... of standing firm on business ethics, this hit hard after 2 years of losing employment in another position due to the downturn of the economy in 2008.
Having a growing family to provide for I took the “fake it” till you “make it” route and jumped into the entrepreneur world.
I did just about anything to make a dollar from cleaning offices, cutting down trees, building fences, to moving furniture and trying to flip things online. Finally focusing all our energy into pest control, thinking I was finally going to make some headway, but to no avail. We still went through one poor business decision after another. Hiring helpers not employees or buying better work vehicles, trying to market and advertise not knowing the difference between them. All this while being a follower of Christ, exploring the meaning of my life. All the time blood sweat and tears that was starting to add up and burn us out. I was open to some new vision. We came upon the Benham brothers online and seeing the mission… seeing the purpose.. seeing the hope…that I could bring to the market place. I finally got a different perspective! I quickly signed up for coaching services, It was a big investment for my wife and I but it made sense. We wanted to let God know that we were willing to let go of cash to invest into the business and others lives. After just 3 months ..Im finally getting some time for mind space!! The systems help and guidance by the coaching team is on point, not only do I have someone in my corner emotionally but these coaches give me insight and understanding that I’ve never experienced.. and trust me I’ve read all the books. Though we are still early in this journey, I expect the time and effort invested to be multiplied greatly! If you are a Believer and know there more in business, then I would definitely check out Expert ownership and see the results!"
