About Ben

It seems like forever that I have been “dreaming” of how to make money on my own instead of working for someone else.  However, the idea of starting a “business” seemed too daunting. So, what did I do? I went into every “work from home” and “make money quick” scheme out there.  Just trying to figure out how to see my dreams come true – how to make money from home so that I can focus more on my family. 

Now, at first that may seem quite selfish, but I am truly building a business that my children and their children will be able to enjoy the fruits.

I have been married to the same woman for over 15 years, we have 7 kids (yes, you read that correctly) and I have been a full time vocational pastor for 17 years.  Over those years I have found myself gaining incredible relationships as well as a wealth of knowledge.  My uncle once said to me,

“Ben, if you can convince people to serve a God that they cannot taste, feel or touch physically – you can sell anything”.  

At the time I heard that statement I was a little “offended” at the implication that I was selling JESUS to people.  However, the more i hear that statement in my head, the more I realize what he was saying. The truth is, if we are going to have our own businesses and be free from working for someone else – then we need to have something to sell, something to bring in income.   To learn more about where I am going with this conversation, just click here at our Getting Started page.

So, after years of serving in ministry, my wife and I decided it was time to replace our income and “work” for our beliefs in a way that doesn’t require the church to have us on salary.  So, here we are!  In this website you are going to see a lot of different types of business ideas that WILL work if you work it.  These are areas that I have been doing in our quest, or areas that my trusted colleagues have seen success (and I am likely trying at the same time as you).  

The fact is, I really want to help people. 13698303_1745278925726596_2658690428325594683_o It has been what I am privileged to do as a pastor, and it is now what I am privileged to do as a business owner.  And… I get to farm with my kids now!

So enough about me, let me know something about you???Be sure to comment and let me know who you are and a little bit about what you are looking for in this website!
