We had a great service where my pastor went through The Lords Supper.  We had some Lamb, unleavened bread, grapes and grape juice.

Here is an affordable and easily obtainable equipment list for those doing any Mobile HOA's from +Ronnie Bincer .  

It is let's get out and get Mobile.
Mobile HOA equipment list March 2014
This year we got a bit more interactive with our Mobile Hangouts on Air (HOA) activity at SXSW. Last year the equipment list had a little less in the way of Audio and Audio Boosting, but we needed to hear the people in the filmstrip of the HOAs this time around.

Special thanks to +Jeff Sieh for his companionship and the great job he did as the 'cameraman' for the various broadcasts and interviews we did. This was certainly a Team Effort, so Big Kudos go out to the team of HOA hosts that were on standby - all Hangout Mastery members - to start up the HOA, as we still are not allowed to initiate HOA broadcasts from a mobile device. Maybe someday that will change, but I'm not holding my breath.

If you have not seen the videos we made, check out this video playlist which includes 32 videos plus an awesome trailer video by the talented cameraman Jeff Sieh.

We will have a Public HOA discussing how this equipment was used and the processes established to make it such a dynamic success. Here is the link to the Public Wrap-Up HOA Event .

There will be a Private HOA for Hangout Mastery members only one day after the Public HOA which will go much further into the nitty gritty details… you can become a member & watch that HOA live or recorded via

Equipment used:
1. Splitter: XLR Jack to Mobile Phone
2. USB/XLR Microphone: Audio-Technica ATR2100
3. Boostaroo 3 stereo jacks Audio Booster
6. Portable Speaker1: iFrogz Boost 
7. Portable Speaker2: Hype Bomb Speaker (or Walmart)
9. Monopod: iStabilizer Monopod
10. Phone Mount: iTrek Super Mount F
11. Portable USB Charger: Zagg SPARQ
Velcro 8" Strips (not shown) holds things together

Thanks for the invite to the community +Michael L. F. Slavin .  I found your post, "Penniless Prisoner To A Millionaire", in the Christians in Business Community very inspiring.  

I am a supporter of micro-businesses to small businesses and I found that some of them are unaware of the asset(s) that are within their own businesses such as their business processes, a training course, or digital product, to name a few.  These are, plumbers, hair stylists, landscaper, caterers etc. who have created their job and are working in the business more that on the business. 

What steps did you take to go from working primarily in your business to working more on your business?

Thanks again.

This article by +Sebastian Anthony gives us a good understanding of what Google is doing to become more than just a search company.

What products/services do you see Google producing in the next five years or so?

How Far We Have Come In 20 Years

..... Oh tech of the 80s/90/00s.....  All the amazing things we have created in the last few years... It's really mind blowing.. :)

... If you traveled back in time to this photograph and told someone that everyone in 2014 has all this technology and ALSO all the knowledge of the world in their pocket.. but most people used it to post pictures of cats and watch videos of people falling down and hurting themselves.... What would they say? :)

Go create something today.. :)

I Coach Pastors and Leaders and Business Owners How to Use Wordpress As A Marketing and Management Tool
    I was born and raised in Baltimore,MD and became a technology enthusiast in my early teens by tinkering with different electronic devices along with experiencing the joys of exploring cyberspace with my first computer, which was a Commodore64.
     After Graduating high school, I joined the US Navy, which was the start of my electronics career.  From this,  I have worked as a technician in electronics manufacturing and consumer electronics.  Then, in 1999 I learned HTML and started developing websites.
     Then in 2007, I began using "The Wordpress Platform" to build  websites and I haven't looked back since.

     So, after using Wordpress for several years myself I wanted to teach others how to install and maximize this wonderful platform.  This led me to develop a website specifically for the purpose of teaching people how to launch and maximize their own self-hosted wordpress blog/website. In fact, in 2012 was launched for this purpose.

My goal is to personally help 1000 Pastors and Leaders launch their Wordpress Website.
