The Bible offends many people today. There is a movement to remove it from public places and quiet our voices. If this is how you feel, this course is not for you. There are many secular options that will meet your personal development needs.
At the end of this course, students will:
I am no Theologian. I am just like you - a Christian seeking to grow in the faith. If I can embrace the Word of God seamlessly into my business, then it can be done. If it can be done, YOU can do it!
Like everyone else, Christian leaders, and entrepreneurs consume personal and business development via popular Gurus, self-help books, and workshops.
NO GURU NEEDED! Psalms 16:7 "I bless Adonai, my counselor; at night my inmost being instructs me." (CJB)
Luke 6:40 reminds us that a student can be like his teacher but not greater than the teacher. In other words, a teacher/coach/mentor can only carry us as far as they have gone. How is it that we, Christians, do not seek to learn from Jesus, the MASTER Teacher?
Psalms 119:99 "I have more understanding than all my teachers,because I meditate on your instruction." (CJB)
The recession/depression of 2006-2010 showed me, a multiple-certified expert in the financial space, that the secular way of doing money and finances was an inferior system, built on sand. That is why it crashed and took so many Christians with it - including me.
When I cried to the Lord, He reminded me that as bad as my situation seemed, it was still a merciful place as He graciously did not allow me to endure what I deserved; that my condition was in direct correlation to my actions and omissions.
Romans 13:8 says, "Owe no man any debt but love." Well, I owed and owed, because the world taught leverage. For example; swiping that little card, and for a tiny bit per month, I could acquire assets beyond my current income. For little to zero down, many owned property they later lost to foreclosures.
The Lord patiently taught me over the next months directly from His Word, and as the insights came, I noted them and eventually published them in my book, The Bible on Business, and The Creditors Are Coming.
The Bible has tons of practical, relevant tips and strategies for leadership, money, investing, and much more. In addition to my books, this course is designed to help Christians come to the same conclusion - and seek first what God has to say on a matter, before, and even alongside human wisdom.

|Section 1: Introduction to the Course|
This course does not set out to convert anyone, nor to convince anyone about who Jesus is, or the authority of the Bible. If you are not already on board that Jesus is the Teacher of teachers, the Master of masters; and that the Bible is the authoritative Word of God to us, then this course is not for you.
If you are continuing to read, then it is my assumption going forward, that you are a Christian, or at least, not opposed to the teachings of Christianity, and you believe the Bible is the Word of God, regardless of your current relationship with God.
This section of the course is to prepare you for the upcoming content, set the tone and the frame of mind to create the best experience for you. There truly is no one-size-fits-all program, so, while I have tried to be considerate of the various levels of Christian maturity, denominational backgrounds, and cultural perspectives - it is not truly possible to please everyone 100%.
As much as possible, I am using the Bible as the main resource and reference, however, expect to see my personal experience and testimony, as well as some of my past students come through as well.
All of us interact with this world and other people through filters. Deny it as much as you may, however, our upbringing, culture, experiences and personal testimony does color how we view God, and each other. It is my personal goal for those of you going through this course, to get fresh eyes, or a new filter; for you to be able to embrace the Bible as a practical, relevant guide to business, leadership and personal life mastery.
A little about me. Unmentioned in the video: While inactive in these careers since creating my own income path; I am also a Paralegal whose focus was Wills, Trusts and Probate, and I did a stint at the US. Attorney's office. I also hold Florida licence as a Real Estate Broker; and license in life, health, annuities; I am a Notary, and a lifestyle product sales Executive in the area of precious metals, diamonds, and travel.
