How & Why Good Business Creates True Wealth Introduction: Building on a solid foundation
|part 1||part 2, The Character Test|
How & Why Good Business Creates True Wealth took three years to develop and was completed in 2006. It was formerly called Genesis: The Business Workshop. It contains 13 different 30-minutes video chapters. Each chapter is split into roughly 10-minute sections to allow for healthy discussion between videos. The foundation comes from the Bible and True Wealth…By the Book, authored by John Beehner, founder of Wise Counsel. It is based on many of his insights from studying the Word, and practical experiences of working with hundreds of CEOs and companies over 15 years. Genesis features real life stories of respected entrepreneurs and companies that have worked toward becoming highly effective in the marketplace, whether they knew Christ or not. Men and women like J.C Penney, Conrad Hilton, Ray Kroc, Kraft Foods and Nike, just to name a few, are featured with 50 other examples. E-workbooks on this site are available with all the graphics.
John's conclusion is that the Truth of God works in all aspects of business and life, regardless of whether or not you believe in God or His son, regardless of whether or not you like the truth, and regardless of whether or not you have heard the truth. The Bible says, “My people are ruined for lack of knowledge!” (Hosea 4:6) The Lord uses all types of people to build businesses through His Visions and Grace because he needs employers and products/services for His people to grow and prosper. There are no requirements that a business owner be committed to serve Christ, but he will have to follow the Lord's principals to be successful long-term, because "Grace Periods" will end for those out of His will.
