Going the distance in small business

 

Managing to go the long haul in small business may be one of the most difficult things to accomplish. The number of small business start-ups that don’t make it past the first five years is astounding.

In the last few weeks, I have noted the retail and manufacturing locations of a small start-up for lease indicating they didn’t make it. That’s unfortunate.

This particular start-up was like many others. A guy had an idea. He saw a niche that he didn’t think was being filled and he thought he could make it work. «Read the rest of this article»

Children’s Faith

 

A Devotional By Brother Shepherd

Jesus speaks to childrenIn the scriptures in Luke 9:48, Jesus speaks about children. That verse reads this way in the KJV, “And said unto them, Whosoever shall receive this child in my name receiveth me: and whosoever shall receive me receiveth him that sent me: for he that is least among you all, the same shall be great.” Jesus speaks about children in a lot of different places and how we are supposed to be like children.

It can be a little confusing a lot of the time, but when he speaks, he’s talking about faith. If you ever observe a child and their parents, a child usually believes everything their parents tell them because they love and trust their parents. Christ wants us to love God the same way! Each day we should trust God and live the way he wants us to and that pleases the Father.

I have found in my own life that I am happier, more content, and satisfied when I trust my Heavenly Father. As this verse tells us that, we should receive a child in his name. He is telling us that we have a duty to less mature Christians than we are and that duty is to show them our child like faith as we trust God. An old song that some of the lyrics say, Trust and obey for there’s no other way to be happy in Jesus. Let’s all live to please our Heavenly Father.

This is Bro. Shep asking you to think about it.

Matthew 28:18-20

New study shows filling a shopping cart with store brands saves an average of 30 percent on groceries

Consumer ReportsYonkers, NY — Store brand products can compete with their name-brand counterparts and save shoppers more than a thousand dollars a year on grocery bills, according to a new study from Consumer Reports. In 21 head-to-head taste matchups, national brands won seven times, the store brand came out on top in three instances, and the remainder resulted in ties.

“The study reaffirms that store brands are worth a try,” said Tod Marks, senior projects editor for Consumer Reports. “For a family that spends $100.00 a week on groceries, the savings could add up to more than $1,500 a year.” «Read the rest of this article»
