Listen in as I chat with a special guest, Ken Goodwillie, aka my Dad! He talks about his God-given ability to be handy, his history in Christian ministry and how he eventually started his own home improvement business after being laid off in 2007. Ken goes into detail about how Christians can share Christ with others in the workplace and use their jobs and businesses to honor God. He also highlights the logistics behind starting a business and what it takes to be successful. Don't forget to check out the links that correspond to our conversation below!
