"You cannot grow others unless you grow yourself.  I think a lot of times we think, well, I've gotta get these people to follow me and that leads to a lot of external factors or a lot of tactics of trying to fix somebody or fix the situation or fix the team. But the reality is if we spent 80% of our time or more on ourselves and getting our inside right, then we give people around us the freedom to do the same." - Richard Rierson

Stand Out And Live A Full Life


"It's part of your unique gift as a human being that you see things differently than other people and it's almost an obligation, one could argue, if you are going to live your life fully you need to step up and share your talents and share your vision!" - Dorie Clark

Would you like to make a bigger impact on the world? My friend Dorie Clark - who’s a professor at Duke University’s Fuqua School of Business, a contributor to Forbes and the Harvard Business Review, and a former presidential campaign spokeswoman – interviewed more than 50 top thought leaders to understand how they developed their breakthrough ideas and built a following around them.

In her new book Stand Out, she’s distilled their wisdom down and created a framework so that regular men and women can follow those same principles to gain more career security, become respected in their company and in their field, and have a greater impact on the world. It's worth it for the great stories alone! If you have an idea or a business you’d like to see gain traction – or you know you’d like to develop one, but aren’t quite sure yet what it is – this book is for you. You can order it here, and also download her free 42-page Stand Out self-assessment workbook. I hope you’ll enjoy Dorie’s work as much as I do!

What You Will Learn

  • How to make an impact right where you are! (Hint - you don't need to be rich & famous!!)
  • How to turbo charge your life no matter where you are!
  • That you don't need to be an expert to create an idea that creates huge impact
  • How to inspire others to listen and take action
  • How to identify that ONE idea that will set you apart
  • How to develop a following around your idea!

Why I Do What I Do

I grew up in a very small town in North Carolina – pre-Internet era – and felt incredibly frustrated with the lack of opportunities and like-minded people. I left home early to head to college, so I could get a jumpstart on doing the things I cared about, like getting a masters degree in theology and becoming a political reporter, presidential campaign spokesperson, nonprofit executive director, and documentary filmmaker.

In 2006, I launched my marketing strategy consulting business, and eventually started writing, speaking professionally, and teaching for business schools. I’m passionate about helping others take control of their professional lives and make an impact on the world, and have written two books – Reinventing You and the Stand Out – to help make that a reality.

Bio


Stephen K. De Silva, the founder of Prosperous Soul ministries, has committed his life to breaking the spirits of poverty and mammon and releasing people into their God-given destiny. Stephen is an exciting and engaging storyteller. An authentic writer and speaker, he teaches not from grandiose ideas or theories but from his own real life experiences. Through the different ministries and structures he has developed, he is changing the world from message he lives out everyday. Stephen is the Chief Financial Officer of Bethel Church in Redding, California. As a Certified Public Accountant since 1989, Stephen has worked in both public and private practice, with specialties in small business consulting, personal finances, ministerial income taxation and non-profit organization administration. Stephen’s professional experience includes quality peer review services, independent auditing and income tax preparation for individuals and corporations. In 1996, he left public accounting to work for Bethel Church of Redding and open a private boutique accounting practice. Stephen sold his income tax practice in 2008 to dedicate all his energies to the opportunities and challenges raised by the exponential growth experienced by Bethel Church under Bill Johnson, and Kris Vallotton. In 1997, Stephen began teaching a small group of friends on the principles of supernatural stewardship. This ministry has grown into what is now known as Prosperous Soul, based on the Bible verse in 3 John 1:2. His unique voice on stewardship and money is a regular part of Bethel Church’s adult education, and in seminar form in locations around the globe. “My heart is to be a gift. I give away whatever God has shown me for the sake of Christ and the Church. I want to see Christians return to relevance in the eyes of the world, by becoming stewards of God’s secrets (2Cor 4:1), in our personal finances and the marketplace”. Stephen enjoys life with his wife, Dawna De Silva, founder and co-leader of the international healing and deliverance ministry called Bethel Sozo. Stephen and Dawna have two sons: Timothy (17) and Cory (21). Cory is a rising singer/songwriter, having just released his debut album, Someday When I’m Young.

3 Keys To Find Your Life Mission

The 210 Project is designed to help you answer the two most pressing questions to help you find your place in God’s story.

Why am I here?

What does God really want me to do with my life?

"When you stand up there and tell people that God is smart enough and wise enough to wire you to naturally pursue His desires, when you reach a certain level of maturity, it's like waves of inner healing go across the room." - John Garfield

In this interview with John Garfield you’ll learn that marketplace ministry is the passion that starts when God connects your job, business, ministry, and life purpose into one package. Entrepreneurs (like you) in your workplace or your home business bring a creative health to cash flow, co-workers and customers.

Marketplace ministry begins with your dream or hobby; a desire that God put in your heart – an entrepreneurial spirit that replaces that paycheck-to-paycheck mentality with a new optimism, financial health, and a new ability to make others successful.  this is a riveting story of freedom from a poverty mentality.  John shares how to connect with the favor God already has on your life.

John shares that we’re called to literally bless the nations. Releasing Kings for Ministry in the Marketplace is the title of John's book – it’s also learning to move into your ministry and your dreams. You’ll have a scriptural basis for the expansion of the Kingdom of God into all areas of society.

Releasing Kings paints a picture of Kings who are naturally competitive, creative, and decisive, who are being used to fulfill the Great Commission. God is beginning another reformation by using an entrepreneurial people in marketplace ministry to fill the whole Earth with His Glory and you're invited!  

"People are no longer content to just sit in church and fulfill the vision of that local church. The positive way to look at it is people are finding the kingdom and and they're going out into the culture and they're changing the world." - John Garfield

What You'll Learn

  • The marketplace is an exciting new frontier for ministry and business
  • You will understand how enterprising business leaders are impacting generations by passing their financial and spiritual heritages on to others
  • How to connect with the desires of your heart in a practical way
  • Discover new opportunities that are opening for mentoring others and sharing the secrets and benefits of Christ centered business.
  • Find PASSION for your CAREER (and Your life!)
    • You’ll connect your vocation, ministry, and your life purpose for the very first time.
