I saw this article by Mike Holmes on Dr Amos Johnsons site (http://goo.gl/Tb0z9) and wanted you to be sure and take a look.
Is the Church prepared for the next move of God? by Mike Holmes
Before Ryan Ferrier went on to co-found and sell 3 companies to Microsoft and Zynga…he was jobless, broke, and teetering on the brink of hopelessness. Before he became an executive coach and consultant to the C-Suite of major companies he found himself cleaning toilets in a nursing home trying to make ends meet. And before he devoted himself to helping young people discover their purpose in life…he was a young man trying to find purpose in his life.
Ryan’s story may seem remarkable (and it is) but…he is simply a member of the new revolution.
A startup revolution.
Since President Obama launched the Startup America Partnership, a well-funded public/private initiative to encourage high-growth enterprises, a rising tide of activists, business associations, schools, nonprofits, investors and corporations are spawning startup contests and boot camps to support new businesses.
The ranks of the self-employed have been growing. According to research by Economic Modeling Specialists International, the number of people who primarily work on their own has swelled by 1.3 million since 2001 to 10.6 million, a 14% increase.
This “revolution” doesn’t appear to be slowing down anytime soon.
