*D is for Dream. What is your Dream?*
My dream is (or better stated Faith) is 2 fold… As a Pastor of a fledgling church with a new Paradigm, I have Faith that it and its parishioners grow and prosper both in the word and glory of the creator and
in the world as well. God wants us to succeed he created us for glory. It is our ego that gets in the way. And as a speaker and new author I have Faith that the message I bring, That prospering by working with the
creator, is not only achievable, but is the only SURE way of succeeding.
*E is for Encourage. What encourages you?*
First and foremost my connection with God, whenever things get rough I go to the quiet and God is there waiting for me with the answer. After that My wife and soul mate Aristia, who uplifts me with her unwavering belief in me. And then, in business, Napoleon Hill who has inspired me to see beyond the limited viewpoints of the small minded who are content with “ALMOST ENOUGH”.
*R is for Resource. What resources do you bring to the table that makes you unique or stand out? *
A melding of science and spirituality for one thing, A B.Sci. degree in computer science and an ordination in spiritualism work together to resolve issues with logic and caring. Also having worked our way out of debt without filing bankruptcy. Lastly an ingrained belief that God want’s us to prosper and put the clues everywhere.
*R is for Ready? When did you realize you were ready for what you are doing now?*
When I was discharged from the Navy… I need a new direction and the Seminary turned out to be the way. Haven’t looked back since.
*I is for Individual. Name at least one person that you know that you feel others should learn about and why?*
Napoleon Hill… Pure and simple the man was a Inspired and Prophetic Genius. everyone should read his books,especially ‘Outwitting The Devil’.
*C is for Continue. When you fail, things look bleak or are not optimistic what makes you want to continue?*
The knowledge that you can never fail if you learn from the experience. Mistakes are normal and expected. It resets your mind to go in different directions, to think out of the box. That and the firm Knowledge that God will not steer me wrong, unless he wants me to learn from it.
*K is for Key. What keys to success can you leave for upcoming entrepreneurs and leaders? *
Always be ready to learn, from books, audio, classes, and the failures of others, whatever way you can… When your learning ends, so does your career… Trust me.
*Is there anything that we did not touch on that you would like to inspire others with?*
Only that the Creator doesn’t care what name you call him/her, or what you believe about him/her… the Creator only cares THAT you believe.
