My Mission Statement

SONY DSCMy mission is to live an extraordinary life as a servant leader humbly using my God given talents to enhance the lives of others.   My mission is underpinned by the 8 passions of my life.


The 8 passions of my life support my mission:

 1. Faith – All praise to God the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing.  Ephesians 4:3

2. Family – My family is the bedrock of all I am and all I will be.  I am committed until my dying day to my family’s stability and growth.

3. Leadership – I aspire to be a servant leader; following the example of Jesus to place the needs of others before my own and help people develop and perform to their maximum potential.

4. Health – I have adopted a lifestyle committed to Eating Smart, Exercising and Playing Hard.

5. Constant Improvement – I am devoted to an ongoing effort of learning, discovery and listening to diverse ideas, concepts and embracing new technologies.  My goal of always having the courage of being able to courageously change or try something new to continuously improve and grow.

6. Financial Security – I am dedicated to living within my means, focused on making financial decisions that result in (1) security for my family and (2) the building of God’s Kingdom through the giving of tithes & offerings.

7. Fun – I am committed to injecting fun into all phases of my life, and resisting the temptation to take myself too seriously.

8. Baseball – I am a devoted fan of the “National Pastime” and my favorite team the Atlanta Braves.

    I am impressed with your mission statement and your 8 passions for living. I do not know how you found me. Internet marketing I am sure, but, I do not mind getting your emails. They “enhance” my life bro and wanted you to know that. May the face of Jesus always shine on you and your family and your business….Blessing to you my man!!

    I, too, am delighted to see such wonderful motivations (passions) for purposeful living. You and my nephews who live in Georgia are on the same page with the Atlanta Braves baseball, but even though my team hasn’t won games too much lately, the Cincinnati Reds, they are my childhood team while growing up in Ohio and the team will always have a soft spot in my heart. God, family, and baseball! It doesn’t get any better than that!

    Marben, it is always a great joy to see men not only in leadership outside the home but leadership inside the home! Your mission statement is very profound and your 8 passions for life is as equally profound. I have not met you personally and I don’t know how you received my email but I do believe that “all things work according to God’s purpose and plan”! There are no incidents but there are divine appointments. I am not sure what it is but I know that it will be revealed to us all that are connected to you by your site. I pray continued blessings to you and your family and I too love baseball!!!!!!
