Business and Faith mix it up

Everyone tip-toes around this time of year trying not to spread mis-directed Christmas cheer, (Oops, did I say "Christmas?" I meant holiday...)

But, the presence of Christians (ie, those who celebrate Christmas) in the business world are hard to overlook.

Guy Kawasaki points out that some of the best speakers are found in the pulpit in Evangelism: Eternal Life, Forgiveness, and Operating Systems.

One of my favorite authors and speakers is local businessman John Beckett. He wrote Loving Monday. Instead of grinding it out until Friday and living only for weekends, John saw how his work can be filled with meaning and purpose. The key was integrating his work and beliefs. As a result, both grow - along with his love for Mondays. (You can even read it online).

Nor did it end there... His newest book is Mastering Monday: A Guide to Integrating Faith and Work.

Looking for a different approach this year? I highly recommend these books!
