Need more money?

“Work must provide the opportunity for spiritual and personal growth as well as financial success.  The irony is that if it does not provide all three, there will be a natural pressure to keep the financial rewards low.  The search for money alone will always be self-defeating.”    Dan Miller

Did your work express your faith today?

Too often we create an artificial dichotomy in which we divide what is spiritual and what is “secular.”  Personally, I think if we are spiritual beings, then everything in our lives is spiritual.  I’m not a person of faith for 58 minutes on Sunday morning and then just a worker bee the rest of the week.  My work should be an expression of my faith.  And trust me, what I’m doing on Thursday morning tells people more about what I believe and value than looking at the back of my head for a few minutes on Sunday.

Should I stay or should I go?

Would your advice to Don be different than mine? “Dan, I’ve been working as an IT network administrator for the past 17 years which I greatly dislike.  I currently make a little more than $40K on a salary.  I have lost all passion at my job and dread going to work every Monday morning.  A few years ago I had a taste of self-employment when I was not employed full-time and greatly desire that freedom to work at home again.  I currently have a part-time business and make close to the income I make on my job.
