“Get back on!”

Contemplating Turning 50…

Work for free?

handoutWhy is it that I always attract the projects that want me to work for free??? They always come in sincere and dedicated packages. “This thing or that business is going to take off.” “It’s the NEXT big thing!” That’s usually the “gist” of it. They have great ideas and NO money, almost always there’s a promise of a big payoff. Unfortunately promises don’t feed the kids or pay my mortgage.

I understand the problem, I have been there several times myself, lot’s of neat ideas that didn’t make it due to lack of money. Let’s see there was; my church media company, a bike shop, a skateboard shop, a tshirt business, mlm’s, full time design business, medical website, magazines, coupon books you name it, I’ve tried and learned the hard way that it “always takes money, to make money!” Great ideas, good intentions, partnerships etc., never make it without cash. So sorry to all you budding entrepreneurs out there, you need FUNDING! If you have some money to live off of while you pursue your “dream”, go for it, build it make it marketable so you can make money from your dream idea. But please don’t ask people along for the ride unless you have something tangible to offer them. And if they do help you please reward them for all the hardwork, let them know how much you appreciate them, and recognize that most great ideas need other peoples help to see to fruition.

Six Needs You Will Have in 2012

One thing you can be certain about in the coming year is that you can’t be certain about what is ahead. This is a great blessing, because you do not need to know. To know what is ahead and the details of what will happen would be too great a burden to carry and too great a responsibility to bear.

What you do need to know about the future is not what is ahead of you, but Who is ahead of you. It is the Lord who goes before you, is ahead of you, and is preparing the way for you. Your future is in His sure, strong, caring hands.

I am with you, and I will protect you wherever you go. One day I will bring you back to this land. I will not leave you until I have finished giving you everything I have promised you. Genesis 28:15 NLT

As you pass through the door of 2011 and enter the door of 2012, here are six of the needs you are certain to have…
1. There will be the need for prayer
2. There will be the need to trust
3. There will be the need to obey
4. There will be the need to forgive
5. There will be the need to be faithful
6. There will be the need for Jesus
