It’s called the mystery of Faith for a reason. None of it can be proven, except the part where it works for people who believe in it.

So yeah, totally mystery.




On April Fool’s Day 2009, jeff noel began writing five daily, differently-themed blogs (on five different sites). It was to be a 100-day self-imposed “writer’s bootcamp”, in preparation for writing his first book. He hasn’t missed a single day since.

Entrepreneurial Faith

First look out my hotel room at 4:30am yesterday.

Faith. What does it look like, especially as an entrepreneur?

How about starting a business (while you already have a full-time career at Disney), and (faithfully) investing $1,000/month for 75 consecutive months before you make your first dime.

Yesterday was only the fourth speech in my new, solo speaking career. There are three more contracted days in 2015, for a total of seven speaking engagements.

Every speaking engagement has been a referral, a recommendation, or a former Disney client. Nothing has come from social media.

Quote about farmers
Most of Allentown was once utilized by Farmers.


Packing light is a metaphor for traveling through life. A heavy load is harder to carry.

In a few hours we’ll be in Allentown.  Four days to visit and witness Cheryl’s second cousin, Joshua, receive his Eagle Scout award.

Packing light.

Expecting the visit to be glorious.

Faith is more elusive than hope

Had hoped for the final Sanibel sunset to be spectacular last night.

Stormy weather is common during Florida Summer afternoons. Sometimes this extends into the evening. Last night was one of those nights. But just to be sure, i walked down to the beach to double check. The first photo convinced me there would be no decent sunset. The second proved me wrong.


Sanibel sunset
Last night at 7:30pm.

Faith and hope are pretty cool.

Hope is easier to have.

Faith is the tough one.

We can control our hope, but faith is tested by the things we can’t control.

Glorious news…

Finally received notification yesterday that our first choice (of three) for High School is confirmed.

The One Thing Every CEO Should Exploit

Bronze statues are nice and everything, but really, they shouldn’t be a goal.

Without indomitable will and unerring faith, every CEO jeapordizes the very nature of their title. Every CEO should exploit their faith and let it be the catalyst for personal greatness. Not greatness as in a bronze statue great. Greatness as in the best you you could possibly imagine.

Insight: There are some things in life that are non-negotiable. You must make your own decisions as to what they are.
