    Contemplating Our Core Values

    in Spirituality

    This week on the Cosmic Citizen we will be discussing core values in the context of The Urantia Book's teachings.  One of the core values that emerged from our shows on bullying was the idea of being an upstander rather than a bystander. Being an upstander means valuing courage. Courage is a core value. Truth, beauty and goodness are also three foundational values frequently expounded upon in The Urantia Book and love is at their core. Consider the following:


    (2:7.12) Truth is coherent, beauty attractive, goodness stabilizing. And when these values of that which is real are co-ordinated in personality experience, the result is a high order of love conditioned by wisdom and qualified by loyalty.


    Values are the fabric of reality, consider these statements:


    (5:4.2) Sooner or later, God is destined to be comprehended as the reality of values, the substance of meanings, and the life of truth.


    (7:1.3) Spiritual values and spirit forces are real. From the viewpoint of personality, spirit is the soul of creation; matter is the shadowy physical body.


    (100:3.5) Values are not conceptual illusions; they are real, but always they depend on the fact of relationships. Values are always both actual and potential—not what was, but what is and is to be.


    Our values are, in fact, powerful drivers of how we think and behave. Ultimately we focus on and create what we value. In the next few weeks we will feature guests who will discuss values and how they effect us and our relationships. 


    Jesus taught that values manifest as fruits of the divine spirit: loving service, unselfish devotion, courageous loyalty, sincere fairness, enlightened honesty, undying hope, confiding trust, merciful ministry, unfailing goodness, forgiving tolerance, and enduring peace.

  • When Do I Need to Register My Company in Another State?

    in Legal

    Many business owners and investors doing business in multiple states often wonder whether their company, which is set up in one state, also needs to be registered into the other state(s) where they are doing business. In analyzing whether you need to register your out of state company in a state where you do business or own property it is helpful to understand two things: First, what does the state I’m looking to do business in require of out of state companies; and Second, what is the penalty for failure to comply. 


    Join Bill and Rick to explore these practical distinctions in order to keep your business protected and prosperous.

    EP Creative Enterprises featured on The Business Forum Show

    in Business

    Join host Kevin Hunter and guest Ellen Palestrant of EP Creative Enterprises on The Business Forum Show to talk breaking new pathways in business and life. You have to give yourself permission to try new things, fail, make mistakes, learn, get better at controlling your fear, and ultimately improve yourself and your business. EP Creative Enterprises is a creativity consultant. 


    Here are some thoughts from Ellen:


    The name of my company, EP Creative Enterprises, reflects what I do which is write, paint, produce, and share my thoughts about creativity with others. At this point, I use both my non-fiction book, HAVE YOU EVER HAD A HUNCH, The Importance of Creative Thinking, and my poetic, theatrical fantasy for all ages THE WORLD OF GLIMPSE (WITH ITS ACCOMPANYING DVD) as vehicles explore and discuss what is to me, a fascinating subject: Creativity.


    Know that a concept is not enough. It is important for that concept to reach its full potential be it a completed product - or what ever you hope it will be come. Perseverance is everything and so is passion. I know that in real life, it is not always possible to love what you do every day, but try to set aside some time to engage in your passion.

    Hiring Challenges - Kevin Hunter and David Ford on The Business Forum Show

    in Business

    At The Business Forum Show, we often hear that business owners have trouble finding the right people to fill open positions. Don't get us wrong - there is a lot to consider in the hiring process. Employers need someone with the correct skill set for the job who is happy with the wages, demands of the position. However, the most important part of the hiring process is the interview and here's why: You can see someone's skills and experience on paper, but you can't tell what their attitude is. We've found that it's much easier to hire a willling participant and teach them the skills they need to know than it is to have a technically sound person who is stubborn or impersonable. 


    Whatever the case may be, consider what hosts Kevin Hunter and David Ford have to make the hiring process more transparent for you. Plan for success. Make it happen!


    What makes The Business Forum Show so unique? We aren’t reporting business news or talking about what happened in the stock market today. Our cast has been in and out of thousands of different companies and we understand both domestic and international markets. Regardless of what your business model is, it’s likely we’ve seen it employed in countless other businesses and understand both the strengths and weaknesses of your plan. Every day we witness the sweat, blood, and tears that owners have invested in their companies. Perhaps more importantly, we’ve seen some of the most unique companies, run by some of the most amazing business owners, many of whom are breaking all the ‘traditional rules’ of business. Do you have any idea what unreasonable limits you might have you placed on your own success? It’s time to find out. Tune in today!
