What happens when your inbox is empty? What happens when all the agenda items and all the incoming emails are cleared? Time to go home. A job well done. Congratulations, you earned your paycheck. This is the factory mindset that has been drilled into us since kindergarten. You get assignments, you do your best, and you finish them.
It is at this point that we draw the line between workers and entrepreneurs, between people who work in marketing and marketers.
The challenge is NOT to empty your inbox. The challenge is not to get your boss to tell you what to do.
The challenge is to ask a two-part question: What next? What now? Asking is the hard part. (From Seth Godin “Whatcha Gonna Do With That Duck?”)
I'm a husband, father, papaw, Christ follower, pastor, businessman, insurance consultant, entrepreneur coach, and photographer.
Primarily, I'm just guy who realizes more and more that life is about relationships - life is about people! Therefore I strive to live out the Great Commandment, which Jesus said was to “love God and love others!” (Matthew 22:35-40).
I have been married to Debbie, my high school sweetheart since 1984! We are blessed with a wonderful family: my son Tyler, his wife Megan and our granddaughters Quincy and Marlow; my daughter Kristen and her husband Will.
If I can be of assistance to you in anyway, please reach out to me. I love what the late Zig Ziglar said, "You can have everything in life you want, if you will just help other people get what they want." My life goal is to serve others, and I look forward to the opportunity to serve you!
