  1. Hello Bill,
    I am not a business owner at this point, but I am currently a business leader for one location for a national, publicly traded company. I found your website through my research trying to learn to integrate my faith and business when I became the director of my branch. I have really appreciated your insight and have gained valuable information, but I find your information a lot higher level than what I currently am involved in. I’m 30 years old and have been a director for a little more than two years, so I have many more years to work in the business world. At this point, I feel a gap between the decisions I have the power to make and the topics you cover. While this is information I am eagerly filing away for the future as well as currently use within my branch, what resources could you recommend that might be more suited to someone like me who is trying to grow my career but still trying to integrate faith and business at a leadership level below the CEO?

    1. I can understand why there is a gap for you RE the content on this site. I do write specifically for Christian Business Owners because I think they have a unique stewardship responsibility (and opportunity) before the Lord to use their business to fulfill and live out the four purposes of business. I don’t know of any good resources for you concerning the integration of your faith with being a leader in a publically traded company. There’s a hole there that needs to be filled. Perhaps God is leading you to take a thought leadership role in this regard? Post back if you’d like to discuss more.

  2. I heard you today on Faith Radio with Austin Hill. Where do you recommend we put our 401k/SEP/ SIMPLE money in light of the impending financial crisis to lessen the risk of loss? Leave it the stock market or move it to a bank Cd???? Thanks for your reply and Happy Thanksgiving.

    1. In the event of a financial collapse, most paper-based and electronic-based money will be worthless. Instead, I would have some goods to barter with (not gold or silver…) and would still have some money. The reality is that our money will lose it’s buying power – which is the real issue. It’s not where you put your money as much as it is having inelastic goods or services with which you can trade. Does this help?

        1. In the event of a complete financial collapse, people will barter for basic needs – food, clothing, shelter, protection, security and the like. So the basics we take for granted would become valuable – clean water, self-defense, ability to cook food and so forth. Being able to trade in these areas will help you a great deal until the economy gets going again. Does this help?
