110 This doesn‘t feel like Heaven in business to me!
Fires, floods, pandemics, politics...people - with all the craziness it sure doesn't feel like Heaven in Business to me! There is pressure coming on all sides and everywhere we turn we are faced with questions that seem to have difficult if not impossible answers. What do we do in moments of history like we are in now?
Although we may feel pressure I'm reminded of Hebrews 10:38:
"But we aren’t the sort of people who timidly draw back and end up being destroyed. We’re the sort of people who have faith so that our whole beings are preserved."
We may not know each other personally but one thing I do know - the marketplace does not attract the timid or the weak. Just by choosing to engage in business I know that God has placed a strength and determination inside of you that, when you choose to operate in His strength, reminds you that you are the "sort of person" who relentlessly perseveres laying hold of all that God has in store for you!
This week we want to offer you practical and encouraging tools to equip you to face any challenge you may face. We are offering Andy's latest book FREE to you (you only pay for shipping). Throughout the book you will find practical tools to keep you engaged, thriving, and moving forward. To access this offer please click here! (https://www.paypal.com/paypalme/findinghopebook)

Fires, floods, pandemics, politics...sounds like the PERFECT opportunity for Heaven to invade earth and for you to experience Heaven in your Business!!
Your were born for this!

109 The Key to Transformation
This year I have been leaning into learning about the Kingdom of God. Reading books like The Unshakeable Kingdom and the Unchanging Person by E.Stanley Jones and The Cosmic Initiative by Jack Taylor. Plus interviewing the likes of Bill Johnson and Patrice Tsague and Shae Bynes and more...
I've also been reading through the book of Matthew (in the bible) looking at how much Jesus focused on the crowd compared to what he did with the disciples.
Here's a couple things Ive learned and what this means for you if you are serious about impacting the world for generations to come.
1. Prayer and worship is not enough - engage in the SYSTEMS of society
2. Transformation is an inside job - learn from Iraq, Afghanistan...
3. The crowd is fickle... like social media and politics... don't trust them
4. In our desire to multiply transformation we have bastardized the discipleship process 5. The way forward is ONE by ONE - FOLLOW ME AND I WILL MAKE YOU
6. Your greatest return is your kids... then your key team...
108 Vanity Metrics or Fruitful Endeavors
Last week Janine and I dropped our second daughter to Cornell University. It was an experience! Here's some of what I learned and what I pray will help you also - whether you have children or not!
- Generosity always wins
- A 2.5 star is a 2.5 star regardless of photo's
- It's vanity to work long and late
- Play and rest are a litmus test of a healthy life
Have a wonderful week and don't hesitate to send me any questions or comments to email@example.com
107 Problem? No Problem!
*** THIS IS A TIMELY MESSAGE *** There are a few challenges around all of us right now. Individually. Corporately. Nationally. Globally. It's easy to feel overwhelmed and wonder how on earth we can get through it... OR we can get God's perspective and realize that we were born for this. This episode (used with personal permission from Bill Johnson), you will be equipped how to see from God's perspective, regardless of what you are facing, and turn your problems into the very nutrients that will sustain you. Problem? NO PROBLEM!
For more on Bill Johnson - see BJM.org.
Bill and his wife Beni are the senior leaders of Bethel Church in Redding, California. Together, they serve a growing number of churches worldwide that are passionate for revival and seeing God’s kingdom established on earth. Bill travels extensively around the world teaching and equipping people to live a supernatural lifestyle.

106 How to Increase or Scale UP
Last week I got to run along the border between USA and Mexico. As I was running I had an epiphany about all the times I have prayed for God to give me favor and increase. This was the FIRST time I explored the physical borders, or limitations, of the country I live in. What about the things I prayed increase for? Have I tested or explored my 'borders' in business, in community, in connections? What about you?
Have you ever prayed "God increase my territory" (1 Chronicles 4:9-10) or "Enlarge the place of my dwelling" (Isaiah 54:2)? How would you know that God has answered your
This episode I outline what stops us from increasing and what we can do about it to partner with God and grow in faith, grow in family and grow in business!

105 Will You LIVE or Stay Distracted?
Life seems to be awfully messy at the moment. Uncertainty was always around us but right now it's up front and personal. Everywhere I turn friends, clients and acquaintances are surrounded by upheaval. Yet, every time I have a conversation beyond the surface, it quickly becomes apparent that MOST of the 'upheaval' is a DISTRACTION. It may be an emotionally charged distraction, but it's still a distraction. It may be very real and very painful, but it's still a distraction. What about you?
Are you spending your time on what is most important or are you endlessly feeding on things you have no control over?
Are you making intentional steps towards what you were born for, or are you quickly turned aside by every else's hot-topic?
Are you dreaming with God and taking action, or are you distracted?
Good news is, regardless of where you find yourself, today is a great day to choose to dream again and choose to take intentional action towards those dreams.
I highly recommend Dream Big or Love Does by Bob Goff.

Relevant & Great Content
Always timely, always relevant and most importantly, always points back to the Father.
Love how relatable Andy is
Andy goes to my church and I have been starting to listening to his podcasts. He has great topics and I love the length of them. It allows you to listen to a few at a time when you have a busy life. His subjects are relatable to me and he often points out things that I don’t always realize, which I really love.
Thankful to God that He brought Andy & team to our area for Heaven In Business Seminar in Feb. Receiving from God thru them, then rubbing shoulders with them to pray for local businesses of attendees was enlightening, encouraging, strengthening and fun. The LORD is with Andy!
