We are so excited to get to share today’s interview with Sanyin Siang. She is the executive director of The Coach K Center on Leadership and Ethics, and in addition to sharing what makes Coach K such an excellent coach and leader (hint: it has to do with enabling greatness instead of chasing it), she also told us why having 1 million followers on LinkedIn isn’t the thing she wants to be remembered for. It was so encouraging to hear her share how her identity and value is found first and foremost in what God says is true of her—that she is a beloved child of God. We think her energy and passion is contagious and hope you get a chance to listen in!
Today we’re just outside of Austin, Texas connecting with Mark McLain. Mark likes to refer to himself as an accidental entrepreneur. He didn’t grow up as the lemonade stand kid but has since gone on to start two different companies. Today, he leads SailPoint, an identity management business started in 2005, that is publicly traded with a market cap around $2 Billion and 1,200 team members across 33 different companies. Mark shares his powerful story of being an “Accidental Entrepreneur” and how that path is more common than we think.
Today’s episode marks the start of something new. We’re launching a brand new website and podcast for the Faith Driven Investor. This episode, and the entire Faith Driven Investor podcast series, is for fund managers, investors, business owners and pastors who believe that God owns it all and who care deeply about how we steward our investments for financial return and gospel-centered transformation. Listen in to hear Henry Kaestner and Aimee Minnich share what God has been doing in this movement and what’s to come.
Join William and Henry in the Mile-High city as they talk to Jeff Haanen from the Denver Institute for Faith and Work. His article, God of the Second Shift, made waves in the faith and work world, and we’re excited to have him on our podcast today to talk more about how we can move this conversation around theology and business from the corner office to the manufacturing floor. Tune in to hear what Jeff has to share about what a theology of work means for those in the working class.
Today, we’re in Kansas City with Tom Nelson. Tom is the visionary pastor of a multi-site church called Christ Community, and he’s been widely recognized in the Faith Driven Entrepreneur community for his book, Work Matters. He also serves on the board of The Gospel Coalition and is President of Made to Flourish—a network of pastors trying to establish what it looks like to be a Monday church. What we love about Tom, and why we had him on today, is that he is working on a replicable model for what it looks like for the average church to affirm and encourage entrepreneurs. Join Henry, William, and Rusty to hear how Tom’s work could affect the way you worship, the way you work, and even the way you live.
Today we learned that Sam Walton was persistent (very persistent), that you don’t have to know a lot about baseball to successfully own a Major League Baseball team, and that stories are best told by the one who have lived them. And that’s exactly who Drayton McLane is—a serial entrepreneur with a knack for storytelling. Pull up a chair, get comfortable, and prepare to hear story after story of what it’s like to be an entrepreneur for over half a century.
In this episode we’re on the road in Oklahoma City, connecting with Steve Green, President of Hobby Lobby.

Hear what brought about this world class exhibit, as well as the entrepreneurial lessons Steve learned along the way.

Toxic people, toxic environments and all other possible permutations of how toxicity can be expressed in an organization is the subject of today’s episode. Rusty rests the responsibility of toxic organizations firmly on the shoulders of the founder and William believes that faith driven leaders can still be guilty of making a mess of culture.
