What is your typical day, and how do you make it productive?
When you Rise, Parise the Lord Always! The Day is filled with Praise and Gratitude for what the Lord has done in our Life! The Greatness that we have witnessed and the Greatness that is to come.
How do you bring ideas to life?
Ask the Lord for discernment!
James 1:5 If any of you lacks wisdom, let him ask God, who gives generously to all without reproach, and it will be given to him.
What’s one trend that excites you?
More and More people around the world are getting to know Christ through people surrounding them. In 1900, only 5.4% of non-Christians could identify a Christian they knew. That percentage has risen to 18.3% today. By 2050, 1 in 5 non-Christians (20%) will know a follower of Jesus and have the opportunity to hear the gospel from them.
What is one habit that helps you be productive?
Sometimes it’s about what not to do instead of what to do to be productive. Do not stress or have anxiety. It just slows you down or worse, it stops you completely.
Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to tha Lord.
What advice would you give your younger self?
The best advice is twofold. The first and foremost is to turn my life to Christ decades earlier. The latter is just as equally important, Always Stay on the King’s Path!
Turn to Christ –
Let the wicked forsake their ways and the unrighteous their thoughts.
Let them turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on them, and to our God, for he will freely pardon.
Always Stay on the King’s Path! –
“Enter by the narrow gate. For the gate is wide and the way is easy that leads to destruction, and those who enter by it are many.
Tell us something you believe that almost nobody agrees with you on?
This important belief is a fact. I would not say however that almost no one agrees with me on it, but there are some nay sayers. Eternal Life!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life.
In my Father’s house are many rooms. If it were not so, would I have told you that I go to prepare a place for you?
What is the one thing you repeatedly do and recommend everyone else do?
Spend time alone with the Lord! Life seems to be so busy at times that we cannot hear what the Lord is trying to tell us. First thing, in the morning when you get out of bed go to a quiet place, close your eyes and put your head up. Spend time with the Lord to be Grateful and pray for him to guide you in all things. The Lord will always speak to you. I know this from personal experience.
But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well.
When you feel overwhelmed or unfocused, what do you do?
Rejoice and give thanks. We tend to focus on all the things we have to do. We also focus on the things that are terrible or things that are not working out in our lives. We need to focus on the things that are good. We need to be grateful for the wins you have received. The losses are not losses if we learn from them. You only lose when you haven’t learned something. Rejoice and be grateful!
Rejoice always, pray without ceasing, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus for you.
1 Thessalonians 5:16–18
What is one strategy that has helped you grow your business or advance in your career?
Focus on this day. Focus on being a better person than you were yesterday. Each day is a gift. When you look at life that way you will strive to be a better you, each day.
So all of us who have had that veil removed can see and reflect the glory of the Lord. And the Lord—who is the Spirit—makes us more and more like him as we are changed into his glorious image.
2 Corinthians 3:18
What is one failure in your career, how did you overcome it, and what lessons did you take away from it?
Wow, Great question. In life, we have so many failures. Some large and some small. The largest failure in life was the ability to tell people close to me that I love and appreciate them. When I turned my life to Christ it came naturally for me to communicate that to people. The lesson to that is … Don’t take a lifetime to change your ways!
What is one business idea you’re willing to give away to our readers?
This is more of a game changer than a business idea. We all want the magic bullet for success in our lives. Financially, Spiritually, Physically, Emotionally, and Mentally. We as human beings refuse to look at the things that need to be removed from our lives. We need to remove the strongholds and distractions from our lives.
No temptation has overtaken you that is not common to man. God is faithful, and he will not let you be tempted beyond your ability, but with the temptation he will also provide the way of escape, that you may be able to endure it.
1 Corinthians 10:13
What is one piece of software that helps you be productive? How do you use it?
Asana! This is a great tool to set all of your short- and long-term goals. It also has a sharing feature to get all of your family on the same page.
Do you have a favorite book or podcast you’ve gotten a ton of value from and why?
The Bible! This is the most powerful book I have ever read or encountered. The amount of wisdom that you receive in just a few pages is beyond compare. Although some of the chapters I’ve read multiple times the meaning deepens every time. I implore whoever reads this to read the bible from beginnig to end, and see if after the fifth time you are still the same person. I know for sure it will change you forever. I know because it has changed me.
For the word of God is alive and active. Sharper than any double-edged sword, it penetrates even to dividing soul and spirit, joints and marrow; it judges the thoughts and attitudes of the heart.
What’s a movie or series you recently enjoyed and why?
The Chosen! It is humbling to see the trials, tribulations, miracles and grace of a time that was beyond words to describe. Every time I watch an episode I am filled with confusion. In today’s day and age, we have more conveniences than any other time on earth. We have more distractions than any other time as well. This leads me to study the Word and search deeper into the past in order to seek answers for the future. It also amazes me how more things change the more they stay the same.
- Always be Disciplined in Everything you do!
- Stay Faithful, Life is a movie not a picture. It’s not over yet!
- Forgive and be Forgiven. You cannot change the past. Repent and move forward.
- The Lord is bigger than all our problems!
- I am Grateful for this day!
