“Everybody must do something” (because God only blesses the work of our hands.)

Psa. 1: 1-3

“Blessed is the man that walks not in the counsel of the ungodly, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of the scornful.

But his delight is in the law of the LORD; and in his law does he meditate day and night.

And he shall be like a tree planted by the rivers of water, that brings forth his fruit in his season; his leaf also shall not wither; and whatever he does shall prosper.”

God will be unjust to prosper a lazy man.

An entrepreneur is a worker, he is not a lazy person. The word “entrepreneur” is not a title, it describes an active person – one that undertakes a business venture.

An entrepreneur can be either a man or a woman.

Prov. 31: 16-22

“She considers a field, and buys it: with the fruit of her hands she plants a vineyard. She girds her loins with strength, and strengthens her arms. She perceives that her merchandise is good: her candle goes not out by night.”

The woman in this verse is a wise woman. An entrepreneur does not look for quick gain, but for something long-term.

An entrepreneur is a hard worker; before you start a business, consider if you are wired up for it, physical strength-wise. Are you cut out for what you are doing to make ends meet? Are the ends truly meeting?

An entrepreneur watches and maintains the excellence in her merchandise and goods. Is your branding good enough to attract people? Are your clients changing business places because your services are not good enough?

“Her candle goeth not out by night.” She does not stop planning.

“She lays her hands to the spindle, and her hands hold the distaff. She stretches out her hand to the poor; yes, she reaches forth her hands to the needy.” She is a philanthropist.

An entrepreneur is a sole business runner. You do not have to overstaff at the beginning or get a huge office space – there are many online businesses running just fine.

An entrepreneur plans, organizes and takes leadership of a business venture with the mindset of making profit.

Isa. 48: 17 – “I am the LORD your God which teaches you to profit, which leads you by the way that you should go.”

Matt. 13: 45, 46 – “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like to a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”

Before you invest, investigate!

Don’t start a business if you have not made up your mind on what you want to do.

An entrepreneur is a risk taker.


Understand your passion first. 22: 29. Your passion is your undying crave for something – the fire that is burning inside you. It is a little bit different from a potential. Your potential is your gift in you. Your passion is the drive to use the gift in you.

“Seest thou a man diligent in his business? he shall stand before kings; he shall not stand before mean men.”

What do you have that great men will desire? Are you competent at what you do?

Don’t only pray for promotion, qualify for promotion!

Understand the market trend and analysis. Do your investigations well. What does the law say about what you want to start?
