All of us, who gave their life to Christ has a testimony and what’s amazing is how God continues to add to it as we continue to live. I want to as briefly as possible share with you some of what God has done for me the last few years while at the same time teaching me valuable lessons to better my life while equipping me for the future. I’ll be as brief as possible, if I included all the details it would be too long.
Decided it was time to go full time music after a massive corporate office job lay-off with Shell Oil. As years passed financial trouble began as music was all I had. I was then severely injured in a semi-pro basketball league where my elbow funny bone nerve was completely crushed. As time went along it got worse and worse and eventually I ended up having surgery while asking the Lord to help me. As I was recovering, I continued to asked Jesus to help me physically and financially just simply talking to Him sometimes walking around the house, laying in the bed, in the shower or while driving. Took a break from music and prioritized bringing in finances to take care of my family, even if it meant getting another job. I was being taught that sometimes it’s necessary to take a break from what you’re doing to leave God room to operate and direct the path. So I stopped recording, etc. Little did I know that God was setting me up to be in a position where all provision would be met by God, and I would not have to be a financial burden to anyone while freely being able to be who God wants me to be and do.
I began to become more disciplined and spiritually stronger in areas where I was weak. God used my injury to make me stronger and to teach me so many things!
Then an idea quickly evolved into a full time successful business miracle.
I Noticed 4 old phones sitting in the drawer from upgrades. Decided to sell those phones on eBay. Sold them all within a couple weeks. Began to search for phone suppliers. Got scammed off the first order. Didn’t give up. Found another supplier that seemed more legit. Visited a few banks and got turned down for business loans. Finally one bank (last resort) gave me a shot and gave me a $10,000 business line of credit while everyone else turned me down. Took a step of faith and purchased 80 phones from the supplier for $12,875 using the line of credit and the the rest of my own money. Order after order, sale after sale miraculously continued to come in and I sold all the phones within 3 weeks. Quickly became a Top Rated Silver Medal Seller on eBay and a 5 Star rated Amazon Seller to my amazement after a year of doing this!
During the next 4 years of selling phones, the business had a gross sales of near $140,000 per year. Then suppliers began to raise prices and eBay and Amazon raised their seller fees cutting into profits while the business began to take up too much of my time. I again asked Jesus for help. I was led to transition my business into investments. It was excellent when I first started earning a $40,000 profit quickly which I then lost because I didn’t know to sell. Asked God for help and God helped me learn the investment and trading business and gave me direction. I was able to recover that loss and more. Now I’m financially equipped to take care of my family and focus on what God wants me to do!
