THE PURPOSE OF ENTREPRENEURSHIP





Why did you start a business?

Most people start a business for one or all of the following reasons.

1. To earn a living.
2. To build wealth
3. To make impact

Think deeply. Which of these is or are your reasons?

What Entrepreneurship really is

Entrepreneurship is the process of designing, launching and running a new business, which is often initially a small business.
 The people who create these businesses are called entrepreneurs (Wikepedia).

Entrepreneurship involves willingly taking calculated risks.

Therefore if earning a living or building wealth is just your reason for delving into entrepreneurship?

 There is a high chance you will be disappointed.

You can earn a living safely as an employee and you can build wealth as an employee too. You simply need to know how to compound and invest money to create wealth. There are great finance coaches who can show you how to compound and invest your money for wealth creation.

Your reasons  for delving into entrepreneurship becomes a game changer once it truly includes – To impact lives.



  
3 things you must bear in mind on your entrepreneurial journey.

1. Significance not Survival must be your goal

2. Relevance not relaxation must be your concern.

3. Money is the reward of products/services not your purpose.


If money is not the purpose of entrepreneurship?

What then is?

I speak to believers

The purpose of entrepreneurship is found in the ELEMENTS OF A RELEVANT VISION excerpted from The Recruit Mentoring Program below.

A relevant vision contains the following as summarized in Isaiah 49:6
“And he said, It is a light thing that thou shouldest be my servant to raise up the tribes of Jacob, and to restore the preserved of Israel: I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles, that thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth.”(KJB)

Take a close look at that scripture. You will see 4 distinct elements of a God-given vision.

1. It Raises
2. It Restores
3. It Lits
4. It Saves

1. It Raises:

“raise up the tribes of Jacob”
Jacob is also known as Israel in the bible. He was called Jacob at birth and later called Israel at encounter.

“And he said, Thy name shall be called no more Jacob, but Israel: for as a prince hast thou power with God and with men, and hast prevailed.”Genesis 32:28 (KJB)

A close look at that verse reveals Jacob as an ordinary man, with frailty of character and Israel as a prince, powerful with God, powerful with men and a prevailer/winner/overcomer.


In clearer terms, Jacob refers to the man yet to enter his purpose while Israel is the man walking in his purpose.

Now the Hebrew word raise in that verse is transliterated “qum”. It means to strengthen, to establish, to build up!

Therefore a relevant vision establishes those who haven’t found their purposes. And how do you do that? You guide them to the place of encounter with CHRIST so that they can receive their purpose!

 The Establishment of a man is in HIS PURPOSE (God's divine assignment for HIS LIFE)!


Who is that vision in your heart going to raise?

Who is that vision in your hand raising?

If no one is coming into your "organization, system, business, NGO or events getting an encounter that awakens the prince /preva iler/establishment in them?

THAT VISION ISN"T ETERNALLY RELEVANT even if you make millions of dollars out of it!



 2. It Restores:

“restore the preserved of Israel”

The preserved of Israel are those who have met the Lord, understood their purposes and are devotedly working in it.

 They’ve been kept, guarded from the corruption of the world’s system and have stood for the Lord in service in spite of all they’ve been through.

However, these people have missed out on some sort of comfort that they ordinary would have had if they had compromised their stand with God.

To restore them is to minster/bring them back to a place of comfort.

Missionaries readily fall in this category. They’ve been stripped off a lot and their souls sometimes feel weary by the toss and bustle of the attacks and pressures out there. It is the duty of fellow believers to “restore”, “refresh”, “bring” them back into some form of rest/comfort.

Beyond missionaries, there are other faithful believers serving in their capacities and standing in defense of our faith and the name of the Lord around you- look out for them.

How is that vision (NGO, business, event or anything else) in your hand, restoring other believers?




3. It Lits

“I will also give thee for a light to the Gentiles”
I love how this sounds!!!

Dear Entrepreneur, you are the light gifted to the unsaved!!!

You are not just in the force of light. You are the LIGHT NOW!

A light connotes hope, resolve, comfort, deliverance, solution!!!!
 ARE YOU BEING THAT TO YOUR WORLD?
 ARE YOU TRULY BEING A SOLUTION?
WHAT PROBLEM IS YOUR VISION GOING TO SOLVE?
WHAT PROBLEM IS YOUR VISION CURRENTLY SOLVING?

When the world is confused, we are to be the light guiding them to the TRUTH, THE WAY and THE LIFE!

Please solve problems like hunger, poverty, Education and those many areas where mankind struggles; but if you do all that solution provision and not lit hearts to the consciousness of CHRIST as the true solution to the decay of mankind, YOU HAVE NOT FAITHFULLY EXECUTED THE MISSION!

To give man rice without offering HIM the opportunity to meet your Christ is wickedness to that man.

For the true light that every man seeks is the light that lits the soul not just the body.

 Does your vision have this element?





4. It saves

“thou mayest be my salvation unto the end of the earth”

God sees clearly the pain of mankind. God sees clearly what damage the fall has done not just to man but to other creatures of the earth.

When He sent JESUS he dealt His best BLOW against darkness.

Dear Entrepreneur, it is unfair to not save others!

The word salvation is translated “Yeshua” in Hebrew.

It means to be my deliverer, helper, prosperity, saviour to the ends of the earth.

Does your vision have this quality?


The father’s 3-fold agenda is to

1. Save the lost

2. Birth/Awaken purpose in the saved

3. Strengthen the believers

Any vision that isn’t fulfilling at least one of these 3-fold agenda is ambition birthed and therefore eternally IRRELEVANT.

MY POINT

Don't waste your entrepreneurial opportunity.  The money is a means to an end, not the end. Don’t make the money your purpose.

Committed to your fulfillment

WHY DO “LOOSE” GIRLS MARRY FASTER?

“If this life has anything to gain at all, I’ll count it lost if I can’t hear you feel you, cause I need you…” rang my amazing ringtone by Lecrae. I picked up the sleek darling to see who misses me. It was this pretty friend of mine.
Ada (Not real name) and I met at the University of Nigeria, Nsukka in our first year. We had a lot in common and she was just my type (whatever that means) LOL. Anyway, I was (and still am) literally and figuratively in love with God and I noticed her heart was committed to God and His standards too.
Well, we graduated four years later and you know how life happens. We haven’t really kept in touch for a while. I heard sometime back that she was engaged and I called to say congratulations.  We talked about how life had been since after school and how we both are still fervently loving and serving the Lord. She said her wedding was three months away and I told her I definitely needed the aso-ebi (A uniform material sold to people who wish to attend an event).

HOW TO AWAKEN YOUR PROPHETIC ABILITY

If you are female and sense prophetic gifts on your life?
Here is a bible based, Christ Centered institution to help you develop and effectively use your prophetic gifts.
In simple terms, Prophecy can be defined as hearing the voice of God and speaking what He says. 
This gift is basically experienced in two ways. Auditory- Where  the one receiving the message hears words, which they then repeat or release  to those to whom one is sent.

Visual- This is referred to as The SEER gifting. Here, the receiver sees a message through some type of picture, which they then release or speak about as led.
These pictures are either received while awake by means of visions, while asleep through dreams or while half awake in trances.
Most prophetic people will experience both aspects at various times, but they tend to have one that is more dominant or frequent.
Can you relate with any of the above?

When I was younger, I had a wish. I wished that I could move from street to street selling to anyone who cared to buy.
I admired people who moved about carrying their wares on their heads because I felt they had the privilege of sightseeing and freedom of movement. 
The only chance I got to see places was when we were in the car on our way to church or school. 
The other times were when we occasionally visited Amusement Park or stopped by the then famous Mr. Biggs for lunch. This was in the 90’s. I soon got bored from seeing the same routes and sights.

I wished for more sightseeing opportunities and freedom of movement. I thought the only way I could get those was to be like the other children or adults who hawked their wares.
One day, my wish came to be!
