Godly Business Women

Another successful KBWomen Radio show yesterday with special guest Chicke Fitzgerald! As co-hosts, we enjoy hearing from other Christian women in business from around the country to see what God is doing in their lives and what knowledge they can impart to others. Chicke is a travel industry expert and radio show host herself, as well as being a small business owner and Christian wife and mother. Her life is full, as many of us can relate to, but she remains strongly connected to God.

As businesswomen, we need knowledge and networking. As Christians, we need fellowship and encouragement. Consider becoming involved with the Koinonia Business Women's organization, where faith and business merge!

Great Local Businesswomen's Meeting!

Hello friends,
We had a wonderful time at our live Olympia Koinonia Business Women's meeting last night. Welcome to new attenders Chris Creekpaum and Diana Wise! Our discussion touched on what Christian businesswomen want and need, how we can create opportunities to network together, more about KBWomen Radio, what business skill building topics are of interest right now, as well as answering individuals' questions about their current business challenges.

Tammy and I met last weekend to hash out some upcoming plans for the Koinonia Business Women's organization. Although we are both busy entrepreneurs with other ventures, Koinonia Business Women is becoming something we must focus on (and want to!!) to develop the organization's huge, exciting potential. This is truly where our hearts are! Out of our meeting (and last night's meeting) came several things:

  • Koinonia Business Women will become a membership-based organization. Several added-value benefits are listed below.
  • Spend more time promoting members on, e.g., every member will have profiles on (search engines seem to like our site and current members have been 'found' in search results because of their ads in our *BLING* e-zine or because they were listed as a 'featured member' in *BLING*).
  • More emphasis on networking with each other.
  • We may create workshops for members, by members, to attend free (others can pay to get in) on important business topics, skills or other fun business expo events.
  • Members will receive audio files with great faith-based business info from experts who we interview.
  • KBWomen Radio may switch to 45 min rather than 30. KBWomen Radio has some AMAZING guests scheduled for 2009.
  • Create specific business owner groups to do deeper, individualized business strategizing.
  • Set up an online prayer request system.
  • Have a "members only" online community.
  • Start our live group #2 in the Tacoma area.
  • In the future, we will launch KBWomen's groups nationwide/worldwide.
Thoughts? Comments? We'd love to get some feedback on these ideas. Even if you are reading this from somewhere other than Western Washington, there are ways that you can be involved with Koinonia Business Women! Sign up to receive our e-Zine called *BLING*, listen to KBWomen Radio (schedule), sign up for our business builders mastermind/business strategies group (meets via webinar/teleseminar), advertise your business or service on KBWomen Radio, in *BLING* or on our website, or consider starting your own Koinonia Business Women's group meeting in your area (coming soon). No expertise required, you just need to invite people and love on them!

Vision Boards - Faith Boards

…They shall write a description of it with a view to their inheritance. Joshua 18:4 (KJV)

As believers in God we are called to write things down, make them plain and have faith that ‘it’ will come to pass. Notice though that there is an action involved, before inserting your faith, the action is writing it down. We are shown examples all through the word where the instruction to writing out our course, (vision, life-map, and view) is key to having a fulfilling life.

Vision Board step 1:
1. Start with 2009: When we start small, with a single year, we begin to open up our minds and space for more. Getting totally clear on the shorter term helps to evolve the plan for the long term. Focus on what you are believing God to do in 2009 for your family, business and life.

1 Kings 3:10 ... “And if you stay on course, keeping your eye on the life-map and the God-signs as your father David did, I'll also give you a long life." (Message)

What a powerful word, not sure about any of you but…I am believing for a long life and if keeping my eye on my “life-map” is part of what will bring that to pass for me, I darn well better know what that map looks like! Also, if God has given me the clear instruction in his word, and I know His word to be the living truth, whom am I to sidestep the simple action of writing out my life-map and making it plain?

Vision Board step 2:
Write it down (in whatever style is most comfortable) the vision that God has given you for 2009. You can journal, write single words, short sentences and even poems – the idea is to get it on paper.

Stay tuned for more!
