Christian Motivation Let God be in Control!

cross500Christian motivation is a whole different ball game than the world’s idea of doing what you want with drive and determination. Christians should desire to please the Lord and not themselves or others. 

 As Christians, you should not be crowd pleasers, working for self glory, fame, applause, or fortune. “Know your why” for building your home based business and let God’s Word motivate you and lift you higher.  

You want to be able to spend quality time with your family, have the ability to raise your kids in a Godly environment, have the finances to accomplish your goals and dreams, by owning your own business… and to create this you must also be willing to let God be in control.

Today you have the opportunity to take the world out of your business and put the Word in. (Take the “l” out of world) God is waiting for you to turn over the reins to Him and let Him be in control.

When you allow God to take control of all aspects of your life, you open the door to multiple blessings in your life, your home, your business and your well being. God is waiting on you!!  So take the reins in your hands and throw them into the air and let God grab hold of them!

 

If you never give God a try, you will never know the blessings He can bring to you. So why not give it a try, let God be in control and then sit back and see what kind of results you get.  The Word of God promises to take care of you. You need to have faith, trust in God and the willingness to listen to what God says. 

1 Chronicles 29:12 Wealth and honor come from you; you are the ruler of all things. In your hands are strength and power to exalt and give strength to all.

Have a Blessed Day!

 

 

It’s not about Religion

10986-its-not-about-religion

It doesn’t revolve around what religion is or is not!                                                             It is about what relationship you have with God!

How you run your business is not about having or not having religion in it. It is about carrying God in your heart and your relationship with him that puts God in your business.  If you carry God in your heart and you are striving to do business the way you know it should be done, you will prosper!

So many people are afraid to let God in when it comes to business because they are afraid that it will somehow deminish the amount of business they receive.

If you truly believe and know in your heart that God is blessing you, stand proud and shout to the world that you, your house and your business believe in God!  The possibilities are endless when it comes to the blessings God will bring to you when you go against the worldly ways and stand for what you believe in.

If a person doesn’t come to your business because you believe in God, no worry…God will bring you 10 who will!

Be blessed and stand proud and let the world know that you have the best products, the best customer service, the best deals and the best of the best when it comes to bosses.  God is the owner of my business and I work for Him. How about you?

Blessings!

Christians Call To Vote!

No matter who you vote for, it is important that you, as Christians, don’t sit on the sidelines this year. It is an important election that will effect millions. It is not about religion, it is about the relationship you have with God that is important. And noone should be able to take that away from you!!

I, of course have my own preference on candidates and I am not trying to sway anyone’s vote. I am strickly saying that it is important to get to the polls and cast your ballot.  If you are not sure who to vote for this year, find a quiet place and go into your heart and let God guide you.

So many Christians did not vote 4 years ago and we see the effects of this today. How much longer are you going to sit on the sidelines and let the government take God out of the US and your rights as Christians out of your hands.

We should not have to fight for our beliefs. Yet we struggle daily to even talk about God without if offending someone.

  • God is not allowed in schools
  • God is not allowed in public places
  • Christians are not allowed freedom of speech if it offends someone
  • One person can complain about a cross and it can be taken down
  • Christians are not allowed _____________________________
  • Christians are not allowed _____________________________

You can fill in the blanks yourself. You have heard and seen the oppression of Christians around the world. I ask you to take time tomorrow to go and stand up for what you believe in.  Know the facts and trust in God to guide your heart. You have a voice and it’s time for Christians to be heard.

Below is an article that I believe has some merit.

Stand Strong in Your Beliefs

Working as a Christian in the world today has many disadvantages. We are shunned, talked about, and outcast, all due to our standing strong in our beliefs in Christ. I say to you… Stand strong in your beliefs and don’t allow the worldly ways to sway you.

Be bold in all you do.  You need to focus on how you can demonstrate to customers that, no matter what goes on around the world, you can be trusted for who you are and for what you are. Mind you, trust isn’t something you can fake, you must be sincere. You must sincerely mean what you say and do!

There is no reason to be shy. As a fellow Christian I am not bashful about being a Christian. Those that know me do business with me because of what I stand for, (honesty, integrity, sincerity) not what I am.  I don’t shove my Christianity down my clients throats, yet my compassion shows when a client is having a hard time, needs to talk etc…

It’s all about being me! So be who you are regardless of where you’re at and who is there with you. God will Bless those that do not turn their back on Him. Whether it is business or personal, there is no distinction, our God is ready to bless and protect. So, be bold and be strong.

People are starving for relationships they can understand with people they can trust. Stand Strong in Your Beliefs! Bring it!

In Today’s World it is Survival of the Faithful!

In today’s World it is survival of the faithful!

In Today’s World we are fighting just to survive in business. With economy in the grips of hell and families struggling to feed themselves, where do you turn for answers?

God has been and will always be my driving force! If not for having God in my corner, I would probably have closed the doors to my business a year ago. However my faith in God has been my saving grace. I know in my heart that God will provide and He has!

  • What is you faith structure?
  • Do you know that God is going to take care of you?
  • Do you believe that business will survive?
  • Do you know that the money you need will materialize?

Don’t allow the world to control you, your business or your life. Have the faith to believe that God will provide for all your needs! No Matter What!!
Being in the advertising business in a world where the economy is hanging on to every penny has been a challenge. However, though we have struggled we have survived and our bills have been paid.

That is due to our faith in God providing for our needs.

When Christians band together, each helping their fellow Christian, we form a united force. One that the world, the government cannot breakdown.  A force that is strong and will grow as we build our business and our lives around our belief in God.

How would 10 fellow Christians help your business?

How would 100 fellow Christians help your business?

Seek like minded people to grow your business and your faith. I work with many Christians who want to promote their business. I love helping those who believe as I do and who are striving to do the same things I am. Because of this I have helped them strengthen their business and their beliefs as well as survive in a world that is trying to suppress them.

If we band together as survivors of the Faithful we will overcome and conquer a world trying to erase us from existence.

Christian Marketing

Are you looking for the proper Christian marketing strategies that it will take to help you market your business? The key that you need to pay close attention to, regardless of whether you’re a Christian or a non-believer, you should always market your business with integrity and ethics.

Using Christian marketing strategies in your business – realize that you don’t have to become a bible pusher when marketing to your prospects. You don’t have to quote scripture and plaster Jesus all over the place to get your point across. Whatever is in your heart, just go with it and don’t worry about what other people think. There are so many who believe that you have to market God and that’s just not true. If you behave in a way that is “Christ Like”, when speaking to a business owner about marketing, they will listen.

You don’t have to be over the top and you don’t have to quote scripture. If you behave in a way that God created you to be, loving, caring, compassionate, and respectful, you will have a better opportunity to share (not sell) what you are promoting.  If you haven’t tried it…. when you do let me know.

Blessings and God Look!

 

Don’t let the weekend blahs create your Monday blues

 

Monday is the one day that everyone seems to dread.

I say Let’s Make the Most of it!

Monday is the day you start your week, the day calls are made, appointments are set and the ground that the best week ever will be planted in! Or better yet, set appointments to start your week off right.

Don’t let the weekend blahs create your Monday blues.  Make Monday’s something you look forward to doing and not something you won’t be all that excited about. Set appointments on Monday to get you motivated for the week. Meeting new clients at lunch or over coffee is a great way to get in the swing for the week.

When you have something to look forward to, your day goes by much quicker than if you didn’t have anything to look forward to, that differs from the normal.  So why not start the week out with a positive.

Attitude really does make all the difference! Instead of thinking about how much you are dreading waking up early for work, try thinking about a positive quality of your job that you really enjoy, why not wake up with the excitement of a meeting with a potential new client and the blessings God has given you.

What a concept! Excited about Monday!

Have a blessed day and remember “All things are possible with God”

 

 

 

How To Have Happy Employee’s

Business managers must look for ways to be a blessing everyday. Greet those below you in a happy way and let them understand that, yes, you have a business to run but you are concerned for their welfare. Doing this will help you build a productive work force.

It is said that when the employee’s are happy and content in what they do, the productivity they produce excel’s. As Christians Business Owners, we set the standards of our environment. If we treat our employee’s with dignity and respect, the work happily. If we do not, then negativity and chaos runs rampant in the workforce.

Here are some suggestions for a happy work environment:

1. Create an atmosphere at work with meaning, purpose and value.  A valued employee is one who loves to come to work, who loves what they do, and will go to extremes to accomplish the task they are given.

2. Let your employee’s know that they are doing a good job.  Positive affirmations are always a plus to employee’s. Everyone likes hearing that they are appreciated for the work they do.  Thank you, good job, and keep up the good work are what makes an employee thrive to do all you ask of them.

3. Encourage employee’s to utilize their talents. Great idea’s come from many different avenues. You never know when one of your employee’s will have the next “big idea” unless you are asking them, including them, or listening to what the say. Always make time to listen. If it is not an idea you want to go with or a direction you want to go, you simply let them know how much you appreciate their input and let them know you will consider it.

4. Make the work environment a place of comfort and appeal. When your employee’s are happy, you are happy. Maybe you can provide some music, lightly in the background or allow them to listen to an online station. Maybe it is just making sure they have a good desk and chair. Or maybe it is small creature comforts like personal pictures on their desk. If they believe you care about them, this makes for a good work environment.

One of the things I do, I make sure I know about their families. I ask my employee’s how the family is, husband/wife, kids etc… and I make sure I ask about the employee as well. If an employee is having a hard time at home, chances are it will transfer to work. Once the door is open for negativity it becomes contagious.

If you know what frame of mind your employee’s are in, you can counter act any negative flow.  If you own a large company with many employee’s then your office manager, or assistants should be sharing in the duties of speaking to  employee’s daily.

I also want to say this, don’t be a doormat business owner that people will take advantage of because of your kindness. Be a strong leader, be Christian, and be the voice that they need. Employee’s need a strong leader, who can lead with a firm hand and the gentleness of God.

In Colossians 1:10 the Word of God tells us this:

I love people and I want them to be happy with me, but I don’t allow them to control me. I am led by the Holy Spirit.

Be a strong Christian spiritual leader and your business will prosper with the help of happy employee’s.

Do Diligence

The Lord tells us

Proverbs 10:4 – He becomes poor who works with a slack and idle hand, but the hand of the diligent makes rich.

Proverbs 12:24The hand of the diligent will rule, but the slothful will be put to forced labor.

In today’s world, everyone seems to be seeking something for nothing, or they are expecting everyone else to do it for them. That is not what God has intended for us.

You should be the one setting the example for your employee’s, your family, and your friends. Why are you expecting everyone else to do the work, just so you can reap the rewards.  Your do diligence is noticed. Your laziness is noticed. One can bring you great rewards, the other will bring you poverty.

It is time to step up and be the person God intended you to be. A leader!!

You punish your children for disobedience, yet your behavior is where they learned it from.

You reprimand your employee’s, yet they have learned the behavior from you.

Take a look at yourself in the mirror and see what others see. What kind of changes need to be made in your life to reflect the actions you want from others.

Do Diligence! The art of practicing what you preach!
