Don't just sit something!

'I started off with nothing and I've still got most of it left' (Seasick Steve)

NOT one of our properties!!

Working for Christian organisations and Church Fellowships meant that May and I had no pension save the State Pension. Being people who were not willing just to sit and wait for things to happen we took the plunge and remortgaged our home and bought some properties and overnight became dreaded Landlords!

You can read all about it on our site on this site you can see all our properties and learn a little about being an Entrepreneur Landlord.

One overriding reason for this move was a desire to maintain a measure of Christian Ministry. One past bad experience of being in 'paid ministry' and at the mercy and whim of a number of people as to whether you got remuneration or not depending upon whether they liked you or not. This was unacceptable. So to have some sort of independent income to enable ministry to be carried out without being dependent upon others is liberating. A true 'Tentmaking' facility!


The tale of two Project Managers

This is taken from a real situation but illustrates my point exactly. The Charity had little money. Two Projects needed money to function effectively. One Manager complained to the Charity Director that the Charity should give him money and he kept on complaining. The second Manager, knowing there was little or no money to be had said 'Right we need to out and get money and knock on every door until we get it!'. This she did and the Project grew and funding was found.

Now my point is this that the Second Manager was a visionary and Entrepreneur,who despite there being no resources went out and found some! Now this is the difference.  There is a great book called 'Rich Dad,Poor Dad' that illustrates this truth. The book is not a Gospel but it does hit on a fundemental truth. Read it and the Authors associate books!

I would also like to make it clear in case I am misunderstood. This business approach has nothing to do with the modern 'Christan' false teaching called the  'Prosperity gospel' - in fact it is the opposite.

Is that you ‘Scratch’? - I think we starred in it it - no idea what happened to the Yorkshire TV film. Probably banned nowadays due to the title!!
