This vlog contains my most recent thoughts as to where I am finding value in the available social media platforms.
VERY IMPORTANT UPDATE TO THIS VIDEO: I don't know how it happened, but when I was recording this vlog, I completely forgot to mention Youtube & Instagram. The following video is a new vlog that corrects my error.
For the past several years, I've made it a practice to always keep a list, available in plain site, of the top five to ten priorities of my business pursuits. This list is always ranked with the highest priority at the top.
When committing things to my calendar, I always attempt to find a way to “say yes” to anything that will help me find greater success in my top three business pursuits. I will occasionally “say yes” to commitments related to other priorities that are on the list. The higher the priority, the more likely it is that I'll “say yes.” If I'm asked to commit to something that is not on this list, it's almost certain that I'll “say no” to such a commitment.
In this episode of Podcast Answer Man, why I was recently inspired to make a significant shift in my business priorities. I realized that something, extremely important to the success of my business, was completely missing from this list. I hope that my sharing this will help inspire others to be more intentional about the things that they work on each day.
Also in this episode…
I talk about my upcoming speaking gigs and the talks that I plan to give.
Jim Bramham asked for my thoughts on what to do when you have done an interview for your podcast and then decide that you don't want to publish that interview.
How do you balance your business life and your faith?
I'm often complimented on how well I consistently share my faith through the content that I create for Podcast Answer Man without ever sounding “too strong” or “preachy.” These comments tend to take me by surprise as I feel that I rarely talk openly about my faith in the content that I am creating.
How Do You Balance Your Business Life & Your Faith?
Recently, Jared sent me a message stating that he's now entered the entrepreneurial world after having been employed in a traditional professional ministry position. He wanted to know how I was able to find a balance between my business life and my faith.
He went on to state that through his business endeavors, he now has a lot of new friends, acquaintances and business partners that he would like to share his faith with. However, he is concerned about potentially ruining those relationships by going in too strong and sounding too preachy.
In forming his question to me, he also stated that he has invested in these relationships and now wants to know how he can leverage these relationships so that he can introduce his faith through his personal witnessing, in an effort to share the gospel with them.
A majority of this episode is devoted to my response to Jared's request for advice in this area. The topic starts at 16 minutes and 43 seconds. (00:16:43)
