Supporting one another in business

This morning I read a verse from Galatians 6:10 the Message version that says “So let’s not allow ourselves to get fatigued doing good. At the right time we will harvest a good crop if we don’t give up, or quit. Right now, therefore, every time we get the chance, let us work for the benefit of all, starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith.”

Think about the last time you needed AC service, or auto repair, or carpet cleaning, or had a question on a refinance or got new insurance quotes to save money. Did you go to to search for these services? Why not? Just as Paul wrote in Galatians we need to work together “starting with the people closest to us in the community of faith”. Each day through marketing and in the people I come in contact with I am constantly promoting your businesses. Just think what it would be like to have all of you also promoting each other’s businesses as well!

Another part of this passage that I really like is the part about not giving up. I know we are all fatigued and grinding it out day after day but so often I hear of those success stories about companies that everyone thinks are over night successes to only find out that those same companies struggled for ten plus years and many times the owner had contemplated throwing in the towel but hung on a little longer and was finally rewarded and was able to “harvest a good crop”.

Starting next month we are rolling out some exciting marketing materials to everyone in our community and we are boosting our online marketing campaigns to build awareness of our community.  Our slogan still remains the same of “Support The Business People That Support Your Church” and we are going to leverage that slogan to compel our church communities to look to our businesses for goods and services that they are looking for. We are here to support you! Let us know if there is anything we can help you with in your business.
