He didn’t work for money. He was willing to walk away. He invested his emotions wisely. He did sweat the small stuff.
Beyond work, beyond entrepreneurism, there is “spiritreneurism”—work that allows you to do well by doing right. In Jesus, Entrepreneur, Laurie Beth Jones, bestselling author of Jesus, CEO, shows you how to find soul satisfaction in your work.
Jones shows that there is no contradiction between earning a comfortable living even as you use your job to promote your deepest spiritual and personal beliefs. How exactly is this possible? By sharing timeless wisdom from the Bible and anecdotes from her own life and consulting career, as well as tales from the best and worst work situations in today’s rapidly changing business environment, she reveals how you can inspire yourself and your coworkers to use your highest gifts to benefit the bottom line.
A genius at making the powerful familiar, Jones offers a commandingly fresh and compelling case for Jesus as a role model for modern times. Rich with humor, exercises, meditations, and case histories, Jesus, Entrepreneur is essential reading for those seeking to put their spirituality to practical use.
