Ambassador Missions has discovered an amazing organization that is changing the world in a big way. By way of an introduction, we’ve got a trivia question for you:

What is the world’s most expensive luxury version
of a product relative to the cost of the

Tellin’ it like IT is

By |July 22nd, 2011|

Ours is truly the ultimate people business.  As such, players in the IT consulting game are subject to ebullient highs and excruciating lows.  Having been in the game for nearly a quarter of a century now, I’ve had my fair share of both.  Yet, I still get near giddy whenever we put one of our […]

TeleHealth Exchange: Who Ya’ Gonna Call?

By |March 31st, 2011|

This is Part 3 of a 3 part series originally entitled:  Who’s Going To Amazon Healthcare?

As with any “change the world” undertaking, getting started is never easy.  Amazon didn’t become the second most valuable retailer in the world ($81 billion market cap) by initially offering any product to any customer anywhere at any time.  They started […]

Wisconsin Doc Gone Fishin’ But Still Workin’

This is Part 2 of a 3 part series originally entitled:  Who’s Going To Amazon Healthcare?

Like a delighted child on Christmas morning, I recently discovered a special gift within the Biblical account of “The Christmas Story”:

“But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.” (Luke 2:19)

So, what were “all these things” that the mother of Jesus treasured and pondered?  The passage refers to the things that Mary […]

According to Matt Gutwein, CEO of Marion County Health and Hospital Corporation, the traditional “fee for service” healthcare system in our country has fallen and can’t get up.  “Where else can you get a gig that pays you the same regardless of need or effectiveness or even if it’s determined that the service rendered was completely […]

A Million Miles In A Thousand Years by Don Miller

By |August 31st, 2010|

Author Don Miller hit the big-time in 2003 with his best-selling memoir, Blue Like Jazz.  Not sure why I never read it.  BLJ remains wildly popular, especially within contemporary Christian circles, primarily because it challenges virtually every notion of what it means to be a true Christian.  Intrigued by the author as much as the […]

Happy Fearless New Year!

By |January 19th, 2010|

Towards the end of what proved to be the most challenging year of my life, I came upon a book that proved to be a true Godsend.  Fearless by Max Lucado sets forth a compelling case for why the book’s subtitle, “Imagine Your Life Without Fear”, is not only possible, but completely rational given the […]

By |August 20th, 2009|

Once again, the Ambassador Leadership Team attended the Willow Creek Leadership Summit via satellite on August 6 and 7.  Once again, I left convinced that The Summit is the greatest leadership development value on the planet.  “No pain, no gain” was a reoccurring theme this year.  One faculty member particularly stood out as having experienced […]
