Hello fellow Over-Achiever,
Thank you so much for taking the time out of your busy schedule to view our BOSS (Business Oriented Saved & Successful) Network site. BOSS was designed to help Christian Entrepreneurs develop their businesses while simultaneously developing their relationship with Christ. I would like to share with you the reason why I am certain that this platform is ordained by God Himself for a time such as this.
In the Spring of 2011, I attempted to open a small personal training studio in downtown Atlanta. I had one major problem, I had no experience running a business nor had I taken any training on the subject. I simply wanted to help people get healthy and happy and I wanted to do it on my own terms. Eventually, I decided to educate myself on business basics but even with seemingly unlimited access to information, I found it difficult to find complete quality information at an affordable price. Information I desperately needed to save my failing company. Unfortunately, I could not find what I was looking for; at least not in time anyway; and month after month I fell deeper and deeper into debt and into depression. Fast forward to the Fall of 2013, add a series of unfortunate events including alcoholism, two toxic relationships, public misconduct, rage, and homelessness. I found myself in the mental ward of a local hospital due to a failed suicide attempt.
After about a six month long pity party, I had a moment of clarity. It was in that moment that God revealed to me that I was to be a catalyst of change in the entrepreneurial space. I was to serve as a connector and bring marketing gurus, business service providers, authors, etc into one space both on and offline that was easy to find and navigate for business owners who were actively looking (like I was) for complete, high quality business training and information resources at an affordable price.
So with a newfound sense of self-worth, purpose, and direction; in the Fall of 2013, I stepped out on faith and launched BOSSNews Magazine “The Publication for the Female Over-Achiever.” With no outside resources or staff, God has allowed me to grow a list from zero to over 1000 subscribers and 6,500+ social media followers. I have hosted several successful events including our 2015 Top Atlanta Women To Watch Awards Gala hosted in December 2014. By the grace of God, I have also created a center of influence to include but not limited to Church leaders, city officials, professional organizations directors, and small business owners around the country.
Even though the female entrepreneur market is extremely profitable and readily available; this Spring, I was compelled by the leading of the Holy Spirit to shift my focus to those business owners who go to church every Sunday burdened and struggling to pay tithes because of a failing business that they must reluctantly work on come Monday. Now, my life and my legacy will be one of service to the Christian Entrepreneur through the BOSS Network
BOSS will serve as a catalyst of change throughout the Christian Community, a beacon of hope to the struggling business owner, and a sounding board to the world that God still reigns and that His people are still heirs and joint heirs with His Son Jesus. It will provide those who we serve with the resources and relationships they need to prosper and use successfully what they have been given so that even more will be given and they will have an abundance as promised in Matthew 25:28. It also provides an opportunity to disciple non-Christian Entrepreneurs and lead them to Christ by exposing them to effective Biblically based business development advices.
I am fully persuaded that those years that I spent in the dark prepared me for this moment, for this bold unprecedented initiative for Christ and I pray that you will be compelled to join me.
Sending you positive vibes and the love of Christ,
Tamara D. Bradley
