Episode Info: On this episode, Christopher West shares more about his entrepreneurial journey. He starts with his desire to pursue a career as a musician. He talks about some of the key moments and people that have got him to where he is today. One thing that i was really excited about with this podcast is our discussion that I think is very relevant for Christian entrepreneurs, or anyone that is really motivated and inspired on pursuing greatness in the world, but also being very aware of God’s plan for our lives. Christopher says some excellent things on here regarding the blending discernment our passion to have an impact on the world.

The brick walls are not there to keep us out; the brick walls are there to give us a chance to show how badly we want something. The brick walls are there to stop the people who don’t want it badly enough. They are there to stop the other people.”Book recommendations The Way of Imperfection: Holiness for the Poor by Andre DaigneaultThirsting For Prayer by Jacques Philippe.All other books by Fr.
