How I Discovered a Solution to Organizations' Financial Difficulties by Lawrence E. Kepecs
The problem: The current economy is failing organizations, Churches and Synagogues. They have large overhead expenses, and they rely heavily upon the donations and dues from their memberships.
The current economy is failing organizations, Churches and Synagogues. They have large overhead expenses, and they rely heavily upon the donations and dues from their memberships. But what if the economy is preventing the members from donating the way they used to? What if revenue is drying up for an organization as well as for its members? Is that extra car wash fundraiser really going to make a difference in the long run or should we really begin looking at other more serious alternatives to solve this problem once and for all.
For those who know me, my background is that of a religious leader, concert artist, speaker, and educator of over 25 years. Meeting challenges head on, whenever I encountered a problem in my circles, I relentlessly experimented to seek a solution to that problem. Often experts were not able to help me, so I was left on my own to discover the solution to the problems I was facing. If you were to read my other articles, they deal with my conclusions on naturally curing the most stubborn warts, toe fungus, and lowering cholesterol levels. Those who have tried my methods are shocked to find they actually work. I have created a special method to "see" in the darkest of dark. I fixed a certain hoarseness that was plaguing me for years, simply by fixing the air in my home. I am currently working on natural methods to cure baldness in men and women, and other projects. When it came to singing, I tackled the most difficult pieces in the repertoire, and so I am not afraid to tackle large projects.
I have recently been exploring helping entire communities behind the pulpit, fix their financial problems. Imagine a Synagogue working toward the goal of making the traditional dues structure completely obsolete. These techniques, utilizing the "Power of the Many," can be powerful enough to permanently alter the course of an organization's financial future, a house of worship's future, or an individual's future with very little risk. Helping people my entire adult life deal with their life cycle events, from the birth of a child, to death, now, I get to help them in a way that I wasn't able to do before. It's very refreshing.
When it comes to big business, I've learned from my teachers, Millionaires and Billionaires, how the 'real' world works. From the time we are children, we grow up trained to spend our entire lives thinking in a way that is counter-productive, actually hurting ourselves in the process, and preventing us from getting ahead in life. It is for those few who realize this mistake and take measures to correct it, that allow the seas to part, letting one through to a more prosperous time ahead. Those who are closed minded, will be locked into their own world, forever, never to understand where true prosperity and progress comes from. I remember hearing my Biblical Archaeology and Chinese Philosophy Professor back in my college days saying: "A great student must find a great teacher, and together they can accomplish miracles." This concept also comes from Ethics of the Fathers, where the Sage, Yehoshua ben Prachya says: "Establish for yourself a teacher, acquire for yourself a friend, and judge every person favorably." Without a mentor to respect, a person is directionless, which holds true for financial prosperity as well.
If your organization is struggling financially, and in need of financial therapy, and they are open to new approaches, I think I can help them accomplish their goals with incredible results, but you cannot be afraid to try them. Over-analyzing without trying leads to procrastination, which ultimately leads to failure. When Thomas Edison was asked after his 700th attempt to invent the electric light had failed, 'how it felt to have failed 700 times', he replied: 'I have not failed once. I have succeeded in proving those 700 ways will not work. When I have eliminated the ways that will not work, I will find the way that will work.' The answer all lies in the ways we think.
