Owning a business is nothing easy. We knew this when we signed up for the task. However, the one thing that has kept me going day in and day out is God. The strength I get from God everyday makes me feel renewed. Sounds great, right? Well, it isn’t an easy thing. Honestly, it’s something that I work on everyday.
Now that it is 2019 people seem to think all the good ideas are taken. Did you know that nearly 14% of working age Americans are starting or are currently running a new business (GEM, 2019). I believe with only 14% of Americans willing to start a business, the opportunities are endless. However, without Christ centered in business plan; how are you going to gain guidance when times are tough?
The closer we move God into our goals the more motivated, confident, and rested we feel. Do you believe God has given you a purpose, but nothing is going right? Is everything going right and you just feel overwhelmed? – Regardless of why you are here, these Bible verses will hopefully motivate you, like they do to me.
