Serve 2 Win, the first in a series of business guidebooks by entrepreneur coach and serial business owner, Mitch Durfee, offers an unusual approach to launching a small business. The single most successful basis for any entrepreneurial endeavor is that of being of service. Not only does a service-to-others approach attract customers and clients, it rewards business practitioners with an unshakeable sense of purpose, undergirded by the inherent happiness of using their expertise to assist others in need of help. With service as the foundational principle, Durfee outlines the eight steps, (which are also tools), that helped him launch three successful small businesses, and coach over 500 clients to launch their enterprises. These steps are key in creating and sustaining a business, and they include Having the Right Values, Setting Goals, Creating a Support Network, Cultivating a Positive Mental Attitude, Taking Action, Protecting Your Time, Building Your (small business) Team, and Positioning Yourself to Win. The Serve 2 Win guidebook offers an enthusiastic, but reality-based approach to business building, while helping would-be entrepreneurs gain confidence in their ability to realize big dreams. The audiobook offers a well-tested, step-by-step methodology that, while challenging, (the way any new endeavors are), is within reach of all those who want to own their own business, and, as a result, direct their own life. 1.

Everything in life serves a greater purpose. Take the mighty oak, for example. It serves much more than just its own needs; it literally serves the whole of nature. It´s a nesting place and home for countless birds and insects. It´s a source of valuable shade on hot summer days. And it supplies us all with life-giving oxygen. In short, the Oak plays a vital role in helping nature to sustain and perfect her creations, which is one of the many greater purposes it serves. No matter where you look in nature, you´ll find this exact same relationship.But what about in our individual lives? What about those tough problems and crises that show up from time to time? What purpose do they serve? It takes a long time to realize it, but even the most difficult moments in our lives are intended to serve a greater purpose - a much greater purpose. In fact, their real purpose extends far beyond the circumstances of any particular problem.Unfortunately we live in a culture that has lost sight of this one great purpose. And because we don´t understand what it is, when those really big challenges come our way, we find ourselves pushing away what life wants to give us. We actually find ourselves not wanting our own life. Fortunately, we have an undiscovered power that can literally transform the way we relate to these difficult moments and, in the process, transform our entire experience of life.When you finally discover what life has been trying to give you - what it´s been trying to accomplish through these moments - your life will never be the same. And instead of feeling troubled and anxious over what life brings, you´ll find yourself living with a relaxed ease and willing spirit unlike anything you´ve ever known. 1. Language: English.

Over the last 30 years, many influential church leaders and church planters in America have adopted various models for reaching unchurched people. An ´´attractional” model will seek to attract people to a local church. Younger leaders may advocate a more ´´missional” approach, in which believers live and work among unchurched people and intentionally seek to serve like Christ. While each of these approaches have merit, something is still missing, something even more fundamental to the mission of the church: discipleship.Making disciples - helping people to trust and follow Jesus - is the church’s God-given mandate. Devoted disciples attract people outside the church because of the change others see in their Christ-like lives. And discipleship empowers Christians to be more like Christ as they intentionally develop relationships with nonbelievers.DiscipleShift walks you through five key ´´shifts” that churches must make to refocus on the biblical mission of discipleship. These intentional changes will attract the world and empower your church members to be salt and light in their communities. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jim Denison.
