How Faith In God Changed My Business and Transformed My Life
Hi, my name is Chi Chi Okezie, owner of SIMPLEnetworking. I launched SN in 2006 to use business networking to build cultural awareness and provide diversity training.
Changing The Business Model
Approximately nine years ago, I faced the tough decision of changing over my business from a translational company to a consulting company. It was a tough decision because it was not in my business plan. Of course, this was a difficult decision since networking was new to me and I had no clients for the new business model. If this updated business model were to fail, I would lose my existing business’ profits.
While I was hesitant to do so, I decided to trust God and believe He was able to give me an idea for a profitable business model. If this was His will, I would trust Him to to make the necessary provisions to sustain me and grow the business.
