03: New Ways of Thinking About Community Building with Scott Caldwell

Scott is an entrepreneur who has a passion for introducing new ways of thinking coupled with structure and frameworks to promote growth for non-profit and community minded organizations.  He is a devoted husband and father to, what he terms, “his girls”  Misty (wife), Macey and Marlee.  Scott is a lover of life that tries to make everyday meaningful in his life and the lives of those he comes into contact with.

What you’ll hear in this episode:

  • Scott is a home-grown Texan going down an unexpected path.
  • How his passion as an entrepreneur in the business world allows him to help non-profits and community-minded organizations
  • How Scott has already helped raise MILLIONS of dollars for organizations, and how he dreams of going international with his business one day
  • Scott turns to Philippians 4:6-7 for inspiration, especially when he feels the stress and anxiety of running a business.
  • A favorite quote of Scott’s is: “The day is over and I’m leaving the office with a tremendous sense of accomplishment. What have I achieved?”
  • How Scott’s work gives a great sense of purpose as he touches many lives through the organizations he helps
  • How Scott stumbled upon this business, with each step on the trajectory leading him into work with local governments and non-profits
  • Scott says the best thing about his day is working with people who are passionate for a cause; this gives great meaning to what he does.
  • Of the Seven Mountain culture, Scott focuses primarily on the business mountain.
  • In a nutshell, he helps organizations set up the framework for raising money, being effective, running at an optimal level, and growing their impact.
  • One of Scott’s biggest challenges is the trap of people-pleasing, of caring TOO MUCH what others think about him. This has given Satan a stronghold over him at times.
  • Scott realizes that he is totally dependent upon God, and nothing else, being used as a vessel for His service.
  • How Scott has learned not to seek his validation in other people or material things
  • The pivotal moment for Scott was when he shifted in his business from working with local governments to non-profits. Seeing lives touched let him know THIS is the right thing.
  • How Scott has realized that his “ministry” is everywhere and in everything he does
  • What is your biggest strength? “Administration and mercy—these are exactly the gifts I need to do what I do.”
  • What is your biggest weakness inside that strength? “Being impatient with people! Wanting everything to happen NOW and not realizing that it’s a process.”
  • What is God stirring up inside of you right now? “In the last 1-2 years in helping others, I’ve realized that ministry is not limited to the pulpit or to church work. Ministry is in everyday life.”

Kung Fu Round Questions:

  • How do you share the gospel in your everyday life? “My goal is for every person I contact to SEE the difference in me and want to know what it is. I want them to know that it’s God who makes the difference.”
  • What daily habit do you have that contributes to your solid walk with God? “I have a quiet time every morning. I read the devotional, Jesus Calling; I read scripture, pray, and take time to seek God. When I enter my office every day, I hit my knees and give my day and my business to God.”
  • What meaningful book have you read recently? Presence: Bringing Your Boldest Self to Your Biggest Challenges by Amy Cuddy
  • What resource have you found helpful that you can share with our listeners? “It’s not one resource in particular. It’s to never stop learning. I have a goal to read two books each month—educational material that helps me grow.”
  • What advice would you give to the “younger” you? “I would speak to myself at age 21 and say, ‘Grow up a little bit, man! Don’t seek validation from others, but go to God. He is the ONLY source of true validation’.”
  • What parting advice do you have for our listeners? “Wake up every day and LIVE it. Have a passion for what you do. If you can’t, then figure it out, find it, and start LIVING it!”

Gifts-Talents-Hardwork- And You

 

 

 

 

 

Whenever I think of hard work and talent, it makes me think of college football. I was fortunate enough to play on a scholarship at a division II school. Believe me, there was talent in abundance. I saw guys from all over the nation that were bigger, faster, and better than anyone I had ever had the privilege of playing with. What was interesting is that many of the guys I had played with had been scouted by Division I schools or even came from important well-known schools but couldn’t make the grades or ACT scores to play at their school of choice. This was now their second chance to get to play at a competitive level, and hopefully still get drafted for the NFL. Over the two years I played there, there was one guy that stood out to everyone, the team star. He was a few years ahead of me and wholesale jerseys had been transferred in from a Junior College. He was well built, impressively fast, had loads of natural talent. There was no doubt he was a stand out with his natural abilities, and he even got by with hanging out on the side lines and watching us work hard most of the time. He did practice some, but never at quite the level most of us did. Personally, I had to work harder than a lot of the other men, because I was the shortest guy on the team for most of my career. I was 5’ teriyaki 6” and weighed 180 pounds as a tailback. I had my own natural abilities to help me close the Space gap and make me more competitive including; speed, strength, hard work ethic and a lot of determination. If my memory serves me correctly, our star player led our conference on yards for 1-2 years and made a name for him self in college football. His senior year he along with a few others were drafted, and there was a lot of excitement on our team. What I came to learn over the next year was very surprising. This young man led the NFL in rushing as a rookie and was doing great, except for one thing, his work ethic was zero. During his years in college he was never pushed to work hard or develop his talent to the level he was capable. Even though he was a complete stud in college and doing great as a rookie in the NFL he got cut from the team. I heard he got picked up by another team and did great again leading in rushing yards but would eventually get cut again due to no 9.11.! effort and his cheap jerseys inability to work hard. By the following year he was working on a loading dock for a beer company, not because of a lack of talent, but because of a lack of work ethic. I believe, every one of us has been given a Chillventa certain level of talent in different areas and it should be our goal to use those gifts and Post talents to go out and make a difference where God has placed us. If you know where you are gifted then do your absolute best to excel no matter how big or small you may think it is. We are all called to make a difference in our sphere of influence and are specifically called as Christians to bring a heavenly experience to earth. Whether it’s in business, education, entertainment, government, media, sports or any other area that affects society I encourage you to go out and be the change. You were created with a purpose, and with specific gifts, talents and natural abilities that no one else can specifically do quite the way you can. You are as unique as a snowflake. Maybe you look like all the others when you fall to the ground but you are an individual. Made to stand out, and make a difference in this life. For those of you who just aren’t sure what your talent is, I encourage you to pursue finding it. Find books, take a DISK test, do what ever you need to do and find cheap NFL jerseys your purpose. Ask yourself when I look back on my life in 30, 40 or 50 years from now will I be content knowing I did all I could to develop what was placed in me or will you look back and be filled with regret? There are people around you that need YOU to fulfill your purpose because of the difference you make. Find it, cultivate it, work hard at it, and change the culture around you!

 

To Your Success,

Jon Fuller
