The definition of entrepreneur is found on Wikipedia and it begins with:
"An entrepreneur is a person who operates a new enterprise or venture and assumes some accountability for the inherent risks."
So, I'm coining the term Christopreneur to be defined as:
"A Christopreneur is a person who operates a new Christ centered enterprise or venture and assumes some accountability for the inherent risks."
So, why am I a Christopreneur?
Frankly, it's because I love Jesus Christ and believe that producing or recommending quality Christian products to earn capital to do the Lord's work in helping the poor and sick is better than asking for mere donations.
Here's what a Christopreneur is:
- It is someone who runs his/her business with a Christ like mentality. "What would Jesus do?" is not an afterthought, but the modus operandi of the organization.
- It is someone who sells a quality product, and channels the profits to performing God's work.
That's what a Christopreneur is, but here's what it's not:
- It's not someone who lines their own pockets by preying on gullible Christians and non-believers.
- It's not someone who doesn't give back to the community.
Are there other Christopreneurs out there? Oh yeah! And thank God for that!
Agape to you,
