Archives For help

#CYBERMONDAY ALERT!

 
My wife, Erica, has been an Executive Virtual Assistant for the past 6 years. She’s had the pleasure of working with some really great clients from all over the country. She has handled things like:
 
InfusionSoft, WordPress, Dropbox, Microsoft Suite, Database Management, Kindful, Email Management, Calendar Management, Social Media Calendaring, Reconciling Receipts, Project Management, Task Management, and she has created countless systems and processes to help grow other people’s businesses. On top of all that, she’s always learning and growing so that she can best serve her clients.
 
She regularly gets inquiries, asking if she has any availability to take on a few hours here and there. Here’s the bad news, she doesn’t. She’s all booked up. She currently works with two clients, she also runs our Children’s Ministry at Two Cities Church and she’s a full-time mom of 3 and my wife. So, she’s pretty busy.
 
But… A couple of months ago, we decided to take those inquiries and match them up with some of the best Virtual Assistants we could find, people we actually know and have worked with.
Here’s the problem we’re trying to solve.
 
  • People have dreams.
  • People launch businesses to accomplish those dreams.
  • People get weighed down with the details of running those businesses and they lose sight of their dreams.

That’s where we come in, Dream Support.

 

Our mission is to get your head out of the weeds and back into the clouds, where dreamers thrive, by providing Virtual Assistant services.

 

Now there are plenty of Virtual Assistants out there and I’m sure you could find one that would do just fine for you. But you get something extra with us, you get a Virtual Assistant that has direct access to the working knowledge and expertise of Erica Foster. As I mentioned before, she is a highly sought after and valuable Executive Virtual Assistant. She’s here to help.

 

We have packages right now for as little as 5 hours a week and up to 30 hours a week. AND right now… we’re running a 10% off promotion.

 
If you have any questions, message me and we’ll set up a time to talk through what we can do to help get your head out of the weeds and back into the clouds. Let us support your dreams.

Hey North Fresno!
Are we too busy to stop and help someone in need?
too busy to help

Yesterday my wife was on her way home from visiting her grandma.
It was 10:45AM.
She was down the street and called me.
She said, “Get your shoes on, I need to take you around the corner. A lady just got into a card accident and I have Brynn, so I can’t approach her.”
So I hurried and met her outside. We drove around the corner and a van was sitting up on the curb.
I got out of the car and Erica called 911.
I approached her slowly and asked if she was ok.
She appeared to be ok, but was dazed.
She was concerned about a Dr. appointment she had in an hour.
She wanted someone to take her and I assured her that she needed to stay put with her car until the police came.
As I was standing next to the car, the home owner came outside with the woman’s driver’s license.
He said he had called the police and they said they weren’t coming because the woman wasn’t hurt.
Erica got off the phone and said, they’re on their way.
The man was unsure of how to handle the situation and said that she’d been sitting there for 45 minutes.

45 Minutes People

I love our community, but people… come on.
She was alone, on the side of the road and didn’t know what to do for 45 minutes before we stopped.
The man inside had basically given up on help because the “police weren’t coming.”
Neither of them were equipped to handle this on their own…

Meanwhile… there were 100 or more cars that had driven by.

This reminds me of a little story.

“A man was going down from Jerusalem to Jericho, when he was attacked by robbers. They stripped him of his clothes, beat him and went away, leaving him half dead. A priest happened to be going down the same road, and when he saw the man, he passed by on the other side. So too, a Levite, when he came to the place and saw him, passed by on the other side. But a Samaritan, as he traveled, came where the man was; and when he saw him, he took pity on him. He went to him and bandaged his wounds, pouring on oil and wine. Then he put the man on his own donkey, brought him to an inn and took care of him. The next day he took out two denarii and gave them to the innkeeper. ‘Look after him,’ he said, ‘and when I return, I will reimburse you for any extra expense you may have.’ “Which of these three do you think was a neighbor to the man who fell into the hands of robbers?”
Let’s not assume someone has already helped.
Let’s not assume it’s not our responsibility to help someone.
And let’s not leave our neighbors in wrecked cars on the side of the road because it doesn’t fit into our nicely organized plans or schedule for the day.

18 Months.

October 14, 2010 — Leave a comment

For the last 18 months my dad has been out of work. He owned his own construction company for years called Don Foster Construction. He specialized in building church buildings up and down the west coast. I don’t know the exact amount, but I think he’s built somewhere about 65 church buildings of all denominations (I’m guessing). But when the economy tanked, churches stopped building and remodeling. He closed his business and joined a larger construction firm in the Vancouver, Wa area. After a few months they downsized and he got the axe. He’s applied for hundreds, maybe thousands of jobs in the last 18 months.

In November his unemployment was going to stop. In November, my parents would be able to make their last house payment. And in December…the collectors were gearing up to come knocking. But in God’s grace and in His perfect timing I got a call saying that my dad was hired. He was hired in the industry he knows, helping a construction company grow their business AND it is for the salary that my parents need to be able to pay their bills.

Through the last 18 months I’ve seen him:

  • Ask for prayer
  • Wait on God
  • Actively seeking employment (of ANY kind)
  • Volunteer his time (like crazy) at his church
  • Consistently say, “I know God will take care of it”
  • And more.

So things are looking up for my parents. And my dad will finally get to work.

If you’re struggling. If you’re jobless. If you are running out of time…trust in Jesus. He will pull you through. Be productive. Volunteer. Give away even when it’s your last crumb. He will pull you through.
