Behind the Curtain with Joseph Warren
Startup Nation, today I’m going to share a story, and it’s going to be a story about Jesus. I know not all my listeners are Christian or even religious. That’s ok. But this story reveals a critical mindset that allows entrepreneurs like you to overcome tiredness, frustration, and depression.
One day Jesus was on a mountain teaching a large crowd of people. He was teaching them about how to live and about who God is. This crowd wasn’t full of professors, or priests, or billionaires. These were regular people like you and me.
Jesus understood the problems facing regular people. He knew that we worry. We worry about jobs, and food, and clothing. So, to encourage the crowd of listeners, he said, “So do not worry, saying, ‘What shall we eat?’ or ‘What shall we drink?’ or ‘What shall we wear?’… But seek first [God’s] kingdom and his righteousness, and all of these things will be given to you as well.”
Behind the Curtain with Joseph Warren
Startup Nation, I want to invite you to join me on a free Spiritual Clarity Call. There are a lot of business coaches who can guide you in pitching investors or marketing your product. But few coaches address the heart-level issues that affect our business and personal lives.
The reason I’m passionate about spiritual coaching is because I get to see behind the entrepreneurship curtain. Some of my coaching clients make tens of millions in annual revenue. They own the Ferraris and the beachfront condos. From the outside, they look like they’re absolutely killing it.
But I’ll tell you looks can be deceiving. I’ve seen it firsthand. For all the money and success my friends have achieved, they’re miserable. I see the pain and sorrow so many entrepreneurs struggle with. And maybe this sounds a little too familiar.
A Conversation with Brock Blake and Joseph Warren
Brock Blake is founder and CEO of Lendio, an online marketplace for small business loans. Lendio offers borrowers access to loan options from more lenders than any other marketplace in the industry. Blake is an Inc. 500 CEO, national keynote speaker, and Forbes columnist.
As an entrepreneur himself, Brock knows that small business owners need resources to scale their businesses. And if you’re an entrepreneur following the podcast, you know you can’t do it alone. You need a support network, partners, and funding.
As a spiritual coach, I’ve helped dozens of business owners tear down and replace negative mindsets. Most of these perspectives come from childhood wounds. To some extent, every person has internalized messages from family and friends. We also listen to lies our culture tells us about ourselves. Sometimes the lies are so pervasive that we don’t realize we’re acting out of these negative spaces.
Time and time again, I’ve seen clients wrestle with three, distinct mindsets. These mindsets hold them back in their businesses and personal lives.
Religion and coaching. Both can be polarizing topics. Some people have great experiences with them. Others (for legitimate reasons) hate both.
In this article, I’ll try to address a few common questions people have about business, Christianity, and coaching. How to they relate? Can they coexist? Of course, if you get to the end and you still have questions, email me at joseph(at)josephwarren(dot)net
Can business and faith go together?
You’re an entrepreneur. Why would you ever need a spiritual life coach?
People like you are special. You’re driven, intelligent, and you don’t play by the 9-5 rules of corporate America. You’re what other people call an entrepreneur.
Because you’re someone out changing the world, I don’t need to remind you about your upcoming angel investor meeting. Or that payroll is due next week. Or that your new social media campaigns need to be fixed before your new product launch.
With so much busyness, why in the world would you spend precious hours of your week with a spiritual life coach?
