Overcoming Weaknesses

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

We all have weaknesses. Some are more serious than others. For each of us the key is how we learn to compensate for these weaknesses to become overcomers through Christ rather than allow our weak points to defeat us.

Paul spoke to this when he wrote, “Therefore, in order to keep me from becoming conceited, I was given a thorn in my flesh, a messenger of Satan, to torment me. Three times I pleaded with the Lord to take it away from me. But he said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me.” (2 Corinthians 12:7-9, NIV) This passage demonstrates how Paul, in spite of his incredibly effective ministry, experienced weaknesses which the Lord helped him overcome.

Hiring Family Members

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

The question about hiring family members comes up frequently. I’ve seen this work out well and I’ve seen catastrophic results from a relational point of view.

When asked this question, my first response is another question: “Would you be able to let the family member go if circumstances required termination?” In most situations the short answer is no, at least not without great pain and difficulty.

Lighten Your Wallet before Traveling

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

I have traveled extensively for business, both internationally and domestically. A traveler’s wallet is a high risk for theft, especially from skilled pickpockets.

One trick I’ve used is to lighten my wallet. I remove all cards I don’t believe I will need on my trip. I usually carry one business and one personal card. I leave the rest at home.  That way, should the worst happen and I lose a card or my wallet, I don’t have to close all of my accounts.

Keeping Your Team Together

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

In the book of Romans Paul gave us a valuable lesson.  “Now I urge you, brethren, keep your eye on those who caused dissensions, and hindrances contrary to the teaching which you learned,  and turn away from them. For such a men are slaves, not of our Lord Christ but of their own appetites; and by their smooth and flattering speech they deceive hearts of the unsuspecting.” (Romans 16:17-18, NASB)

Start-up Capital

Posted by Steve Marr in Untagged 

Frequently business personnel come to me looking for assistance to raise start-up funds for business. My answer is fairly simple; however, the implementation may not be as easy. There are four ways to obtain capital for starting a business.

1.      Start by investing your own accumulated funds. 

Frequently an entrepreneur will not have enough funds to properly launch a business venture. In these instances the owner will need to invest more time than money. While this may take longer to get a business off the ground, you will not need to look elsewhere for funds.
