WATCH (X min)

DISCUSS (x min)

1. When you think about Will's manifesto for entrepreneurship—"I believe entrepreneurs see a better future and proceed to create it"—has this mindset been a consistent pattern in the way you see and respond to the world? Give examples.


WATCH (X min)

REFLECT (x min)

Spend five minutes in silence, praying and reflecting on the videos. Ask participants to jot down questions that were raised, significant key points, where they felt encouraged or challenged by the Lord, etc.


DISCUSS (x min)

2. Think of a time when you have gone through the valley of informed pessimism on a project or venture. How did you respond? What kept you stalled in informed pessimism? What helped you push through to informed optimism?

3. Have someone read Romans 8:18-30 out loud in your group. Will says that for him this passage is not about God turning our failures into success, but about God having a bigger plan than you can imagine. Where have you seen this to be true in your own life?

5. The governing motive of Tegu is to create opportunity for the poor through business. How would you articulate the governing motive for an enterprise you would like to create or join?
