There are four words that have more power to enrich your life than you can dare imagine. But, when I tell you what they are, you’ll think that they’re too simple.

What We Can Learn From Kanye West

Kanye West and his audacity are at work yet again. Back in 2009, West made headlines when he stole the microphone from Taylor Swift during her acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards. West’s disrespect was rooted in his belief that the award belonged to Beyoncé instead. At the 2015 Grammys, West pretended to take the stage and snag the “Album of the Year” award away from rocker, Beck. Again, he was defending Beyoncé who was surprisingly upstaged.

Deadlier than Ebola

Of the many problems plaguing our culture, one stands out among the rest. It is far deadlier than Ebola because it pierces deeper than the body, it kills the heart.

The Greg Sidden Story: Humbled With Confidence

The fluorescent lights hum overhead. Their dull buzz increases the vague fog creating a sense of dreaming. Has he been here for two minutes, two hours, or two days? He doesn’t know the reality of the furious work going on around him. The work to save his life. Now on his back, he can make out a number of men standing around him.

My Sort-of American Idol Story

At twenty-two years old, I moved to Florida to work for one of the largest private real estate developers. This company had it all: luxurious events, world-class amenities, and a company culture with the motto, “Work hard, play harder.” As a way to build employee morale, they hosted a spinoff of American Idol, encouraging employees to take a shot at becoming the next big thing. They set up an elaborate stage and flew in Tom Arnold to host the party. And […]
