#17 Business Basics – What is a Business?

Join us a we share our 5 day Facebook Live Series called Business Basics.  We’ve recently launched a new workshop in our membership called Business Basics and we wanted to bless all the ladies out there who are thinking about starting a business.

God put it on our Founders heart to encourage His daughters in business, so we want to do just that.  Some of you ladies out their are thinking about starting a business and you have big dreams that God has given you.  These are some steps to help get you started.

Day 1 – Business Basics – What is a Business?

Points in the podcast:

  • God needs women in the market place, He needs us to be making money and shinning our light to the world through business.
  • He needs us to be confident in ourselves, to trust ourselves and step out in faith.
  • What is a business? A business is a solution to a problem that people are willing to pay for. Important part in that sentence is what people are willing to pay for.
  • You can’t run a business without money.
  • Money is a big factor to any successful business.

Let’s see how God looks at this.

Matthew 25:14-30

14 “Again, it will be like a man going on a journey, who called his servants and entrusted his wealth to them. 15 To one he gave five bags of gold, to another two bags, and to another one bag,[a] each according to his ability. Then he went on his journey. 16 The man who had received five bags of gold went at once and put his money to work and gained five bags more. 17 So also, the one with two bags of gold gained two more. 18 But the man who had received one bag went off, dug a hole in the ground and hid his master’s money.

19 “After a long time the master of those servants returned and settled accounts with them. 20 The man who had received five bags of gold brought the other five. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with five bags of gold. See, I have gained five more.’

21 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

22 “The man with two bags of gold also came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘you entrusted me with two bags of gold; see, I have gained two more.’

23 “His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant! You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’

24 “Then the man who had received one bag of gold came. ‘Master,’ he said, ‘I knew that you are a hard man, harvesting where you have not sown and gathering where you have not scattered seed. 25 So I was afraid and went out and hid your gold in the ground. See, here is what belongs to you.’

26 “His master replied, ‘You wicked, lazy servant! So you knew that I harvest where I have not sown and gather where I have not scattered seed? 27 Well then, you should have put my money on deposit with the bankers, so that when I returned I would have received it back with interest.

28 “‘So take the bag of gold from him and give it to the one who has ten bags.29 For whoever has will be given more, and they will have an abundance. Whoever does not have, even what they have will be taken from them. 30 And throw that worthless servant outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth.’

You homework for this week is to sit down with God and start asking Him to download to you some ideas to help solve peoples problems.
