement, then #7 is an invitation for them to respond. Name the issue Give a specific example Describe your emotion Clarify what's at stake Own your part Indicate your wish to solve the problem Invite them to respond Here's an example. 1. Name the issue (how you respond to certain members of the team). 2. Give a specific example (when Stacy talks, you talk over her and don't let her finish). 3. Describe your emotion (it's frustrating but I don't want to embarrass you). 4. Clarify what's at stake (but I'm afraid if we don't talk about it, we won't gel as a team) 5. Own your part (I should have addressed this earlier) and 6. Indicate your wish to solve the problem (I really want to work this out.) 7. Invite them to respond. Some Practical Advice for Before and During the Conversation You want to start from a good place, which means getting the raw emotion out of the way and getting to logic. Share your thoughts and feelings with someone else. Write it all out in an email you'll never send. Create a plan to move forward. Establish your desired outcome. When we get to that step 7 and ask for their feedback, how do we invite honest feedback and not a defensive reply? Facial expressions and body language while listening are so important. Make them feel safe. Resist the temptation to build a stronger case. Don't get defensive. Listen. The goal is to help them feel understood—seen, heard, and valued. Don't be on your phone. Don't check something. Don't lose eye contact. Not intense staring, but don't lose focus or get distracted. Listen with your ears, eyes, and heart. What if you mess up that feedback invitation at any point? Own it immediately. Think of a brick wall between the two of you. What you're doing is removing brick after brick so you can see each other clearly. Immediately own up to something you did that wasn't helpful, and ask them to continue. Don't apologize forever. Check your motives when you're asking them questions. Are you truly curious and want to understand their perspective? Or do you have a judgment-type energy? What Is Your Body Language Actually Saying? Richard shares a personal example of something he was doing that was sending the opposite message of the one he intended. When he's processing, thinking, he folds his arms across his chest. It's his default move. He does it without even thinking. One day his business partner confronted him about it. He had shared an idea with Richard, and Richard agreed with him verbally, but his body language (crossed arms) was saying something different. Richard was pondering, considering, but his partner received it as him being defensive, closed off. Richard has had to consciously try new ways of holding his arms/hands while processing—putting them behind his body, sitting on them, anything but crossing them over his chest. He's had to become self-aware. “What helps me with modeling and accountability,” he says, “is not hiding something I'm struggling with. Sometimes acknowledging the problem helps solve it. He went from unconsciously incompetent to consciously competent. He's aware of the habit now, but it's going to take him a while to fix it. He took an additional accountability step and shared his struggle with his team. His assumption before was that people knew he was pondering their smart idea and considering it with his arms crossed. Now he knows that it makes people feel uneasy, bad, hurt. He and his partner came up with a funny word for him to call Richard out, and he asked the rest of the team to help him break the habit too. Now, everyone had context, and other times he had done it made sense to them. He broke the habit super quickly after that. Richard suggests being curious in finding out something YOU do that follows that pattern. You don't realize you're doing it, and it may have a negative connotation attached to it. Just the act of doing that will give you the ability to talk to an employee about this same kind of thing. Final Pieces of Advice One question people ask Jeff is: “How do I make sure I know the best time to have the conversation?” You know it's too soon if your emotions are raw. You know you waited too long when you're wondering if it's still a big deal. Err on the side of sooner than later. When you don't address it, you tolerate the bad behavior. That speaks loud and messes up your culture. If you felt those butterflies in your stomach as you listened, you probably need to have an awkward conversation. Do it. Have it. Don't let another day or week go by without having that conversation. And then: “What do I do after I have the conversation?” The simple answer: follow up and reinforce with care. Richard and Jeff want to hear from YOU. What other questions do you have about awkward conversations and how to handle them? What have you done that worked well?

The world is virtual—that's not going to change. So Joanne Black emphasizes that we must learn to sell in this virtual world. That means organizations need to give their salespeople the right tools to sell virtually. How do you look into the camera? How do you have a conversation and build relationships? These are the things salespeople can do in person but struggle with digitally. If that's you, listen to this episode of Sales Reinvented for some tips and tricks from Joanne Black. Outline of This Episode [1:13] The difference between digital and social selling [1:45] Provide the right tools and training [2:46] Joanne's digital selling blueprint [4:37] The attributes of a great digital seller [5:41] Tools, techniques, and strategies [7:25] Top 3 digital selling dos and don'ts [10:19] Share, comment, interact, and invite Joanne's digital selling blueprint Joanne believes you need to have a written strategy that is clearly communicated. How does it apply to each person in your organization? How can you give them the skills to carry out the process? Joanne believes KPIs need to be attached to a social strategy and outreach. Managers tend to shoot from the hip and it leaves salespeople confused. Joanne has been virtual for years and has taken courses on how to sell virtually. She believes you must train and coach your salespeople, allow them to practice, and help them get results. The attributes of a great digital seller Joanne notes that the attributes are very similar to in-person selling. You need to build relationships and play the long game. Some people believe that it's tough to develop relationships with digital selling but Joanne disagrees. If you are well-trained and know how to look into the camera and have a conversation, you will build those relationships. Most people sell complex solutions which means you likely won't close in one or two calls. You have to think about how to meet the buyers that are essential to closing the deal. Digital selling dos and don'ts on LinkedIn You have to learn how to use digital and social selling tools such as LinkedIn. People go on LinkedIn and pitch, send automated requests, and spew garbage. The best practice is to look at shared connections and read people's recommendations. You can refer to people's education, work history, and things they've written to reference in a conversation. People forget to be just as social as they would be in person. What are the rules of engagement? Don't stalk people and send automated messages: Joanne gets LinkedIn invitations and decides who to connect with and who she thinks will pitch her. Joanne connected with someone who pitched her when she responded to her acceptance. Joanne immediately removed her as a connection. This woman messaged her and asked why she removed her...Don't pitch people in your invitation! Engage in conversation on LinkedIn. It's so easy to “like” something. But look at the conversation and share your point of view. Comment and interact with what other people have said to build relationships. Invite people to connect who engaged with your comments with a personalized invitation. Never send a standard invitation. Share, comment, interact and invite Joanne saw a post on LinkedIn from a head of sales all about referrals. People were commenting all over it and there was a lot of interaction (15–20 were chatting). Joanne added her voice to the conversation and it continued to develop. She decided to write to the head of sales and asked if he wanted to do a webinar about referrals and invite the people who had commented. He didn't respond to that question. Instead, he asked her to come in and chat with his group. She had made an offer with no strings attached and it turned into business for her. If someone posts something within your area of expertise, don't be afraid to share a best practice. It's about being open and sharing as much as you can.

If self love is the acceptance of a pain point and removing it, how do you engage in self love? If you do not have self worth, can you engage in self love? So many questions we will tackle this week. This is a therapy prompt broken-down in real time. A question we should all answer, but are too afraid to ask. Therapy is a wonderful concept and useful tool for many. Removal of pain points sound's like a useful idea. But, is it possible to remove every pain point in your life? I don't believe you can, nor should. Pain is a great teacher. Pain needs to be examined, not removed. Landmines and triggers are everywhere. Invite your demons out to the corn maze and share a candy apple with them. We are worthy of our own love first.

Thus I journey on to heaven, Cross death's portals joyfully; All my sins have been forgiven, God is merciful to me. Benediction: Sunday Prayer: Sundays @ 9:30 AM in the Sunshine Room and via Zoom.

What makes us likely to miss a day; and how to find God present in it. In this series, Passage to Wisdom, John reflects on passages from books that have found particular influence in his life. Be sure to subscribe to our YouTube channel BecomeNew.Me and say hello
Sam and Emma host Heath Brown, associate professor of public policy at the City University of New York (CUNY), John Jay College, and the CUNY Graduate Center, to discuss his recent book Homeschooling the Right: How Conservative Education Activism Erodes The State, on the rise of homeschooling policy in the US, how it relates to public education, and the impact it has had on national politics. They discuss the institutionalization of homeschooling beginning in the 1970s as a seed of the conservative movement we see today, stemming from 1974 West Virginia protests of new textbook policy incorporating the work of civil rights leaders like Malcolm X which brought out support from established conservative organizations like the John Birch Society and the Ku Klux Klan, and new ones like the Heritage Foundation, all looking to bolster the right to opt-out of the “indoctrination” of public schooling. After discussing the roles of key conservative activists, such as Alice Moore and RJ Rushdoony, and how the movement has bolstered the fundamentalist perspectives that we see in the push against Critical Race Theory we see today, Professor Brown dives into the differences we see between the homeschooling movement, which took off in the '80s bolstered by conservatives, and the movement for charter schools, which has found continuous bipartisan support since the ‘90s, both in how they found support, and in their organized opposition, which exists against charter schools and their financial implications for normal public school institutions. He, Emma, and Sam also explore the progress that has bolstered the institution of homeschooling, particularly in the growth of technology and the internet, before looking at its influence on conservative activism and organizing, from Homeschoolers for Bush to even Ted Cruz's 2016 campaign. They wrap up the interview by discussing the demobilizing capacity of undermining public institutions, and Sam and Emma also take on the bloody legacy of Colin Powell and run through recent updates on the IATSE strike, vaccine development, and Joe Manchin. And in the Fun Half: Adam Kinzinger grapples with loving the game (democracy) but hating the players (voters), Matt from CT calls in to talk alternative COVID treatments and NOT Joe Lieberman, Gregory for Oklahoma's HD-26 calls in with updates on his campaign, and Jesse Watters does some word salad on that mysterious, unidentified ruling class in early America (white folks).

Do you feel like you're around people all the time but you never really feel connected?Maybe those “only-one” thoughts start to creep in…“People just don't get me.”“Everyone is more qualified than I am.” “If I want this done, right, I've got to do it myself.”And coming up behind all of that solitary contemplation, you think “ Gosh, this would be so much easier if I just had a little support.”If this rings true for you, whether it's among friends or family, in your neighborhood or your workplace, know that you're not the only one who feels like the only one.Community is vital. It's what makes our experience in this world so enjoyable because it gives us the ability to be open and to share. We want to belong. Without it, we feel isolated.So, how do we learn how to “belong”? The key to belonging lies within our own willingness to present ourselves as we are. The path to self-acceptance is through vulnerability. “We often try to acquire it by fitting in and by seeking approval, which are not only hollow substitutes for belonging, but often barriers to it. Because true belonging only happens when we present our authentic, imperfect selves to the world. Our sense of belonging can never be greater than our level of self-acceptance.”-Brene BrownIn this episode, Karlee shares the most common thoughts that high-achieving women experience around solitary, “only-one” thinking. She explains how these thoughts actually exacerbate our feelings of isolation, and why we're never really the only one in the room feeling the way we feel. You'll learn why belonging requires vulnerability within yourself first, and how you can find and embrace community in a rather unconventional way through a surprisingly simple activity.If you find yourself in the room, know this: You deserve to be there, you need to be there, and they need you. You are bringing something, and you belong. The only thing missing is you believing it. If you're ready to embrace self-acceptance and vulnerability to finally open your gateway to connection, then this episode is for you.

Rose Lounsbury shares a lesson that a clogged sink taught her about minimalism Episode 2138: What a Clogged Sink Taught Me About Minimalism by Rose Lounsbury on Simple Living & Personal Growth Rose Lounsbury is a keynote speaker, Amazon bestselling author, simplicity coach, and still-sane mom of triplets. (Yes, you heard that right!) She helps overwhelmed people create open spaces in their homes, workspaces, and more importantly–their minds–by letting go of the excess stuff that gets in the way. Rose started her own simplicity journey in 2012, after getting fed up with spending all of her free time dealing with my stuff. As she slowly let go of everything that didn't matter to her, she discovered some amazing things: free time, peace of mind, & clarity. Rose became a simplicity coach to help others do the same thing.

Ever been in a situation where you get up in the morning all jacked up, you're excited, motivated, committed and you feel like you can't wait to get to work and make things happen, but when you come to the office, it suddenly feels like someone pulled the plug and your energy and enthusiasm - all gone? Today, let's talk about how this happens and why your work environment, the place where you spend the majority of your waking hours in, has a dramatic effect on your mindset, your mood, and your productivity. We'll also discuss: - What do anchors/associations mean? - The 3 different situations for your work environment - Why lighting matters - Why you should start using a stand-up/ motorized desk for your workplace - How your environment affects your approach to productivity The Magellan Academy & Network The rules and tools for success in the financial services industry are about to change radically. I have spent over 25 years coaching only financial advisors. In that time, I have personally conducted over 50,000 individual coaching sessions. I have built a profound knowledge base of what it takes to achieve lifelong success in business and life. In my career, I have transformed 1,000's of advisors (below are video and written testimonials by many of them). Many of you probably paid thousands of dollars to various coaching programs with very mixed results. Most coaching programs are just that. A pre-planned process that is “cookie cutter”. Where they have salespeople having to “sell” you on their program and results. In most cases, it's about the coach, their ego, and their money. They base their program on “practice management” or “marketing”. They make you more intelligent. What they all fail to do is help you make that “mindset” shift that must happen for you to realize your dreams and vision. I am going to coach you, teach you, inspire you, and train you all on your mobile device every business day. You are going to get better at business development, practice management, personal development, and your vision. Here is what you are going to get from me each month: - A 5-10 minute morning coach video each business day. - 3 training videos of 20-30 minutes each. This will be a deep dive into four areas I mentioned above. - A live group coaching session where you and I can interact and work together. Here is what you can do each month: - Post a question to me and I will answer it. - Collaborate and associate with like-minded advisors. - Invite other great advisors into the network. Your Bottom Line: Here is the deal. I am not going to ask you for a credit card. Like I said before, coaching is personality driven. You might not like my style or tactics. So with that in mind here is my offer to you. Complete the short form below. You will receive an email with detailed instructions on how to join the network for the next 14-days. I personally approve each submission so this might take a few hours or a day at the most. I will not ask for compensation of any kind during that 14-days. If after experiencing my work for 30-days and if you believe that I can help you, here is the deal. To remain in Magellan Network and have access to Magellan Academy, your daily investment in yourself will only be about the price of a Latte these days. One more thing, it's a month-to-month deal. I'm not going to lock you into anything. Take action now and complete the short form below and I look forward to welcoming you personally inside the Magellan Network. ► Subscribe to our channel here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CoachJoeLukacs?sub_confirmation=1 Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/coachjoe.guru/ Instagram: https://www.instagram.com/coach_joe_guru/ LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/coachjoelukacs/ Website: https://www.magellannetwork.net/ Soundcloud: https://soundcloud.com/themagellannetwork Twitter: https://twitter.com/CoachJoeLukacs__
Most top producers rely on their sphere of influence, past clients, and referrals to maintain and grow their business. Because of that, you want to maintain positive relationships with those people, right? In today's episode of The Real Estate Sales Podcast, Jimmy provides seven different strategies to wow past clients and generate the referrals you want. Take one person out to lunch each week At these lunches, just find out how the person is doing. This conversation isn't about building a real estate transaction; it's about building a relationship. Spending more time with the people who know, like, and trust you will pay dividends later down the line. Notice special events Consider using a platform like SendOutCards to create physical photos in cards, giving clients the opportunity to frame or keep a special memory of a major event they posted about on social media. Celebrate with desserts Anytime there's a major event, bring desserts to the office and invite people to stop by and celebrate with your team. Consider partnering with a local bakery to support local businesses while providing a free dessert for the community. Hold a food truck client appreciation night A food truck event brings people together and helps you stay top-of-mind in a genuine way. Who doesn't love a food truck, right? Provide group tickets to special events Invite past clients to a minor league baseball game, concert, or any event they might be interested in. These events are great opportunities to develop relationships in an informal environment that builds a strong network. Celebrate their anniversary Most homebuyers don't remember the specific date they purchased a home. If you congratulate them a year after the sale, they'll undoubtedly be surprised! Consider buying a cake or other celebratory dessert to make the event extra memorable. Get a box truck A box truck is a great investment, allowing you to provide a resource to past clients, local businesses, and even local charities to move things from one place to another. Not only is this essentially a moving billboard, but it'll generate positive word-of-mouth and provide a unique way to provide value for your clients. This is a pretty hefty investment, so make sure you can make it worth your while before investing in it! Do you have a video or content idea that is perfect for your business? Share it with Jimmy!

Hey, it's Mike Henry with Follower of One. In episode 199 of our podcast (https://followerofone.org/who-is-greatest-luke-22-27/), we talked about Luke 22:27, but today I want to talk about Luke 22:28. And the verse simply says “You are those who have stood by me in my trials.” Jesus is speaking to the disciples and He's actually calling them out a little bit, because they're having an argument about which one of them is greatest in the kingdom. And this is the last night or so of Jesus's life. So here they are, arguing about which one of them is greatest, and Jesus interrupts them and He reminds them the story about who's greater. That's what episode 199 is about. But this episode, which I think is 522 of our podcast - thank you for being a listener - this is about the next phrase. You are those who have stood by me in my trials. We get the choice as followers of Jesus to go with Jesus and stand by Him in His trials, to follow Him daily, or we can choose not to follow Him. I can choose to not follow Him in the next few minutes. Choose to watch something that takes me away from Him or do something that separates me from Him. I can concentrate on myself. There are so many millions of ways that we can leave Jesus. It's this constant struggle. And I think one of the goals of at least my Christian life has been learning to trust Jesus to keep me drawn to Him, and to keep me connected to Him. Uh, and today what I wanted to do is challenge us a little bit. I wanted to ask the question: how are you? No matter where you are, do you know that if you made a long series of choices to not follow Jesus, the next choice, you can choose to follow Him. You can choose to do what He says again. I don't... I can't get into the “Once saved, always saved” or any of those kinds of arguments. I just know I want to do the next right thing. I want to choose in my next choice to follow Jesus and obey Him. That's why our prayer that we like to talk about at Follower of One, “Here I am, send me” is a profound, powerful prayer, especially when followed with the question “Okay Jesus, what do you want me to do today? What would you have me do next?” When we focus on following Jesus in our circumstances, one choice at a time, we get another chance to remain with Him in His trials, just like He says here. We are those who have stood by Him in His trials. “You are those who have stood by me in my trials” Luke 22:28, from the New American Standard. Let's choose today to stand by Jesus. The difficulties and the temptations and the distractions to separate ourselves from Him, to not stand by Him and to not follow Him, those stay. They remain. We will always be challenged by these temptations to separate ourselves from following Jesus. We can't avoid the difficulty, but we can gain the joy and peace and love of following Jesus by simply choosing. Here I am. Would you please put me to work? How can you use me in the lives of the people that I will interact with next? Show me what you would have me do today, Jesus, and I will do it. Try that prayer today and watch Jesus start to transform your life. The more often I believe we can remind ourselves that we're on the clock for Jesus Christ, the more joy filled we will be, the more different we will live, and the more others will ask about why it is that we're doing the things that we do. That's also why we have to practice knowing what we believe in saying what we believe, but start it, begin it all today with here I am. You can begin right now. Thanks for being a marketplace minister. And thank you for making a difference in your world and in your workplace. The joy that Jesus gives us when we join Him, can transform our world. Jesus is in the process of doing that right now. Let's join Him and take part. Thanks for listening to this podcast or this audio, wherever you're getting it. Thank you for listening to it. Please share it with someone else. Invite them to join you and me over at followerofone.org. Thanks very much.
Every moment has a possibility for light, and a possibility for darkness. And a third possibility that makes the difference. In this series, Passage to Wisdom, John reflects on passages from books that have found particular influence in his life. Today we look at 'The Screwtape Letters' by C.S. Lewis. This is a classic masterpiece of religious satire that entertains readers with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below." At once wildly comic, deadly serious, and strikingly original, C.S. Lewis's The Screwtape Letters is the most engaging account of temptation—and triumph over it—ever written.

I'm honored to share this special episode of the Mother's Quest Podcast. Thank you for showing up to this important conversation about two mothers and their quest for peace and reconciliation in Palestine and Israel. Thank you for choosing to press play. If ever there was a year demanding us to "show up" this has been one. From COVID to floods and fires and refugee crises...our consciousness has had a lot to hold. It can be all too easy to shut down. To throw up our hands. And to say "what can I do?" That question "what can I do?" is one I asked myself during the crisis that unfolded in Palestine and Israel In May of 2021. For days, watching the horrifying headlines, I felt powerless. Then several truths came to me and an intention to find a path to action which I shared in a FB post, like sending a wish to the universe. The very next day, the “guides” I was looking for appeared. In a conversation with my mother, I learned about the Parents Circle, an incredible organization of Palestinians and Israelis who have lost children or family members in the conflict, and instead of turning to revenge, come together to work toward peace and reconciliation. Soon after, I found myself recording a conversation with Layla Alsheikh, a Palestinian mother originally born in Jordan, who lost her son Qussay at the age of 6 months old. And Robi Damelin, an Israeli mother, originally from South Africa, who lost her adult son David while he was serving in the army. Although today's topic is especially heavy - one of loss and tremendous grief, Layla and Robi share their narratives with us for a specific purpose - to help us understand their experience and to support their efforts in bringing Palestinian and Israeli mothers in particular together to work toward change. Inspired by all they shared with me, the week after we recorded, I began to raise money toward a fund to help them bring together bereaved Palestinian and Israeli mothers of the Parents Circle. Along the way, I've been moved by so many mothers who have already contributed. Mothers like Jena Schwartz, who dedicates this episode with a beautiful poem she shares at the end of this conversation. Jena was the first to donate and her powerful words are an invitation to you to say “yes” to this cause. To date we have raised $5,000, half of the $10,000 goal I set. And we have more to go. Though the height of the crisis in May has receded from the headlines, violence continues in many forms, and the path for peace and reconciliation is needed more than ever. I ask you to listen with an open heart, to follow the links in the show notes to learn more, to contribute in any amount meaningful to you, and to amplify the voices of Layla, Robi and others like them, mothers closest to this conflict. They are a key to any path forward. In this episode we talk about: The experiences of two mothers Robi and Layla - one Israeli and one Palestianian - who lost children in the conflict and turned their grief into a quest for peace and reconciliation. The tremendous power of listening to bereaved mothers' stories. How Robi and Layla each got involved with The Parent's Circle, an organization of Palestinian and Israelis that brings bereaved parents and family members together in solidarity. How you can help support the Parent Circle and promote peace and reconciliation among Israeli and Palestinian families. The importance of not importing the conflict into our own countriesWhy we shouldn't position ourselves as Pro-Palestinian or Pro-Israeli but Pro- Peace. How Robi and Layla sustain themselves and find continued hope, even in their loss. Opportunities to get involved and how we can specifically support the mothers of the Parents Circle to come together. Poet Jena Schwartz' powerful poem “The Undefended Heart” and an invitation to contribute. This episode's challenge: Both Layla and Robi challenge us to join them in fighting for peace instead of violence in the following ways: Contribute to the fund to help them bring together Palestinian and Israeli mothers Invite representatives of the Parents Circles to your groups, synagogues, churches, mosques and organizations to share their story. Follow the work of the Parents Circle and participate in their educational and awareness-building opportunities About Layla: Layla Alsheikh was born and raised in Jordan. She had a peaceful and normal upbringing and graduated with a degree in accounting and business management. She eventually met her husband in Jordan 1999 and moved to Bethlehem, where her husband lived for the wedding. However, a few years later tragedy struck her life. In 2002, her 6 months old son, Qussay, became ill and Israeli soldiers prevented Layla from taking him to the hospital for more than five hours. Qussay soon died from the lack of timely treatment. Layla joined the Parents Circle in 2016. Following her son's death, she never thought of revenge, but rather has devoted her time and energy to ensuring a better, more peaceful future for her children. About Robi: Robi Damelin was originally from South Africa and came to Israel in 1967. She originally came to Israel as a volunteer after the “Six Day War”. Her real plan was to live in the states but after spending time in Israel she developed a love-hate relationship with the place. She eventually got married and had two kids here. Unfortunately, Robi's son, David, was killed by a Palestinian sniper in 2002 while guarding a checkpoint near a settlement during his army reserve service. She speaks to Israelis, Palestinians, and audiences all over the world to demand that reconciliation be a part of any peace agreement. Robi was named a 2015 Woman of Impact by Women in the World. Follow Robi: Website Twitter About the Parents Circle The Parents Circle – Families Forum is a joint Israeli-Palestinian organization made up of more than 600 bereaved families. Their common bond is that they have lost a close family member to the conflict. But instead of choosing revenge, they have chosen a path of reconciliation. American Friends of the Parents Circle – Families Forum shares the human side of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict with the American public in order to foster a peace and reconciliation process. The Parents Circle Policies: We work towards an end to violence and towards achieving an accepted political agreement. The members of the Parents Circle oppose the Occupation and believe that it is possible to end the conflict. They wish to influence the public and in turn, decision makers, to choose reconciliation and the path of peace over violence and war. Our goal is to create a framework of reconciliation between Israelis and Palestinians to support any political peace agreement. To prevent further bereavement and to avoid the use of bereavement for further violence and retribution.

Special thanks to Shehla Sa Ni, Kris Zarnoch, Jen Fornal, and Bear Beat Productions for their help and care in editing this episode “Swirling in a sea of uncertainty My voice, tenuously found over the last few years, silent again I don't know enough, I tell myself But deep down, feel this to be untrue In the quiet of my late-night scrolling, searching for answers I never find, instead I reveal some truths within. We are all deeply connected The harm to one mother and her child is harm to every mother and every child, regardless of our differences A history of oppression and casting out can never justify more of the same Extremism in any form becomes a cancer Silence and doing nothing is a choice. A choice I cannot make. So I will remember I am not alone There are guides all around me And ways to make an impact that will reveal themselves If I just take the first step.” Julie Neale FB Post May 17, 2021

This is a classic masterpiece of religious satire that entertains readers with its sly and ironic portrayal of human life and foibles from the vantage point of Screwtape, a highly placed assistant to "Our Father Below."

Today's episode is more personal, as I'll be sharing with you what I've been up to in my life and business over the past few months and the lessons I've learned! I'm also inviting you to join our live event – THE ENGLISH FLUENCY FESTIVAL – that will start on Monday, October 11 and will last for 7 days.

Aaron Rose is on a mission of love, unifying displaced fragments, and supporting leaders to live out their calling here on this Earth school. Ever since our time meeting in NYC and later spiritual encounters in the middle of the wilderness in Massachusetts, I sensed Aaron's divine presence and knew he would be part of my life in my New York chapter and beyond. Aaron doesn't need to drop names of the influential people he's worked with or amass a following of millions to feel aligned with his Divine power and purpose. His trust muscle with God is too deep to worry about growing a social media presence when he knows his work will find those who are drawn to his message. Reaching a place of complete trust is a hard-earned practice that he and I both strongly relate to – especially when navigating a matrix that thrives on an illusion of judgment, finger-pointing, and shadow projection. Aaron graciously shares how he creates an impenetrable container between him and God, and the ways you can dial into your authentic mission and invite Christ consciousness into your life without religious dogma. Whether it's a daily mantra, prayer, or meditation, how you show up to your life every day is what doing the work is all about. We reflect on our individual journeys, cleaning up our sides of the street and answering God's assignments to push into our edges and lean into whole new levels of surrender. And while we can buy a self-help book or share an inspirational quote on Instagram, Aaron's wisdom – and ceremony – in this episode is your permission slip to take intentional action to step into your path as the sovereign, spiritual steward of your life. The Ceremonial Offering Get present in the moment and visualize yourself in nature. Invite the disconnected part of yourself inward and send it love and healing with Aaron's unique mantra, that will help you call in your next action.

Thank you Newsstand Studio at 1 Rockefeller Plaza for providing a place for me to record this episode for y'all! No more Brooklyn closet recording!!! “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” - Philippians 4: 6 (NIV) If you are a regular listener, you know that I have struggled with anxiety a lot over the years. I even did a whole Mental Health May series this past year (which you can check out here). Well my anxiety has reared its head again this fall. I can sometimes resent how it takes me away from the moment at hand. My invitation to myself + to you is: What if I/you/we could learn to not resent the discomfort but lean in and trust that my body is resilient. Like Glennon Doyle says, “I can do hard things,” and I can feel uncomfortable things, pain, grief, nervousness, or anxiety and still feel safe and at home in my body. Lessons From My Therapist You may have heard this verse before: Philippians 4: 6 (NIV) “Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God” In the King James Version, it says “Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God.” Greek “careful”: to be distracted to the point of separation What my therapist explained to me was that anxiety separates you from yourself—because it removes me from the present and gets me to obsess about the future. Out of body. Besides yourself. The goal is to get back into yourself, back in your body. Like with the addict: the moment to focus on isn't necessarily the relapse, but the runway that led them there. The 10 steps before that you took that led you down a path towards anxiety. FOR ME: not eating, well, caffeine, alone time, time with Jesus, moving my body—my body is already on high alert b/c some family stuff going on—so things that normally wouldn't trigger me are activating anxiety—so I need to be extra kind and caring of myself. Be careful for nothing, BUT “But” is where the answer/help comes in. It's an invitation to try something else. Try these 4 things: Prayer: In anxiety we're separate from ourselves, God, and others. Prayer reconnects you with God and it INTERRUPTS your disconnection to self. Reminds me I'm not alone and it's not all up to me. This is an ACTIVE way to take your thoughts captive: 2 Cor. 10:15 The invitation of Jesus isn't to BUCK UP + GET OVER IT: it's to let go of the back breaking load: “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” - Matthew 11:28-30. The invitation of God isn't to DO more or less of anything. isn't to just NOT do something—whatever it is: anxiety, lie, gossip—no the invitation is to BE. “Be still + know that I AM God.” - Psalm 46:10 Supplication: Emergent prayer / emergency prayer. AA 12 steps (very familiar to Phil 4:6) We admitted we were powerless over alcohol— that our lives had become unmanageable. Don't do ‘x', BUT PRAY Came to believe that a Power greater than ourselves could restore our sanity + SUPPLICATE: GOD HELP ME Made a decision to turn our will and our lives over to the care of God as we understood him. Thanksgiving: GK: Thanking god for things in the past + things yet to come Fear focuses on the worst case scenario. Gratitude focuses on the reality that with God anything is possible. Gratitude reorients my heart from focusing on doom to possibility. Gratitude reminds me that God has shown up for me before + God will do it again. HABAKKUK 3:2 Lord, I have heard of your fame; I stand in awe of your deeds, Lord. Repeat them in our day, in our time make them known; in wrath remember mercy. In fear, in dread, in anxiety, in hopelessness, remember hope. Remember possibility. Remember what God did in the past and thank him for it THEN ASK HIM TO DO IT AGAIN. Requests: Be careful for nothing; but in every thing by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known unto God. Emphasis on requests: a polite demand for something due to you—like when you get a reminder to pay your credit card bill. Like they ask you nicely = remind you when it's due. But it's not really a request; it's a polite demand. You have to pay the bill. Dear God, HELP. Thank you for helping me in the past + I thank you in advance because I know you're going to help me again. That's who you are. Now please give me peace in my body. Then the verse that follows this 4-step formula is this: “And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.” “Peace” here in the GREEK: to make one; whole, to be put back together. BE CAREFUL FOR NOTHING. PRAY. ASK. THANK. POLITELY DEMAND. PEACE—then you'll go from separation back to connection—self, god + others. I don't know about you, but this feels like really beautiful news to me. When I'm in a moment of fear and disconnection: pause. Invite god into the moment. Ask for help. Thank for the past and future. Politely demand! PEACE. Peace is your portion. Peace is your legacy. Even right now, I speak peace over your body, mind, soul, spirit.

Sam and Emma host Aaron Kleinman, director of research for the States Project at Future Now, to discuss the upcoming elections in Virginia and how they serve as a testing ground for how the Democrats can get out the vote in the upcoming midterms. First, Aaron, Emma, and Sam dive into the recent revelations in the VA legislature, as for the first time in decades they've had a majority that genuinely acts to help people, passing bills bolstering voting rights, expanding school breakfast and lunch, capping insulin prices, and generally serving to improve the lives of Virginians. They also walk through the state of the Right in VA, as the Big Lie and Critical Race Theory have seriously energized their base, with a member of the Big Lie legal team likely to win a seat in the House of Delegates. Looking forward, Aaron explores the similarities we can see and the lessons we can learn from Gavin Newsom's success in the CA Recall and the value of negative partisanship, discussing the importance of capitalizing on Trump ties while still centering actual issues and policy platforms, and exploring the role of Democrats on a national level in setting the narrative heading into both these VA elections, and the 2022 midterms as a whole. Lastly, they cover the recent revisions on redistricting and what they suggest about the future blueprint for the Republican Party, before they cover actions we can take to help bolster the democratic candidates running in key VA elections. Emma and Sam also cover the disgusting bully of Sinema by constituents attempting to speak with her despite not donating massive amounts to her campaign, and touch on Facebook's social media monopoly in the shadow of yesterday's whistleblowing and their six-hour outage. And in the Fun Half: Nomiki, Emma, and Sam discuss the inappropriate actions of activists that have been accosting Sinema and Manchin without first donating five figures as well as Joe Biden's response, before they take on the dog-whistling behind the emphasis on “means testing,” and explore how Biden has been responding to Manchin and Sinema's undermining of his agenda. They also touch on the debt ceiling, Dave Rubin's off-brand Tucker Carlson shtick, the FBI's raiding of the NYPD Sheriff's Union office, and the horrendous handling of refugees and immigration by the Biden Admin, plus, your IMs!
