Are you considering making a business decision that is a bit RISKY? What does God tell the Christian real estate agent about taking risks? Are we supposed to be conservative or are we called to be risk-takers?
After 11 years of selling real estate and over 1100 homes sold I can tell you I have learned a lot on this subject. I have hit home runs and I have made big mistakes. Hiring consultants, investments in marketing, and hiring staff are only a few of the many tough decisions facing us every day. There is a lot I am going to cover on this subject but for now I wanted to share with you a post I made the other day on my personal blog about this topic and how it relates to us as Christians.

They believe it could be “the opportunity of a lifetime”. And while I do believe there is value in a continual preparing of our hearts and minds and life so that we can be better prepared to take advantages of opportunities, I would like to present to you what I have learned about opportunities.
Today I am going to share with you what I believe has been the single most influential and powerful business principle that I have relied upon during the last 10+ years of being in business. I think about this one principle nearly every day. It has become a filter to help me focus on what is truly significant, not only in business but also personally.
