Tuesday: One-on-One Business Consulting (Day 1)

In the One-on-One Business Consulting session, Lori Threatt, Laurie Smith, Mark Muse, and Demetrus Evans echoed the “No Fear Here” sentiment and had participants read 2 Timothy 1:7 at the beginning of their session: “For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.” The participants included 27 business owners from IT, retail, food industry, and construction.

Laurie taught participants how to identify trends in their community and country and how to turn those trends into business opportunities. For example, if foreigners are pouring into Haiti to help, it will be difficult for them to help if they don't know Kreyol. Therefore, there will be more opportunities to teach Kreyol. There would also be more opportunities to build hotels, open restaurants, as well as sell more souvenirs.
