Overview

He didn’t work for money. He was willing to walk away. He invested his emotions wisely. He did sweat the small stuff.

Beyond work, beyond entrepreneurism, there is “spiritreneurism”—work that allows you to do well by doing right. In Jesus, Entrepreneur, Laurie Beth Jones, bestselling author of Jesus, CEO, shows you how to find soul satisfaction in your work.

Jones shows that there is no contradiction between earning a comfortable living even as you use your job to promote your deepest spiritual and personal beliefs. How exactly is this possible? By sharing timeless wisdom from the Bible and anecdotes from her own life and consulting career, as well as tales from the best and worst work situations in today’s rapidly changing business environment, she reveals how you can inspire yourself and your coworkers to use your highest gifts to benefit the bottom line.

A genius at making the powerful familiar, Jones offers a commandingly fresh and compelling case for Jesus as a role model for modern times. Rich with humor, exercises, meditations, and case histories, Jesus, Entrepreneur is essential reading for those seeking to put their spirituality to practical use.

    Loved it so much I've bought 7 copies!

    A friend loaned me his copy and within the first chapter I knew I needed my own copy. I have since bought a total of 7 copies to give to friends who are Entrepreneurs. Laurie Beth Jones does an amazing job of weaving stories with scripture in a simple understandable and yet inspirational way. The questions at the end of each chapter are very thought provoking. Now that I've read it straight through over the past week, I now plan to go a chapter a week and focus on really answering the questions. Hopefully my wife and I will do it together.

    Great for Entrepreneur's and Business Owners

    You can always count on the fact that when Jesus walked this earth, he covered all the bases in terms of what we will go through on this earth. This includes our businesses and work environment. This book clearly demonstrates what he did in the Bible and how we can relate it to what we are going through especially in this day and time. It is a very easy read and very enlightening.

    Interesting twist

    Laurie Beth Jones has prepared a most interesting twist on entreprenuerialism. While Jesus was not a business person, the character traits he demonstrated certainly present the ideal for success in the market place.
