What is your Kingdom purpose?

"See to it that no one takes you captive through hollow and deceptive philosophy, which depends on human tradition and the elemental spiritual forces of this world rather than on Christ."
Colossians 2:8

So then, just as you received Christ Jesus as Lord, continue to live your lives in him, rooted and built up in him, strengthened in the faith as you were taught, and overflowing with thankfulness.
Colossians 2:6-7

If you as a business leader are not investing in your own coaching you are surrendering focus, deals, profitability and quality of life.


In Rocky III, when Clubber Lang (played by Mr. T) was asked for his prediction on the fight, he said: "I predict pain!"

It is the same in business. If you are not investing in your own development as a business leader, you are living with more pain than you need to.

For a limited time we are offering Tier1's Ring Of Fire Assessment with full scholarship, no cost to owners of businesses. This is a powerful 3-step process which will provide you with a customized Business Maximizer Report within seven days.
