Hey CIB!  I haven't been here since maybe November, wow, I've missed  some great content.  I did hire a business coach and that has kept me pretty busy.  Here's my question for you...  Where do you network in your community?  Do you mingle with other Christian Businesses in real life, and if so, where do you find them?  My coach has challenged me to actually get out of the house, and I have no idea where to go...

I am being bombarded with hate mail this week...  Since my customers are primarily Christians, it's a very rare thing for me to deal with.  I have to think that I'm being tested or something, because this is really, really out of character.  How do you handle irate customers, when jumping up and down and turning flip flops for them just spurs on mean and angry responses?

HUGS, Carla. I've had days like that.

I immediately outlined what to do in the future.

...One thing you can do is state that you have a policy for what you give. And sweetly but firmly offer a product or service. Don't say "Can I offer you..." because you don't need permission to ask for money for your work. You can also state that a worker is worth their wage, and a gift isn't an indication that your work is free.

If you have several free gifts being offered through different channels, you might put together a page where they can get to all of them with a password, and have that go out in an automated email.

As for security, just have your security certificate ready and be willing to talk to your developer, the company that certifies your site, and the company that runs your cart. Then report back with your findings. The more third-party proof you give, the more likely they are to listen.

Unfortunately, usually once someone has something like that in their head you can't convince them otherwise. So once you've done everything you can, pray for them, forgive them, and move on.

Need your opinion...  I'm working on a new "freebie" for my website and I need to know which title would grab your attention better...
"30 Day Angel Challenge"  or  "Daily Dose of Biblically Based Behavior"

30 Day Angel Challenge. I think (+Carey Green might have said this) that this will appeal to those that are into the "Angel" term and for that I say go for it!

Just curious . . . What are your feelings about hiring a business coach?  I'm sure there are many business coaches in this group and I already know what you think about hiring a coach, but I want to hear from people that are thinking about hiring a coach, or have hired a coach and hear how it has helped or hurt your business.  I have an opportunity to join a group, that I think will be very beneficial to my business, but I am scared.  It is expensive and I'm worried that once I've leaped, I won't be able to make the rest of the payments.  I have already had a small glimpse of what can be with this coach.  I had a VIP day and the results from just that one day increased my sales and my momentum, but that was last spring and the "stuff" has settled down.  Now I am ready to make a decision to continue with them, but I'm so so so scared.  I've prayed about it and still can't seem to shake this fear.  In my heart I feel like this is the next step to help me get to the plan that God has for my life, but in my head, I can't stop thinking about the risk.  Do I go for it and risk everything with the potential of really turning my business around, or do I sit where I'm at and feel my way through and basically stay where I am?

I agree... the coach has to fit you. I'm going to be offering some coaching soon - which I'll call "Character coaching." It's going to be aimed at helping folks be the kind of person inside that can fuel success on the outside.

Anyway, I'd say pray it through, talk with folks (as you're doing), and step out in faith based on what you receive.

I'm wondering if anyone here has any experience with copyright laws?  I have found one of my designs has been copied and mass produced.  It's not exactly like my design, because it is flat instead of dimensional and the flag that it bears is different flags, but the design is beyond a doubt, mine.  Any advice on what to do about this?

Its obvious it was copied, I know copyright laws are very complicated especially with something that has been duplicated a million times like angels. I pray God will find a resolve for you. God Bless.

Love this article.  Interesting how God speaks to us through our daily chores.
Well tomorrow is Sunday. I'm getting ready for guests and ironing my tablecloths and tea cloths. Before I tell you the amazing things God taught me while I ironed, here's a little tutorial on how to achieve the most beautiful...
