SORT BY Relevancy
Christians in business or management this is for you.
The parable of the Talents in Matthew 25:24-27, or the equivalent version on the Minas in Luke 19: 12-27, talks about managers who received money to run their boss' business in his absence. Upon his return, he called them to account for their activity and the one who got one (talent / mina) had buried it, and returned it in the exact condition received. The manager who got two, had made a 100% profit of two more; and the manager who got five, also made a 100% profit of five more.
The manager who got one, and returned the one, was berated for being a "lazy, wicked servant", and the one talent he did have, was taken from him and given to the one who had five.
Profit is mandated. Whether you see the word talent as we understand it today, or as money as it is used in the parable, the outcome is the same. God expects his people, his stewards of all He has given us - to earn more with that investment. MORE is the essence of abundance, of profit. We are all uniquely gifted, and those gifts, passions and talents can all be monetized to profitability.

There was a day and age when every young girl was taught to sew in their Home Economics class at school, if not at home with their mom or grandma. But those days have long since gone by; and today, someone that can sew has a world of opportunity to make money working from home. How much money you can make depends on your skill level, equipment, availability to do jobs quickly, and your creativity.
A basic sewing machine and the ability to repair torn seams,replace zippers,hem garments, and/or make simple alterations is enough to get you started.More advanced skills and equipment will be required to offer higher quality services.
You’ll need to start by determining what kind of sewing you enjoy and want to do on a regular basis. You may want to start with something simple, and work your way up as your speed and skill increase.
Here is a short list of sewing projects just to get you thinking about what could bring you a regular source of income:
– Minor repairs and alterations.
– Home decor items (pillows, blankets, curtains, drapes, place mats, napkins).
– Bags, totes, purses.
– Soft children’s toys.
– Doll clothes.
– Receiving blankets.
– Canvas items for boats, yachts, camping.
– Banners (shops that produce printed banners usually need to have raw edges finished).
– Wedding gowns, veils, bridesmaid dresses.
– Prom or fancy party dresses.
– Suits, vests, ties,cumberbunds (cummerbunds).
– Custom outfits for choral groups, dance teams, drill teams, karate classes,period reenactment groups, local sports teams,etc.

Two Heads Are Better Than One
Basically, you want to identify two categories of competition: direct and indirect competitors.
Same Market - Different Product
While direct competitors are trying to reach the same market, an indirect competitor is somebody who is selling something different but targeting the same market. If you're targeting folks with back pain, an indirect competitor might be yoga lovers. They are selling something different to your same customers.
Collaboration is Key
A great way to take advantage of both direct and indirect competitors is to invite them as expert panelists. If somebody sells something totally different than what you would ever think about selling, they can make a great advertiser. So someone could be a panelist, an advertiser, or both.
Also, if you are really ready to start your own on-line business, I encourage you to pick up a copy of my book, Reinventing the Entrepreneur. It will help jumpstart your personal and financial freedom!
