TOPIC: DOING BUSINESS
For every successful businessman, there are at least 10,000 bleached skeletons of those who have failed. It’s a very sad commentary on capitalism, but that is capitalism and real capitalism, not crony capitalism. (Robert Kuok, in his recently released memoir.)
While running a business can be very exciting and exhilarating, it can be rather overwhelming for those who are unprepared for the challenges.
While Doing Business is primarily to prepare potential entrepreneurs spiritually and mentally to start, operate and plan a business, it is relevant even if you’re looking for diversification, expansion or perhaps withdrawing.
Contents are based on books ‘Doing God’s Business’ (R. Paul Stevens) and ‘Secrets of the Kingdom Economy’ (Paul L. Cuny), supplemented by real life, practical personal experiences.
Starting – God & Business. Is business a calling? Responsibility & anointing. Marketplace mission.
Operating – We own nothing. Operating in the marketplace. Cultivating Integrity. Let your life speaks – self leadership.
Planning – Vision, Plan, Strategy, Resources.
