entrepreneurial journey can be a lonely experience. Meeting
together with people who are going through the daily ups and
downs of business enterprise can almost be likened
to discovering an oasis in the desert every week. Joel Freeman
has put together an exceptional book and companion workbook
for entrepreneurs, which can be used for personal
development or to connect business owners in your church
on a regular basis. It's my hunch that every participating
entrepreneur will become more successful and smarter as a
result. I hope that large and small churches alike also
understand the ministry potential of Freeman's
innovative idea for the Entrepreneur Ministry Club Connections
(emc2). It's an excellent "easy-to-implement,
follow-the-bouncing-ball" idea that every church might
want to consider."

"God has given me the honor to have known and worked with Joel
Freeman for a number of years. His newest book titled, If
Nobody Loves You, Create The Demand
and heartaches of the entrepreneurial journey. He has
also developed a practical, group-friendly workbook,
connecting the contents of the book specifically to
entrepreneurs who live out their faith in the marketplace
every day. Joel's entrepreneurial book/workbook combination is
an excellent catalyst to assist with developing and
empowering small business owners and those interested in
impacting their communities in a meaningful way."
John Jenkins, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church of Glenarden
"I have at least 50 books people have given me to read and
really felt nothing would probably come out of reading
Joel Freeman's new book. But the title intrigued me. As
I began glancing over the book, the book really began to
speak to me and my current situation and it became a
real 'God moment' for me. As I continued to read, I was
pleasantly surprised. Finally a book that really gave me
something besides trying to get me to attend another
conference or buy the author's next book! Much of the
information in Dr. Freeman's book was new and extremely
insightful. The book has help fill my speaking calendar
and has given me a major strategy going into the
future. This is an extremely helpful book for anyone
trying to better market what they do. Anyone, young or
old, will greatly benefit from reading this book. I am
especially interested in the Entrepreneur Ministry Club
Connections (emc2). It is my opinion that every
church can benefit by using this book and workbook
combination -- developing a regular meeting especially
designed for entrepreneurs in their churches. It will be
an experience that will bring practical entrepreneurial
wisdom to all of the participants and also will allow
everyone to better apply spiritual principles to their

simply means "a person who organizes, manages and

describe what Christian workers do, what does? In Joel
Freeman's book/workbook combination you will find
valuable information and motivation to help make you
the best possible servant-leader and will also provide
the necessary resources for entrepreneurs in your church

~ Letter about If Nobody Loves You, Create The
Demand from a prisoner
Freeman, I find it appropriate to write you from the most humbling
place I have ever been. I'm not exactly sure why, but who am I to
argue with the wind. I've recently decided to commit to exploring
life on different terms by changing my beliefs and accepting
certain struggles with open arms and mind. I find it necessary to
thank you for bringing comfort along the way.
I am now two
months away from release in a correctional facility. I was given the
gift of life through incarceration. After several years of
trafficking marijuana, the last two while struggling with a deadly
addiction of painkillers, I was finally forcefully removed from my
lifestyle and given an opportunity to reflect. It wasn’t until two
months ago that I committed to walking away from the temptation of
fast living and find comfort in sacrifice and struggle.
I'll save you
the dramatics involving my journey to this point because I believe
my struggle has been trivial compared to others that go unnoticed or
are seen but never spoken of. I've always had the ability to find
comfort and support from my loving family, I simply chose not to.
The mistakes I made revolved around my believing success in life was
measured by other people's perception of one's monetary value, not
by the satisfaction one feels from being content with life itself. I
now have found a new approach to life and holding myself to a
higher standard as a person.
For the last
year I've been concentrating on a project to keep myself busy during
my stay and following my release. My love of creating and enjoying
all forms of music has inspired me to address several issues I've
found to be problematic, both as an independent in the industry and
a patron of others. My goal is simply to empower other independents
by providing direction through knowledge and resources using a web
based network – eliminating unnecessary middlemen and expenses along
to better my knowledge and approach towards my goal, I received a
copy of If Nobody Loves You,
Create The Demandwith my normal regimen of materials. I began reading strictly
from an entrepreneurial perspective; I finished reading as an
adoring admirer, morally
obligated to make a better effort in my way of life.
I've never felt it more important to shy away from the dangerously
easy way of obtaining money than I did as I finished your work.
To say why, I'm
without a definitive answer. I'm fairly certain you weren't writing
to show convicted drug addicts how to embrace struggle and sacrifice
while struggling to sacrifice. But, I also believe you'll appreciate
knowing you have not only reached someone in my position, but
potentially saved them as well. I am 28 and have never been so
positively influenced by another individual's work. I believe I
owe you much more than the cost of your book.
waited a short period of time to write this letter in order to be
sure my feelings are genuine.
I keep your book where I can see it daily and make mention of it to
others frequently. My father is helping me with my project and had
this book sent in. He has been told that that we will one day use
your professional services to benefit our team.
I tell myself
one day I'll be able to shake your hand and ask if you remember the
letter you received from a prison. At that time, if I have not met
my goals, I will tell you how much just having a goal is worth to
me. Sir, I thank you for the comfort and confidence you have
provided me during this transition in my life. Please don't be
surprised or feel obligated to respond if I send you an occasional
update while I attempt to make a something from a whole lot of
