Entrepreneurship is as much a process as it is a set of traits. However, certain traits are essential to success and play an important role in how the entrepreneurial process unfolds. These traits–faith, perseverance, sacrifice, and service–are integral characteristics of the Christian as well. God admires them and encourages us to admire them, too.
The fact is, most marketers do things from the proven, tried and true methods that have been working for years. Those methods work today, they’ll work tomorrow, and they will continue to work for years to come, even as they continue to be tweaked over time. In truth, no matter what it is an Internet marketer is selling or promoting, they are all using the same marketing approaches! If something does “break the mold”, you will be sure to learn about it in our members area to boot.
Faith can serve as a positive influence in everything we do. For those with dreams of entrepreneurship, strong belief can encourage ethical business decision making, philanthropy, and a sense of purpose. King University is pleased to celebrate famous individuals who successfully integrated their Christian beliefs with their worldly professional goals.
Good post, Brad. I know it was written a while back, but I just came across it. To me, a Christian entrepreneur is one who runs their business to bring honor to God. It may be in the way they deal with customers, what they do with their money, offering quality products, etc. Everything they do, they do to the best of their ability, as it says in Colossians 3:23, “And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord aned not to men.”
Companies like Sears, Amazon, eBay, Esprit Clothing Company, Cabela’s, and hundreds more pay you money to market their products for them online. Every sale you make for them, they compensate you… usually with commissions ranging from 10% to 25%. Those are companies you can represent as an affiliate, through your affiliate marketing campaigns and running a Christian home business.
