When I began my career in sales in 1975 on straight commission selling life insurance, I had no idea where the Lord would take me. I started selling copiers in 1976 and I remember sitting in my car outside a business for 45 minutes in the Canadian winter, trying to get the nerve to make just one cold call, and then driving off to visit an existing customer because I was too afraid to make that call. But God began to teach me, even then.
In 1986 when I moved to America, I once again found myself in a job selling copiers and having the usual nervousness of being back in sales, on straight commission and desperately needing to succeed. Maybe you can relate? It was then that I earnestly sought God’s wisdom as it pertained to sales and began applying what I found.
At the end of my first quarter, the results were so astounding they were hard to believe. I was selling one out of one and achieved 3 1/2 times the sales goal that I had never seen anyone hit. By the end of the year, I had set a sales record and was promoted to sales manager. That’s when we found out whether the skills were transferable. Ten months later, my team sales were up 430%. I was definitely on to something.
I continued pursuing God and His ways, discovering incredible wealth in His Word and in the things He has made. As word got out through books (over a dozen), audio teaching series, radio and television, I began getting invitations to speak at universities, corporate settings and churches. All the while God continuing to reveal things to me.
Now at this phase of my life, He has let me know that He has much more to show me and my job is to teach that to others. That is why I have worked so hard to launch the MPI Christian Business Institute and tomorrow (Tuesday) we finally get to open the doors for registration. I am bursting with anticipation of the things I know God has in store for you because I know that besides all the revelation He has already given me, there is a fresh new wave beginning to come.
I believe the time we live in is critical. Those of you called to the marketplace need to be equipped to prosper and capture resources, not only to get out of debt and from under the financial pressure, but to put the enemy on the run through your excessive generosity in service of our King and His great commission! As I invest myself into you through this school it will be life changing for me and more so for you, so go here to register for the webinar and pick the time that is best for you. I am offering three different time choices.
