So much of what I've planned — doesn't go as planned. Dec 09, 2022

Here's why, and what I've learned.

First, we are at war with the enemy, satan.

Make no mistake, he is real.

Jesus says satan is out to kill, steal and destroy — you and me.

I have a BIG target on my back because my plans are aligned with God's plans.

- I work for God.
- I'm in the army of the...

A Church in a VC Firm? Dec 08, 2022

If you see the church as a place to go, perhaps it doesn’t make sense to be combined with a venture capital firm.

But I see the church as Jesus described it, an Ekklesia, a people empowered to disciple nations.

- Cities are built by entrepreneurs.
- Industries are built by entrepreneurs.

Don't be a Christian Kiss-Butt! Dec 07, 2022

Nothing worse than someone with false humility. A WIMP.

Don't get me wrong, God loves humility and resists the proud.

And so do I!

But Jesus paid the price so we could be more than conquerors.

- Not sheep headed for slaughter.
- If you are a Christ follower, you should be RAM TOUGH.

A ram is an adult...

The Venture Studio inside a venture capital firm. Dec 06, 2022

In 2016, I launched a greenhouse for Kingdom ventures and their maverick founders.

It's the Venture Studio inside a venture capital firm.

There are about 500 venture studios across the globe but less than 5 that cater exclusively to faith driven founders.

I had already been in the "secular" venture...

My Story: I’m a 6x Serial Entrepreneur. Dec 05, 2022

I knew from a young age I wanted to become a business owner.
 

But I had no credentials or mentorship. No one to show me how.

My earthly father was a drunk. My heavenly Father was distant.

I had dreams of a better life but no path to get there.

My friends were from successful families, I was...

What's needed to add 2M, 5M or 10M to your 2023 revenue? Dec 02, 2022

Do you know how many B2B sales meetings a month are needed to add 2M, 5M or 10M to your 2023 revenue?

It's just math.

Example:

- Ideal New Customer: $150K AARPA (average annual revenue per account)

For 10M = 14 new sales meetings a month
For 5M= 7 new sales meetings a month

There's a 90% chance you'll fail Nov 25, 2022

If your venture gets funded, there's a 90% chance you'll fail.

That's the industry statistics.

Secular VC and PE like to bet on the racehorse they think will win, place or show.

And if most fail, that's an acceptable casualty. They make the ROI on 1 in 10.

Think FTX or Theranos. Ha!

Yet they like to...

Are you an entrepreneur who posts regularly on LinkedIn? Nov 24, 2022

Are you an entrepreneur who posts regularly on LinkedIn?

What's the point if almost no-one reads or engages with your content?

Part of every content strategy is developing "SHARED" content on the social media channels where your segments are hanging out.

For business, that's Linkedin.

Allow me to...

It's the ingredients of their growth.

There are two types of Faith Driven Entrepreneurs. Nov 21, 2022

There are two types of Faith Driven Entrepreneurs.

And it's easy to tell them apart.

- Low Faith
- And High Faith

Their actions give them away.

Their actions will always ignore their "said" faith, and mirror their "real" faith.

Remember, an apple tree doesn't produce figs. It always produces fruit of...

Startup Founders are always limited by their capacity to receive. Nov 18, 2022

Startup Founders are always limited by their capacity to receive.

Go big or go home.

If you are a Faith-Driven Entrepreneur, the one who will invest in you and your venture is God.

Though He works through man, He is your source. Always.

- For Funding
- For Revenue/Profit

It doesn't have to be a...
