Business Thought Formation and Business Points of View

Clear thinking and well-articulated points of view are powerful tools in business. Everyone’s thoughts are based upon a framework, and everyone’s speech is formed with a specific purpose in mind, both of which should be given first priority in business. Our thoughts and speech determine the results we achieve – positive or negative. At Emerging Business Services we base our thoughts and speech on

“May the words of my mouth and the meditations of my heart be acceptable in Thy sight, O God.” ~Psalm 19:14

At Emerging Business Services, we pride ourselves on having a correct framework for thought and purpose in speech. We benefit from it, and so do our clients. We would love an opportunity to discuss how having a correct framework for thought and a correct purpose in speech has benefited our clients and how it can benefit your business.

Risk and Motives for Risk

Taking risk is a fundamental aspect of business, one that is crucial to understand. An often overlooked aspect of risk is a proper understanding of the motive for taking risk. A question we pose at Emerging Business Services to ourselves and our clients is “Do we have a correct motive for taking risk?” Understanding the motive should be given first priority in determining which business risks to take. At Emerging Business Services we base our motives for taking risk on.

“This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him.” ~1 John 4:9

In short, God took a risk to help us reach something that we could not reach for ourselves. At Emerging Business Services, we take risk focused on helping others reach something they could not necessarily reach for themselves. We would love an opportunity to discuss how having this motive has benefited us, our clients and how it can benefit your business.

Grace of God Children’s Project

In 2015 Emerging Business Services adopted the Grace of God Children’s Project, which allows our business services to meet the needs of others in Kenya. The opportunity to participate in this worthy endeavor was brought to our attention by Nick Glimsdahl, who is leading the U.S. based effort to assist the Grace of God Children’s orphanage. Emerging Business Services provides resources such as capital, legal, educational, health, clothing, nutritional, and others to the Grace of God Children’s project.
