In my company Creative Complex, we’re united to help entrepreneurs find their God-given identity…what they were born to do! We do this by, first, making it very clear that to have a calling on your life, there must be a ‘caller’. We’re not ashamed to talk about Jesus and share our testimonies of how the way our business USED TO BE, to how it is now. In fact, for us to do the best possible work for our clients, we MUST tap into the spirit of our clients.
We’re not crazy….OK, maybe we are! We’re nuts about our clients understanding that in order to create a great brand, we must get to the core of why the company and entrepreneur exist! Every person on my team, from my executive assistant to my graphic designer overseas, knows the plans we have as a company to reach over 10,000 entrepreneurs with our message.
THIS IS NOT A PLUG FOR MY COMPANY.
I tell you this to say that we are all united under one message and one cause: spread our message.
When we entrepreneurs can find a message and a cause, we have the opportunity to unite people in our cause and create a movement.
Some of us think that people are motivated by money. We think that people are moved by bonuses, perks, or cool products to sell.
And if we are motivated by these things ourselves, our workforce will be too.
But God left a blueprint for uniting a workforce and creating a movement.
In the second chapter of the book of Acts, God sends down the holy spirit into all the believers, uniting them under ONE CAUSE: Jesus, and spreading that love.
The uniting work of the Spirit of God through the preaching of the gospel to the nations, in turn, brought about the knitting together of a new community of believers. Those who believed the gospel were all together and had everything in common. These new converts sat at the feet of those who had been taught by Jesus (Acts 2:40-47).
The secret to a united workforce is that everyone must be preaching the same message. What’s your company’s message? Usually this is called your mission, vision or purpose statements. All together, these form the key message you’re putting out.
In my business, we’ve been able to tie our message into the same message of the gospel! Heck, I feel like I’m killing two birds with one stone: I’m giving them a brand AND spreading the gospel! When people do business with me, I want them to feel like they are doing business with Jesus, with a company that brings light and love. I want my clients to have purpose!
There is only ONE SPIRIT. The closer we can tie our company mission to this one spirit, the closer we come to the one-ness we Godpreneurs are seeking in our lives.
Godpreneur Rule #37: we seek for our businesses to be one spirit with God, and go out and spread that message to the world.
