Hi, welcome. The site's about victory here. Lots of articles and posts and viewpoints to help you do more, have more, be more, build more, serve, win more.
Starting off, I have a once/weekly newsletter called "Get Some Victory" - you can sign up at http://www.getsomevictory.com. It comes out every Sunday, with a mix of short, practical insights and some actions you can take that week to see some improvements. I've gotten a lot of positive feedback so far, so I think you'll like it - go check that out.
Or you could sign up right here -
