Welcome to EntreLife!
EntreLife is a series of sessions focused on providing the tools and framework needed to launch and grow a blessed business. Sessions are divided into four segments that will be 3-4 sessions each and will focus on the different stages of the entrepreneurial journey. The first segment is a foundational overview of Business as Mission (BAM). The second is for dreamers looking to discover and launch their own business idea. The third is for starters who are working to get their business up and running. The fourth and final segment is for builders who want to grow their business to the next level.
Sessions will be on Thursday evenings from 6:30pm-8pm at Christian Life Memphis in the Student Room starting on January 9th.
We believe that together, we can go from business as usual to Business as Mission (BAM) and see the kingdom of God furthered by strong entrepreneurs who are connected to purpose and live in the flow of blessing.
