Whether you’re just getting started in business or have a few years under your belt, this is where you’ll master the faith, mindset, discipline & savvy you need to become the best version of yourself and grow an influential business.
Hey hey! I’m Marlena Banks, founder of Big Idea Food™, the weekly devotional that has now become an emerging Christian media brand for entrepreneurs & creatives. I created this platform with one mission in mind: To help us create so much time & financial freedom that we can execute every big idea God gives us with no limits.
This community is where we will accomplish that mission together. With over 10 years experience encouraging, branding & coaching Christian founders, I’ve curated a treasure-trove of resources and a comprehensive system designed to help you level up in 4 key areas:
Feed your faith daily so you can boldly take every leap God calls you to take.
Master your mindset so you can eradicate limiting beliefs holding you back from experiencing the abundant life God has for you.
Develop your discipline so you can become the version of yourself that you aspire to be.
Build your business savvy so you can create, market and scale a profitable, financially sound business.
I believe that mastering these 4 areas will free you up to be able (read: wealthy enough in mind and money) to do everything God puts on your heart for your family, your community and the world.
That’s the type of freedom & influence that belongs to you and it starts by surrounding yourself with purpose-driven entrepreneurs who believe like you.
If you don’t commit to feeding your faith & relationship with God consistently, you will never have enough courage to execute all of what God is calling you to do.
God isn’t holding you back from prospering in your life or business, your own lack of consistency and follow through is.
Praying and reading your Bible alone isn’t enough to get you to your next level, you must combine that with action if you want to see real results (Faith without works is dead)
Knocking out your list of goals won’t bring you the fulfillment you desire, becoming the type of person who knocks out those goals will.
Buying and listening to a bunch of business courses will do absolutely nothing for you if you never implement what you’re learning.
The reason you’ve been terrible at implementing is that you lack an effective accountability system to support you.
Build a routine for feeding your faith consistently & stick to it
Retrain your mind to naturally think thoughts that serve you
Implement habits & routines that consistently support your goals instead of working against them.
Find your dream accountability partner & build an accountability system that helps you follow through on achieving your goals.
Develop the business skills & knowledge outside of your expertise that you need to make your business profitable & influential
Finally act on the business knowledge you’ve been learning instead of just continuing to absorb it.
