Business is about forming relationships. I don’t know of many businesses that survive while walking on the backs of others. That may be Hollywood’s stereotype, but it isn’t the reality in the business world. Successful people help people succeed.
That’s why Ken Davis Productions and Training Minds Ministry hit it off last year. I attended his Professional Speakers Summit, a marketing conference for public speakers, and thoroughly enjoyed it. My ambition to “train minds for action” walked hand-in-hand with Ken’s ambition to train professional speakers. In fact, Ken believed so much in our program that he agreed to speak in Estes Park for our Training Minds Camp.
If you’ve kept up with my family and its ministry, you know that I’ve shared pretty openly that financial struggles have encouraged us to reassess the work we do. (See Reorg post.) Adaptability is a principle for every business, and it is a principle everyone should live by to some extent. Ken and his team knew of my struggles, so they called me up and offered me some work.
I have been thoroughly enjoying it for about two months now. I’m learning the business of entertainment through The Ken Davis Fully Alive Comedy Concert for the Family. I set up a tour in the upper Northwest for next month, and am now in Minnesota to help manage a show in St. Cloud. No kidding, he’s performing today in the same church Wendy and I got married in 21 years ago!
You know what is most fun about this? Meeting the good people via telephone and explaining to them how Ken’s Fully Alive performance will bless their community. I feel very good about this work.
And I’m learning a ton! You’ll see a lot of Ken Davis’ influence in the Jeub Family work in the future. We may not be as funny, but we have the same heart toward Jesus. This is a fun change in the Jeub home.
