Alright world. So I’m back.
It’s been a long time since I’ve posted on this blog and I can’t help but remember what one of my most influential college professors told my senior paper class. “Publish or Perish.” As difficult as it is to stay committed to publishing content daily and weekly, I believe it is truly worth it (although I have not kept this advice as I should. We all live and learn). There is something to getting your thoughts on paper or in more modern terms, on a computer screen. It causes you to think, it adds value to others, and it places you in the position to be an influencer. I’m sure there are many more benefits to this, one obvious one is networking, but I think you get my drift. If you’re publishing, your moving forward, and an object in motion creates motion.
Life has been crazy. Since I posted last I was hired at Quicken Loans to be a mortgage banker, I’ve had my first child, Desirae, with my wife Heather, and we are on the cusp of buying our first home home.
There is so much to share. This week, after much discussion with Heather, we’ve been praying about what God would have for us next. What is our purpose? What does the Lord want us to focus on?
As I begin to post once again, I’m anticipating having more clarity on where this blog is going so I can provide more value to everyone. I am beginning to gain more clarity as I live in Detroit and pray for God’s direction. Honestly, I think my lack of blogging is a direct result of my intense focus on honing my craft of salesmanship at Quicken Loans as God has led me to do. I’m getting much better at my salesmanship, so I’m beginning to have more time to think of other things. Lately I have felt so relaxed on my job because my new process (I’ll tell you about it more later) that I’ve been able to think about what else God wants me to do in Detroit but I’ve found that I don’t actually know what he wants me to do. This has led me to conversations with Heather about our purpose here and it has been beautiful! There is so much more to come on all of this, but as for now, my heart is full of peace and anticipation for what God has next. I’m excited for my future with Heather and Desirae, and I’m excited for all that God has for me in business and ministry.
So for now, I’m signing off. Have a great night! It’s good to be back.
