I have moved my blog to Escapade78.com. Don't get me wrong, I like adventures of a Texan, but Escapade has such a better meaning. I hope you will subscribe to my new blog and keep following along with me. I plan on canceling my Typepad account in about a month. Cheers!
Early today, I got an email for Lisa Jones from the Vitamin, a web resource by Carson Systems, about helping to write for them. Of course this is after I asked to be a writer and try to contribute a few thoughts to the web discussions. She asked what area I was interested in and could contribute to. My response...the business of the web.
If you haven't learned by now, I love talking about business ideas, models, and plans. Critiquing, visualizing how I would have done similar or different things as others in the market. Regardless as to whether I will get to write for the Vitamin, I will have plenty of opportunity to speak about business.
Where? At the Simple Business Workshops. So far, interest has been stirring, and signups have begun. In fact, in just one month and 2 days, we will be down in San Diego hosting the first Simple Business Workshop at our alma mater, Point Loma Nazarene University. I am really getting excited about presenting, sharing and meeting new business owners and creative professionals. That is my bread and butter.
So, maybe I will get a chance to write about business on the Vitamin, and maybe not. But, at least I will be writing on my blog about my experiences at the workshops.
I have begun to find more and more folks who are becoming curious about faith and business coexisting. Here in Prague, you are believed to have surrendered all intelligence if you go to church, giving up logic in place of faith. I was really glad when I came across this posting on one of my business acquaintance's blogs. Alex Muse and I have been chatting about business for months now. Oddly enough, we both have done very similar things to this point. Enlisted in the USMC, went to The University of Texas at Austin, own our own businesses (Alex, me) and even graduated from James E. Taylor HS in Katy, TX. Then, after reading his blog posting, am glad to say that we are brothers in Christ, too.
