It’s popular to say the customer is always right. It’s also not true. Whether you run a business, nonprofit, or ministry, your team comes first.
Get the right team, and you’re off to the races. Hire the wrong team, and you’ll likely move slowly—maybe even backwards.
So what’s the trick for getting the best people in place?

I am a habitual nap-taker. I take one almost every day and have for years. I used to feel a little guilty about it—like I was slacking off or something. Then Sam Moore, my predecessor at Thomas Nelson, admitted to me he too was a napper.
“Every day after lunch, I lie down on the sofa in my office,” he recounted. “I hold my car keys in my right hand and let my hand hang toward the floor. When the car keys fall out of my hand, I know I’m done.” (Evidently, the famous artist Salvador Dali had a similar practice. He called it “slumber with a key.”)

As a leader, the health of your marriage directly affects the impact of your leadership. I have witnessed this time and time again. Being effective at work or in ministry begins by being effective at home.
Early in our marriage, Gail and I attended a church led by a dynamic, thirty-something pastor. He was an extraordinary communicator. He was a wise and empathetic counselor. As a result, the church grew rapidly.
What do you do when you’re lost? You know the feeling: You look around and things are unfamiliar. You feel uneasy. Your confidence evaporates.

When I realized I was off track, I stopped and checked my phone. Thankfully, I had a signal and could use the map to find my way back.
Recently, my daughter Mary mentioned that she would like to begin speaking professionally. As an accomplished businesswoman and popular blogger, she was routinely on stage, but she was ready to turn pro. She asked for my help.
As an amateur-turned-pro myself, I sat down and deconstructed how I got started. I emailed her a simple, step-by-step plan. But the more I thought about it, the more I realized it really applies to anyone who wants to get started as a professional speaker.
