So let's talk about consistency and going deep. Every week I pray about it. I really think about, okay, what am I dealing with? What have I dealt with in the past and how can I be more transparent in this journey of entrepreneurship? Especially as a kingdompreneur, I'm a woman that has a faith-based business. As you may or may not know, those who are watching can see my bookcase full of many of my books. I have written a lot of books. 20+ in a very short period of time and even though I'm very proud of that, even though it's a great thing that I did, I didn't go as deep as I could with them because every time I wrote a book, I just moved on to the next thing.
So if you have not listened that broadcast yet, go ahead and go back to listen to it. It will bless your whole entire life. Last year something changed. I changed and I realized that I needed to go deeper. I realized that what I was doing, even though I was pumping books out and they have been blessing people left and right, I needed to go deeper. I needed to stay consistent with one thing instead of just moving from here to there.
When you are a creator, like I am. My mind just works in different ways. Like I'm always thinking about different things. So it's very tempting. It's very alluring to one day just be on creation mode all the time. I know I've been there, I have done that, um, but there's something beautiful, magical when you discover how big a thing is...

Did you know that you are now sitting on GOLD? You love doing it so much that you don’t even charge people for doing it for them or showing them how to do it themselves.
I want to share with you why it is so important for you to Teach others what your easy is. You don’t have to feel guilty about sharing your gift and making money at the same time.

Today while driving to my trainer's gym I could not help noticing how many turns I was taking and how windy the road was. But no matter how many turns I needed to make I knew exactly where I was. NO GPS needed. I just knew where to turn. ThAt reminded of why I am so adamant about helping kingdom womenpreneurs and a few determined brothers. I don't think I have shared that story will you so I thought I would tell you... last year one of my best friends was putting on her first conference in North Carolina, of course, I offered to help in any way I could. Since she knows I am a nerd she asked me to help her with the livestream. I was more than happy to help cause Livestreaming is my thing, and I love electronics.
Because I was manning the livestreaming equipment I was seated in the very middle of the room, so I could see the stage and the audience very well. I knew my friend had a killer line up of speaker but I was not ready for what happened next. The MC was just amazing; gifted worship leader that she was she has the audience, clapping, dancing and praising. There I was in the middle of all this loving it all but still watching from the sidelines - see I was raised in a very small conservative church, we did not shout, jump or say loud amens - the event kept going and the speakers kept pouring what they had inside of them. many people in the audience were raised in such churches so worshiping like that was nothing new to them, however, there were others like me that were not. At some point, I was prophesied to, the worship music was going and I began to worship in ways I had not been able to before and all of the sudden I was no longer watching on the sidelines. Worshiping freely was now my normal too.
Needless to say, I was no longer the same, and by the end of one of the speaker's presentation, I understood something I had been struggling with for a while.
I wanted to grow my business as a writer, ghostwriter, and writing coach but no matter what I did I could not reach the level I wanted.
At the same time, I did not like the box I had put myself, I kept using books as my only vehicle. I was not utilizing ALL my gifts and talents. I kept asking myself, did I quit my 6-figure job for this? Is this all there is?
I wanted to help more people and I also wanted to feel fulfilled doing it. Have you ever felt that way?
What did I do? I kept writing book after book (that's how to book #20, 21) and creating more courses, I have over 20 courses now.
But no matter how many books I wrote or courses I created that nagging feeling that I was created for more would not leave me alone. I knew I was called for more, that i needed to use ALL my gifts and talents.
What did the speaker say that really spoke to me? He said, "when you get in My presence, that which you have tried to toil over will be done effortlessly."
And just like that, I got it, I have been trying to do something that was not working, it was too hard. I was not doing my easy.
My easy is strategy, creating content and helping kingdom entrepreneurs create content for their faith-based audience. I was leaving out major parts of myself out and I did not even know. And that's how the Teach Your Easy Movement was born.

So please do me a favor, follow me on Twitter, send me a message via @ Cat Storing and let me know what questions you have about kingdom and business. Okay? awesome. Let's get started today with the podcast episode.
Today we're talking about calling and business, your calling, and your business. And this is something that I know a lot about because I used to struggle with that. You let me know if this is something that you used to struggle with, or you still struggle with today.
Often times we feel that we have to choose one or the other, “Oh my God, I have to be all about the business, and I cannot mix my faith with my business.” Actually, one of my first coaches told me that, “Catherine, I can tell that you feel very strongly about this faith thing, but you might want to tone down that Jesus talk and you might have to, you might not want to tell people that you're a Christian. Like just keep it on the down low and it just didn't feel right, but I didn't know how to, how to successfully incorporate my business and my ministry.
I'm just straight talk. I'm telling you what happened. So, for years I had this dance where I will be too churchy, too Christian, if you will, or too businessy and I couldn't figure it out how to put them together. Like I struggle and I didn't have any leaders in my life at the time that could model it for me or even help me in my quest to be a kingdompreneur. I just didn't have that and eventually, I just went to God and said, “Listen, I need help. Can you send me somebody, anybody that can help me match this thing, marry this thing?”
Because my heart's desire is that I can be authentic. I don't have to hit people over the head with my faith. I don't have to be churchy, but I want to be authentic. I want to be the type of person that when you meet me, you're like, “Oh my God, you sound exactly the same. You look exactly the same. You talk exactly the same because it’s real because it is authentic.”
Does that make sense? So, you know what God said, He dropped it in my spirit, and I was not happy about this. But this is the way God works. He said, “I'm going to teach you so you can teach other people.” I was like, “Come on!” I was waiting for somebody else to show me. But you know, this is how He rolls, this is what we're going to do.
And that's how the book A Match Made in Heaven: How to Marry.
How do you feel about money? What were you taught about money?
I will address all those questions and more on today's episode. It is time us Kingdompreneurs let go of our fear of money and embrace that Money answers ALL things (Ecclesiastes 10:19).
