Highest Education: 4 years in Bible college before dropping out and building a successful internet business.
Year Started Business: 2006 with greeting cards.
Type Of Business: Greeting card business from home.
Ideal Canidate: I have found that the perfect match for my greeting card business is someone who more than likely has a family but doesnt have to. They want to make an extra $1,000-$5,000 per month to pay bills and debt. They want to give more to charity. Bascially, a good person who likes to help people feel good.
Number Of Employees: Just have a few independent contractors who do work for me.
Hours Worked Per Week Now: 1-2 hours per week with greeting cards. It runs itself mostly.
Favorite Business Magazines: Entrepreneur, Inc Magazine...I like the log cabin magazines as well.
Favorite Business Books Or Authors: The Bible, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Robert Cialdini,Getting Everything You Can Out of All You Got by Jay Abraham,Body For Life by Bill Phillips.
Relaxes By: I love going to get massages almost every week. I feel good for 3-4 days afterwards. I also watch a lot of movies as they seem to be the only thing that helps me relax as well. I did just buy a new X-box though (Sherry doesn't like it). :-)
Keeps In Shape By: I run a few times per week. I have lost over 50lbs since I started.
Favorite Part Of The Job: Seeing the impact a greeting card can have on people and realizing that I actually get paid for sending out cards!
Least Favorite Part Of The Job: People who quit right before their wave of success is about to hit.
Companies Admired: Standard Oil (John D. Rockefellers company),Dave Ramseys company for helping people get out of debt.
Favorite Quotes: This is my all time favorite by James Michener:
“The master in the art of living makes little distinction between his work and his play, his labor and his leisure, his mind and his body, his information and his recreation, his love and his religion. He hardly knows which is which.
He simply pursues his vision of excellence at whatever he does, leaving others to decide whether he is working or playing. To him he's always doing both.”
The Person Who Most Influenced His Life: Jesus Christ because he actually died for my sins. My best friend Blu Pannhoff is next.
Special Accomplishments: Wrote a book at the age of 28 which lead to me working with some very influential people.
Heroes: Blu and my father.
