The final daily blog from our recent trip to Haiti. Join us next Wednesday at 5:00 for dinner and 6:00 for the Haiti trip report.
This was the last day on the work sites!
This morning we again split into two teams. One team went to build another foundation. Since I had worked on a foundation day one I elected to place myself on the crew to collect rubble and river sand (for mixing concrete) in the dump truck.
Weaving a greater mission into your financial goals can help get your team, customers and community involved to grow your bottom line.
The world needs more creative thinkers committed to "As you are going..." theology and praxis.
Do you need a "higher purpose" to round out your alignment efforts?
Here is a great perspective. Make "mission" a part of your mission. In other words think about the charities (called non-profits in the USA). I've found two things that get employees to "up their game" more than any other "lever" and engage at higher levels:
1. Emotional connections with Customers
2. Emotional connections to Community or Charity giving.
If people have the opportunity to go beyond the job and beyond the "contract" and deliver a better experience...or a better life... to someone they can see personally, then you will see excitement and passion blossom.
So, why don't we include both as major drivers to our business? Not just afterthoughts when a customer complains, or during holidays when giving to others (or tax season) is more on our mind.
This article really gives some great advice for how to include this into your business. Plus I will let you into a secret -- if you want to have an edge in recruiting under 30's then you will have an edge if you do this now!
Go on do good... people will follow!
Today our entire construction crew went to the house where we helped prepare the foundation the day before.

I have said it in my Sunday School class (both of them) as well as on Wednesday evening, and I know I have mentioned it to many of you in one on one conversations, but it bares repeating. We are po...
Forget the name of the church or who the author is, this article should be written by any pastor or ministry leader who cares about his or her community. Thanks, Ernie!
