“Servant Leadership” is a new buzzword phrase lately. Have you heard of it? If you have not, there are plenty of books out there about it. I am not here to give you a book list. I am not here to load you down with definitions. I feel that I have been a servant leader for most of my life: I am a servant first in whatever I do, and the leadership flows. It is a way of life for many, including me, and I can think of no other way to live and to make life better for others.
Servant Leadership is more than volunteering. I can remember my parents being totally involved in everything that had to do with volunteering at our local Catholic church. But that started and stopped their involvement; and then our home life was totally dysfunctional. That is not unusual. But it is not Servant Leadership, and, perhaps, that is what influenced me. I am also not going to list all of the servant leadership I have been involved in.

As it turned out, my career has been all about service–that is who I am. And over the years, I realized my mission and passion–helping others to create a great money relationship for themselves and their families. Everything that Spirit put in my way walked me to today.

As the buzzword phrase, “Servant Leadership” confuses many. Are we not, as we have been taught being in business, being entrepreneurs, supposed to make lots and lots of money. Years of abundance teaching, movies, and books leave us thinking that the dollar is the almighty goal. Well, for me, that is not true. Yes, I have goals that I am still working toward. But they are goals that will make my money relationship better, they will make my family’s life better, they will make my communities better. Yes, I did say “communities”. I have many years left to live and they will be lived in different places. As I work toward those goals as a servant leader, Spirit expects that I take care of my primary responsibility which allows me to do everything else. I must take care of me. I must, first, serve me so that I may serve others. The money and the leadership flows as I do that….
