I started my Instagram account @dailygodpreneur as a way to remember all of the little things that God teaches me about entrepreneurship.
There are tons of nuggets of wisdom and I have a strange funny feeling I’ll never be done penning all the knowledge for as long as I keep seeking it.
I need all of this wisdom because, quite frankly, entrepreneurship is TOUGH WORK! If you’ve owned a business for 1 day, you know exactly what I’m talking about.
The way I see it, by seeking out wisdom and adapting the principles I learn from the bible, I’m putting on a bullet proof vest. Each month, that vest is able to get stronger and resist bigger bullets.
Godpreneurs will succeed by attending to the many seemingly small principles for life’s success offered by God.
The bible says
My child, listen to what I say, and treasure my commands. Tune your ears to wisdom, and concentrate on understanding. Cry out for insight, and ask for understanding. Search for them as you would for silver; seek them like hidden treasures. Then you will understand what it means to fear the Lord , and you will gain knowledge of God.
Proverbs 2:1-5 NLT
These principles will be like the bulletproof vest making it impervious to being overpowered by outside forces.
A foolish person relies on individual gifts and personal strength; however, this is the epitome of weakness, because there is no unity of purpose supporting his efforts. Therefore, he stands alone. Godpreneurs find their strength by reinforcing their bulletproof vests.
Godpreneur Rule: Don’t look merely to your natural gifts, but focus your energy on marshaling all available resources.
