It takes Faith to be an exceptional entrepreneur

The first time I inadvertently explored the intersection between entrepreneurship and Faith was when I had to choose between my Christian-biblical principles and losing a business opportunity.

Sharing God's Story

399I believe in God, the Creator. I believe in His promise of an age to come where everything is made right. Fixed. Repaired. Like new. No more tears. No more pain. No evil.
