I think we can all agree our lives have been changed by Apple. We're attached at the hip to our phones, which are connected to our MacBooks where I can text someone on my "phone" and I can view their reply on the screen of my laptop. What. In. The. World. Their innovation has changed the landscape of our daily world as we know it (good, bad or indifferent).
A few weeks ago they hit $1 trillion. I have read a little bit about Tim, who took over as Apple's CEO in 2011 after Steve Jobs resigned, but mostly about his morning routine that you can read about in a business insider article by clicking here.
When they announced this huge milestone in Apple's history books, Tim wrote the following memo to their over 120,000 employees. I love when he states, "Steve founded Apple on the belief that the power of human creativity can solve even the biggest challenges — and that the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world are the ones who do."
I love these words that recognize the power of PEOPLE and PASSION in achieving your goals!

Prayer for the entrepreneur:
Jesus, You are the Creator of the universe. You made each star in the sky and yet, You also thought the world needed one of me. Help me to never settle for less than my best in what I create, write and produce. May I always glorify You through it all and never settle for the mundane or the mediocre, but always strive for Your best for me.
In Your name,
