Not long ago I contacted Sunu about starting a home business. I had read her post on 50 Authentic Online Business Ideas That Actually Work} and was inspired to put my talents to use to help my family earn a second income.

Sunu expertly walked me through each phase with precise and well thought out step-by-step instructions. It was obvious as we met online on a weekly basis, that she had prepared for each session ahead of time.

This issue matters deeply to me, and it’s highly relevant, because God has put people in all kinds of positions of influence within society. In fact, he positions each and every one of us where we are to impact other people. He didn’t ask any of us to be an island unto ourselves, or to not have influence, or to not affect the world or the culture around us. I don’t believe he called us to isolate and withdraw and live life behind a wall and barricade ourselves off from the non-Christian world around us.
John D. Rockefeller is considered one of the most influential businessmen of the 20th century. Interested in entrepreneurship from a young age, he began his first proper venture at age 20. At 24 years old, he opened his first oil refinery, a decision that eventually led to his founding of Standard Oil Company. At its peak, Standard Oil controlled 90 percent of refineries and pipelines in the United States. Devout in his faith, Rockefeller contributed a great deal of his wealth to philanthropic causes. By his death, he had given away more than $530 million.
I am still contracting, but my wife & I have been feeling a shift in many of the areas that you speak of. I have always seen the business as a ministry & have seen God use it to impact lives, but we felt it was time to develop in our entrepreneurial thinking. I believe there is going to be a move of God in this nation & I believe it will be huge in the marketplace. Feel like we are just getting started down this path & I appreciate that God is stirring your heart & your sharing this.
The Church tends to lag behind. Whatever the world around us creates, we recreate fifteen years later and 85% as well. You see this in Christian film. You see it in Christian entertainment. We often give a free pass to very poor quality because we figure, “Well, this is the Christian version. It’s not supposed to be as good.” We just lag behind, and we wait for the marketplace to tell us what to do.

"I would be stating the obvious to say that we work in a culture that pushes successfully for businesses to seek financial gain above all else. I am thrilled that someone finally thought to publish a guide that allows me as a consumer and a business owner to deal with people who have similar values. The Christian Business Referral Network proposes a new level of accountability in advertising and business practices that gives me greater confidence in my choices as a customer. It also inspires a greater trust of those patients who would choose our office because we are Christians. This was an inspired idea! WE LOVE BEING PART OF THIS MINISTRY!”
From a Christian social justice perspective, many have called the distinction between regional and national accreditation a cartel that is a major injustice that hurts the poor. Having said that, there are those that still maintain this distinction, so we address their concerns in this section. This letter from Dr. Leah Matthews addresses some concerns about the quality of DEAC accreditation.
How many people obtain a University education, only to graduate and then become unable to find a job in their field of study? How many of those that do find a job end up busting their tail at a company that offers a measly $24,000 per year… just to “get into” their field of study via an entry level position… all in hopes of steadily receiving promotions, so that one day they make $50k to $100k? How many people get into serious debt for their college tuition, in the tens of thousands of dollars?
Madam C.J. Walker is considered one of America’s first women to become a self-made millionaire. Born to former slaves, Walker faced a series of difficulties early in life. These included poverty, the death of her parents, and several failed marriages. Eventually she moved to Colorado and found work as a sales agent, which eventually inspired her to start her own business. She began to sell her own line of hair care products designed specifically for African-American women. At her peak, she ran a host of factories both in the United States and abroad. Walker spent a good deal of her life advocating for the rights of African-Americans and gave away much of her earnings both during her life and at her death. Recipients included the NAACP, the YMCA and YWCA, historical preservation projects, and civil rights causes.
