Entrepreneurship is only made possible by the creative impulse that God gave us. I asked myself if scripture had any examples of successful business owners or entrepreneurs and in fact, it provides several examples. We’ll start with Abraham. An amazing leader, trainer and a person who knew how to make the best of his situation. ⠀
