Take Me Out to the BallPark, Take Me Out to The Game

Buy me some peanuts and cracker jacks…

Yes, baseball is the ole’ American sport tradition. And just when you thought there was nothing really left to innovate in the sport, along comes the fascinating entrepreneurial community to deliver ingenuity.

When kids are learning the game, one of the best ways to practice continuously is to have automatic pitching equipment, pitching machines, and batting cages. Kids fortunate enough to have the land and the money to set this equipment up, can get a tremendous leg up on the competition at the local levels.

The pitching machinePhantom Pitching Machine has grown up over the years. The older machines that are still sold today can be quite dangerous because the machinery and mechanics are all exposed. Imagine a piece of clothing or an arm or hand getting caught in the fast spinning wheels that make the machine work.

Phantom Pitching Machine has come up with an incredibly innovative solution that is saving lives and preventing injuries. The pitching machines being manufactured by Phantom safer than a traditional machine because they’ve enclosed the entire wheel and machinery mechanism. There is no place for you to really get limbs or clothing stuck in the machine while it is encased.

How to Quit Your Job and Start an Internet Business

According to young millenials, gen Xers, and Yers that are working full time online, the money is in the hands of the internet generations, the people building businesses online.

And their case is good.

Follow blog like Paid to Exist, Smart Passive Income, The Foundation, and Social Triggers and you’ll come face to face with the reality of what’s happening with entrepreneurship today.

Once you have an opportunity to build a blog, niche site, or popular app, you can kick back, quit your job and start collecting passive income. Sound like fun?

Well, in all reality its more difficult then that. Quitting your job is not a great idea until you’ve got enough income coming in on the side via your internet empire to cover your basic expenses and bills.

It takes time to build an audience. You have to be relevant, interesting, and stand out amongst the noise and the competition in your market online which is not the easiest thing to do.

Using WordPress to Build Your Tribe

WordPress stretches way beyond a simple CMS (content management system). Its the most popular CMS for a reason, and is tremendously powerful. WordPress in and of itself is a community, a movement and an incredible tool that is being used to bring people together.

Seth Godin discusses the idea of attracting and building your Tribe. A tribe is a group of people with common values, interests, hopes, desires and dreams. People who feel connected in some way, usually through a platform that is possible to build with WordPress.

So where to begin to begin building your tribe and learning how to install and use the WordPress platform? A great place to start would be to check out some wordpress tutorials. WP Academy offers some great ones for a reasonable gift donation at http://www.wpacademy.com

Select a host that has a built in cpanel that will enable you to install wordpress on your hosting account easily. Once you are signed up for the host, your domain is pointed to the correct name servers for the host, and then WordPress is installed, you are ready to access your dashboard and begin setting up your platform.

The best way to build an audience and tribe is with incredibly useful and valuable content that you can post on the blogroll (posts in WordPress). Deliver unique articles full of value consistently over time that are organized according to a single niche or topic that you are building a tribe around. In your articles, invite your readers to participate through conversation in the comments, and invite them to submit articles as guest writers on your platform. Over time, people looking for content that your articles consist of, will find your blog through search engines or social media space where your tribe is sharing your articles.

Entrepreneurial Company to Watch in 2014

There is a lot to get excited about for entrepreneurial activity happening leading up to 2014.

One of the companies really worth keeping an eye on right now is TRIBE.LY – a business incubator focused on helping people move from IDEA to LAUNCH through a process of Discovery, Dreaming, Designing and Launching.

In 2014, they are launching version 1.0 of their first product that is currently in beta testing now with a group of 15 people. The beta product was called “The Artist’s Flight Formula” and the new v1.0 has been shortened with a new name called, “The Flight Formula”.

The Flight Formula is a 6-month mastermind business incubation experience that creator, Jason Spencer, describes as a safe space where spirituality meets marketing and business. Spencer believes that when we can be fully awakened to our purpose, and step into the strengths and gifts that we have to offer the world, that we can authentically build a business that will produce and income for us to do what we love.

Who wouldn’t want to live the rest of their lives doing what they love… doing the things that make them come alive?… serving unmet needs in the world with the gifts that we already have within us.

This is a true awakening experience and an environment of community and collaboration with tight knit, close, and vulnerable TRIBES that are formed at the beginning of the session together.

There is power in small groups holding each other in support, encouragement and accountability. The Flight Formula is challenging traditional education models to bring experiential, self-organized learning into action through this product.

An Innovative Way to Do Church

RK Castillo is pastor of a new Church In Waikiki called New Life City.  He had an idea one day when thinking about the Proverbs 31 wife.  If the church really is the bride of Christ, then everything it says in Proverbs 31 about the virtuous woman the church should be doing.
For too long the church has just been a building that people go to on Sunday morning and not a force for community transformation.  This will change if the church takes up the Proverbs 31 initiative.
Lets look at a couple principles of a Proverbs 31 church.
“She considers a field and buys it; out of her earnings she plants a vineyard.”
The Virtuous Woman had an eye and an ear open for business opportunities.  So one day she hears about a field that is for sale and after careful consideration she buys it.  Then here’s the interesting thing, she actually had a savings account where put aside some of her earnings to specifically invest in business opportunities.
What would happen if instead of churches depending on donations from people they built businesses that continued to provide money for ministries?  A Proverbs 31 Church does this.  A portion of the church income is set aside to specifically be used to invest in business opportunities that bless and serve the community they’re in.
“She opens her arms to the poor and extends her hands to the needy.”
The Virtuous Woman was about building business and making sure her businesses were profitable but she was also very much about the poor.  It says she opens her arms to the poor which tells me there is an intimate connection between her and the poor.  She is close enough to them to give them a hug!
A Proverbs 31 Church has an extreme obsession with caring for the poor and the needy.
Pastor RK has taken this to heart and takes no salary from the donations given to the church.  100% of the money given to the Church in Waikiki goes to serving the poor and giving a hand to the needy.
There are many more principles in Proverbs 31 that we can implement as a church to bring community transformation.  Go and check it out yourself and see what you think.

Dealing with the Planet’s Junk Problem in an Innovative Way

junk removalPlanet Earth.

We’ve got a junk problem.

In case you didn’t already know, we are killing our planet with our junk. Piles of piles of waste, trash, junk, and rubbish are just accumulating by leaps and bounds. The landfills are growing out of control, and there is only one thing that can stop it.

Us.

We’ve got to start thinking creatively.

We’ve got to start approaching this problem with a fresh perspective and mind.

Thankfully, there are innovaters in this space beginning to make a difference.

For example there is a junk removal company called One Call Clean Out that is tackling this incredibly huge problem in a new way. Instead of hauling junk off to the closest landfill, this company thinks creatively about ways to recycle, upcycle, refurbish, donate and resell. Those 5 words combined offer options to dealing with the problem at hand. By looking at every piece of junk they pickup and running it through the filter of recycle, upcycle, refurbish, donate, and resell, they can make good choices about what to do with the items before a landfill or trash yard is even an option. The % of items hauled off to waste yards is very minimal. This also enables them to keep their costs low.

Think if every trash, or junk removal company operated like this. Think what the impact on our planet would be if every household thought like this?

We need to think of ways like this to be less wasteful and more creative with our re-use of the things we buy.

Kudos to http://www.onecallcleanout.com for getting this innovation right for our precious and fragile planet. For junk REMOVAL Philadelphia be sure to give them a call.
