The Legacy Centre Speaker Series with Dr. Brad Greene


[Virtual Event] "Building Business on Purpose" presented by Bradley Greene, Ph.D., Founder & CEO of Sixeight

Made for More

Happy New Year! In response to current state and local guidelines, we are shaking things up at TLC this month as we kick off 2021 with a new series, “Made for More”, at a virtual edition of The Legacy Centre Speaker Series featuring Dr. Brad Greene on Thursday, January 21. Throughout 2021, our desire is to inspire and challenge you to take hold of the hope we have in Christ, throw off all that hinders you, and grow in the life you were made to live. We look forward to connecting with you in the days and months ahead.

As business leaders, we love predictability so that we can plan our path forward and then support our team as we execute well. With passion and precision, we measure achievement to our goals. Trusting if we work hard and do the right things, the laws of “reaping what you sow” will prevail. Proverbial wisdom is sound wisdom, and most of the time it works. Until it doesn’t. 

We are walking through unprecedented times. Unpredictable times. What do we anchor to in the middle of the storm? If our anchor is in “what” we do, then our boat will be tossed around on the waves when the storms come. Some of you have felt that in the past year. 

In his book, Built to Last, Jim Collins found that the companies that survived for the long term were “built on a purpose” transcending their current markets and their current customers. There has never been a better time to understand our “why” that transcends “what” we do in our businesses. Come what may, a purpose-driven business will outlive the storm and grow its legacy potential.

Right now, much of the world is restless. In this climate, we know it would be easy to dwell on how dramatically and unfairly our lives and businesses have changed due to COVID-19…what we can't do, what we've lost, how wrong things seem (all of which are real issues that we must accept and adapt to in our current reality). BUT there is more to this life! We were made for more. God has called us to a higher purpose and has a specific plan for each of us to fulfill in this moment. We can't afford to waste our lives on trivial arguments, selfish pursuits, today's frustrations, disappointments or fears. Anyway, don’t you think social media has enough of all that without us adding fuel to the fire? The crazy truth is that to discover ourselves – God's ordained purpose for our lives and businesses – we have to get over ourselves. Sooner or later. 

In our new 2021 series, Made for More, TLC wants to encourage you to grow in the life you were made to live. Prayerfully consider: “I was made for _[more]_ (fill in the blank). What if I made ‘it’ more about Him, less about me personally and professionally?” What needs to change? Surely, our perspective would take on a kingdom focus at home and at work as our eyes begin to see more fully as our Father sees. Perhaps you were created for this moment. What a tragedy if any one of us missed the blessing of what God wants to do in our lives – our faith, our businesses, and our relationships – in this season of our lives! Lord, please open our eyes to your purposes.

Join us virtually on Thursday, January 21, as Dr. Brad Greene helps us explore what it means to “build our businesses on purpose” and begin the journey of discovering yours.
