When do you turn down a commission on a million dollar deal?

When it is the right thing to do!

I have been working with some charitable organizations to close a deal that will help hundreds of needy people. There was an opportunity here to try to be compensated, but this is for the greater good.

America has many people in need, now more so than in any time in my life. So when do you turn down a commission on a million dollar deal? When it helps others.

Won't you help too? We need to raise $60,000 in 60 Days to fulfill this mission, this calling, to reach out to those in need. If you are familiar with the Dream Center www.dreamcenter.org than you will understand the need for this kind of ministry in the Midwest.

Join us in fighting poverty and helping others.

As we build the Kansas City Dream Center we will reach out to hundreds, even thousands of people in need. You can be a part of this ministry. Help us, help them, so many people are hurting, so many people are without jobs and without homes. We seek not to give them a fish, but to teach them to fish and provide for themselves; and to be fishers of men.

Hi Ben,

Good for you! Nice to hear there are still so many out there putting others ahead of themselves.

I've done a few chairity sales before, but nothing in that range. Sounds like you really made a difference.

I am so excited to be a miniscule part of this ministry. I can't wait to get the doors open and welcome home the people who need so much to know that Jesus loves them.

There have been and will be many times in my life that I need that reminder, but if we are busy helping those that need it, it is hard to worry about your own problems.

We need 60K in 60 days and I have faith that God will provide!
