A colleague and a mentor once said something that has remained with me for many years. The scenario was that I was a soon to be father for the very¬†first time, and my wife and I were soon to find out that we’d be doubly blessed (yes twins). His statement was a simple one, he said there is an old Chinese phrase that loosely translated would mean “You are now rich in the heart, and poor in the pocket”.
After an additional 4 years we were blessed with another child, and another year after that our 4th blessing was born!

  5. Hi Chris!! I like that Chinese proverb! I may have to borrow it from you if you don’t mind hehe! I have two daughters of my own and I am super rich in the heart! I can only imagine having two more like you and your family!

    Cheers and Good luck!


  6. When I first saw this title Purpose | Rich In The Heart on google I just whent and bookmark it.I’m extremely impressed along with your writing abilities as well as with the format on your blog. Is this a paid subject matter or did you modify it yourself? Anyway keep up the nice high quality writing, it’s uncommon to look a great weblog like this one today..

    • The subject matter is my own. Basically when something strikes me the right way, I just go ahead an post it on my website for discussion.

    • WatchOutForSpam says:

      Just a heads up, posts like this are actually spam. Watch out for posts that don’t reference what you wrote at all but instead make general comments like “I’m really impressed with your blog.” They’re baiting you for a response.

      How do you know I’m a human and this isn’t a spam post? Watch this: I like what you said about being “Rich in heart and poor in the pocket.” Also, I found your site from RB40. Thanks.

  7. Thanks for visiting. Please come back as frequently as you want. Hopefully I can write some engaging articles. :-)

  8. “Professional” in what way? Do you mean someone who only does that for a living, or would an English major in their Junior or Senior year at a local college work for you?

  9. Thank you very much Rupert. You also can register using the link above the “Entries RSS” link on the right side of the website.

  10. Due to it’s nature, the Internet is a very difficult thing to manage against content being stolen. It can be done, but often the costs to do that exceed the benefit. Which is why everything I have on this site is freely available to all, but the content as written is inherently protected under copyright guidelines.
    Some of this may easily have been written at other sites on the Internet itself, but I try to put it in my own words with my own style to present it in a unique and sometimes more understandable way. Hopefully I’m effective at that. :-)

    With that being said, if someone would like to use the information that I’ve written for their own website, I would appreciate it if they would simply send an email to me at admin [at] richintheheart [dot] com (obviously replace the items in brackets with the proper character.

    As for examples of how to prevent the plagiarism or copyright infringement from occurring, one could approach it in a few ways that I can think of:

    • images can be superimposed with a faint copyright notice or company logo, that is light enough to not disturb the image too much. This can be accomplished by automatically merging images with a fixed image that has a transparent background using tools such as PHP or .NET
    • the information can be contained in a flash file or as an image, making it more difficult to copy the text
    • text itself can be protected by encrypting it using a stand alone, or web based encryption tool before posting it to the Internet, and the content is decrypted by the browser using Java or JavaScript.

    Hopefully this helps.
