When God calls you to start a business.

As a believer, when God calls you to start a business, it’s going to be around His resources and timing — not yours. Just accept that.

Everything you need to succeed is already inside you.
Then why do 90% of new entrepreneurs fail?

Because of this …

- We convince ourselves that if it’s going to be, it’s up to me.
- Hold my beer God, I’ve got this.
- We take charge.
- We get in the driver’s seat and plan around our natural resources.

>> Full Stop.

He will always multiply what you … Already Have.

Faith — The path God takes you on will require you to trust Him 100% for everything. Say goodbye to your comfort zone. You’ll have to develop the faith to rely on His resources, not yours. If everything you have is His, don’t be surprised when He asks you to invest it. All. Everything. It’s a sacrifice to Him.

Ability to Learn — You will need to learn a plethora of new things critical to your success. This can be overwhelming. Yup. But make no mistake, if you don’t learn them — you will fail.

You can go from being a promise-taker who walks by faith …

No weapon formed against me shall prosper.
I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.
All things are possible through Christ.

… to a promise-faker who walks by sight.

Time to put on your Big-Boy Pants.

Starting a business is a walk by faith, not sight.
Learn what you don’t know, or fail.

You already have some faith … rely on God to grow it.
You already have the ability to learn … rely on God to help you learn it.

Starting a business with God is a calling.
God chooses the nobodies, the Gideons of this world, to do His work.

You can do this … everything you need is already inside you!
