And The New Book Is …

Yesterday, I told you that my team has decided on the next resource that we will be releasing.  It will be released in August 2009!

So without further delay, the new book will be focused on teaching high school students:

12 Things I Wish I Had Learned About Money Before I Hit The Real World

It is our passion to help others accomplish far more than they ever thought possible with their personal finances.  In I Was Broke. Now I'm Not. (and its related Group Study), I told my story of walking out of financial disarray, and I teach the tools we used to become debt-free.  It is mostly focused on providing a cure for an existing negative financial situation.

In this new resource, we are focusing on prevention of negative financial situations.  I know that I went through twenty years of formal education (13 years of K-12, 4 years of undergrad, 3 years of grad) and I had exactly zero classes on personal finances.  It is my hope that we can provide a resource that can be utilized in schools and in churches to teach high school students how to manage their financial resources well.

We need YOU!  We want to hear YOUR stories.  Share with us the things that you wish you had learned about money before you hit the real world.  Join the conversation and share YOUR stories on the "I Was Broke. Now I'm Not." Facebook Group HERE.

New Book On Its Way!

I am PUMPED to announce that a new book is on its way!  I have been praying with my team about what is the next resource we should produce, and the decision has been made.

So … what is the new book about?  I will tell you tomorrow, AND (shhhhh … it's a secret) I want your help in writing it!

That is right.  YOU can have a part in writing it.

The Sticks Conference: May 12-13

I am PUMPED to be speaking during a breakout session of The Sticks Conference May 12 and 13 in Canton, Georgia.

Here are the reasons I am FIRED UP about (and why you should attend) The Sticks Conference:

  • Gary Lamb, Perry Noble, Tony Morgan, Greg Oraham, Charles Hill, and Ed Stetzer are speaking during the main sessions.  I can guarantee that these guys will be focused on providing PRACTICAL teaching.
  • It is being hosted by Revolution Church.  I have been to this church twice, and I read Gary Lamb's blog every day.  Why?  Because they are impacting their community in huge ways, and incredible life change is happening.  I LOVE life-changing work!
  • The Revolution Band is leading worship.  I said it HERE, I will say it again:  Their band is INCREDIBLE!  The quality of their band and sound in a pack-in, pack-out setting is the best I have ever heard.
  • It is focused on churches out in the sticks.  Truth is that most churches are out in the sticks and all of them operate on limited budgets.  This conference is focused on equipping these ministries to maximize their impact on their communities.
