Little Faith/Big God

My UFC (Up Front Contract) today is that this discussion will involve God, how faith affects your life and how it also affects your business.

Canada v US

We’re the same and yet different! We have been involved in a few different organizations throughout our lives.  Some corporations and some business opportunities.
