Entrepreneurism: Creating something from nothing
Many people find themselves unemployed because of the economic problems. My encouraging word today is: Don’t be totally discouraged by what you see or what you are going through. You still have your talents, skills and abilities and the knowledge you have learned as tools to help you move to the next level. I encourage you to use the “Entrepreneur” approach and “create something from nothing”.
If you worked in the banking industry, you may have the skill to assist others in qualifying for loans or help them understand the basic workings of the stock market. Use those skills to create wealth for yourself by helping others solve their problems.
Although the verse may not exactly fit, In Proverbs 11:26, it says, “He that withholdeth corn, the people shall curse him: but blessing shall be upon the head of him that selleth it”. Notice that it did not say you had to “give” it away, although giving is nice. But it said “selleth it”.
To me this means that if you have something that can help people, they will be more than happy to reward you for it with pay! So again, I encourage you to take inventory of what you have and take it to the market place. People are waiting to buy from you.
And as you begin to help others, you will notice that you need help. The cycle has begun and a new micro-economy is created. Let it begin with you.
