Promotion and Increase!


Promotion and Increase!

Pastor George has been teaching about Promotion! The harvest has come in for the Wolfe Family Bulldogs! Recently I got the impression in prayer that it was time to move on. I started looking through the internal job sites and there were ALL sorts of different positions that came open that do not often come up. Many were of interest to me. I applied to something near ten different positions over the last month.

I have turned down two opportunities to get positions I thought I wanted in the last few months. What you compromise to get you will eventually loose. I did not have peace about those two so I withdrew my application even though I was considered among the, if not the, top candidates.

I got an email asking if I would be willing to come to a group interview  for a Personal Banker Position on Wednesday, which happened to be one of my days off already. PB was a position I tried to get but was turned down for in 2007. I had given up on the idea after subsequent declines.I agreed.

In the days leading up to the group interview my direct manager and his bosses boss were both contacted for references. Both gave me glowing reviews. Then while I was at the group interview the branch managers from the whole district were out to our call center to tour and learn more about what our side of the business does.

I followed up after the group interview with the recruiter immediately by email with a thank you letter for allowing me to apply.

The next day I got an email asking me to come in for a face to face interview with the manager of the branch.

I had a contact within the call center who knew about the retail side so he helped me gather information I could use in the interview.

I was able to go in prepared and confident.

I was able to schedule the in person interview that Saturday. 

The manager informed he would be making a decision by Tuesday.

Wednesday I got the call that I was being offered the position.

Within less than a week and a half I went from invited to hired.

The new position offers me a $3000 a year raise with the possability of adding another $2000 to my annual salary within training. The position will require the exact set of skills I possess.

He was looking for someone with:

  • Business Product Experience
  • Internal only
  • Leadership Training
  • Preferred a Phone Banker because of our unique training with cross sales
It was as though it had been hand crafted for my unique resume, and it was, by the Holy Spirit!

I also feel I was hand carved for it over the last four years. The experiences I've had in the last four years prepared me to do this now. I now see that I was not ready when I was turned down the first time. If I had let bitterness keep me from asking what I could do to change and adapt I wouldn't be here now!

The position will bring me back to the in person contact with my customers which is where I thrive!

The W Story Structure - 4 Sequence Story Structure

Out of everything I've ever read on story structure for fiction writing, the W-Story Structure makes the most sense to me. If you'd rather view these as Acts (3-Act or 4-Act) you can overlay that on this W and it still works.



Glen C. Strathy writes (in much more detail here) in his article, The W-Plot vs. The Dramatica Model of Story Structure. There are four sequences for most stories. Each of the four legs of the W is comprised of a sequence of events that lead the story along to it's natural conclusion.

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)Sequence 2: recovering from the problem (new ideas, positive momentum)Sequence 3: deepening of the problemSequence 4: the resolution of the problem (new light or understanding)

Sequence 1: setting up the problem (creating tension)
The Inciting Event (the event that is at the heart of the reason this story happened) may have occurred before your story begins, and often does. In King Arthur: Legend of the Sword (2017), th…

Cashless Society...

Tale of Two Seasons:
As we quickly approach the last days there are two sets of events simultaneously emerging. The one most average Christians know about, and the one fewer know about. 
Tribulation: Revelation 13:16He causes all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and slave, to receive a mark on their right hand or on their foreheads...
"The Tribulation", a period of 7 years where the earth will come under tremendous stress. Having been vacated of all the Christians, filled with the Holy Spirit, who are the salt and light, and therefore restraining the darkness; the Prince of this present world's system, Satan, will cause his Anti Christ to emerge. 
People will get saved under the preaching of many who knew of the Gospel but didn't believe in their heart or confess with their mouth. There will also be 144,000 Jewish witnesses, from each of the 12 tribes of Israel, who will preach salvation on the earth. Primarily, they will be sent to the people of Israel, and the…

Have you died yet today?

Recently, I said I wasn't religious but I did have a relationship with Jesus. The person replied that is a "textbook" response for a Christian; therefore, I am a Christian; therefore, I am religious.

I have to laugh because "religion" is the dead following of dead traditions. The difference between my two-way relationship with a real living person (Jesus) and a religious person is the difference between a Tree and a Motorcycle. They have nothing to do with one-another.

Yet, I can see how they get it. Religious people would read this passage and see something totally different than I see, yet we read the same passage.
...anyone who has died has been set free from sin... In the same way, count yourselves dead to sin but alive to God in Christ Jesus... Don’t you know that when you offer yourselves to someone as obedient slaves, you are slaves of the one you obey—whether you are slaves to sin, which leads to death, or to obedience, which leads to righteousness?

The Future of Work: Is being a writer (artist, musician, creative) an impractical career?

In a writers group on Facebook, a young writer asked (edited):
How do you respond to family members saying that being a writer is impractical? This is a great question. When I was going to college I stopped pursuing music and theater because it didn't seem to lead to a "practical career". I got bogged down in other things and eventually dropped out (after six years and 78 units). But times are changing and we're in a new type of revolution.

So, what do you think?
What is the future of work? How would you respond?
What is impractical, what does that even mean?First, you reply:
You said 'impractical' when I think you meant 'I'm Practical'. The root of Impractical is Practical, or to be "not-practical". The word practical is derived from the root word PRACTICE.
practicale "of or pertaining to matters of practice; applied,"  All careers require a great deal of practice, hard work, study of the chosen field, and many small wins before th…

FICO, Credit Building, and Credit Cards

FICOSo, I'm still hearing a lot of people say things that are not true, don't make sense, or are just plain bad advice. Credit building is not rocket science. Yes, the formulas and math behind them actually are akin to rocket science math. But some of the basic things the average person needs to know are actually quite simple.
If you want to build credit without paying interest or creating debt read on, or just skip to the bottom to the conclusion. I'm sure you've seen this funny video on TV:


I wrote a post previously about FICO and Credit Decisions, now I want to bring in the focus a little to some basics. The very first things you should know is that THE company that creates your credit score is FICO (the Fair Isaac Corporation). It was started by Bill Fair and Earl Isaac. It is now THE leading credit scoring company on the planet. FICO is the most used credit scoring platform accounting for over 100 BILLION scores sold to date.
