Build and Fight Simultaneously. Dec 23, 2022

If you are going to build an iconic venture, you'll have to learn how to build and fight simultaneously. I love this story ... The story of Nehemiah.

He saw a problem. The wall of Jerusalem was compromised. In a state of disrepair.

He saw a solution. He had an irrational desire to see it...

When the Entrepreneurial Mountain Gets Foggy. Dec 22, 2022

We all get to a place as entrepreneurs where the path up the entrepreneurial mountain gets foggy.

We get to a place where we get a bit lost, unsure about the path to take forward.

As Christ followers, God makes this promise to us in Proverbs 3:5-6.

- Trust in the Lord with all your heart
- Lean not...

Do you know the difference? Dec 21, 2022

Do you know the difference between an entrepreneur who is optimistic and one who is just a wishful thinker?

The wishful thinker has bad judgment. What they think is going to happen, rarely does.

The deals they think are going to close, never do.

Why?

Usually a lack of strategy and planning.

But...

If You Say So? Dec 20, 2022

When a Pessimist speaks, I'll often smile and say ... "If you say so!"

Without knowing it, they are creating their own failure, literally.

What they say, will become so.

They are HUNG by their own tongue. From Proverbs 18:21:

- Death and life are in the power of the tongue
- And those who love it...

The X-Factor to Growth, Multiplication, Scalability and Success. Dec 19, 2022

Our clever ideas are worthless if they run contrary to the will of God.

As Faith Driven Founders our wisdom must come from God, not the world.

Being aligned with His will is what ushers in success.

But the only way you'll ever walk in His will, is to understand the calling on your life, and that of...

Your journey WILL NOT be easy. Dec 16, 2022

Anytime you align your entrepreneurial plans with God's, and are faithful to your calling ... your journey WILL NOT be easy.

Because a calling that cost nothing, accomplishes nothing.

Nevertheless, don't trust things that cannot help you while the Lord waits for you to come to Him for help.

Go to...

This one word from God guarantees your destiny. Dec 15, 2022

As a Faith Driven Founder, this one word from God guarantees your destiny.

The power of Nevertheless.

- You don't have the funding to launch your venture — nevertheless
- You don't have enough experience to be successful — nevertheless
- We are in a recession — nevertheless
-...

I don't trust anyone who doesn't have a slight limp. Dec 14, 2022

If I'm going to place my trust in someone, it's going to be someone who is battle tested.

Someone with a few battle scars.

Every Faith Driven Founder I know loves Deuteronomy 8:18.

"But remember the Lord your God, for it is he who gives you the ability to produce wealth, and so confirms his...

Not every opportunity is an assignment from God. Dec 13, 2022

Don't walk into every open-door thinking it's from God.

I can't count how many opportunities I've passed on, because they're not from God.

When I'm on an assignment for God, a calling, stick to God's roadmap.

But I've learned this the hard way.

There have been a handful of open-doors that looked...

How do we decide what founders and ventures get funded? Dec 12, 2022

After 16 years of leading my venture studio/turnaround practice, RPM Strategic, God called me to launch CanaGlobal in 2016.

Our mission being to mobilize Godly wisdom, startup expertise, and Kingdom capital into disruptive ventures and their maverick founders.

So we developed a Kingdom ecosystem...

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.
-...
