Does God really have a plan and a purpose for my work? God is vitally, passionately, and intimately interested in the workplace. Many have embraced the biblical concept of our whole life being impacted by God, and that there is no separation between the sacred and the secular. How do you integrate your faith with your work? Through real commercial experience, author Mark Bilton has walked with God and seen Him open doors that have taken him from the shop floor to the boardroom; from sales assistant to CEO. In this book are 365 short, sharp, insightful messages that are scriptural and applicable to you and your work. They will transform your work life, and your workplace. There is no inconsistency between a Christian worldview and commercial success. Work is a vital part of His plan and purpose for us. We have been lovingly crafted, anointed, and appointed, for a particular purpose. We will only reach our full potential as we recognize God´s hand at work in our work. 1. Language: English.

How the physical world around us influences what we buy and consume online by Wharton professor and consumer shopping behavior expert David R. Bell. An audiobook for current and future entrepreneurs, business and economics students, professional investors, and anyone else with a stake or interest in how use of the Internet is likely to evolve. Conventional wisdom holds that the Internet makes the world flat and reduces friction, erasing the impact of the physical world on our buying habits. But Wharton professor and marketing expert David R. Bell argues that the way we use the Internet is largely shaped by the physical world that we inhabit. Anyone can go online and buy a pair of pants - but the likelihood that we would do so depends to a significant degree on where we live. The presence of stores nearby, trendy and friendly neighbors, and local sales taxes play a large role in the decision-making process when it comes to buying online. Location Is (Still) Everything is for anyone who wants to understand the patterns underlying how and why we use the Internet to shop, sell, and search, including entrepreneurs, students, and investors. This audiobook is not only about Internet trends and innovations, but also about fundamental human behavior and the role that the Internet plays in our daily lives. 1. Language: English.
