"Ministry will shape us, but it shouldn't sink us. Sadly I meet so many women who are drowning in their calling. I'm certain that's not how it's supposed to be. This guide bundle is AMAZING. It's an absolute goldmine of wisdom. Lisa-Jo, Becky, Katie and Jon know what it takes to develop a ministry that both gives life and contributes to our livelihood. And in these pages, they show us how to do it with integrity, dignity, and diligence. This is a much needed conversation and an incredibly helpful tool."

Raise your hand if you’ve ever thought:

I want to monetize my writing... 
but I don’t have time to figure out how.

• • • • • • • •

I pour my heart into speaking and serving others... but seriously, I can’t keep getting paid in Starbucks gift cards.
{Especially when the gas to the gig costs more than the card balance!}

• • • • • • • •

I know I’m supposed to grow an audience, build an email list, and all that jazz... but building a platform costs so much time and money! {And quite frankly, my bank account can't take the strain anymore.}

• • • • • • • •

I’m tired of people asking to pick my brain just because I run a blog or published a book. I can’t possibly meet everyone for coffee and keep giving away my knowledge for free... but I don’t know how to say no or ask to get paid!

• • • • • • • •

I hear people talk about “multiple income streams” and words like “lead magnet” and “sales funnel” and “ad networks” {oh my!!}... and I wish someone would tell me exactly what the heck those are and how to use them!

• • • • • • • •

I’ve tried selling stuff... but everything I do seems to fail. I wonder what’s the point of even trying anymore.

• • • • • • • •

It seems like everybody else around me is figuring out how to make a living from their writing or speaking or candlestick making... except me. What am I doing wrong?

• • • • • • • •

And how about this classic?

I’m doing this work for Jesus, so... is it okay to make money from it? Does wanting to get paid in more than potted plants make me selfish and money-hungry?!

{No, it doesn’t. You’ve come to the right place.}

Who are we, anyway, and why should you listen us?

Hey, friends. We're Lisa-Jo Baker, Becky Kopitzke, Katie Reid and Jonathan Purifoy—a team of Christian creatives and business-minded folks who LOVE Jesus and believe He has called us to ministry.

Collectively we've published eight books, uploaded hundreds of podcast episodes, spoken all over the country, coached fortune 100 companies, and posted on social media no less than 600 billion times (feels like, anyway).

Over the last decade-plus we've seen and done all the things, from blogging to coaching to online marketing, product launching, traditional and self publishing, conference networking and SO MUCH MORE.

We know what works and what we wish we'd never wasted time on.

And we're here to show you how to learn from our successes as well as our mistakes.

Our Inspired Business Guides are jam-packed, super easy to follow playbooks for HOW TO GROW YOUR MINISTRY TO A REAL BUSINESS and do it with passion and purpose. It's filled with our favorite strategies, pro tips, and been there / done that insight from four veteran Christian industry insiders who are still DOING THE THINGS every day, ministering to real people AND earning an income to bless our families. We think it's not only possible; it's also wise.

Street cred? Yep, we got it.

Among the four of us, we've worked with a boatload of legit people and places. Here's a sampling of 'em.

"I've been wanting to launch something for ages but wasn't sure how to manage the small costs that would come up in my doing so. It was stressing me out. I couldn't even imagine what more costly shake ups would be required in the future to keep my family thriving while also dedicating more time to my ministry as it grows. The business ideas you presented were so helpful in reframing the way I thought about making money doing something I care deeply about. Thanks so much for making the guides!" — Karen
