We're wrapping up another exciting season and eager to answer your questions! As always, we've selected 4 questions we've received via social media, email, and phone. Let's dive right in! 

 

1) The economy is tight, with no strong indicators of improving soon. How should I be thinking about this as a business owner, in the face of that?

 

2) In these changing times there are so many conflicting messages about how to market my coaching business. How do I know what will be really worth my time and effort? 

 

3) I saw on social media that you are Pa Ingles in the musical Little House on the Prairie, along with several members of your family... How in the world do you find the time to do something like that? You must be incredibly busy... how do you work in starring in a musical?

 

4) I was planning to do some public speaking to grow my coaching business but it's hard to find groups meeting in person. Should I just host a webinar?

Life rarely unfolds in a linear fashion, and choosing a niche is no exception. The path to clarity often comes as a result of listening to God, obediently taking the steps He lays out, learning from each step, and then beginning again. In this episode, Kim Avery transparently shares about the huge transition she is making in her business journey, and some of the lessons she is learning along the way.

 

Tune in for insights on:

 

  • How to know and understand the needs of the marketplace

 

  • Ways to identify and move through any internal resistance

 

  • Practical considerations when making key niching decisions

 

 

About Kim Avery

 

The start of Kim's entrepreneurial journey was anything but smooth. While the client work went amazingly well, unfortunately, the business-building did not. In her first year as an entrepreneur, she wasted hundreds of hours and burned through thousands of dollars, yet saw only mediocre results.

 

There had to be a better way. So, she pored through Scripture searching for God's principles and provision for today's busy entrepreneurs. What she discovered was a treasure trove of specific, actionable promises and an ongoing opportunity to fully partner with our all-loving, all-powerful, and all-knowing CEO, almighty God.

 

She has now turned those discoveries into a best-selling book, The Prayer Powered Entrepreneur: 31 Days to Building Your Business with Less Stress and More Joy.

 

It’s now her joy to help others build (or rebuild) their lives and businesses in a completely different way: God-shaped, grace-infused, actively walking in God’s good and perfect provision for them.
