How To Set Up And Use The Gmail Interface For Your Official Domain Email Without Google Apps

I was one of those super “early adopters” of Google Apps back when Google Apps was completely free. That’s right, Google’s amazing “Google for Work” service for businesses was once completely free! Sometimes this early-adopterness in me is a major distraction and pain, and sometimes it’s a huge benefit and gain. In this case, it was a major gain! I registered my domain and sat up some services, chiefly being an official email of “contact @”, somewhere around 2008. A few …

Innovative leaders can often be disruptive, for sure, and thus kinda scary for some. If you are that leader, gifted in discovery, or you’ve tried working with that type of leadership, you’ve felt this no doubt.

I recently ran across this infographic on the DNA of entrepreneur type leaders (which says it is by the Wall Street Journal), and I found it not only interesting but very encouraging actually. Why did I find it encouraging? Well the most encouraging part is over on the right side of the graphic where it talks about the “Leaders By Type”.

How To Make A Super Simple Weekly Time Budget And Get Out Of Time Debt!

It’s no secret that I’m into maximizing my time here on earth.

I believe time management and productivity is not only a major struggle, but also that most of us choose to be busy and don’t have a good account of where I time actually goes!

Also related, just my beliefs, it’s even a spiritual issue and yet I struggle with this as much as the next person!

If you’re like me and you’ve been known to give away more time than you have to give, and you can tend to live your life in “time-debt”, then you might really benefit from doing this super simple exercise.

Getting out of time debt is easier, and more important, than you think!

I originally developed this for myself while in full time ministry, but I’ve also used it with different guys I mentor to help them get a realistic grasp of their time constraints and set priorities wisely.

While this is one of the most simple methods you can use, it may still shock you how effective it can be.

facebook lists explain restricted acquaintances differences difference different riley adam voth question explanation

The Difference Between Facebook Restricted and Acquaintances Friends Lists

*Update: This has become my most trafficked post from Google search. However, I never wrote it to be a hit. In fact, I wrote it in about five minutes as an aside to my vlog post: “How To Use Facebook Friends Lists To Their Maximum Potential”. So while I’m glad you’re stopping by, you need to know that I was primarily writing for people and leaders in ministry of the Christian faith at the time. While I’ve pivoted much of my website purpose and content since then, I still believe what I said here and still use these lists to guard my heart and mind from unnecessary crap. So if you get snarky in the comments, I reserve the right to either delete it or use your silliness as an example for others to learn from. Your call. :)

So you’re wondering what the differences are in Restricted and Acquaintances lists? I was too once!

They both have the ability to group people and limit their exposure to your posts and vice versa, right? Well, that’s good, but then why two!? How do you know which list to put people in!? Does it matter?

It does. Let me explain…

An Intelligent and Helpful Conversation on Hell [Video]

Sometimes I write it myself; sometimes I relay what someone else has done well. This is the latter. This is definitely one of the best talks and series of videos on Hell that I’ve ever come across. Pastor Darrin from The Journey Church in St. Louis talks with Dr. Robert Peterson, Professor of Systematic Theology at Covenant Seminary, and asks him many common and helpful questions in regards to Hell. Peterson is an extensive writer and an expert in exegetical …

The New Rules For Love Sex and Dating [Video] [Resource]

In keeping with the subject matter of the last post, which spiked my traffic rather significantly (telling me there’s interest in that matter), I thought I’d post one of my all time favorite resources on this matter. This was a sermon series done at North Point Church by Andy Stanley on relationships, dating, sex, marriage and such. This is some top notch content, and to be honest, I’ve used much of what is in this series of messages when I …

I serve as the Director and Editor-In-Chief of The Majesty’s Men, a multi-faceted ministry and brand I founded in 2013 focused on facilitating friendship and mentoring between Christian. TMM is made up of an online community and blog, a network of exemplary men and their sites, a brand and shop, resources, and, most importantly, a growing network of localized face-to-face communities.

I build the site, manage our accounts and volunteers, lead the editing, and lead in strategy and marketing for TMM. It has been a wonderful and super challenging learning experience over the years and I have many more plans for the future!

The best way to get to know TMM is to hop over to the site and check it out.
