    S4E49: Interview with Kim Avery On Building A Prayer Powered Business and Life

    S4E49: Interview with Kim Avery On Building A Prayer Powered Business and Life

    "In a world of entrepreneurship, hurry and worry are the currencies of our day. But as Christian entrepreneurs, we can escape that grind and grow profitable businesses with less stress and more joy." Kim Avery, author of The Prayer Powered Entrepreneur.

    In today's episode, I had so much fun chatting with Kim about why and how a Christian entrepreneur can lead and grow their business differently from those who don't know Christ.

    Kim is the Vice President of Marketing at the Professional Christian Coaching
    Institute and the founder and president of Kim Avery Coaching, a global coaching firm that specializes in equipping coaches and entrepreneurs to build successful businesses as they partner with God to change the world.
    For years, Kim’s burning question has been, “Since Christian business owners
    have an all-knowing, all-powerful, and all connected God on their side, shouldn’t
    their businesses look VERY different than the businesses of those who don’t know God?”

    The answer HAD to be a resounding yes.

    So, she pored through Scripture searching for God’s principles and provision for today’s busy entrepreneurs and discovered a treasure trove of specific, actionable promises and an ongoing invitation to more strategically
    partner with God.

    In The Prayer Powered Entrepreneur, she shares the exact process she has taught thousands of entrepreneurs to build a better business in a better way.

    Kim lives in beautiful Winter Haven, Florida with her husband Ron, and their
    Australian Labradoodle, Samwise Gamgee. She is also a proud mother to
    Jonathan, her recently deceased daughter Bethany, and “Nina” to four
    incredible grandchildren, Peyton, Paisley, Ethan, and Alexander.

    S4E48: The 5 Habits To Help Win Your Day

    S4E48: The 5 Habits To Help Win Your Day

    Today we will talk about the 5-morning habits that will help you win your day, and then I’ll be answering some questions submitted both live and in advance. So, if you have questions come up as I’m talking please place them in the comments section.

    One of my biggest mentor once said “Motivation is what gets you started. Habit is what keeps you going.” that was Jim Rohn

    There are three kinds of people in the world. Those who have morning routines, those who don’t, and those who want to tell everyone else what their morning routine should be.

    Can you guess which one I am?

    If we’ve known each other for a while you know I’m very passionate about having invigorating habits to fall back on in our everyday lives. I talk about it a lot.
    Why am I so passionate about this topic? For two reasons, habits literally are the driving force behind almost everything we do. And on a more personal note, developing good habits, more specifically, a strong morning routine has changed my life.

    In today's episode, I share the 5 morning habits that can help set you up for a successful day.

    Before you start listening, don't forget to download the very helpful resource I have available for you if you are looking to upgrade your thinking. If you are feeling stuck and want to find out how you can overcome feeling stuck so you can start moving in the right direction again, then I encourage you to download the "Think Bigger" guide here: www.captivate-training.com/thinkbig.

    Ok, don't let me hold you back any longer. Let's listen.

Influencer champion for women!!

I love her deep commitment to share the powerful love of Christ. Courageously showing how we can live out our purpose is her sweet spot! Her authentic interviews are like a God hug.
I’ve grown so much in my faith through her devotional book and her solid teachings.

Truly authentic

I absolutely loved listening. Csilla talks about being authentic and courageous. This podcast is a breath of fresh air. The length is perfect, just long enough for her to share something applicable for my life. I love the monthly devotional time when she shares scripture and a song. It's a nice break in my day for worship and reminds me that God is in everything we do.
