You’ll start to see opportunities everywhere. Imagine being able to implement your idea more strategically, more effectively than the competition around you! Let’s take this a step further: Imagine the influence you’ll have if you team up with other like-minded, Kingdom-focused, God-centered individuals who want to do great things and you all have superior “vision”.
Being an entrepreneur isn’t for everyone. It requires living in the balance between risk and reward. If you prefer going to a job everyday where you do the same thing, day after day, then maybe this course isn’t for you. Whatever you choose, be sure to do what God has created you to do and with excellence.
Welcome to Entrepreneurship &
Creative Innovation 11.
Introduction by Alisha MacGregor
Hi, I’m Alisha MacGregor. There’s a saying, “You don’t know what you don’t know.” It means, “If you don’t have the knowledge base to be able to see the possibilities that exist for a solution, then you won’t be able to find that solution, no matter how hard you try.”
This past year, I had the opportunity to have Patrick Bell as my teacher. For the first time, I could really see that I, Alisha, could be an innovator and an entrepreneur.
If you’re an entrepreneur, or you think you might be, then you’ll love this course. We’re going to look at entrepreneurs—and Kingdom entrepreneurs—past and present. We’re going to use the cool tools of today’s age—the spaces on the Internet that allow us to research, create, and post our work, comment on each others' work, and interact with each other.
Together we’re going to shake off the dusty model of planning and give it new life—new types of road maps, mind maps, and web apps. Think of it this way: Imagine your community like a 3-D movie. For most people who are ill-equipped, business is a blur. But with a new way of looking at things, you’ll see everything so much more clearly, and you’ll understand business better.
Bring to this course your curiosity, initiative and diligence. We’ll teach you the knowledge and the creative thinking skills. Then as we learn together in a framework of a solid Biblical foundation, we’ll teach you the skills to innovate and to begin to transform your world and influence your generation both economically and spiritually.
One of the biggest things I realized is that for an entrepreneur, the challenges you face can seem overwhelming. If you have someone who has already traveled the road, you can avoid the mistakes. You don’t have to wait until you’re older. You can begin your path to becoming an innovator and an entrepreneur today.
In this course, we’ll explore how easy it is to be a creative innovator. You’ll begin to see solutions where no one else could. You’ll learn to ask questions that no one else is asking, or has not thought of asking. You’ll be able to take new and perhaps very advanced levels of knowledge that aren’t even taught in some business schools and use it to create a framework for solving thorny business problems. In essence, we’re going to expand your field of vision.
