  • The 19 Rules of Money Management for Christian Entrepreneurs – Rule 18: Rule Your Money

    Profits First method. The reason we need this is that we need to rule money, not have it rule us. We need to tell the money where to go, or it will grow legs and walk away on its own. In a nutshell, when money comes in, you automatically send a percentage to separate accounts you’ve set up for profits, your pay, taxes, and operational expenses. The bible says: "Cast your bread on the surface of the waters, [be diligently active, make thoughtful decisions], for you will find it after many days [be richly rewarded]." (Ecclesiastes 11:1) As a business owner, you must make diligent decisions with your money. The same way I wouldn’t let my 2-year-old son make his own decisions, you shouldn’t let your money come in without a plan behind it. Taking the ideas from the Profits First method, I’m going to share exactly how I divide up money when it comes in. I highly recommend you read the book for yourself so you can build a customized plan based on your revenue and goals. Like I mentioned before, when money comes into my account, I automatically divide it up into operational expenses, taxes, my pay, and profits. Here’s the plan. Operational Expenses (55%) This is the money needed to run the business. This is your rent, employee Pay, vendors, software, utilities, etc. If you can’t run your business with 55% of the revenue coming in, you likely aren’t charging enough, or your costs are too high. You need to make some adjustments. Taxes (10%) A percentage of your money will go to taxes. It’s better to put the money away each month than to be left with a big bill at the end of the year that you’ll have to scramble (or cheat) to pay. Owners pay (30%) I pay myself 30 percent of the money that comes in. What’s the point of owning a business if I’m not going to have money to pay my bills? And if you can’t pay yourself this much, then once again, something is wrong with your pricing or business costs. You must keep your formula the same and instead look at your revenue and expenses and begin to make changes. Don’t sacrifice your pay! Then what’s it all for? Profits (5%) This is my favorite account to watch grow. This money forms the backbone of my company and helps me make purchasing decisions for cool new upgrades I want to make for my business. Money here goes towards the future of my business. #BusinessBibleStudy #ElevateWorkLifeBalance #ChargingtheRightPrice The 19 Rules of Money Management for Christian Entrepreneurs This course will help you develop a better sense of money management in God’s way.

  • I Know My Calling, But I’m Stuck: Part 2 – Fearlessly Attack the Marketplace

    Some people get stuck before pulling the trigger to launch a business. One of my ventures, ‘Launch in 2 Days’, concentrates on launching brands. I’ve started many companies for people, but it’s a small fraction compared to the number of people who have NOT launched yet. We’ll have a discovery call, sometimes they’ll even pay me to consult them on the idea, and then I don’t hear from them again. Fear struck them, and they’re back to their comfortable place. See, I’m the exact opposite; I’m fearless when it comes to launching new growth opportunities, products, campaigns, or brands. I go after it with everything I got. What makes me different from most people that have a dream of starting a business? Faced with the decision to go after the business God has called to start, some retreat back to the “planning board” to rethink and reassess. Some of us press “mission abort” before launching because some clouds appear hundreds of miles away. Some of us don’t start because of fear of money. Yes, it costs money to go after your calling. Some don’t start because they don’t feel worthy. Some of us try reliving failure we’ve already been through in the past when attempting to re-launch the business. I’m over all of that. Been there, done that, and I’m here to write about my triumph. The Bible says: For the Spirit God gave us does not make us timid, but gives us power, love and self-discipline. (2 Timothy 1:7 NIV) How do I personally launch now? I think it’s a combination of a little bit of crazy and a whole lot of courage. Since I’m operating from a place of gifting, being in God’s favor, covered by his grace, the Lord will be victorious. You can’t move forward as an entrepreneur until you learn to face all your fears and operate beyond them. I’m not saying be irresponsible and dive in without counting your logistics. I’m also not ignoring the fact that we all have fears. More importantly, God’s mindset is to mold you into a Godpreneur, relying on him and his word as a lamp that will guide us on our journey. Physically, entrepreneurship might be a solo endeavor, but not apart from God. In fact, it’s the opposite. Like a Rollercoaster ride, business will, for sure, throw at you unpredictable twists and turns with frequent stops along the way; sometimes with regressions. I keep thinking of the story of David and Goliath; here’s a youngster who saw his fellow men cleft in their camp, paralyzed in fear. He’s thinking “God helped me defeat a lion and a bear; so it will be with this colossal man!?” With one rock, the giant went down. Was it the rock that won the contention? No, it was the lack of apprehension to go after his mission. The Bible says: What, then, shall we say in response to these things? If God is for us, who can be against us? Romans 8:31 NIV We all already have overcome fears in our past. Most of us have launched something that’s collapsed. We’ve all experienced impediments, either in a previous business or job. The same God that took you through that made you genuine because the Lord desires to guide us along the next step in our journey. Imagine if all Godpreneurs esteemed God to move forward with our callings! How many more excellent inventions would we beget? Many unique products/services would be offered by people operating out of their gifting and calling, not adhered to something they weren’t born to do. I have 3 questions for you: What business is it that you know God is calling you to do today? What’s keeping you from moving forward? Will you allow us Godpreneurs as a community to strengthen you by praying for you? We want to help guide you to get beyond any fears that are holding you back from launching.

  • Define your Vision for Systems and Processes

    Vision isn’t just about where you see yourself or your company in 3 days, 3 months, 3 years, or 3 decades. Sure, we’ve all done the ‘vision board’ where we put the picture of our future home and car.  I even had a jet on my vision board (which I still want). But have you checked your vision on the system and processes that run your well-oiled machine?  Does your vision for operating your business look like an Ikea one-sheeter teaching you to build a cabinet, or does it look like the blueprint of a Boing 747? Squeaky clean and complicated systems and processes are what keep the profits coming in. Only profits will allow you to create more profit, more jobs and more time for yourself. Your diets need to be complex. Your workouts need to be complex. Your relationships need to be complex. Your business systems and processes need to be complex. Who will manage these complex systems if you can’t?  Well, that’s why you see a dietitian, hire a workout coach and choose a church to belong to.  This helps establish a complex system for delivering results. As for business, you either hire a business consultant to help you build this system and process, or your craft it yourself. You then find the right person(s) to micro-manage your system. Leadership abilities are in the eye of the beholder. Great leaders to some are poor leaders to others. Building a business around systems and processes that produce profit can’t be argued against. Either you have profits, or you don’t. Focus on your vision of systems and processes for your business.
