Before I created the S.O.U.L. Plan. Before I wrote my first book. Before I started coaching business owners, recorded my first podcast or launched my first business.
...I was a determined corporate finance officer.
...And I was driven by a desire to maximize three things in my life: Money. Power. Recognition.
That's why I was scared to death of obeying the still small voice telling me "pour your love into your husband and home." Instead of listening, I held on for dear life to what I viewed as the source of my success and prosperity....my career.
After I left my high-powered corporate career, I was broken.
Eventually I started thinking, it's time to "take the leap" back into the world of business, and this time, as "my own boss."
But my deepest fear surfaced…
…that perhaps my desire to build a profitable business (and for money, power and recognition which by the way was still alive and well), wasn’t totally aligned with God’s will.
Have you ever had that thought?
As a Jesus Girl who desired to be the best I could be and to create wealth in the process, my deepest fear was that my previous missteps were an indicator my ambition didn't properly line up with God's will for my life.
In the aftermath of my missteps, I struggled to answer these questions. But I finally did. And I learned the following in the process. (If you're a Jesus Girl...or Guy...I believe it applies to you too):
"Building a profitable, sustainable business or a career you love is connected to you first becoming a better person," and...
Today, I get to do what I love!
I'm the Managing Partner of a public accounting firm...but moreover...
...I'm a business coach who helps Christians in business say "bye-bye" to that uncomfortable tension associated with thinking your desire for money, power and recognition might conflict with your desire to serve God.
I created a framework that'll help you find the ALIGNMENT you're looking for...
...so you can confidently pursue your profitable business venture and make more, save more and give more money than you thought possible to the glory of God!
I've helped other highly-motivated Christian business owners tap into the POWER of ALIGNMENT with a HIGHER PURPOSE for business...
...and experience great success from having an enlightened self-awareness of why business matters...beyond the obvious purpose of making profits. And I can help you, too!
I teach what I know.
I teach how to start and build your business for reasons that won't distract from your relationship with God, but that'll establish its everlasting purpose because of it.
I teach keys for aligning two of your most important desires: your desire for money, power and recognition, and your desire to fulfill God's purpose for your life and business.
I teach the principles and standards of generous leadership.
I also teach what I’ve learned during my high-powered corporate finance career, as leader of a CPA firm and a business owner.
I teach how to analyze your company's value chain so you can design, implement and monitor systems that generate cash-flow and profits.
Social entrepreneurs and I hold some beliefs in common. But you don't have to build a social enterprise to align your desire for business success with your desire to fulfill higher purposes for business.
