6 Traits of a Successful Christian Woman Entrepreneur

I’ll never forget the day when my first business/ministry went LIVE on the Internet. I was thrilled with excitement about what the future held and I couldn’t wait to see all the lives that God would allow me to impact. As I set out on this entrepreneurial journey, I quickly learned that while there were good days, there would also be some very hard days. Days where I not only questioned what I was doing, but days where I wondered if God would allow this “business” to grow. After pursuing a couple of businesses, God led me in another direction, Social Media. And even though I had some successes with my other 2 businesses, God was leading me to another field, another harvest. I had to be willing to let go of my “first entrepreneurial … [Read more...]

Capturing God-Given Opportunities

When I first entered the world of Social Media in January of 2012, I was meeting with a business coach. And I vividly remember sharing with her how I REALLY wanted to serve churches; I wanted to help churches with their online presence. And when I shared this with her, she immediately said, "Don't do it. You'll never make money." And because I was so new to this "harvest," I took her words to heart and moved forward in other ways.

How To Overcome The “Fear of Missing Out.”

Does the “Fear Of Missing Out” get the best of you? Do you easily get off track when a bright, new, shiny object comes your way? New opportunity? New course? New coach? New city? New Home? New job? New business partnership? These things are not bad, but when God has given you something specific to focus on and something specific to give your time to, then yes, these things are just “things” that will distract you and keep you from completing the task that God has already given you. Today, let’s look at Noah. God told him to build a boat, a big boat, because a flood was coming, something that Noah had never experienced before or really, even understood. God spoke and gave him a very specific assignment; an assignment that was not easy. … [Read more...]
