We're so glad that you are here! Everything we are doing here exists to honor God and to provide value to you - a Christian woman who has a God-given entrepreneurial calling.
With God at our center and as our CEO, we facilitate an environment of support and education. In addition to highlighting Christ-centered entrepreneurs and their expertise on our blog, we also facilitate community in our Facebook Group and through BB Groups (online small groups for Christian female entrepreneurs).
We have several core beliefs that have shaped what we do and how we grow as a community and a business:
Just like God calls people to ministry, He also calls some to the marketplace. We know that we are called to the marketplace because God has instilled within us a fire for entrepreneurialism and a drive to create a better life for ourselves, our families and those around us. Being an entrepreneur is both an act of obedience and of worship.
Entrepreneurship can be a lonely experience - especially as online entrepreneurs because of the nature of sitting behind a computer screen. However, loneliness is neither God's design nor intent for us. God designed us for community. “For if either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” [Ecclesiastes 4:10]
Just like moms need mom friends, entrepreneurs need entrepreneur friends. Without the support of other Christian women that understand business, who is going to understand everything we go through as an entrepreneur?! We need to each other to truly thrive in all the areas that God has called us.
He has called us to lift each other up, to highlight each other’s strengths and to work together as a body. Together we are stronger. "Iron sharpens iron, and one man sharpens another." [Proverbs 27:17] Together we are capable of more. "Two are better than one, because they have a good reward for their toil." [Ecclesiastes 4:9]
"And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." [Hebrews 10:24-25]
When you first start a business, there is no way of knowing exactly what steps God has laid out for you to take. So often we step into business with a tunnel vision focus on making money, to soon discover that God's priority is capturing our heart and attention. With His guidance, all things are possible. "And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose." [Romans 8:28] With God at the center of our entrepreneurial walk, we can confidently step in obedience towards fulfilling His calling.
