Definition: FREEDOM– the power or right to act, think or speak without restraint or hindrance. Sometimes I come across people who like the idea of being an entrepreneur but don’t know the amount of work that goes with it. A few days ago I wrote a post about Freedom as an Entrepreneur, What does that mean for a Christian Entrepreneur? Being free in business is more than making money and spending time the way you want or see fit, it’s even more than spending time with family or even your favorite hobbies. I’ve learned walking this out as an entrepreneur passionate about business is that I truly get to walk out my destiny, my passion and thrive in the gifts God has given me.
I’ve learned that even while I was in business and before I discovered what it truly meant to be free, I would try my best to be at every business event, every networking group, trying to take any and every class that would be business related to help my business be successful. What I found, Even though I had the time and freedom to do what I wanted, I wasn’t spending the time needed for my children, the time needed for self-care and it eventually hurt my marriage.
Walking in freedom as an entrepreneur is walking out the plans and the purposes God has for you. You don’t have to be at EVERY business event, EVERY networking event, try to take classes, you do whatever God is calling you to do… DO THAT! God has a plan for you, He wants you to be successful MORE than you do. His word says in Jeremiah 29:11, is that He has a plan for you, He wants to prosper you.
