One day as Jesus was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers--Simon, also called Peter, and Andrew--throwing a net into the water, for they fished for a living. Jesus called out to them, "Come, follow me, and I will show you how to fish for people!" And they left their nets at once and followed him. — Matthew 4:18-20
As you build your business, one of the most important tasks you will face will be building your team. That was also true with Jesus: He had only three years to put a team together that would be able to carry on after He ascended to heaven. And He was building a team that would accomplish something that had never been done before. So, here is a powerful truth: God is calling you with a one of a kind calling as well.
Every day things happen around us that have an impact on our lives, but often we do not know the full ramification of these things as they happen. The truth is, many opportunities to receive the full blessing of the Lord are missed because of our disobedience. Not disobedience in outward rebellion, but the failure to quickly obey His daily promptings.

I was talking with the author of the book, "God is my CEO" and he was telling me about the problem he had in getting the book published. As I recall, 20 publishers turned him down before one would finally “take a chance” on such a project. The fact is, the book became a best seller.
