The AMOKArts Journey through Michael Hyatt’s Platform Starts July 18th
I recently posted a review of Michael Hyatt’s Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World. The subhead on the book says it all, “A step-by-step guide for anyone with something to say or sell.” To say I loved this book would be an extreme understatement. Before putting it into practice, I read it cover to cover. I did that, it’s great and I am ready to go and I wanted to invite you to come along for the ride.
I’m going to start by posting my starting statistics for this blog and then post the action steps I’ve taken as I go step-by-step through the book. I’m not going to give you everything so you can skip the book, because if I had my way every creative would read it. I’d love to have discussion going all along the way with others who are taking the journey.
I’ve decided to start Wednesday July 18, so you have a little time to get the book. I’ll post each time I accomplish another of the tasks.
Pick it up at your local bookstore today or you can help AMOKArts out a little by ordering it through this link Platform: Get Noticed in a Noisy World
If you are a creative or have any kind of ministry, Let’s do this journey together and help each other “get noticed in a noisy world” to the glory of God.

I’ve been reading several excellent books lately on the subject of trying to refine the work of this ministry, grow it and make it more effective for building up the Kingdom. One of the things I have been reminded to do over and over again is to generate a mission statement. I think I’ve always sort of known what I hope to accomplish through this ministry, but the experts are right, having this statement will provide me with a filter as I try to discern the good ideas from the God ideas, prioritize my efforts and make the best use of my time.
Here is my first run at a mission statement. I’m interested in your thoughts…
The mission of my life/ministry is to use my God-given creative gifts to:
• Introduce people to Jesus Christ
• Encourage people to find and use their God-given gifts to serve God and others and
• Be a blessing to those in need, making the world a better place one soul at a time.
Now for the big question. What’s your mission statement? Try to generate one, and if you feel so inclined, share it here.
By the way, this statement can always be found under the About tab above.
