I recently had the pleasure to interview Tom Harper. Tom is the CEO of Networld Media Group and serves as a deacon at Southeast Christian Church. He’s also the publisher of BiblicalLeadership.com and wrote Leading From The Lions’ Den: Leadership Lessons From Every Book Of The Bible.
Tom recently released Through Colored Glasses: How Great Leaders Reveal Reality. Through Colored Glasses addresses a leadership challenge identified in Proverbs 16:2: All a person’s ways seem pure to them, but motivates are weighed by the Lord. The book is a fable about Leo Perkins, a man who desires to save his company but deep down he’s more worried about bruising his ego.
I was able to ask Tom about Through Colored Glasses, Biblical truth, and how you can become a better leader. Today, I get to share Tom’s thoughts with you and they’re good! Read more...

Wisdom For Success In Business And Life – An Interview With Marc Demetriou
- Lessons from My Grandfather shares insights into business and life from your grandfather Charlie Pistis. Why did you choose your grandfather as the inspiration for the book?
My grandfather was my best friend and mentor. He was an amazing man who left home at 16 by himself, determined to make something of himself and be someone in this world. He advanced in life purely because of who he was: hardworking, honest, passionate, likable and a friend to all! Read more...
Have you ever had one of those “aha” moments in your life where clarity was immediate?
I have had many moments like this over the last three decades as an entrepreneur, teacher, and parent. I wanted to share a personal experience with you that deeply influenced the content of my recently released book, It All Matters.
I was once asked to speak at a high school in Battle Creek Michigan by a Good friend of mine, Lorin Granger. Walking into the auditorium, I saw the faces of over 1,000 young students from a multitude of different cultural backgrounds. I had decided to craft a presentation around one simple but profound message:
Individually, you matter too much to far too many people to not matter enough to yourself to live your life to your greatest capacity. Read more...
Jonathan Malm is the author of Created For More. The book is a 30 day devotional for anyone who creates or longs to create something.
Having read through the devotional, I thought it would be great to bring Jonathan to the blog and ask him a few questions relating to his new devotional.
In this interview, you will learn:

How do you find the dreamers and doers and people who see the greatness in you?
Why you should get into conversations with people on airplanes
How do you draw out the dreams and passions of those you meet?
Why is it important for leaders to develop a devotional habit?
The power in filling your cup and powering yourself out to others
Is creativity just for artists? Read more...
One aspect of good leadership is to learn from and appreciate those leaders who have gone before us. Whatever your particular views are today, they need to be molded and tempered by the truths of people who have previously walked and fought. As American philosopher George Santayana stated: “Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it.”
In this country, we have trivialized Memorial Day to another three day weekend. It’s the first day of summer. It’s a big sales day at the mall. It’s time to bring out the old barbecue grill.
