Jimmy McKinney

Jimmy McKinney is a Kentuckian, born and bred. From his earliest years he loved to take a hammer and nails and any lumber he could find to build something. Eventually in 1989 Jimmy took his first drafting and woodworking classes, and the rest is history. He then attended Eastern Kentucky University concentrating on Business Management, joined the Sigma Pi Fraternity and then enlisted in the US Army Reserves and worked as Unit Supply Specialist. Whenever possible Jimmy did remodeling and small building projects on the side. He also began speaking and consulting. In 1996 Jimmy started a construction company, eventually going full time in 2003. Along the way Jimmy also held management positions with lumber companies, restaurants and factories. His mantra for success has always been: Doing the things you have to do, when you do not want to do them. A few of Jimmy’s passions are to have a balanced life, leave a legacy of leadership and to enjoy the process. Some of the hats Jimmy wears today are Entrepreneur, Public Speaker, Consultant, Business Rescuer and CEO of J&R Construction.

Jimmy has this to say, “My passion is to share with as many people as possible my ups and downs through the challenging economic times, and how I have went from extreme debt and not being able to meet weekly payroll to our current state of profitability and sustainable growth. I want to help individuals and businesses survive the inevitable short-term storms and make it to the calmer waters that lie ahead. Together with the other experts here at Portacle I am committed to rescuing businesses by building a culture of Passion, Trust and Character to replace the existing dysfunction and confusion. In addition to providing the “soft” business skills we also partner with experts in Branding, Web Design, Retail Space Development, Marketing, Business Accounting and Retail Sales. There is really no aspect of business development that I haven’t wrestled with and conquered. Still I have something to learn, and to that end I intend on working on a Master of Business Arts (MBA) degree over the next two years. To this day I am still enjoying the process and looking forward to what the future holds for all of us here at Portacle™.

Michael Hawkins

The fruit of Michael Hawkins’ pursuit of the Master and mastery itself produces a clarity, practicality, and application which is transformational. In addition to his B.S. in Chemical Engineering and M.A. in Ministry & Biblical Counseling, Michael is a certified Transformational Trainer with LanceLearning. His career path led him from chemical engineering to Christian school administrator and educator to his current role as mentor, speaker, and coach to leaders, families, and the Body of Christ.

He shares, “My purpose is to glorify God by fulfilling the assignment He gives me.  I have grown up into this understanding by aligning my will with His.  This was learned through critical life changes which God has directed me through.   One key change was from my chosen profession as a chemical engineer into His chosen assignment as a Christian educator.  Such a change required me to reconcile my identity, self-worth, and security to His ways and not mine.  Living life in alignment with the authority of God has no equal.  He has taught me not only to trust His purpose, but to look for it in every situation.  The importance of positioning myself and those I am responsible for is my top priority.  If I am in the right position, then I see every situation or problem as an opportunity to celebrate what God is doing in my life or the life of a client.  I experience no greater joy than when I see others glorify God as they align themselves with His plan and purpose.

I lead by example.  In doing so, I am ever mindful of my purpose and therefore able to establish the correct priorities to guide my decisions.  Having the correct priorities preserves me and protects me.  Likewise, I encourage everyone I counsel to establish priorities based on God’s purpose in them.   I expect my team to do the same.  We work together to understand our purpose, establish our priorities, and then discipline ourselves in the decisions we make every day. By having the priority of desiring to only do what I see and hear from my Father, I avoid the pitfalls of getting out of alignment with God’s assignment.  And there is no greater tragedy in life than being successful in the wrong assignment.  

True success is defined as adherence to the assignment God gives.  A successful person knows the assignment (or calling if you will) which God gives them and then aligns with that assignment.  For example, when an employee is in alignment with their assignment, they experience something money will never be able to buy: fulfillment.  Fulfilling God’s assignment brings purpose and meaning.  I build teams that have purpose and that experience the joy and satisfaction of seeing their purpose fulfilled.  With this as a backdrop, a team member that is out of alignment or in the wrong assignment is easily identified.  It is the responsibility of leadership to address the situation, and addressing it as an alignment/assignment issue makes it clear.  Just because an issue may be clear, it does not mean that a person is glad to hear the news.  However, when a leader handles the issue with the wisdom and guidance of the Holy Spirit, the situation will work together for the good of all parties.  I have experienced such cases and remain confident of God’s ability and desire to see good come from difficult and painful circumstances.

One of my favorite quotes is, “The greatest gift God gives man is not the gift of sight; it is the gift of vision.  Because sight is a function of the eyes, but vision is a function of the heart.”  As a leader, I have learned that vision is a source of hope and the seed of faith.   When I am a visionary, my teams can see where they want to go and then set about to discipline themselves to accomplish our purpose.  Without vision, we have no chance to succeed.  Experience has taught me that success doesn’t just happen and there is no such thing as luck.  

Life is a process.  Clients that dream big quickly find themselves in distress.  But like Joseph, if they have caught the vision with their heart, then they will see their distress turn into development.  I love to watch clients not only develop, but soon begin to demonstrate mastery over the various things that formerly caused distress.  Obstacles give way as my clients become overcomers.”
