How Business Owners Harm Their Profits
Writter and Producer - Yashyka Bat Yash'real (Yaschica Coard)
Listen to the audio lesson:
*Audio statement correction: I mean people think you are suppose to expect to fail at business and move on to the next. I did not mean you cannot have more than one business. You can have multiple businesses when built with wisdom of YHWH.
Most business owners do not realize that we have and do repeat the same mistakes over the years as those that failed in business before. I have met people that expect to move onto more than one business as if that is part of the game. I use the word “game” because I realize for some people it is a game. But if you are a serious business owner, like I am, you may know you are in business because it is your calling by the Most High YHWH. The generic business advice is tailored for the children of the world, and I hear the same statements when I can see their true gifting, “that is not what everyone else is doing.” Looking back on the past to improve on the future is how success is made. Business owners do not have to fail at their businesses, but most people do not run a well-structured business with accounting (stewardship) practices. Most business owners run around in fear of losing money, so they do not have set schedules and they do not have accounting procedures in place.
If you claim to be a believer and live the scriptures, you may know or need to know we do not follow the ways of the world. If you feel like they know business better than our Most High, you are already wrong. The people of YAH feel as if we cannot handle business because we are programmed, we apply Torah (teachings) in our personal lives but not in our trade (work). My time in the office setting gave me insight to what people really think of my people and I was not aware that racism was still so widespread because no one talked about it, but they most certainly acted upon their hate. I noticed a taught fear among certain family members that believed that certain people groups are smarter than other people groups of what they call color. I soon realized that although I told them truth, they automatically dismissed anything I said that was in opposition of their programing.
Business owners today are doing the same thing when they hear the Torah some recognize the teaching and others do not but because it is going in an opposite direction of the world, they believe those that stand and walk in Emunah do not have the correct understanding of how to run a business. I have found that winning the battle over my profits is constant, but YHWH is increasing me in strength (Yashayahu (Isaiah) 40:29 KJV) daily through YARAH (Torah) and understanding of what he is teaching me.
We harm our profits and our business when we continue to learn the wrong old paths. People are teaching against Torah and those are the things that keep your blessings from YHWH. I am not saying people will not receive blessings from Mammon but that comes with a price. Therefore, every time the people of YHWH set up something YHWH destroys it because they set it up just like the world. We are to leave behind (drive out) the world practices and once we turn back to YAHOSHUA we will feel the restoration only YHWH can give. Yet, the people come together blaming the natural entities but YHWH saids because they are forever learning but never understanding because they do not operate in, Chakam, the wisdom of YHWH.
We harm our profits and our business when we continue to try and partner with those that knowingly or unknowingly conspire against us. Whether we believe it or not there are very real Ruach-Ra forces that work against us and through the hearts of people. Ah-Mos (Amos) 8:5-7 KJV. The only people that love the Sabbath are those of us that walk-in Torah. When building a business, I ran into many people that canceled services because I would not fold into their unreasonable request. Today people do not have respect for accountants because the accountant does not stand for accountability in most industries anymore but instead are reduced to chasing money – financial managers. I did not realize until this year that this was happening in my industry. As I work with various clients, I also see how their fields have changed over the years reduced to liars and cheats running their industry. What would happen if and when we stand against the practices of the children of mammon (a conglomerate of Ruach Ra spirits (Leviathan) that use money to seduce and trick)?
We harm our profits and our business when we make purchases that we do not need because most people do not wait on YHWH. When others attempt to push me into doing things their way, I say I will wait on YHWH, and I was told “some of us cannot wait on YAH.” Since this is the case, I understand I can reference the prophets as to the direction the people went and today is living proof that doing your own thing does not work. I have learned that people believe their way works although they complain of all the things that are causing them harm such as physical illness and mental strain and stress including those that earn large profits.
We harm our profits when we believe we must operate in dishonesty to make things work. There are some people that refuse to report all business income and accurately keep records to support their business spending. Most people want to write off expenses without detail and under report income. I recently realized that people look for accountants that will turn their heads to their wrongdoing and participate. I am not one of those accountants and I let go of these people. My work is not to assist the dishonest but support the honest. Since the spiritual law of reaping and sowing is real those that sow dishonesty will reap dishonesty.
Spending time with dishonest practices will cost more in the long run. Although doing the right thing seems to take time and cost more in the beginning the investment time and monetary wise is with implementing honest systems to support your business. YHWH loves to see the plumb line laid and this means a measurement and walking in the appointed direction as in his Torah (YARAH). By implementing YHWH’s instructions into our business, we will deliver better services and products that will turn a more honorable productive fruit in return.
Side note: One that I need to add to the list. People that attempt to avoid application fees instead of comparison between the benefits. If you derive benefit than the cost is very reasonable.
