A skilled communicator is someone who is able to convey points that build bridges across those parts of our life that we often tend to view in isolation. Over here are those topics and issues that we have labeled "personal," right there are those things that come under the "professional" heading and scattered about, at least in our minds, are those details that we put in figurative boxes for spiritual, physical, relational and any variety of other matters.
In truth, no matter how much you may want to install a "firewall" between these so-called areas of your life, they are inextricably interrelated. As leadership expert John C. Maxwell has named one of his many books, There's No Such Thing as Business Ethics. That is because there is only "ethics" that apply to all aspects of our lives, and business is simply one of them.
For public relations and marketing, whether it's serving small local businesses or huge international organizations, integrity--being a person of your word--is one of the most powerful forces in your arsenal. And in PR and marketing, a substantial part of being true to your word is fair dealing in your finances, from being a faithful steward of the budget that a client has entrusted to you to putting forth an honest effort in the time for which you bill a client.
One of the most renowned authorities in that arena is Terry Felber, author of The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant and an occasional speaker over the past few decades as an Amway Double Diamond at World Wide DreamBuilders (WWDB) conferences in and around Chicago, among many other places around the globe.
This coming Friday, at 8 p.m. Central time, Felber will be interviewed on the Christian Television Network (CTN) about marketplace ministry and healthy Biblical finances as he shares principles from The Legend of the Monk and the Merchant. Bob D'Andrea will interview Felber on The Good Life, which airs on Dish TV, Direct TV and some 15 television stations.
You can also see the show as it is live-streamed over the web.
