The Overflow Podcast // 020 // Jason Howton talks his 3 fundamentals guaranteed to bring you success in every area of life

Jason HowtonSo a few weeks ago I had the chance to hear Jason Howton share his 3 fundamentals of success talk. It’s one of those messages that embedded deep in the messenger, such that the message and the messenger become one. He shares this message with his kids, he talks about it at his job and in the businesses his family runs, and he chats about it when the chance for “small talk” arises.

The first time I heard about the 3 fundamentals was on a van ride from Birmingham to Tuscaloosa. We were on a men’s Advance (2.0, of all things- go to to learn more), and Jason was wearing an FSU shirt on the way to the Alabama game. We got yelled at, cursed… and we learned about the 3 fundamentals.

What are the fundamentals? Well… they’re the same core concepts his wife, April, uses to run her home business- and her storefront. And they’re the same driving principles their daughter, a balloonist (yes!), weaves into her entertaining and business dealings (and she’s not even in high school, yet!). And, they’re core ideas that help you in marriage, in business, and at football games when you wear the wrong shirt (on purpose).

Alright. Let me re-introduce you to faith, hope, and love. And look at them with fresh eyes as Jason talks through them. They’re more integrated to each other than you might have imagined. And, there more threaded throughout the Bible and all of life than you’ve probably noticed… yet, once you see them like Jason outlines them, you’ll see them everywhere.

Jason’s references:

  • Hebrews 11:6 (faith)
  • 2 Peter 1:5-8 (faith)
  • Proverbs 29:18 (hope)
  • 1 Corinthians 13:1-13 (love)
