I'll Make You An Offer You Can't Refuse by Michael Franzese

I'll make you and offer you can't refuse by Michael Franzese is a pretty interesting book. The title was the first thing that got my attention and when I saw that the book was written by a former Mob Boss I thought it should be pretty interesting since I never read any book by someone in the mob.

The book consists of eleven chapters in which Michael Franzese talks about eleven different things to consider to build and maintain a successful business. These are lessons that he learnt in his life during the the time he spent with the mob.

He uses the wisdom of Machiavelli and Solomon to describe the wrong and right way of doing things. Even though you might not find anything that will revolutionize your thinking regarding business and life there are certain lessons and ideas to be learnt from the book. There are a lot of interesting stories from his life that he shares to get his point across. The stories kept my attention and at the end of every chapter there was something that you could walk away with.

Even though it might not be a great how-to book on business, it is a pretty easy read in which you learn some insights and get a small peak into the life of a former Mob Boss!

North Point Online!

North Point Community Church has finally made the decision to take their church online!!

This is very exciting!! Even though I have never attend the church in ATL, I have always heard great things about this church and I believe that the decision to take their church online will be a great tool that God will use to bring people to Himelf!

The first service will take place on Aug. 16th at 6PM EST. CHECK IT OUT!

Here is the promotional video for the series that they will be kicking off with called "Losing your religion".

Promo: "Losing Your Religion" from North Point Media on Vimeo.

I believe it is going to be a great series for people who have not yet made a decision to receive and follow Jesus!

So if you have family or friends that you have been praying for, this might be a great opportunity to invite them to church online!! Let me know if you do!

Are you listening?

Here is the ad for the the partnership between BlackBerry and U2. A Mobile Album will be released soon!

"Pity the nation that won't listen to your boys and girls
Cos the sweetest melody is the one we haven't heard" - U2

I think this is very true when it comes to leadership. As leaders it is important that we pay attention to the "boys & girls" that we are leading. When we don't do it we often miss out on some of the best concepts and ideas that are yet to come into the world!
