‘Seize The Day’ – Starting Today!

By Robert D. Foster In the movie, “The Dead Poets Society,” actor Robin Williams plays the role of a highly creative, somewhat eccentric college professor of literature.

How God Builds Your Faith – Dead Ends

By Rick Warren “At that time we were completely overwhelmed, the burden was more than we could bear, in fact we told ourselves that this was the end. Yet we believe now that we had this experience of coming to the end of our tether that we might learn to trust, not in ourselves, but in God who can raise the dead” (2 Corinthians 1:8-9 PH).

We commonly speak about happiness and being happy, whether it concerns finalizing a contract, attracting a new client, making a sale, receiving a promotion or a pay raise, or finding a new job we feel certain will be more fulfilling and rewarding. Such events make us happy. But when was the last time you heard someone speak about experiencing joy? Tags:  Joy, Happiness

When Work And Family Collide

By John D. Beckett BUSINESS DILEMMA EDITION Maria had been preparing for this day for several months, and her Saturday morning piano recital was nearly here. She found it difficult to think about anything else. Best of all, she was excited because her daddy would be coming! Her anticipation helped her overlook all the times he had missed other such events because of his work, which often involved making business trips out of town.

Foundational, Biblical Principles Of Investing

By Austin Pryor & Mark Biller Our clients often come to us seeking advice on what investments to make, when to make those investments, and how to receive the greatest return on the funds they invest. Many proven principles undergird the counsel we give to our clients, but even before we do that, it is imperative for us to recognize what we all are up against - the perils and pitfalls that can prevent us from achieving our financial goals.

It All Comes Down To Attitude

By Robert J. Tamasy “You have exactly the right attitude to handle this situation.” “You need to do something about changing your attitude. It is terrible!” Obviously these statements are two ends of the extreme, but realistically, what difference does our attitude make in our day-to-day responsibilities in the workplace? If you are properly trained, have the right skills and experience, and receive enough opportunities, can success be far behind? Tags:  Attitude, Wisdom, Hardship
