Jesus Culture Leadership Podcast

Words cannot describe the greatness that is the Jesus Culture Leadership Podcast. There has only been one other podcast that I’ve loved as much as I love JCLP and that would be Kris Vallotton’s. A little confession here: I am famous for binging on sermons, podcasts, worship sets, etc. I have my favorites that I press play and will listen to for hours on end, anywhere from 6 to 8+ hours at a time. The JC Leadership Podcast is definitely one of my most popular binges. One of the joys of owning your own business and working from home is being able to listen to whatever you want whenever you want while you work. So, in case you’ve wondered what my days look like as a small business owner, this is it: Jesus, coffee, business, sermons, reading, podcasts… Pure bliss. The idea of this post came to me just a few moments ago as I was listening to the JCLP “Ambition” episodes from 2013 for the 10th time. I’m listening to part 2 as I type!

From message clips to wisdom, interviews, books, music, blogs, sports, and more the podcast covers multiple areas of life and highlights ones who are leading well and representing the Kingdom in all realms of life. Whether you’re leading in large or small places, in the church or business, education or entertainment, in family or in the office I guarantee you will find inspiration in the reality and transparency that this group provides on the JC Podcast. The amazing full time podcast hosts include Banning, Zack, Becky, and Dean. Along with these greats are numerous other guest hosts each month. This JCLP team provides a constant well of resources to us leaders around the world. With segments such as  Banning’s Book Club, Becky’s Book Nook, In The GameThe Deans List,  and In The Spot Light, JCLP covers everyone’s favorite subjects.

For those of you who are loyal JCLP listeners and fans you’ve heard of the e-book and physical book duel, the infamous Banning vs. Becky rival. I just have to say, as much as I love and respect Banning as a leader, I am ALL for Becky’s Book Nook! There is nothing better then having a physical book in your hands, the smell of the pages, the sound of every turn, margins to make notes in, lines to highlight, and so on. It is Heaven. E-books will never come close in comparison. Although, I sadly admit that I have downloaded a handful of e-books on my iPad…in the past. Most of which are books that are either out of print or I wasn’t willing to wait for an amazon order at the time. BUT, it’s been a long time since I’ve visited any of those e-books. Back to the important stuff, keep and eye out for Becky’s Book Nook on the JCLP podcast episodes. You won’t be sorry.

In the great debate: Are you an e-book or physical book reader? Do tell..

As you probably have noticed thus far, I love every aspect of the wonderful Jesus Culture Leadership Podcast. I must say though, one of my favorite segments is the one dedicated to writers. Introduced in episode #10  is the famous Dean’s List by the man himself, Dean Deguara. Dean is the Director of Resources for Jesus Culture, an inspiring leader, and a wonderful writer. To name a few. Dean has been writing his own leadership blog for years now, a blog that I regularly read and follow. As should you. (Another feature/post for another time, for sure.) As the author of The Backseat Leader Dean encourages leaders in all areas of life and ministry to live up to our full potential and callings, even when we are serving and leading from the backseat. As someone who’s lead a great blog himself Dean chooses leaders who are making a difference through writing and blogging and features them on the Dean’s List once a month.

I remember the day well. The day I received the direct message via twitter saying I would be featured on an upcoming episode of the JCLP as one of The Dean’s Lists featured bloggers. In my sincere attempts to not sound braggadocios….It is a pretty big deal! lol I felt, and still do, completely honored that a leader I look up to would choose me and my writings to share with the “10’s and 20’s” of JCLP listeners and leaders around the world. Not only that, but my name would be talked about on a podcast that I’ve faithfully followed and gleaned from for two years straight. In the podcast episode “Leading For Transformation Part 2Dean features my blog and I, as well as a Valentine article I wrote for Scarlet Heart Magazine’s February issue. It can be assumed that this episode would be my favorite. Let’s be real. Be sure to download it, give it a listen, and tell me what you think!

I said ALL of that to exhort and encourage you to head on over and check out the Jesus Culture Leadership Podcast. I hope, after reading this, you have more than enough reasons. Hit that subscribe button on iTunes and start from the beginning, episode #1 and onward. Dig into this well of wisdom and don’t miss out on yet another opportunity to grow as a leader. You will be glad you did. 

God is for your success! And so are the leaders pouring out through this podcast. 
Blessings!

→My Story←

I’ve owned two businesses in my lifetime and I plan to own a handful more. My first little business that I started was during my sophomore year in High School. It began as a Home Ec project and I felt the grace to turn it into a small business project. I made a small line of all natural and organic scrubs and lip balms in various scents and flavors. Up front, I invested a certain amount of money, invented some solid recipes, researched different wholesale organic retailers for all my ingredients, found the perfect sites to order my jars and tubes from, made my own labels. Shortly after I was offered free shelf space in a local day spa to sell my products.

I was curious how things would play out since it was my first little business adventure (besides the countless lemonade stands) and I had no experience. I decided to pretty much create and produce the products until I completely sold out of the bulk order of containers that I had purchased. If the scrubs and balms didn’t sell then I was willing to pull back and take my losses but that didn’t happen.  They sold well. I had sold out of all my products and went through all my containers. I decided to restock enough to keep the items going for another short period of time. I must have sold around 100 lip balms and probably 50-75 scrubs in a few months. I used up all my ingredients and counted my profit. It was a small adventure in the business realm but for a sophomore in high school in meant minimal babysitting endeavors that year.

 12345

My second business that I started is Grace Co. Handmade. This business is solely handmade and hand crafted goods. My mom taught me how to sew at 5 years old and after years of making people handmade gifts for all sorts of occasions I finally made the leap to turn it into a business. For a handful of years I was being flooded with encouraging and prophetic words about business, inventions, leadership, etc. The mindset and love for the industry was still there from my first business adventure. That first one went really well and I figured it was worth a shot.

Why not make money doing something that you love and which you are already doing for free. I did it because I loved making things for others. I liked creating things that others could enjoy. I love the ability to take something, a picture, idea, invention, or dream and turn it into a reality – for others to enjoy none the less. The items I had been making  just happened to be things that were worth paying for. I really wasn’t in it for the money. The money, getting paid to do what you love, is simply a fringe benefit. There’s nothing wrong with making money – and a lot of it. It’s all about the heart. In this case, my heart was in it for other reasons besides the money.

The main reason why I decided to turn my hobby into a legitimate business was because I wasn’t sure what I was going to do when I graduated high school. I was exhausting all my options with the Lord and never heard a “yes” for everywhere I wanted to go and what I wanted to do. What I did feel Him speak to me was to “do what was in front of me and do it well”. When He spoke that to me, the only thing I could imagine He may be referring to was the idea that I had been dreaming of which was to start my own business..again.

While dreaming, I had a number of people come to me and tell me about “all the money you could make” selling my handmade gifts. Between the lord, friends, and my momma reminding me of the words and the gifting that was already there – I finally went for it. I started with a stock of items and then chose a name. Next I made a Facebook page,  my own make-shift logo, and graphics. I photographed my items the best I could. I wrote up all my product listings. As far as advertising, I used the subtle word-of-mouth method and went from there. I was too scared to open an Etsy shop at first because I had no clue how it worked and was worried I would accidentally steal someones money or never get paid, etc.

So, in the beginning I sold my items on a trust-basis through my Facebook page. By the grace of God it worked and carried me through my first 9 months of business. Customers would email me their orders, send me a check, and once the check was received I would ship the product. It worked well, surprisingly. I would NOT recommend that method of sales. lol I did have one customer try and rip me off. That’s where the gift of discernment comes in handy. I decided that a pair of earrings weren’t worth going against my character and I dropped the situation.

After that occurred I was much more interested in figuring out how an online shop functions. I Googled for what seemed like hundreds of hours and days. Then one day.. I finally I did it. I set up shop! I revamped my logo and graphics. Then spent even more hours writing listings, photographing product, calculating costs, and determining the shipping expenses, etc. I started advertising my listings in all my social media corners, Facebook, Instagram, and twitter. I waited a dreadful month before I made my first sale online. I thought I had ruined it… Maybe online wasn’t best option. No ones purchased a thing. Then it came! My first order, from San Ramon, CA. And after that first sale they started rolling in. The safety and security of running your business online is worth the wait, effort, and hours upon hours of diligence and care. It will take time for the world to get familiar with you but once that happens there’s no limit to the potential of your excellence and growth.

Do you own and run your own business? Or maybe you have some dreams in your heart, ideas, and business names picked out! Leave me a comment below, I’d love to hear about them!

Blessings!

20 Things From My Twenty Years of Existence

20 Things From My Twenty Years of Existence

20

Today I turn TWENTY. Time has flown by. I thought I’d share a few little details about me and the past 20 years of my life.

Enjoy.

You may or may not that…

ONE: I wrote two books before the age of ten. Both are unpublished, of course, but my 10 year old self is still proud. lol I’ve always loved writing.

TWO: My most ordered meal is a Caesar Salad.

THREE: I love Stevie Wonder. When I was really little I was convinced he’d sing at my wedding one day. We shall see.

FOUR: The only person who can quote You’ve Got Mail more than me is my brother Jared. Best movie ever.

FIVE: I don’t watch very much TV. With one exception… I’ve seen every episode of Gilmore Girls at least a few hundred times. Same goes for my mom and brother. It’s a family thing.

SIX: I love buying gifts for people! It’s just fun. I like to listen to what people are saying and then find ways to bless them with surprise gifts.

SEVEN: I buy more books then I do anything else.

EIGHT: My favorite things to buy myself are purses and books. They go well together don’t you think?

NINE: May is, of course, the best month of the year. For me, it’s filled with countless birthdays including my parents, close friends, family members and my own. I get specific reasons to celebrate a ton of people in my life who I love. It’s also the start of summer, cherry season, and blueberry picking.

TEN: My most ordered Starbucks drink is a Venti Iced Black Coffee with one pump of Vanilla and zero cream. Mmm

ELEVEN: My favorite place to visit would be Bethel Church in Redding. Redding is nice too but Bethel is like the spiritual Disneyland to me.

TWELVE: I get wicked motion sick which means, no roller coaster, no theme parks, no fast cars, no intentional adrenalin, lol no spinning in my chair, etc. But I’m convinced God is going to heal me of that. Then I will go to Disneyland to celebrate.

THIRTEEN: I am a loyal Orbit gum chewer. There is no other gum for me. I go through one to two packs a week. We have a bowl filled with packs of gum in our kitchen right now. Why have a bowl full of candy when you can have gum?

FOURTEEN: I’m a baker. Nothing fancy I just really love to bake. Not because I like spending forever in a kitchen a midst the flour and sugar mess but I love to feed people. Even more so then I love to bake.

FIFTEEN: I’ve started two business. One was meant for a short season while I was in high school and did wonderfully. The other I started when I was 18 years old and it’s still going strong. I plan to start and own a few others in my lifetime. I love business.

SIXTEEN: I’ve been on two missions excursions so far and am currently planning number three. The summer of 2010 I stayed in San Cristobal, Dominican Republic for one month and interned with some of my favorite missionaries in the earth. Fall 2013 I visited Carrefour, Haiti for a week on a missions trip.

SEVENTEEN: My plan is to set heart and foot on as many nations as I can before I go. Not to collect plane tickets or to bulk up my, “where have you been” list but to spread the love of the Father to the nations.

EIGHTEEN: I can’t stand bracelets. I’m a ring and earring girl all the way. Sometimes I throw in an occasional necklace here or there, which is almost always my absolute Giving Key cause it’s my favorite.

NINETEEN: My mom is my absolute best friend. I have no shame in saying that. She is an incredible mom and women of God. Her constant faithfulness and persistence in pursing the Lord and loving those around her inspires me. Love you,  Momma! xoxoxo

TWENTY: There is nothing I am more sure of then God. Even when I have trouble explaining Him, when I don’t understand what He’s doing or what I think He’s not doing, when i’m close and in times where I’ve been far – I’m still sure of His love, faithfulness, and extravagant grace.

If you don’t know, now you know.. 

5 Amazing Articles You Should Read

5 Amazing Articles You Should Read

Number ONE

“How to Write Inspired”

by Dean Deguara

I absolutely love Dean’s article on the subject of writing inspired. “For the author, blogger, communicator or song writer; inspiration is the key component that fills our stadium with fans, captivates our community, and builds a committed base of followers that keeps them coming back for more.” This article of his is encouraging and uplifting. How to Write Inspired is a great champion post for all of us writers out there. Read it and be inspired.

Number TWO

“The Gay Community and That One Time Jesus Called Me the ‘N-word’”

by Sammy Adebiyi

 This post wrecked me the first time I read it. Filled with power house truths this article by Sammy Adebiyi is an eye opener. It’s raw and real. A must read for anyone who is willing. “There is someone that I love even though I don’t approve of what he does. There is someone I accept though some of his thoughts and actions revolt me. There is someone I forgive though he hurts the people I love the most. That person is……me.” CS LEWIS

Number THREE 

“Chivalry Is Not Dead”

by  Geraud Brumfield

I read this post a few months back while browsing one of my favorite online magazines, Scarlet Heart Mag, and found this gem. Ladies, there really are great men out there who genuinely love God and want to honor you as His daughter and the precious gift that you are. Give them credit. “Historically speaking, chivalrous acts were shown toward women to display honor, bravery, and courage. What if men began to challenge other men to live up to this outrageous love?” Geraud does a wonderful job in his article at exposing the great men that God is raising up. He is encouraging you to love outrageously and extravagantly.

Number FOUR

“Bad Reasons Not to Evangelize”

by Steven Mattson

“In our current cultural climate, comfort trumps controversy, and we’ll do whatever it takes to avoid embarrassment, conflict and unwanted attention.” This statement could not be more true. Stevens article on evangelism is convicting and encouraging. It’s really not about us but we’ve become so self-centered when it comes to sharing our faith. I love evangelism even though it can be one of the scariest leaps of faith out there. These words stir my heart.

“18 Things Highly Creative People Do Differently”

by Carolyn Gregoire 

Well, this sure was an encouraging read seeing as though I do many of these things that Carolyn is relating to the highly creative person. I’m sure you will also find your mark somewhere in there. “Creative people tend to be intrinsically motivated — meaning that they’re motivated to act from some internal desire, rather than a desire for external reward or recognition. “

Saint Patrick Once Prayed This Prayer

Happy Saint Patrick’s Day, Everyone!

This isn’t a holiday dedicated to leprechauns,  four leaf clovers, Ireland, pinching people, or even green beer. It’s a day to remember the historic life of a man who loved God and His people. St. Patrick’s Day is a time to celebrate the heroic nature of a man who lived surrendered and set apart, giving his all to the cause and fame of Christ.

st-patrick

The Prayer of St. Patrick

I arise today
Through the strength of heaven;
Light of the sun,
Splendor of fire,
Speed of lightning,
Swiftness of the wind,
Depth of the sea,
Stability of the earth,
Firmness of the rock.

I arise today
Through God’s strength to pilot me;
God’s might to uphold me,
God’s wisdom to guide me,
God’s eye to look before me,
God’s ear to hear me,
God’s word to speak for me,
God’s hand to guard me,
God’s way to lie before me,
God’s shield to protect me,
God’s hosts to save me
Afar and anear,
Alone or in a multitude.

Christ shield me today
Against wounding
Christ with me, Christ before me, Christ behind me,
Christ in me, Christ beneath me, Christ above me,
Christ on my right, Christ on my left,
Christ when I lie down, Christ when I sit down,
Christ in the heart of everyone who thinks of me,
Christ in the mouth of everyone who speaks of me,
Christ in the eye that sees me,
Christ in the ear that hears me.

I arise today
Through the mighty strength
Of the Lord of creation.

If you don’t know the life testimony of St. Patrick, here is a great retell of his story. Although much information is unverifiable, this seems to be one of the most common and credible accounts  of Patrick’s life. {www.catholic.org}
