“The way to get started is to quit talking and begin doing,” encouraged Walt Disney, founder of the Walt Disney Company. Oftentimes, the effort required to launch and sustain a successful business or ministry discourages most burgeoning entrepreneurs and leaders from realizing their dreams. To achieve positive outcomes – and reduce the risk of burnout – you must minimize your efforts. The most effective way to minimize your efforts is accomplished through a robust strategy. As the adage states, “If you fail to plan, you plan to fail.” From marketing and advertising, people management, and budgeting and cash flow management, your strategy drives every aspect of your business or ministry. For those of you currently operating in the entrepreneurial or evangelical space, you may be duplicating your efforts in certain areas. Not only does this stifle your effectiveness as a leader, it hinders your productivity and earning potential. Discover how to reduce your risks, stress, and fatigue when you attend the International Pastors & Leadership (IP&L) Conference. In this way, you’ll be armed with real solutions to minimize your efforts for the greatest impact in your business or ministry.
