A Year's Worth Of Work: In Bullet Time

A Year's Worth Of Work: In Bullet Time

13 months has passed since I became a full time contractor. With a steady volume of client projects over the last 13 months, our family has embraced my life as a full time freelancer.

A large portion of the work has included coaching business leaders through a visioneering process to help them get focus and organized. The remaining amount of work has included a variety of strategic and tactical marketing support. At the end of the day, I am helping business leaders resolve their internal communication problems and external marketing challenges. 

Here is a bulleted list of some of the work I've been involved in over the past year.

Did You Know We Almost Got Sued?

In the fall of 2010, I came face to face with a Sheriff for my first time. I was sitting down at my office desk when I looked over to see an officer in uniform enter. My eyes immediately darted away as my mind ran through numerous scenarios of why he was there. Bracing for the worst case scenario, I turned away hoping he wouldn't see me.

Life Reflection Point - April 24th 2015

Last week, I attended a wonderful Leadership event called Transformational Leadership. As a result, my friend Todd Miechiels shot a quick video snapshot capturing where I am in my life right now. I hope this can be encouraging and helpful for you :-)

The Water Had Risen - The Cellar Journey Part 4

This is part 4 of The cellar journey, a multi-part fictional story. Click here to view all parts of the Cellar Journey.


The water had risen to the point where I was forced to tread water. My muscles ached. 
 
"I don't know how much longer I can take this," I thought to myself.
 
There were  2 feet of space remaining and only a few minutes before the room was completely full. It seemed drowning was going to be my fate, at least if this creature didn't kill me on the way. And then I saw it again, the creature swam by continuing to circle me. It was sleek in nature with exposed and menacing teeth. This was a creature designed to kill.

Let Me Introduce You To McKeever's First Ride

Let Me Introduce You To McKeever's First Ride

On April 18th, 2015 there will be a special event going on at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds, McKeever's First Ride. Deenie McKeever, a friend, and client, is the visionary for this up and coming movement.

Deenie and I met shortly after moving to Atlanta. In fact, she was a client of a tech support company I worked with after moving here. After the tech company shut down, we continued to work together. She continued to friend and mentor me as I struggled through my own journey in life, but her love of helping people did not stop with me. From 2006-08, an idea to help injured veterans by using the healing spirit of the horse inspired her to build something new. In 2009, she launched her first ever, McKeever's First Ride event.

What Is Within Us? Our Core Values!

What are core values?

They come from within us and originate from the source of our creation. They are guidelines of how we believe we, and others, ought to live. They are what we determine as most important in life.  They are a set of our core beliefs founded on what we have determined to be of the highest priority truth.

Learning New Trades: Prezi & Infographics

In the last year, my new journey has opened up many possibilities and opportunities for me to learn and explore. This has allowed me to learn new skills and participates in projects I would not have anticipated. One example is in my recent work with The Third Bucket. The Third Bucket is a Christian parable to encourage business owners to give. The need to visually communicate the process described in the book, was important.

The Cellar Journey Part 3

I Decided To Hold Onto The Last Book - The Cellar Journey Part 3

This is part 3 of The cellar journey, a multi-part fictional story. Click here to view all parts of the Cellar Journey.


I decided to hold onto the last book I read. Something about it was comforting to have it in my possession.

Scanning the room, I quickly realized the room was round. The bookshelf wrapped around the left side of the room to a door straight ahead. On the right side of the door was a wall with writing all over. Phrases, which mostly seemed to revolve around the word why, streamed across the wall in different sizes and colors.

Mission. Our How.

Mission. Our How.

What is Mission?

Mission is our how. 
 
It moves us forward. It is how we will travel from our starting point to our finish line. 
 
How we live out our purpose and arrive at our vision is another way to look at mission.
 
There are many ways to achieve our desired result and arrive at our destination. When we travel to another city, there are multiple vehicles and routes we can take to get there. Each route is a potential mission and each has its strengths and weaknesses. 
 
Which way will we take to get there?

Purpose. Our Why.

Purpose. Our Why.

What is purpose?

Purpose is our why.

It is what we believe and it pushes us forward.

Purpose provides the energy and excitement to start an idea we have discovered.

Purpose is why we get up in the morning instead of staying in bed. It is why we exist and why we live. It illuminates the meaning of our lives. When all else fails and we have lived from our purpose, we have succeeded.

Is there an idea you have thought about doing but have yet to start? A business, a book, a relationship?
