However, entrepreneurship can become detrimental to one’s spiritual life if it becomes an idol or if the entrepreneur is serving Mammon rather than God (Luke 16:13). Some entrepreneurs become so immersed in work that they neglect family, friends, their health, and the Lord. When anything takes our total focus for an extended period of time, it can shift our lives out of balance. So Christian entrepreneurs must work to keep priorities straight and remember that a business with God’s blessing will fare better than one without it. The Lord will not tolerate our idols, so a new business owner must work to keep success from becoming more important than anything else.
A successful entrepreneur serves others, often at great risk, difficulty, and cost. Profits are a sign that the entrepreneur has successfully served others, but the profits only come after the endeavor. Along the way the entrepreneur may risk income, financial safety for himself and his family, his retirement, his home, and possibly the same of friends and family.

One of the most important things in any endeavor is knowing where to start. Then once you start, how do you get from point A to point B, then point B to point C, then point C to point D, and then…. you see what we’re getting at? TheChristianDude.com teaches you how to get from point A to point Z! We do not simply teach you how to get there however, we also give you the resources you need to attain crazy prosperity, with a support network on top of it.

Strive Masiyiwa is a mobile telecoms giant and Zimbabwe’s richest man. He is the founder of Econet Wireless, a company that provides telecommunication services to more than 15 countries on and beyond the African continent. His initial attempts to begin in entrepreneurship were met with hostility from his government, which had a monopoly on communications services at the time. Eventually the government conceded, and demand for his product exploded. Masiyiwa told Forbes magazine that praying hard and giving back are two key elements to his entrepreneurial strategies. To complement this, he also co-runs a Christian charity that has sponsored education, food, and healthcare for more than 28,000 Zimbabwean orphans.
In previous posts, I laid the Biblical foundation for why I believe God does call us to our vocations. In January, I will be writing a series of posts that delve much deeper into this notion of calling and explore the various callings that Paul teaches us about in the Bible – including our vocational calling. I think it will bring more clarity to this topic, and I look forward to your thoughts and feedback on it.

Regardless of the success and profitability of a particular idea, the entrepreneur must make good on his commitments and do what it takes to pay off any debts that he may have incurred while pursuing his vision. This financial “sword of Domacles” motivates the entrepreneur to work strategically to best serve people in the market  and make his enterprise a success.
God created work before the Fall. It is a good thing and is meant to provide fulfillment and as a means to glorify the Lord. So why do so many young people have a goal of avoiding work at all costs? Having a Biblical view of work is crucial for young people so they grow up to love hard work and the satisfaction that accompanies labor.  We have a passion to instill God’s perspective on work to the next generation!
I also believe that Christian entrepreneurs who are not working in the “church” space should think more ministerially. If you’re successful in business, if you lead people, if you start things, if you earn money, if you influence your community or your culture in the business world, then you ought to be seeking ways to serve other people and to share your faith with people in loving ways.
To work as a consultant, you must purchase one of their start-up kits, priced at $395, $595, or $795. There is a monthly fee for the website, but it is free for the first three to six months, depending on the kit you choose to buy. Premier Designs offers a credit line to their consultants, meaning that the consultants can charge the products to an account and pay for it later when they begin to earn money. While you are not required to have an inventory of jewelry, it can be helpful to sell more at home shows.

The warnings of succumbing to the love of money are dire in the Bible.  The rich young ruler who claimed to be perfect in following the commandments was turned away by Christ because he loved his possessions more than his Creator.  There were none that contradicted the young man’s claim so we can assume he was probably a very good man, but it takes more.
It just occurred to me on this, my 100th post, that I don’t think I’ve ever really answered the question, “What is a Christian Entrepreneur?” That seems pretty silly of me since it is the name of the blog.  It’s a simple enough question that would seem self explanatory at first glance, but the more you really stop to think about it the deeper and more complex the answer becomes.

All those products above and over 3,000 more like them are in our members area, for you to use and learn from, and 90% of them have what are called “rights”, meaning you can resell those products for 100% profit!!! Some products even allow you to change the content or code, and then claim yourself as the original author or creator! No, it’s not illegal… it’s encouraged, because it’s simply a book that has “PLR” rights. As in Private Label Rights, meaning you can do whatever you want with the product.
The idea of a strict separation between sacred and secular is not a biblical one. Neither is the separation between “clergy” and “laity.” When you follow Jesus, you’re part of his kingdom in every realm of your life, so living out a Christian ethic and pursuing excellence and success in the marketplace by serving the needs of others and becoming generous is one way of positively impacting the world and drawing others to an understanding of God’s love for them. So let’s get past the stigma, break through our fears, and do this well!
