We need to come up with your business idea.
  1. Come up with a business idea.
    1. What type of products do you want to sell?
    2. Who is your ideal customer?
  2. Pick a business name.
    1. Think about the types of products that you want to sell. If you want to offer many different types of products, think of a name that is broad enough to cover multiple things.For example, you wouldn't name your business "Everything Ice Cream" if you plan to sell ice cream, Legos, custom artwork, baked goods, etc.

Here's the fun part! Take the list of the products that you want to sell and for starters, pick the EASIEST & QUICKEST products. Start creating! For starters, just stick with up to three items. You can always expand later! As you begin to develop your product, keep track of how much your materials cost, how long it takes you to create each item, and how much you want to sell them for.

Pre-Commit Your Offering to God 0% Complete 0/1 Tasks completed

Description
Decide ahead-of-time what portion of your good that you want to offer back to Him. God gives us a promise in His Word that if we give him 10% He will bless the rest. When God blesses something, there is always increase. So this is a no brainer! Whatever you give back to God, it is He alone who will pay you back! And He always pays according to His riches in heaven. (And that's a lot of riches!) Be sure that you ask God what He wants you to give. Would you give away the first product perhaps? Or would you give away a 10th of your proceeds? Do not compare what you give with someone else's giving—just give whatever He tells you! Also be cheerful in this giving. If you feel sad or upset that you have to give, then simply just do not good. God always gives us a free choice! He is not making you do anything. He is simply saying, "But if you do give...then I will give you this." It's a trade. You choose!
The first of the ripe fruits and all the gifts brought to the Lord will go to the priests. The first batch of dough must also be given to the priests so the Lord will bless your homes. - Ezekiel 44:30

    1. First Message - Post 2 Weeks Before
    2. Second Reminder - Post 1 Week Before
    3. Third Reminder - Post the Day Before the Event
