What Dogs Can Teach You About Business

A Personal Note From Eddie What 2 huge dogs taught me about business A couple of months ago, I had the privilege and responsibility of dog sitting not one, but two massively huge dogs. After hours of watching, observing and pondering these four-legged beasts, they taught me 4 lessons on business. Lesson #1: Passion & Enthusiasm! Every day when I got home from work the dogs would enthusiastically greet me with a big lick and uncontrollable wags of the tail. I barely made it to the welcome...

Passion and Enthusiasm

Motivation Passion and Enthusiasm Enthusiasm is the mother of effort, and without it nothing great was ever achieved. ~Ralph Waldo Emerson Enthusiasm first appeared in English in 1603. The source of the word is the Greek enthousiasmos, which ultimately comes from the adjective entheos, “having God within,” formed from en, “in, within,” and theos, “God.” Originally, entheos simply meant the external enthusiasm of someone who just got born again. Over time the...

A Personal Note From Eddie This morning I received a phone call from a friend… “Hey, are you busy?”  My response was, “No, I was about to curl up in the fetal position under my desk and take a nap.” Yes, that was a very satirical response.  I’m willing to bet that no one in my circle of influence would say they are not busy. However, I think that’s the wrong question to be asking. A better question to ask is “Are you taking ground or are you just spinning your wheels?” ...

For as he thinketh in his heart…

Imagine someone getting mad at an eleven month old child who was trying to walk but fell down. Imagine that person saying “Why did you even try, I knew you would fall, you stupid worthless child. You’ll never amount to anything. You better stick to crawling.”  That would be absolutely absurd, not to mention child protection services would be knocking on their door. Would you say such mean things to a child? I would definitively hope not.   But what about the words you say to...

Law of the Farm

What would you think about a farmer who forgot to prepare the soil for planting, who gathered and sowed no seed in the spring, flaked off all summer then tried to sow, grow, and harvest a nice yield on his crop in the last part of fall? You would think he’s ludicrous! It can’t be done! Yet, we allow similar things to happen in our own lives. God’s law of the farm governs in horticulture… it also governs in all other areas of life. We all know that if it seems too good to be...

Get cheese, avoid cat

The human brain is very similar to that of the mouse. That’s why so much research is conducted using mice. Much like our brain, the mouse is wired for pretty much two things… – Get cheese, avoid cat. When we attempt to sell something to a prospect we look very much like the cat, no matter what our intentions. Buyers are wired to view sellers as cats and even the greatest deal in the world may go unnoticed because our whiskers are showing. We as Christian business owners and business...

A Personal Note From Eddie One of my favorite times to gather with friends and family is the Super Bowl. Not so much for the game itself, but for the camaraderie. It’s amazing to watch athletes at the professional level. Their drive, their tenacity, their perseverance is truly remarkable and there is definitely a reason why they call them professionals. Statistically, Payton Manning is one of the top quarterbacks to ever play the game. However, in his career he has thrown 8,452 passes but...
