“I’m convinced that about half of what separates the successful entrepreneurs from the non-successful ones is pure perseverance.”– Steve Jobs
Do you ever feel like the odds of your business success are truly stacked against you? Does it sometimes seem like enduring the rise and fall of opportunities and obstacles you face isn’t worth the pursuit of entrepreneurship? Do you ever think to yourself, “It just feels too hard.”?
If you’ve ever felt that way or had those thoughts, here is what I can tell you for sure, you are not alone! Entrepreneurship is incredibly rewarding, but (despite the “overnight success” stories you hear) its hard work. It requires mental perseverance. It requires emotional stability. It requires great faith.
Succeeding as an entrepreneur is just as much about your mental, emotional, and spiritual strength as it is about your mission, market, and marketing – if not more. And without the requisite mental, emotional, and spiritual strength YOU WILL QUIT.
So how do you find the strength to never give up? How do you find the will to do what is right when you feel wrong? How do you hold fast to perspective when it seems to be slipping away?
Introducing the “Fun. Business. Faith.” iTunes Podcast
I believe there is no greater intangible asset that we can develop as entrepreneurs than mental, emotional, and spiritual stability (or what I’m calling MESS). Without it you are like chalk on the sidewalk – washed away with one downpour. But if you train yourself (much like a runner trains for a marathon) to develop MESS, you’ll never be a “mess”.
And to help you achieve the MESS you’re after, I’ve created the “FUN. BUSINESS. FAITH.” iTunes Podcast. This podcast is designed to help entrepreneurs recognize their God-given emotional, mental, and spiritual power necessary for peak performance and lasting success.
Every week (on Monday), I’ll be bringing you one powerful Bible-based strategy for becoming a more effective and empowered entrepreneur. You can listen to or watch his podcast below, or you can click here to subscribe to the podcast in iTunes, so you never miss a single episode.
In our very first episode this week, I cover the founding principle upon which all other principles in the life of the podcast will be built. I also share a few important things about how the relationship between faith and business is not only natural and worthy, but completely transformational to your life and business too. You’ll also learn exactly what you can expect to get out of this podcast from week to week (since this initial episode is a bit different than the norm).
This podcast is created directly from my heart to yours. It’s created for the spirit of every entrepreneur with a dream in their heart, and a call on their life to serve God while serving others through business.
If you’re ready to become equipped for lasting success as an entrepreneur, you don’t want to miss this podcast – this podcast is for YOU!
