Today’s show takes us to North Carolina to hear from Don Flow, the visionary business leader of Flow Automotive, which has over 30 dealerships and 1,500 employees. He’s been widely recognized in the Faith Driven Entrepreneur community as an entrepreneur who thinks deeply about the redemptive opportunities for every part of the business—and our conversation only confirmed this reputation! We could go on and on about the things we loved from this conversation, but we think it’s best you listen for yourself. Enjoy!
On this episode, the team spends time with Andy Crouch, partner for theology and culture at Praxis, an organization that works as a creative engine for redemptive entrepreneurship, as well as an accomplished writer and journalist, having authored several books as well as articles published in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and Time Magazine.
God needs our success and our money to do his work on earth, right?? What is the most important question for us to answer: How to give, where to give, why to give? How do we define "net worth"? There may not be a more important topic for a Faith Driven Entrepreneur to tackle, than how to think about generosity.
In this episode, Henry, William, and Rusty explore the topic of expressing gratitude in the workplace. They discuss how we can be more intentional with showing our thanks and appreciation to others as leaders. A starting point for this outpouring is finding a way to be grateful ourselves. When we do this, it resets our perspective and causes us to be grateful for others, their work, and their contribution.
In part two with Vic Ho of Fivestars, Vic expands his thinking with regards to how faith and work come together in his life. For something, completely different, he answers the question, "Which Bible Character did the best job at customer retention" and finally he does a great job of talking about what God has taught him about Sabbath.
This week we are honored to sit down with the man, the myth, the legend, Vic Ho, Co-founder and CEO of Fivestars. Vic is a long-time friend of both Henry and William, so it's true joy to have him on the program.
What's the lifeblood of a business? We would argue that customers are on the top of this list. Well, that's what Vic focuses on day in and day out. Customer acquisition and customer retention.
Fundraising. It’s something that we as entrepreneurs all have to tackle at some point. In this week’s FDE podcast episode, we examine the different issues that are associated with fundraising. You'll hear Henry note at the outset that this particular episode is a bit more weighted for the social entrepreneur or ministry entrepreneur....but I hope you'll agree that the mindset on fundraising is very relevant for entrepreneurs of all types. J. Paul Fridenmaker from Generosity Path joins us for this discussion.
