But thou shalt remember the LORD thy God: for it is he that giveth thee power to get wealth, that he may establish his covenant which he sware unto thy fathers, as it is this day. (Deuteronomy 8:18).
How does success in business begin? This is one question in the heart of many people. Do I begin the path to a successful business by having all I need already available? Let's say you want to own a poultry farm with over  2,000 birds that are laying eggs for you so you can be one of the top distributors of eggs in your state. The question is how do I start this business that involves huge capital investment?

The truth is you cannot just start a business with 2,000 birds when you have not been in the business before, what experience have you gathered that will make the business a success? Do you have the money to start such a business that needs a lot of capital investment? 

Most times having a business idea such as the one stated above can look impossible. So, most times we give up on our business ideas. We don't do anything and we give up.

The beginning of a Successful business in whatever  business idea or vision  you have is to start form where you are and with what you have.

The population of human beings on earth today is over 7 billion. Now, when God began to create he started first by creating  a man called Adam and later He created Eve out of the man. He did not start by creating over 7 billion people at once. You see even the Almighty God started small because of for you to have billions of people on earth things have to be in place. The things that have to be in place have to be invented by man because man has been given the earth to have dominion over. Man at the time of creation did for have the capacity to manage lots of people.  It takes procreation for man to be born, so the process of procreating is the reason there are billions of people on earth today. Remember God told them to be  fruitful and multiply (procreate your kind), this is the principle behind the growth of the human population. God started small but was not thinking or seeing small. He shared with Abraham His vision for the population of the human race.
And he brought him forth abroad, and said, Look now toward heaven, and tell the stars, if thou be able to number them: and he said unto him, So shall thy seed be. (Genesis 15:5).
This means that God has seen that the human race will be so numerous, we have over 7 billion people presently on earth can you count how many have died. God saw it from the beginning and shared with Father Abraham who was His friend and through whom he blessed the human race. This is why He had to make Father Abraham see what He sees about the many people that will be on earth so that Father Abraham can believe God for His promise and also run with the vision of God for humanity. This is what we do as humans when we make our staff to understand the vision and mission of our business, so that they can run with it.

God's principle for starting a business is for you to start where you are and with what you have but don't remain where you are, see beyond where you are and lay hold of that vision until it becomes a reality for you.

Please note the following while starting a business:
  • You start first in your mind, you must get your mind first to be ready for what you are about to do before you begin to look for capital. You get your  mindset ready by study, brainstorming, meditating on God's word about business and praying

Your mindset determines the settling of success in anything you do. 

  •  Now you want to have a poultry with 2,000 laying birds. You have to start with what you have and where you are. The Prophet Elisha asked the woman what she had in her house and she told him that it is a pot of  oil (2 Kings 4:1-2).  This was what God multiplied to take her away from poverty to prosperity. 

Start with what you have by seeking knowledge about your business. A business perish for lack of knowledge.
  • Research about the business, know how much you need to start. Learn about the business and check if the demand is high and the degree of competition in your area before you start. Know the principles that need to be followed in making your business a success. 
  • Have a brand, this is what makes your business different from others.
  • If you don't have the money to finance it, you can start working temporarily to save some money for the purpose of investment in your business idea. You can also get capital from friends and family and lastly you can get a loan from a bank. I personally don't like the collection of loans for anything.You can also partner to get the capital to start the business. Most importantly if He God has laid this business in your heart, then trust Him for Him to supply the resources you need to start this business.

Don't start big, when you don't have the capacity to handle such business. Start with what you know you have enough mental, financial and spiritual capacity to manage. Lack of this truth is the reason for failure in many business.
Build to the top, so you can remain at the top. If you start from the top and you don't have all it takes to remain there, then you will see yourself at the ground level.
  • Advertise your business to people around you, make them know what you are doing, so that when they need it they can come and buy form you. Use social media to advertise your product and services.
  • Be positive about your business. Believe in your business and believe that it will succeed. When your business is not going in the right direction don't lament, speak to your business with the word of God. Pray for your business. Impact lives with your business.

Business is for solving problems not for creating problems.

If you want to start a business don't just wait to get everything ready because you will never get everything ready. You get things ready when you step out in faith to start something. God desires you to prosper, don't forget it is He that gives you the power to create wealth.

You can accept Him now if you have not done so. If you will like to do this, please say this prayer:
Lord Jesus Christ I acknowledge that I am a sinner, I believe in your death and resurrection. I ask you to forgive me my sins, I reject the devil and all his works and l welcome the Holy Spirit into my life. I declare today I am born again and I am a child of God in Jesus name. Amen.
If you just said that prayer I welcome you to God's family. Look for a Bible believing church where God's word is taught and fellowship there.
