"Become Legendary" - Michael Jordan (NBA Hall of Fame)

The Michael Jordan exhibit continues to grab attention around the country and the world! This exclusive exhibit is currently being displayed in the Basketball Hall of Fame. Now, photos and various video commercials from NIKE are being viewed by millions across the world.

Check out these powerful videos showcased as part of the "Become Legendary", Michael Jordan series.

Inspirational videos with a true message, from the voice of the GREATEST!

It’s not about the shoes
It’s about knowing where you’re going
not forgetting where you’ve started
It’s about having the courage to fail
Not breaking when you’re broken
taking everything you’ve been given
and making something better
It’s about work before glory
And what’s inside of you
it’s doing what they say you can’t
It’s not about the shoes
It’s about what you do in them
It’s about being what you were born to BE!

"Everybody has a Story to Tell" with Dave Irish - Singer and Songwriter

Dave writes virtually all of his music, with the exception of the occasional hymn that he arranges in a style uniquely his own. He is equally comfortable performing alone-just him and his piano-with another accent instrument like a cello, or with his full band. His goal is to work in the ministry context to which his host is accustomed. Dave’s music can be utilized in a variety of ways, here are a few:

- Concerts
- Guest Worship Leader
- Special music that reinforces the theme of a church service
- Special Events-Retreats

Having recorded one CD per year since 1994, Dave hopes to continue recording and exploring new avenues in his music. He is committed to excellence, without sacrificing heart centered ministry Dave and his wife Nancy were married in 1983 and have two daughters, Breanna and  Jess.

A life of worship
Dave uses his music to express his life’s devotion of giving respect and honor to God through His Son, Jesus Christ. His unique expression has touched thousands of lives around the world. His divinely inspired songs are refreshingly honest and transparent, born from a lifelong effort to forge a truth-filled relationship with his Savior, Lord, and Friend. Just as King David’s music brought praise to God and comfort to troubled hearts, so the music of Dave Irish has proven to do the same (1 Samuel 16:22-23)

Financial Policy
Full-time support for Dave’s family comes from his ministry. It’s set up as a nonprofit 501-c3. He has a board of directors who have determined his salary. He’s chosen not to charge a fee for his services. Instead, his compensation for an event is at the discretion of the church or sponsor featuring him.

Below is a recent sample of just a handful of the hundreds of churches and organizations that Dave has blessed with his ministry over the years.

A Revolutionary Business Networking Mobile Application - UNSOCIAL

Multimedia Campaign Produced by: Mindshift Media in Association with STVP

Social networking is a fast growing field dominated by giants. Companies like Facebook, Linkedin and Foursquare have proven how important social networking can be. By connecting users to the people they know, these companies have supplemented the natural network of friends most people have. This proven formula has a challenger though. The appropriately named Unsocial just became the first social networking application that does not care who your friends are. 

Instead, it focuses on connecting users to people they should know. The idea is fairly simple. Unsocial is a smart phone app for Iphone, Android and Blackberry that broadcasts a users personal brand, who they are and what they do to the people around them. The goal is to connect people in related fields. In essence, it introduces you to all the people you should know but don’t. Unsocial launched their groundbreaking application on October 18 at this years Discovery Beat in San Francisco.

For those not in the know, Discovery Beat is an annual meeting of the biggest and most influential app developers. The goal is to find that secret recipe for app discovery and help make new contacts in the industry. Unsocial took discovery beat by storm. 

They were the official conference app of Discovery Beat, and they have been riding the wave of good press ever since. Their app has already garnered praise from the likes of, which said, “It makes locating people at the same event who share similar interests less of a hassle. You can also send notes via the app without having to give away any private info until you know you want to make a connection.”  

Unsocial has also had favorable mentions from Tech Crunch, which said Unsocial is, ideal for large conferences or similar events where attendees have a limited amount of time to identify high-value contacts. The newly launched app even got a mention in The New York Times. All this good press is even more amazing, given that Unsocial is only currently available in San Francisco, New York and more cities soon to come! 

With the developers promising to bring more cities online soon people are almost certainly going to hear a lot more about Unsocial in the future. When this app becomes available globally, a morning commute could become the perfect networking opportunity. Packed trains, busses and subways will become something other than just an inconvenience, they will be the social networking equivalent of speed dating. With so many possibilities, Unsocial is poised to revolutionize the business world and bring a whole new dimension to the social network.

How to Effectively Captivate Your Online Target Audience - Broadcast Your Brand!


In the past, every business needed three things, a good product, a convincing sales pitch and a willing customer. With people doing more and more business online, that list of three has been steadily growing. The latest addition for the successful online business is multimedia.  Having something like streaming video on a website is a must for every business wanting to be taken seriously.

Here is a sample of our home page introduction video, which greets visitors to our website and showcases a short flash video about our business and services.


In today's tech savvy world the importance of multimedia can not be understated. Online video can sell products, promote a business, benefit an organization, tell a story and improve the effectiveness of any website. That may sound like a lot for such a simple addition but video is the most powerful tool in the online marketplace. It can help sell products by offering customers a preview of the items they are interested in. Apple does this with all its products both before and after they are released. That way people can get all the information about an item before they buy, and get help using a product they may already own. When people can see the item before they buy, it builds a feeling of credibility that is missing from much of the online marketplace. This also helps to promote a business. Anyone can put up a website so consumers are looking for a professional, well presented company. A streaming video or motion graphic is just the thing to greet customers and welcome them, while also helping assure them that they are dealing with a legitimate company. Building consumer trust is just the beginning. Video and motion graphics can do so much more to promote a business. This is because they stick with customers long after they have left the page.

People remember 20% of what they hear and only 30% of what they see but a whopping 70% of what they hear and see! That means advertising and marketing money is much better invested in something more than just a simple banner add. People encounter hundreds of those each day and most consumers can’t remember a single one. Customers will remember more from a 3 minute video than they will from a huge block of text. That means company names and contact information are much more likely to be remembered. This benefits the entire organization by spreading the world about the company and helping people remember its message and goals.

The addition of multimedia is about more than just selling a product. It is about selling a company and its ideas. The right video and motion graphic can tell people the story of a company or instantly give consumers a window into what a business does. The possibilities are limitless and growing every day. It is the perfect investment for any company hoping to convey passion, excellence and professionalism along with information.

Social Media Marketing Campaign Helps 21 Year Old College Student Elected to the Oklahoma State House of Representatives

There are plenty of people out there advocating social media. It has been touted online and in the press as the next generation of communication. This very blog has dedicated many articles to the subject. Despite all that, some companies are still on the fence about social media.

After all, it can be hard to understand the true power of sites life Facebook or Twitter, when huge corporations like Apple or CNN are using them. Social networking may be good for them but it could also be that they are just so popular, that people will seek them out wherever they are. That being said, there is one example free from any corporate celebrity or huge budget, that example is a 21 year old college student named Elise Hall. Using a campaign based largely on Facebook and Twitter, she was just elected to the Oklahoma State House of Representatives. Needless to say, before her political campaign, Hall was a fairly ordinary college student. She had not political war-chest or fame to catapult her into public office, just a computer and the drive to succeed. Using Facebook and Twitter, Hall beat out her opponents.

She did all that while still studying and attending classes. By regularly tweeting and organizing her supporters via social networks, Hall was able to enlist an army of followers. In fact, her cunning use of social media not only got her elected, it got her on CNN, a feat any good business owner would love to replicate. This means two things, a promising political career for Hall, and another good reason for every business to get involved with social media.

Blogging 101 - 10 Effective Tips for Business Blogging

Businesses are always looking for new ways to communicate with their customers. Whether its advertising, market research or consumer feedback, every company is trying to better understand their client base. Unfortunately, most businesses overlook the easiest and most underrated method of communication, the blog. Blogs are one of the best ways to spread a message and get people to respond. In fact, there are ten great reasons for every company to create a busy business blog.

1: Its quick and easy. There are a number of great free blogging services that make it very simple to set up a blog. Once the initial blog site is up, it is just a matter of keeping it up to date with interesting articles.

2:  A good blog can grow into an amazing advertising and marketing machine and requires as little as a few hours a week to keep up to date.

3: It provides easy access to company news. A blog can inform customers about sales, product information, events and even company news. It can also provide a great deal of information for other businesses and potential investors.

4: A blog is search engine friendly. Many search engines like Google look for “key words” in websites. A blog can provide thousands of key words. That means it will come up more often for more searches, thereby guiding more potential customers to a businesses website.

5: Blogs mean easier customer access. Customers will be better able to contact the company and share their views. A good blog also makes the company seem more open and accessible, even if it is not.

6: A blog makes the company look like an authority or expert. By writing about a subject on a blog, a business looks like they know their field and are an authority on the subject. That gives customers confidence and can boost sales.

7: Blogs increase brand awareness. Businesses want their name to stick in a customers head. The more times people see or hear a name, the more likely they are to associate that name with the service the company provides. A blog helps link a company’s name to its product in the minds of consumers.

8: Blogs build Rapport. A good blog is written in a more informal style than tradition news. That means customers feel like they know the company. They are more likely to trust the produce and make a purchase.

9: Blogs help gain insight. Customers are fickle creatures and often the only way to find out what they want or like is to speak with them directly. By allowing comments, blogs provide that vital link between customer and company. A blog also allows businesses to track which posts get the most hits and which are most popular. That means more market research data all for free.

10: Blogs answer questions. A good blog answers customer questions before they have to call or email. That means less stress on the customer service department and makes the company look good.

These ten reasons are just the tip of the iceberg, blogs can do much more for any company. With a little work, a blog can even draw in a loyal base of readers which means more sales and free advertising. As long as it is updated regularly and full of good information, a blog is marketing machine. It can be harnessed to work 24/7 pulling in new customers and funneling them towards a businesses website. That makes blogging more powerful and relevant than ever.
