#028: The Very Best Business To Start – NOW [Podcast]


Monday, December 12, 2022


Ray Edwards

There is one business that is the very best business for almost anyone to start. And the time to start it is now.

That's what this week's podcast is about.

As you know, I write this blog and do these podcasts with the intention of helping people start, run, and grow an Internet-based business.

I believe people who feel drawn to do such things are drawn by their Creator. That God placed things within you that cause you to want to be in business. I don't feel this is any less spiritual than people who are “called” to go into ministry.


This Week's Tip(s)

Put good stuff into your head. The best way I can think of to do that is listen to good, instructional, inspirational podcasts. Here is a list of the podcasts that I have on my “must listen to every episode” list:

•Michael Hyatt, This Is Your Life
•Cliff Ravenscraft, The Podcast Answer Man
•Erik J Fisher, Beyond The To Do List
•Dan Miller, 48 Days
•Robert Plank, The Robert Plank Show
•Derek Halpern, Social Triggers Insider
•Pat Flynn, Smart Passive Income
Joseph Prince Podcast
•Bethel Church Sermon Of The Week

Spiritual Foundations

There is no division between “sacred and secular” for believers!

Bondservants, obey in all things your masters according to the flesh, not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers, but in sincerity of heart, fearing God. And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ. Colossians [3:22]-24 (NKJV)
