One of my latest co-creations is coming to life today. I do wish I could enjoy it a little more – 15-hour work days for a week straight leaves the sensory capacitors a little numb – but I’m thrilled regardless.

New Life Media is a marketing firm specializing in public image design, and is the brain child of master designer Jason Clement, business guru Kirk Gilchrist, marketing sensation John Cobb, and myself – master guru of sensational something or otherness.

While the company’s website won’t be public for another week or so, we have employee orientation and training all this week. We’ll be unwrapping new iPads, playing with toys, trying on apparel, talking tech and design, smelling new business cards, and diving into our sales strategies and delivery models.

As with any new for-profit venture, I get fired up about having the ability to employ people (something I’ve learned I can do much better than the government, thank you very much). One of my greatest joys in life is to help provide income earning positions that fit with peoples’ dreams. It’s truly a privilege, and I’ve fallen into it by sovereignty, not on purpose.

Many good things await New Life Media. And many organizations will be better for her existence. Here’s to another Kingdom business birthed for God’s glory. ch:

UPDATE 5:54pm ET – What a fantastic first day for all involved. I’ll be posting pics tomorrow. Lots of laughs, and lots of good content. Very proud of our new staff. Thank you Travis, Kristen, Nina, Rebekah, Candy, Theresa, John, Kirk, Jason, and Jamie for doing our office build out! Peace.

The circles in your logo make my eyes go wonky. I’m guessing that’s on purpose and not because Jason tried to draw three circles free-hand 😀 Excited for you in the new venture!

    We made it just for people like you, hoping their eyes would go wonky so we could giggle at them.

Oh, good 🙂 my eyes have been successfully wonkified. Commence giggling.

So excited for you guys! Actually, I’m kinda jealous and wish I could be up there with you. 🙂

    Thank you, Pearl. I so appreciate you. You’re a true encourager.

So excited for all of you. Jason has been feeling a change in the air for some time now. I know he is on the edge of greatness. Wishing you all the best.
Peace, Love and Granolla,

    Thanks, Tom. Indeed, indeed. Love your guts. (And thanks for rooting him on).
