Today I wanted to take time to review a couple books I’ve read recently by a good friend of mine named Kevin Cullis. This is something I plan to do on my blog about once a month. I want to highlight current books I’m reading with relevant information. These books could be fiction, or non-fiction, it is whatever I feel could be pertinent to you, my readers.
The first book I want to highlight is How to Start a Business: Mac Version. Kevin Cullis has written a wonderfully creative masterpiece. You do not have to own a Mac to find this book useful. Although if you do, Kevin has outlined how to use it like a trained professional.
I appreciated how he defined managing his time and projects in chapter 4. His marketing plans and sales tactics are on point. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who is looking to start a business or gain more knowledge about Mac computers.
In my personal experience, there are few books out there capture the essence of starting a business with the end goal in mind. As a fellow self-published author, that is just starting out, you don’t think of yourself as a business owner. You feel, I’m an author, my work is done once the book is complete. I couldn’t have been more wrong. Now I am: a marketer, an accountant, a salesman, a public speaker, and much more. This book helped me understand that, and has guided me along the way.
The second book is entitled, How Would Jesus Do Business. You don’t see too many books out there that describe how God wants us to earn and spend our money. I appreciated the fact that Kevin had Biblical verses and principals to back up his information. Jimmy and Kevin’s banter was also a pleasant surprise. It’s easy to see the type of friendship you’ve built while going on this journey together. I also wanted to take time to thank you both for your service.
How many times have you gone to church hungry for information about finances? The truth is not many churches want to handle this controversial topic. We know that God wants us to be wise with our money. But somewhere along the way we’ve all heard the saying: “money is the root of all evil.” That’s not necessarily the case: the love of money is the root of all evil, but so is the love of food, women, alcohol, drugs, or anything that one could make an idol over the Lord himself.
Kevin puts this in perspective. He shows you through Scripture how we should use our money and talents. I recommend this book to any entrepreneur looking to build a business the way God intended you to.
I wanted to link both of Kevin’s books for sale on amazon. Please take a moment to check them out.
