Entrepreneurial faith is a source of inspiration, direction, insight, and solutions. It helps you stay on course when others oppose you. It encourages you when you are about to lose hope; it gives you strength when you have run out of your own. Most importantly, it reassures you that God is able to do everything but fail, and that you are not alone and your destiny has not been changed.
As an entrepreneur of faith, I invest to reap the highest return. And since this is entrepreneurship to help meet others’ needs, the return is not always immediately indicated by the bottom line. The return is realized in the spiritual realm: in the lives of people that you invest in. I believe that entrepreneurs of faith are not only productive, they are reproductive. When you invest in others, the fruit of your labor will be seen for generations to come.
I would like to tell you that everyone that you invest in receives it well and that no one will mistake your kindness for weakness. However, if I did this, I would be misleading you. There will be instances where individuals will try to take advantage of you and misuse your goodwill. The important thing to remember, when this happens, is that your return on your investment (ROI) is not contingent on their inability to receive your goodwill. Your ROI is solely dependent on your faithfulness.
Entrepreneurs of faith launch initiatives that align with their vision, create opportunities that meet real needs, and above all, inspire others to reach their next level of greatness by emulating the strength, character, and faith shown to them.
