    There are a lot of people who are successful in this world. They’ve accomplished their goals in the public eye. But being successful isn’t just about what you make happen for yourself, it’s about what you make happen for others. It’s when you realize, “God has blessed me not to just sit on my throne and let everybody see my accomplishments; God has blessed me to be a blessing to others. God has helped me to win so I can help somebody else win.” In other words, it’s when you realize, “God helped me overcome this addiction, now I’m going to go find somebody and help them overcome.” Or, “God has blessed me with a happy family. I’m going to go find a family that’s struggling and help them get back on track.” That’s what being successful is really all about.

    Today, look for ways to help others succeed. Reach back and give freely of the talents and abilities you’ve been given. As you do, you’ll rise up higher and live in the fullness of the blessing God has prepared for you!

    Father God, thank You for giving me so much. Thank You for blessing me with talents and abilities and the desire to bless others. Show me ways to reach out and help others move forward and help them be successful so we can all rise higher together. In Jesus’ Name. Amen.

    Funny you should bring this up. We are starting a Company that the only recruiting is for inner city kids who want out. We will train them, provide transportation to both job sites and nightly classes, teach them how to act and talk around customers, get them clothing and or uniforms and boots.

    A good life they will have as this industry we are experimenting with is exploding.

    But they have to stay drug free and clean up their driving record.

    My nephew has a friend that graduated last year from Butler and was on the team that went to the national championship. He is going to be our recruiter.

    Wish us luck.

    Good luck seadog:

    Is it like a placement service for underprivaleged kids you are starting.

    Have one here in Atlanta and it is doing great things, employers are willing to work with them if they hold up their end if the bargain.

    Good luck.!!!

    Karl... I really love and appreciate that you are doing this. This is such a great way to offer a hand up to those who are not as fortunate as us.

    I really commend you for what you are doing and wish you nothing but success in this venture.

    NO its not a placement service. My office is right outside an intercity environment and we have never had a minority fill out an application with us.

    Every large project here requires a minimum of minority contractor participation.

    Its such a joke mostly people use guy (rich, retired ball player) and use the guy as a broker. It is really sad, its just moving paper around.

    Other companies put an add in the paper soliciting minority participation for four days then they can go back to the owner (usually the state or federal Government) and claim to have done the due diligence.

    We want to change that. This community has been real good to us and we want to play it forward.

    None of the minority contractors "here" are large enough to flip for the construction bonds nor can they afford the training and/or safety programs that we have in place that are required for these large projects.

    We want to fix this.

    Great program Seadog. That's a real win/win. It's sure to have some rough going at first but stay determined and you will succeed with this. I admire your taking thisapproach because it is going to mean a lot to many people in the end.

    At the end of the day you cant help anybody that refuses to help themselves but we can create a path for those that do.

    And the first takers for your opportunity will become role models. Role models make a world of difference in a kids life. But they need to be from the neighborhood not just on tv.

    That's great, Seadog. Really a wonderful thing you guys are doing. I encourage folks to listen to Joel's sermon #496 on this subject:

    It was the subject of last week's TV broadcast.

    I am proud to know you and call you friend, Big Boy.

    What I would love to do, is buy a small apartment building so that I could get these people out of that environment immediately.

    Unfortunately (financially wise) that is way out of the equation.

    The best we can do is give them a locker for their tools and uniforms so they can wear their street cloth and keep their street cred until they can get out of there.
