I really like Zig Ziglar and I love the United States military so I was stoked to see that Zig’s son Tom has opened the Ziglar Vault of all the best audio and video for free to any active duty member of the United States Armed Forces. Makes me want to join the military. OK, I know that God hasn’t created me for that but do take advantage of it and pass it on to any of your friends that are in the military.
If you are a young leader and would like to keep in mind that that is the role God has for you I am willing to give 10 people @leadernexus.com email accounts. It is essentially a Gmail account with the leadercast domain so you get all the benefits of Gmail along with a really cool name. If you would like one just shoot me a quick email at firstname.lastname@example.org with your real name, and desired name and I’ll set that up for you
This past week I finally decided to get serious about getting back into shape. I think my pride had kept me from saying I am going to work out more or eat anything different than normal. I have changed some of my eating habits and have been eating better but I haven’t consistantly excercised or eaten well. So I decided that I would make some changes and try to lose 19 lbs between Nov3rd and Jan 1st. It has been cool to see the difference in my own dedication just by making a decision and committing to a goal. At the same time I was thinking about how I have wanted this to be a site that would help other Christian grow in their leadership ability and I haven’t really done much with it over the years. There was a time when I would regularly get emails about the podcasts helping someone in someway or another but that has trailed off as well since I quit producing new ones. So starting this week I will endeavor to create video casts that will help Christians become better leaders. If there is anyway that I can help you please let me know.
Jim Turnage is one of my good friends and also an expert on developing people. I will interviewing Jim today about how young leaders can develop those around them. Check back in two days for the final audio.
