Jesus was not poor, so why does the Church say He was?

Written by // Nigel Maine Categories // God, Faith & Miracles, Business

Sometimes we have to look backwards to know that we're moving forwards in the right direction.

Is Business 'For' God or 'Of' God?

Twenty years ago I had a quadruple heart bypass.  Ten years ago I was told by a cardiac consultant to stop drinking alcohol and lose 30kgs.  In the same year 2006, I came up with an idea for a book and a new business.

If you take a look at the About pages you can find out a bit more about my background, but in a nutshell, I've been self-employed since 1987 in the business to business arena.
