Servant Leadership is not for the meek! Hear Saturday how instead, this sharing of leadership attracts top talent; reduces turnover; opens the doors to innovation; and inevitably gives leaders and organizations a better ROI on their marketing efforts.
Michael Ross

Michael Ross is an award-winning journalist and former editor of Breakaway, a national magazine for teen guys published by Focus on the Family. He is also the author, co-author, and collaborator of more than 32 books for Christian families, including the Gold Medallion winner BOOM: A Guy's Guide to Growing Up (Tyndale), a bestselling parenting guide What Your Son Isn't Telling You (Bethany House), and his current release Worry-Free Living (Authentic).

Michael and his wife Tiffany live in Lincoln, Nebraska, with their young son Christopher. Today, he oversees Back to the Bible's book publishing efforts. Michael studied journalism and art in California. After college, he began his writing career in Los Angeles-where he spent countless hours working with inner-city youth and their families. These experiences sparked in him a heart for disadvantaged teens. In 1990, he co-founded Breakaway (a national magazine for teenage boys). In 2002, he and a team of wilderness guides began taking readers on summer backpacking excursions near Yosemite National Park. And three years later, Michael launched Breakaway's Father-Son Adventures in Colorado. Under the guidance of Noah's Ark Whitewater Rafting Co., these backcountry trips were designed to strengthen relationships between dads and their teenage sons.

During Michael's publishing career, he has written and edited thousands of articles and has interviewed hundreds of athletes, musicians, actors, as well as amazing people from all walks of life. Some of his most memorable interviews include: actors Sylvester Stallone and Stephen Baldwin, director Catherine Hardewicke (Twilight, Lords of Dogtown), teen superstars Jonas Brothers, CCM artists Kirk Franklin, Skillet, and Steven Curtis Chapman, country music band Sawyer Brown, Indianapolis Colts' Hunter Smith, and UFC fighter Nathan "Rock" Quarry.

Michael is sure to become a Game Changers' favorite on Saturday as Lisa reviews his latest publication, Worry Free Living with him to help us all move forward without fear or trepidation in winning the battle over worry. Lisa and Michael will discuss some of the common faces of worry and more importantly how to overcome toxic habits like busyness that ultimately derail our true path to a more fulfilling life.

Excerpt from Worry Free Living: 

Most of us believe it's normal to be busy - frantically racing through day after day, multitasking from deadline to deadline. Combine that with how we've become depersonalized and isolated on our computers and devices at our jobs, in our communities - even in our homes and our churches. These cultural conditions make commonplace the maladies of stress and anxiety. Many of us thrive on the excitement of an adrenaline rush, especially those who crave exhilaration and chase after energy that they perceive will spur them to achieve great things. (pg. 46)


Gilles Walters
Just when you thought there were no more rules to be broken, lawyer turned rapper, Gilles Walters emerges onto the music scene to follow his dreams in uncompromising ways. When asked in Black Enterprise earlier this year, "How do you balance being an attorney and pursuing your rap career?" Gilles replied, "That part is pretty easy. As an indie artist, I am also the chief financier of this music. So if you think about it, the law makes the rap possible. As far as the process is concerned, ideas are always flowing so I never stop creating, even at work. Make no mistake about it, though, I'm an artist first." Artist first indeed, from his tailored denim all the way down to the carefully curated accessories, one need not be a rocket scientist to figure out everything about Gilles Walters is deliberate. He deliberately spent several years in higher education including earning his Juris Doctor from Howard University only to juxtapose it with his pursuit of life and career as a rapper . 

Gilles' eloquence and charm prove he is both a scholar and a gentleman aiming to inspire others as he changes the game for himself. We will hear on Saturday how he is gaining traction around the country as a rapper among a host of other traits he brings to life and fans through his rhythms. 

Hear how Gilles' lyrical genius turns his uncommon stories into our stories. Esquire Walters also has you covered on how to develop a plan for quitting your day job to pursue your dreams...if you are ready to call it a 'wrap', that is.
