How Clear is Your Vision?
Do you have a 20/20 vision when it comes to your leadership? Does your team walk away from your meeting clear on the mission ahead, are they confused?

How Servant Leaders Support Their Teams.
One of the most overused terms among leaders is a servant leader. Ask most well-wished leaders and this is the description they will give you for themselves. Unfortunately, their actions don't often agree with their true leadership. Servant leadership is a real thing, it is a true north to which every leader should shoot for. But be warned it will require time, effort, and patience from you. At times it will call upon you to give more than you think you have. Servant Leadership is the core of what makes a leader "legendary" in the eyes of their team members. It is the ultimate expression of selflessness. In this episode I share with you what struggles, success, and the journey I experienced while achieving this title... Believe me, the road was not smooth, and each. Much of it required me to dig deep and find the ability to lead my team to success. By the way servant leaders often find themselves in roles never before journeyed, marriage counselor, spiritual support, friend, life coach, financial advisor, conflict manager, and much more. I believe this episode will at a minimum get you gears spinning to see what is possible for you and your leadership abilities.

Tired of Losing at Life and Business? Do This…
As I watch the world around me I see an alarming trend happening. My Christian brothers and sisters are not “winning” enough. I see it from my clients and employees, we are all giving up quickly and allowing the enemy to take what is ours… with not much of a fight. We say things like “God has something better.”, “ It must not be for me.” , “ What God has for me and no one can take it away”. or He will open another door.” These are true statements in some cases but this should not be the norm for us. Let’s stop making excuses for us not doing our part. After you have prayed and heard from God, it’s now our turn to act. He told the children of Israel that they had to TAKE the land. Friends it is time for us to take our land!Today we will discuss 3 elements we need to grow in. 3 Elements that will cause us to start winning!

How to Achieve Success In Business
Be it business ownership or professional career, as a Christian, you have what it takes to succeed. Partnering with God is key. He can give you insider information. Information that can save you years of effort. Business is not easy and anyone selling you that you can only work a few hours per week and be successful is leading you down the wrong path. Business owners know that working for yourself will require you to work longer, harder, and smarter. But it is so worth the effort. Living life on your own terms is huge and so worth it! Today, I have a co-host, my wife Tika. She will share her journey to stepping out and now successfully running her business. There are so many value bombs dropped in this episode you may need to listen to it multiple times. Enjoy!
