Season 1 Ep 003. The Great Merger - Growing your business by loving people
Creating a business in DoTerra was not the motivation. But when Shannon jumped into this MLM to make a difference in people's lives...to help them with a variety of health issues they struggle with, she found herself in the middle of a thriving business. She has grown her business simply by focusing on loving people and caring about their lives. Others may grow their businesses with a bottom line focus, but for Shannon the thing that has made the difference, the thing that has built a close-knit team has been love. Jesus has made that difference in her life and she is focused on passing that love on to others.

Season 1 Ep 001. The Great Merger - Beginnings
The Great Merger - This is the beginning of our conversation. It's not the first conversation to talk about the fusion of business and ministry, but it is our take on it. As we work to implement these principles in our businesses, we also want to see what others are doing in their businesses, workplaces, and ministries. When you look at your company, do you long for greater purpose and significance? If so, you need to listen in. We begin the deep dive into the merger of business and ministry. How can we use our roles in the workplace to be a light to the world?! Church is not a location. It is not an event we go to on Sunday morning. The Church is the body of Jesus Christ. And those of us who are Christians (Christ followers) need to live out the life of Christ each and every day. Our relationship with Jesus ought to permeate absolutely EVERY area of our lives...and since most of our lives are spent working, we need to find ways to live out our faith even in our work! This is the beginning of the conversation. Many are already working to implement this into their lives. Find out what they are doing and how you can make a significant difference in the world no matter where you are, no matter where you work!
