Growing into the Entrepreneur You Were Meant to Be

Uncategorized Aug 16, 2016

Being entrepreneurs requires so much of us—our hearts, souls, minds, and bodies—a constant journey of self-reflection, self-discovery, and self-motivated action to fill the gaps and to address the needs so that we keep moving forward.

As entrepreneurs, we are on a perpetual mountain climb, constantly reaching for new supplies and new tools that we didn’t even know we needed, nor could have foreseen needing, until we arrived at the next summit. The whole process of doing this--even the very ability to begin the journey called Christ-centered entrepreneur--changes not merely our knowledge but our very selves. 

Through this journey, I have become more:

  • Mentally tough
  • Self-disciplined
  • Deliberate
  • Planned
  • A calculated risk-taker
  • Trusting of God
  • Reliant on His provisions
  • Obedient to His calling 

 The whole process of doing this--even the very ability to begin the journey called Christ-centered entrepreneur--changes not merely our knowledge but...

5 Tips to Conquer Procrastination

Uncategorized Jul 19, 2016

Even action-driven, high-achieving, Christ-centered entrepreneurs are not immune to procrastination. Procrastination is our enemy; it can stop us dead in our tracks, paralyzing us with countless fear-filled questions:

“But what if I fail?” “Can I do this?” “Am I up to the task?” “Who am I to want to do this?” and so on.

Procrastination can also send us down rabbit holes.

“Just one more minute, then I’ll get back to work” “Wow, I just got sucked into this movie and didn’t realize two hours had flown by.” “I really, really, really—right now—need to organize my dryer lint collection."

Ah, the mind games we play with ourselves. And all the while we’re playing these games, time flits away like an elusive butterfly, moving us further from intentionally growing our businesses until it may be too late.

Just who do you think you are?

Uncategorized Feb 16, 2016

 Just who do you think you are?! 

I’m sure many of us, sometime in our lives, heard that statement of indignation, disgust, horror. And it was meant to “put us in our place.” Maybe you heard it at work when you applied for that promotion or made a gutsy decision. Or maybe you heard it as a kid, when you wrote an essay that received an “A+” or when you made the basket that won the game. 

No matter how young or how old you were when you heard it, it still stung. Even for a moment, it made you feel less than the person you knew yourself to be. 

And you know . . . you were right. 

You’re right not because of some absurd delusion you have of yourself, but because of a timeless truth. YOU . . . are special. You are uniquely, individually-created by a loving God. 

We’re told in the Book of Genesis that God created the world, starting with saying “Let there be light.” And there was light. From there, God...
