Business With a Purpose
There are a number of guerilla business-building techniques explored that will add to your business building and management toolbox.
Business with a Purpose is based on these three simple principles:
You have to get out of the boat before you can walk on water.
God will be there to help you when the economic seas are calm and when they are stormy.
The simple fact is you can’t be successful in business if you don’t start one.
Faith in God is a tremendous advantage in business. If you believe in God your faith will enhance your creativity and creativity is the primary advantage that new and small businesses have over big business. This same faith will serve as your foundation for moving into the unfamiliar waters of entrepreneurship and succeeding. If you have the desire to start your business and you have God as your partner then all you need is the proper business toolbox to start your business. Business with a Purpose is that toolbox. Many people want to start a business but don’t know where to start and they feel the odds are against them. There is also a widely held perception that it is almost impossible to be a good Christian and a successful businessperson. This could not be further from the truth. There are many examples of good Christian businessmen in the Bible, and there are many examples of contemporary businessmen that are Christians. The Bible is also very rich with principles and insights on how to build and conduct a successful God-centered business.
