Pay For Your Home in Cash BONUS Info

I wanted to post something really cool in regard to yesterday’s e-mail.

A few hours after hitting send on it, I received this from my good friend Ricardo-

I mentioned the book Good to Great yesterday, and my buddy said this addition to it by the author was an amazing read to add to it.

In Ricardo’s words, “Good To Great in the Social Sectors is my faith book not written by or about faith.” I haven’t read it yet, but Ricardo is a guy whose instincts I trust.

If you’re involved in NGO’s, faith communities like churches, or other social enterprises, you’ll want to check it out. You can find it on Amazon HERE.

Now, I asked Ricardo if I could mention his gift, but I didn’t warn him I’d be bragging on him a bit too.

HERE is his public face online, so you can follow him. Ricardo is a true friend that I know from churches near my home. For years, he’s worked in France as a missionary and served in churches there. In addition, he’s also worked with refugees in other nations to minister to and serve them. Because he’s fluent in French, he worked with people from primarily French speaking nations in Africa. At a time when refugees the world over were being hated on, my buddy was making lifelong friends with folks who’d lost everything.

I know it may sound cliche, but this man would give up everything he had if someone in need asked him for it. A real, true to life, willing to give the shirt off his back kind of guy.

He’s supported mostly by folks in the states that believe in his mission, so check him out and throw him some support.

Can Taking Photos of Trash Change Your World?

Category : Coaching

I recently came across an article about a janitor at a U.S. border crossing processing and detention facility. The article made me both incredibly sad and angry at the same time on so many different levels. The janitor, who was also a photographer, starting taking and photographing the seized and trashed belongings of migrants coming into the United States.

Now, before this gets political in your mind, I beg you to consider a different point-of-view. I’m not trying to change your mind on how you feel about walls, borders, immigrants, the President, or any of that stuff. You don’t know my opinion on this, and I’m not revealing it here. I want you to consider the people side of things and think about it in terms of your own life and business.

1. Are there things you need to shed in your life to make a positive change? I’m not really a minimalist. I live more on the side of an essentialist philosophy in life. Have only the possessions you absolutely need or love. These folks show up with little and leave with even less.

2. Is there a place you want to be or a journey you need to take where it’s worth giving up EVERYTHING to do it? Immigrants and refugees are willing to do this, usually for safety or a better life. Are you?

3. Are there policies, practices, or habits in place that keep you from doing the right thing when you need to? The janitor may likely get into trouble with the government for exposing their practices in this. They take everything and simply throw it away. Even cash, toilet paper, Bibles, and other essentials. This simply dehumanizes people who get processed into America.

I’ve toured the Holocaust Museum in Washington DC several times, and one of the most emotionally draining displays there for me was gazing upon piles of items taken from Jews who were processed into concentration camps. I’m not comparing the two events, but simply the practice. In that respect, I help a lot of clients that sometimes have policies and rules in place that dehumanize their customers and turn them into numbers. If you think I’m making that up, try calling your local Internet or phone provider for something. Tell me if you feel like a valued customer when you’re done. It pains me to see small businesses do this.

I want you to go read the article on the janitor right HERE. If the link is broken, just Google “Janitor Preserves the Seized Belongings of Immigrants”.

Let the emotion of it sink in.

Then I want you to sit back and ponder my words above and how this man’s actions can make you a better person or business owner.

If I can help you on your journey, reach out.
