Then What?

My Story...


My Story...

I was:

  • A Graduate of one of the best grad schools.

  • Smart – One of the top in my class.

  • Starting at the most prestigious firm on Bay Street.

  • Passionate & unstoppable.


My Story...

I was:

Exactly what a B-School would call ready for success!


My Story...

I managed to:

  • Be so full of myself, that nobody would work with me.

  • Make the firm’s largest client mad at us.

  • Produce the worst forecast of the economy on the streetand embarrass the firm!


My Story...

I managed to:

Essentially, be one really small step from being fired!


My Story...

I managed to:

Get scared and desperate...


My Story...

But, I managed to:

Listen to the 700 Club and others and finally listen to THE HOLY SPIRIT and rededicate my life to JESUS.


My Story...

But, I managed to:

Try to live like I really meant to be a Christian.


My Story...

Did life change over night???

No, but it stabilized


My Story...

Because of being humbled, We, GOD and i, then managed to produce the best forecast.

Slowly, people changed their attitude ( really a reaction to my ‘tude ) to me.


My Story...

Because of being humbled, because of GOD, I was offered a job as Chief Economist with Merrill Lynch Canada at 28 years old. At that time it was unheard of!!!


My Story...

Threeyears after almost being fired by one firm, GOD managed to arrange for me to be made the second youngest Director on Bay Street, because i was ranked #1 by the clients.


My Story...

As long as i kept GOD first, HE prospered me!

In fact, HE prospered me so much that i was ranked #1, or #2 by the largest clients for over 10 years.

Thank YOU PAPA!


My Story...

I will never forget what John Arnott said when commenting on the Todd Bentley issue. He said:

Whatever you do, get your heart healed!


How do I scale The Business Mountain?

Simple!

  • Keep GOD First.

  • Live by rules like La Red is teaching.


How do I scale The Business Mountain?

Simple!

One thing i have noticed is that if you live by GOD’S Rules you may get called names at first, but it will not be long before people admire you, however grudgingly.


How do I scale The Business Mountain?

Simple!

The most effective witness that I know of, is to live righteously and be prospered by GOD.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

An Oxymoron??


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

It is unworldly!!


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

Johnny Enlow said something that resonated in my heart on Thursday night. He said that the mountains are twisted and the way we do things, the model, is broken!


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

Is it not a business that is run for it’s Customers and it’s Employees?


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

Is it not a business that is run at the highest levels of integrity and legality!


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

Is it not a business that gives into GOD’S Kingdom ( Tithes off say pre-tax earnings )?


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

Is it not what La Red are saying, an enterprise run on the Wisdom of Proverbs and GOD’S Word.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

Should it not be a meritocracy and yet a Culture of Honour too?


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

One morning PAPA gave me this idea:

Essentially, there is a mapping of the apostolic government of the church onto my business.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

One morning PAPA gave me this idea:

Read Danny Silk’s book, “Culture of Honor”


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

One morning PAPA gave me this idea:

I had lunch a while ago with a businessman that backed up this... Things go wrong when the government of the firm is wrong.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

One morning PAPA gave me this idea:

Apostle=Chairman=Vision Person.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

One morning PAPA gave me this idea:

Teacher=COO=get it done person.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

One morning PAPA gave me this idea:

Pastor=managers & HR=tenders of people.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

One morning PAPA gave me this idea:

Prophets=Outside Board Members=Seers


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

Like the church when the apostle is not doing his job, or others are meddling in each others roles, the thing will fail.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

How many of us let GOD into our daily lives, but not into our businesses. I did that!

How much better to let THE HOLY SPIRIT guide there too.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

I can tell you that GOD is more than willing to mess with your business life too. HE has given me so much help. I think I’m going to take on the role of president and make JEHOVAH Chairman.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

GOD has taught me:

  • Math and behavioural economics that is in no textbook, or working paper, that i know of.

  • How to design my computer network (yup that too).


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

GOD has taught me:

  • How to structure my company and what kind of people to hireto make a Culture of Honour.

  • How to recognize the people that HE sent.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

GOD has taught me:

Oh do you have days to hear it all!!!


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

If we all learn to dedicate our businesses to GOD, then I think we will see GOD prospering our businesses.


Kingdom Business...

What, oh what, is a Kingdom Business?

If you want The Witness to the world of business, show them all of the above and prosperity to boot. They will be scratching their heads in awe!
