As i am writing this blog on February 19, 2015, so far i have implemented several of my 2015 business plans. The first was launched last month and I believe has led to increased business opportunities. I decided on a toll free number and obtained a vanity toll free number; 1-844-LED PROS. The toll free number replaces the old number with an area code of 661. I still receive quite a few calls from store owners using a land line and the toll free number should encourage more calls and messages when i am not available. So far, the service as exceeded my expectations. There are several vendors offering this type of service. I selected Grasshopper Another 2015 business plan is to launch 4 more sites to my existing business sites which include; Energy Efficient Devices.org, Industrial Lighting Fixtures.org, Hangar Lights.com, Hangar Lighting.com, LED Cooler Door Lights.com, Light Bulbs Unlimited.com I have already acquired two domains and will launch those sites later this year. they are Indoor Tennis Courts Lighting.com and Intelligent Lighting Controls.org. I will wait on inspiration for the other two sites.
Today my application was accepted for Global University and I begin with the Berean School of the Bible Courses. The first course selected is Christ in the Synoptic Gospels Course Description: An introductory study of our Lord’s life and times according to the Gospels of Matthew, Mark, and Luke. It examines the historical setting, His life between the Annunciation and the Ascension, and His message and method, including His parables and miracles. Organized around these three themes: (1) the world, (2) the Man, and (3) the message, this introduction helps to fuse our understanding of His life and work with our commitment to live by the values He taught and demonstrated.

ZOE Ministries Power Evangelism Program God wants His churches to grow. He wants more church growth, not just church transfers! The key to church growth God’s way is proper evangelism! Matthew 28:16-20; 2 Timothy 4:1-5 Power Evangelism Program (PEP) Ephesians 3:20 PEP is an evangelism program that’s designed to attract and draw the lost (unsaved people) to the Kingdom of God around the points of interest to them. This is very important, because God is calling for more success stories in the Body of Christ. God is calling for His churches and ministries to experience a totally different level of success. The key to PEP is understanding that whether its products, services, or even salvation, people buy for their reasons, and not yours. When we look in the Bible we can see this principle working in Jesus’s ministry. Whether it was the blind men, the lepers, the paralytic, the demon possessed man, the centurion, the woman with the issue of blood, even the rich young ruler and others. They all had one thing in common, they sought out Jesus for their reasons and not His. In order for us to become more effective in our evangelistic efforts we have to more »

FORMER AT-RISK AFRICAN AMERICAN MALE FINDS INSPIRATION THROUGH HISTORY Jamaal Brown Created the BLACK365 Knowledge Bowl to Inspire Other Youth LOS ANGELES, Calif. (FEB. 25, 2014) – High school graduation rates among African Americans are at an astronomical low. Only 47 percent of young Black men receive their high school diplomas and one in four African American males who dropout ends up in prison. The problem today is that young African Americans are not being totally empowered or inspired through their education. Jamaal Brown, an entrepreneur, scholar, and father, found the key to changing those numbers around through this phenomenal and life changing creation, the Black365 Knowledge Bowl. While in high school, Brown was sure his only choices in life were to become a drug dealer, gang member, or athlete. But it was when the voices of his ancestors began to call out from the pages of Black history that his eyes and heart opened up to a world of endless possibilities. As he began to read and study, he found his purpose in life – empower, uplift, and inspire the world through the stories of history that are rarely ever told. After becoming his high school’s first-ever African American valedictorian, more »
Here is your Friday story, A Fine Line Courtesy of Insight of the Day Tears poured from her eyes as if there was no tomorrow, and in a sense, for her, there were no tomorrows. That was her reality. Her daughter was in the Shock Trauma Intensive Care Unit (STICU), having sustained a severe traumatic brain injury (TBI) as well as numerous other injuries. The 17-year-old patient, still in a coma, had been injured two months earlier and the mother had just been told, “You know, with this kind of injury, your daughter’s current condition might be the best she’ll ever be.” The nurse who told the mother that night that terrible prognosis might have been 100% correct. But, no mother wants to hear words like that from a nurse. Mothers just want to hear, “Everything is going to be fine. Your daughter (or son) will one day be able to get married, go to school….One day this will merely be remembered as a terrible nightmare.” However, we all know that “bad things happen to good people,” and sometimes unfortunately, there is no “happy Hollywood movie ending.” No matter how hard the staff tries, people pass away at hospitals all the more »
Here is your Friday story, Unleash The Superhero In You courtesy of Bob Proctor Within every human being, exists an infinite supply of creativity, strength and wonder. You are capable of more than you know. Let me tell you about a real life Superhero I know. His name is Mike Berkson. Mike Berkson was born a few minutes after his twin brother David, on February 4th, 1989. Shortly after birth, Mike was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Doctors told his parents that he would not be able to talk and he would never be a student in a regular classroom. By the time Mike was 3, he was not only talking up a storm but had a thirst for vocabulary. Mike sets BIG goals. Mike excels in English and History, is creative in writing short stories and has ambitions in film making. Mike lives in a Chicago suburb and now attends high school. He loves rap music, Seinfeld reruns, movies, girls, and many other things most teenagers are interested in. Mike is unique in that he has to work around some obstacles in his day to day life that you and I will never be faced with. Because he is confined to more »
Here is your Friday story, What Special Someday Are We Saving For? courtesy of Bob Proctor My brother-in-law opened the bottom drawer of my sister’s bureau and lifted out a tissue-wrapped package. “This,” he said, “is not a slip. This is lingerie.” He discarded the tissue and handed me the slip. It was exquisite: silk, handmade and trimmed with a cobweb of lace. The price tag with an astronomical figure on it was still attached. “Jan bought this the first time we went to New York, at least eight or nine years ago. She never wore it. She was saving it for a special occasion. Well, I guess this is the occasion.” He took the slip from me and put it on the bed with the other clothes we were taking to the mortician. His hands lingered on the soft material for a moment. Then he slammed the drawer shut and turned to me. “Don’t ever save anything for a special occasion. Every day you’re alive is a special occasion.” I remembered those words through the funeral and the days that followed when I helped him and my niece attend to all the sad chores that follow an unexpected death.

Here is your Friday story, One Giant Leap, courtesy of Bob Proctor It was a Monday night in October 2008 when I felt a strange pain inside my chest. My body was telling me something and I needed to listen. For five years, I had been a top dog at a major coaching company. I had a prestigious title, got a ton of recognition, coached incredible people, and was making good money even as the U.S. economy was sliding down the tubes without touching the sides. The problem was that I no longer felt aligned with the company energetically. Okay, I am being nice. The truth was that the company had dismal direction from its owners and it was extremely painful to work there. This was a pathetic, sad, fear-based environment, and I felt like I had zero integrity staying. All the prestige, recognition, and money may have satisfied my ego, but they meant nothing to my body and soul. That’s why I felt like I was manifesting a cancerous tumor. Though this was the first time my body had reacted so intensely, in my heart I knew I was in a dead-end situation for a few years. Even so, more »
