Today, I’m live-blogging the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta. The next speaker I’ll be live-blogging about is Christy Wright.
Christy is an experienced business coach who has trained business leaders nationwide. She frequently speaks at Dave Ramsey’s EntreLeadership Master Series and EntreLeadership Performance Series.
Christy starts off her Catalyst talk about sharing a story about the time she went diving with the sharks. As the time grew closer to getting in the water with the sharks, her anxiety and fear levels began to rise.
Could she do it? Would she do it? Will she die?
All these thoughts went through her mind. Then she got in the water…
And the experience was the most awesome, inspiring, awe-inducing thing she’d done. Now, she’d swim with the sharks again and again.

Today, I’m live-blogging the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta. The next speaker I’ll be live-blogging about is Bob Goff.

Today, I’m live-blogging the Catalyst Conference in Atlanta. The next speaker I’ll be live-blogging about is Jeremy Courtney.
Jeremy is the founder and CEO of Preemptive Love Coalition, a “first-in, last to leave” community of peacemakers who provide front-line relief and long-term development in Iraq, Syria, and other areas of polarizing conflict.
What is Preemptive Love?
We ended up moving into Iraq during the Iraq War. The events of September 11th, 2001 changed my life.
We made a slight posture change. Rather than seek revenge, we turned towards the enemy.
You describe the problem that Preemptive Love is trying to address. What is different about the way you’re attacking the problem?
People frame the issue as “Those people over there. They’re the enemy.” But we’re afraid of all this stuff.
It’s important to recognize where our rhetoric is coming from. Read more...

The first guest is Andy Stanley. Andy is the senior pastor of North Point Church in Atlanta. He’s also the author of Ask It and Deep & Wide.
A single act of courage often becomes the single action that changes history. When Rosa Parks refused to give up her bus seat. Her act of courage changed the course of the United States.
Martin Luther, breaking with the Catholic Church. An extraordinary act of courage.
Or Bill Hybels telling his father that he wasn’t going to continue in the family business. He was going to work with teenagers and build a different kind of church.
No one knows what is on the other side of a single act of courage. Read more...
