Is Everyone Clear About Why Your Business Exists?

As President/CEO of our family’s automotive retail business, I regularly get the privilege of welcoming all new employees into our company.   As part of our orientation and new hire training process, I go over our company history (three generations!) along with a deep dive of our company’s mission, vision, and core values statements.   Unfortunately, many businesses either completely ignore or gloss over the idea of mission, vision, and values statements.  Among those business that have taken the steps to create these statements,… Read more

One Proven Way to Control Technology Overload

Scripture admonishes us to “think on these things,” to “meditate day and night” on truth, and to “study to show ourselves approved unto God.” And yet, the very technology that made it easier than ever to do so, can also make it harder than ever to do so—if we don’t control technology overload.

In spite of God’s previous blessings, why is it the mountain in front of us in the here and now always seems to be the biggest one we’ve ever faced?
