DREAM | Preparation is Evidence of Faith

DREAM | Preparation is Evidence of Faith

I’m pretty sure I heard Pastor Lester at Authentic Life Church talk about this first, but I’ve had various affirmations on this since. Preparation is the evidence of faith.

I had such a great meeting with our new accountant as we set up a meeting to talk about getting some business things in order. From most people that I talk to, they spend the first year of their business making all the mistakes and I honestly did the exact same thing. Personally, I dragged my feet on getting business in order because I thought to myself “will anyone even care?” “Will I even be able to make money from the things I want to do?” And the answer eventually was yes.

So this year is all about back-tracking and making certain that all my ducks are in a row. The ducks were all over the place when I went to do my taxes this year and so I certainly want to improve my business acumen by about 100%. I’m still not raking in the bucks, believe me, but I am doing business and therefore need to put the right things in place to grow and to protect myself as I grow.

WRITE | Who You Are Outside of What You Do

WRITE | Who You Are Outside of What You Do

We don’t even think about it. We walk into events, meetings, corporate settings and when asked who we are, we reply with “I am so and so and I am the [insert job title] at [insert company.]” Sometimes people are even impressed by our response and if you are anything like me they think somehow your job is a lot more glamorous than it really it is.  But lately, I am a lot more interested in who people are and what they were put on this Earth to do.

See my job title holds no real weight in what honestly really matters to me. It’s a job and it has great parts, not so great parts, and I will be happiest when I can walk away from it with great skills, professional experience and truly begin walking in purpose full time. Really my job is a needy mistress, distracting me from the real task at hand.
