COOL mini-book... John Wooden's Pyramid of Success.

OK...sooo, since I was a youth pastor when Kyle & Kellie were young up thru to almost junior high for

them, they pretty much grew up IN a youth group/youth ministry. Suffice to say, older teens, (pretty

good role models) influenced our kids, and they were usually just a little bit "cooler" than most other

kids. Kyle went to kindergarten wearing sun glasses & Kellie grew up listening to DC Talk (although

we had our share of Barnie & Elmo too.) Back in Jr. High, Kyle & Kellie got me to start taking them to

TP their friends. Let's just say, over the years, it got a little crazy! At some point, we had to start

shutting it down when it got to us getting nailed like once a month!   Now...Kassidy is in 6th grade.

 

What is the first thing she wants to do when her friends spend the night????  TP their friends, arrgg.

She is in SIXTH GRADE! I dunno, am I making a mistake here? I've decided to put a rule in place,

no more than 1/4 role per house per kid. No blanketing any house!  We'll see....

My new start Up's show "Sue Thomas:F.B.Eye" syndicated on Animal Planet

One of the start ups I've been involved in for the last year has

leading it a TV producer named Dave Alan Johnson. Our goal is

to produce excellent quality family friendly programming (not crap).

 

Now that more people watch programming online then on the

boob-tube, we can skip the main networks who are primarily

focused on garbage anyway.  The audience is there! 

 

So, I've known Dave since 1996, he is a true veteran TV guy.

One of his shows was Sue Thomas: F.B.Eye from 2002-2005.

Needless to say, it has won dozens of awards, has a huge fan

base and is now being syndicated on Animal Planet.  

 

I am handling our technical streaming/web delivery. We have a

temporary site up at  STFbeye.com 

 

You can also see a clip about Dave here.

 

Please tell your friends about this show on Animal Planet!

YES! Run Meg Run!

I met Meg Whitman in 2003 (not dropping names).  I was fortunate that my services company did some work for her company for about 2 years. I didn't know anything about her politics until she started talking up McCain. Back then though, I immediately liked her way of doing business. She returned calls ASAP, sent emails on issues before even needing to be reminded.

 

Man, I hope she runs for  governor, I will definitely be a volunteer & help. She will have lots of critics, even a guy like Jeff Dorsch seems to be on the fence!  http://ad.vu/dvz4

A Bible gift to Penn Jillette

Penn Jillette is best known as the talking half of the comedy

duo Penn and Teller.  He is also known as a pretty harsh atheist.

 

Here he talks about an encounter with a Christian that shows

the importance us loving those that we disagree with & even mock us.

 

This needs to be shown in every church that cares about helping

people find Jesus.

Melissa Ethridge defends Pastor Rick Warren

All this crazy talk about Rick Warren being a gay basher is NUTS.  I love this article. Melissa Ethridge meets Pastor Rick Warren, defends him BEFORE inauguration, and she thinks she is going to hate him. She ends up finding a fan and liking him. Imagine that! Like a pastor?  NO!?!? http://adjix.com/5ye4

"Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you did your best to become the best you are capable of. "  So, over Christmas break I've been able to catch up on reading. I've been reading a mini-book given to me when I was still doing small group ministry at West Valley Church in 2008.  I strongly recommend this book for people who are busy, but want really inspirational reading for business, life, family, etc.   Remember, LEADERS are READERS...   http://adjix.com/6hqx       coachwooden.com

Stars send anti-strike letter to SAG

My son Kyle is in SAG. I also run a start up where we are trying to put content online and monetize it. So, I have funny views. As a producer... I personally don't want to pay $800+ a day (or more) to actors for online content, nor the residuals!  But, I want my KID to be paid for his work when it is streamed!  I personally think the writers got a raw deal. They did not have good negotiation people and gave up the first 17 days of any streaming for free. Hmmm, notice now how networks are only putting up their most popular episodes for...3 weeks, 21 days. So, a writer is going to get paid LESS, only get 3 days of streaming revenue, and has lost a lot of traction on DVD sales.  HOLD ON SAG PEOPLE!  Dont give in.  At least that is my two cents.   http://ad.vu/dvyi   (this is a few weeks old already)
