Why are many entrepreneurs NOT doing what they are meant to do?
Cori Willis works full time in the real estate industry and she sees person after person who work in real estate who don’t fit the jobs they are doing. They may be a property manager but hate working with tenants and lease agreements. They could be a real estate agent and don’t enjoy sales at all. Why does this sort of thing happen? Cori says much of the time it’s because people don’t take the time to discover how they are gifted and then apply those gifts to a particular business that will not only be more fulfilling for them but also bring greater blessing to the world because they are operating according to their unique design. You’ve got to hear how Cori describes it on this episode, she has wonderful insights.
How can you discover the right business, the BEST business to build or join?
Cori Willis is passionate about helping people discover the place where they can make their maximum contribution to the world. Many times it’s in a business – either one they create to meet a specific need in the world or one they join as part of an existing team to advance a great cause or service. Cori believes that every person who is interested in business even the slightest bit should take a first, little step to see what doors open. Oftentimes that’s one of the best ways to begin exploring the possibilities and discover your perfect fit. Cori has a lot of great stuff to share on this episode, so be sure you listen.
If you don’t know where to get your business start: pray and be open.
When Cori Willis talks about business, she always does so with the understanding that every person has been designed by God to bring specific things – their gifts – into the world to benefit people and fulfill God’s purposes. One of the first things she suggests is that you begin to pray, asking God to reveal or point out the gifts He’s given you – but as you do you need to be open. The gifts you think you have may not be what you think they are and the ways you think you are supposed to serve may not be the ways He has in mind. You’ve got to hear Cori’s thoughts on this point – they might set you free from some bad ideas and wrong thinking you’ve been following for a long time.
If you are looking for your best business fit, the first thing to do is to take a step.
Most people who are curious about whether or not they should get into business or become an entrepreneur probably should. That’s what Cori Willis believes. To her, that curiosity is a sign that there’s something along the business path that you are meant to find. There is something along the way that will open up for you to do or to be a part of. But if you’re going to discover what it is you need to begin walking down the path. Cori suggests you simply take a first step, as small as it may seem. That’s the only way you’ll move closer to where you’re supposed to be and be able to see another step down the path. Find out more from Cori on this episode.
