Will you launch a faith-based business or a ministry? Does one help or the other help you serve people better? If you launch a business, can you still apply the thought processes you would if you were church-planting or running a non-profit?
I’ve had the opportunity to be part of two church planting teams as well as launch my own faith-based business. My first experience with leadership was in a small group in my neighborhood and then when I led prayer and trained intercessors in our local church. Next I wanted to learn to how to use my own testimony and experiences to help people receive breakthrough so in 2007 I launched SUCCESSnotsabotage coaching. I also have done a lot of speaking on how to brand your business or ministry (same process).
My favorite part of owing my own business is the significance I have gained from watching God redeem all the pain I went through in my early years. I have watched the Lord set hundreds if not thousands of people free and been part of launching hundreds of men and women into using their testimony in coaching, speaking, blogging and writing their own books. I can also be invited to secular organizations and not be pigeon-holed into a specific genre.
The choice you make whether to launch a business or ministry will affect the way you lead and in this video I give you three specific reason’s I opted for a business as opposed to a ministry and how I have grown successfully with what was in my hand rather than a huge marketing budget.
