Going through business challenges? You will get to the other side
Eleven years ago, my wife and I watched a great new Hollywood movie that just had hit the DVD shelves called Fun With Dick and Jane. Our children were much younger at the time and so we used to tuck them into bed and our ‘date night’ was a rented DVD on a Saturday night. […]
As a Christian in business, the numbers still matter
I was reading this article on My Christian Daily recently by church consultant and former Lifeway CEO, Thom Rainer, which, as a businessperson and not a ministry leader, really spoke to me. Thom refers to the importance of numbers and why churches need to keep a close eye on their numbers – both their revenue […]
Is your opportunity actually right in front of you?
Many people are amazed by those who are successful in business. Many treat it like it is a science, or there is a secret code that has to be unlocked with a special key – which is only reserved for a select few. I have watched interviews on Youtube with business people, where the interviewer […]
Is there a silver bullet to gaining success?
We used to have a great staff member on our team, but he was always pressing – and pressuring – me to come up with a “silver bullet” in our business to accelerate growth. His role was made easier with the bigger our network was and thus the more traffic our websites attracted. In his […]
When you don’t know where you’re going, will you ask for help?
We have a large tree on the corner of our property that at about this time of each year, it loses every leaf on it. If the wind blows from the north, the leaves land in the pool, but if the wind is from the south, then they go all over the sidewalk. The wind […]
The power of advertising: how are you positioning your business?
We own a number of editorial sites, and like all publishers, we use some of Google’s ad inventory on our sites to bring in extra income. Accordingly, I was reading an article on My Christian Daily just today when two of the ads that were served up were the same – with a slight difference. […]
After 2020, are you waiting for things to return to normal?
2020 was a tough year. Nobody in business will doubt that. However, as we have kicked over and into 2021, there are a lot of people waiting for things to return to normal. But what if they don’t? There is a very good chance that the business world has changed and that the world we […]
Are you taking your business to God?
Business is tough, the economy is about to go through an interesting phase and so there is a lot of uncertainty in our world at present. As a Christian in business, are you bringing your business before God? Do you find a time each day to just stop and sit with your Creator and give […]
What’s the next play in your business?
My wife and I had three children very close together. Consequently, when they were little, we ended up buying piles of DVDs to keep them occupied – and us sane – on those long days before pre-school and school. At the time, the kid’s group our kids loved the most, The Wiggles, made the majority […]
Alibaba billionaire founder’s advice that might just help you
I was sent the video below by a colleague recently. My days are very full and I often don’t stop to watch these sorts of videos, but for some reason I did. Jack Ma is no ordinary guy. Forbes states that his net worth is just shy of $50 billion. Just overnight, I read that […]
The danger of jumping before you’re ready
In Australia, right now, I have been following the story of a rugby coach who is in all sorts of bother. The quick story is that a few years ago, he had a stellar season with the side he was coaching and he won the rookie coach of the year award. He caught the eye […]
Because vision is where it all starts
For a long time, I have been a major admirer of Sir Martin Sorrell. While you might not know his name, you may have head of advertising agencies like Ogilvy, or Young & Rubicon. And if you haven’t heard of them, then simply switch on the TV and watch for the major brands’ advertisements. His […]
COVID-19 is the perfect time to get your business in order
I don’t know about you, but I don’t have a lot of spare time in my life. Between working, going to church and chasing around four children, there is not a lot of spare time. And that is not necessarily a good thing. When we’re racing around and chasing our tales, we are so busy […]
