S3-E15- 7 Key Lessons from Season 3 of the Women Faith + Business Podcast

We have discussed many times how entrepreneurship is an ongoing journey of highs and lows, joy and frustration, excitement and sadness, etc. If you have experienced the best of emotions it is a given that you have experienced the opposite of them as well along the journey. However, those that continue on the journey tend never to regret any parts of the journey. Most of us learn more about and grow our relationship with God during the journey and almost all of us found a way to incorporate our faith into our business. We have shared and overcome a multitude of lessons along the way. I have compiled some of the lessons we discussed this season to share with you on this episode of the Women faith and Business Podcast.

In this episode you will hear:

S3-E12- Having the Courage to step into who God called you to be and who He called you to serve with Monique Head

So many of us are afraid to be obedient to the Holy Spirit which causes us to avoid and/or delay what God has in store for us. We justify the action or nonaction of the disobedience by telling ourselves and others that God and/or our faith has no place in the marketplace. This mentality hinders our growth and success. Monique talks about how your belief can manifest the high points of your business and how God uses anybody to do His work. The only requirement from you is obedience and courage.

In this episode you will hear:

S3-E10- Following God’s Calling with Kim Stewart

OBEDIENCE – compliance with an order, request, or law or submission to another’s authority.

Before reading that definition I am sure that most of us would define obedience in a similar manner; however, after reading the definition we may find a sense of clarity on its meaning. Each of us hears God differently; however, all of us understand what He is saying to us individually. Sometimes we find confusion in what God is telling us; we must realize the confusion comes in on our end because we are operating out of fear most times. God speaks to us very clearly we just may not be ready to receive what He is saying or do what He is asking us to do. Kim Stewart shares with us the importance of following God’s calling.

In this episode you will hear:

• How she felt called to stay home and focus on the family for a season

• How she decided to start her own business and she was called to serve Christian authors

• How she felt responsible as a Christian to glorify God in everything that she does

• How the high of her business is all about the success of her clients and when God brings the right clients to her

• How the lows included struggling to make a commitment based on who God called her to serve and also struggling with comparison

• How following Jesus is an everyday decision

• Trust God and not the business gurus
