91: Six Mistakes To Avoid In Your Business and Leadership

Every Christian business owner and leader makes mistakes--it’s inevitable and part of the learning process. But there are some mistakes that you can and should avoid if at all possible.


In this episode of our Business Series, Holly and I are discussing 6 different mistakes that Christian Business owners and leaders should avoid. Some of these mistakes are things that we’ve learned the hard way, and others are ones that we’ve seen people doing and want to avoid ourselves.


While we are talking mostly about business, these mistakes can apply to leaders of any kind. Be sure to listen to the end so that you can hear our “Take Action” section and make some changes based on what we share.

Key Quotes from the Episode:

"Confidence is a quiet resting in the truth of God and who He is and who He has made me to be." - Esther Littlefield

"I don't think that working to grow your business or an audience is wrong in and of itself. But it's when the numbers become an idol or a distraction from doing the work that God has asked you to do that it is a problem." - Esther Littlefield


"Just because God has called you to something does not mean it's going to be easy." - Holly Cain


"One of the enemy's strongest weapons is isolation." - Holly Cain
