How to choose the right business goals

No successful business operates without a comprehensive list of goals that they wish to achieve each year.

Business Success

Just like any other entrepreneur out there, Christian businessmen must work just as hard as everyone else in order to succeed. Yes, you trust God fully and seek His guidance in every step of the way. But God does require that you work diligently with passion and commitment. Being a Christian does not assure instant business success nor is it a license to be lazy and complacent. You will not achieve instant victory, not if you don’t work hard. But…

The kingdom entrepreneur

In 2014, McDonalds wanted to promote their breakfast menu in the Philippines, the country that ranks 5th in the world for the worst traffic and the worst morning commute.

taking credit
