Be Intentional 


What can we do if the actions of the Marketplace Mission Trip aren't natural to us? One of the best ways to accomplish a task outside of your comfort zone is to be intentional about how you do it. Not everything comes naturally to us, especially acting on a belief in which you fear you might receive negative feedback. I know it is especially difficult for me. Yet, Jacob sheds light on this subject and explains that we need to make a consistent and clear effort to accomplish our goals. Just like in our jobs, we should be wholly focused on completing the task at hand to the best of our abilities and the Mission Trip is no exception. Mike and Jacob discuss the Marketplace Mission Trip and give a brief explanation of what it is all about so make sure to listen in to get the details if you haven't already!




Building trust around you is important. Especially in Jacob's line of work, trust, and integrity becomes an integral part of how he operates his business. Faith becomes a natural correlation to trust. We have to trust that the Lord is with us at all times right? And in doing so we have to live out our faith every day in a way that holds integrity close to our hearts. In this Interview Jacob talks about his mentor and how having the integrity to do what is right for the client always comes first and if we hold true to our beliefs then everything else will fall into place. How have you shown action that represents your integrity? Are you inspiring trust in others the same way you would like them to trust you? Think about these and let us know some of the ways you have accomplished this on our networks like Facebook or Mighty Networks!
