On June 1, 2004 I bought my first restaurant and started my entrepreneurial journey. Twenty-six days later I married my high school sweetheart. We left on our honeymoon to Kauai for two weeks and came back to a mess. Too bad life can’t suspend in honeymoon state!

The mountains and valleys of life’s journey are extremely high and ridiculously low. My wife and I have experienced multiple miscarriages as we struggled through wanting a baby. We have had months where we had more month than money left. We have also been honored as Franchisee of the Year. We have been blessed with three beautiful children. I have been featured on many podcasts including, Entrepreneur On Fire. Through it all God’s purpose has been there.

In the beginning of my journey I was excited to conquer the world. Over time and through deep valleys and failures my heart gradually became hardened. Slowly but surely I began to apply a mask to my life, becoming what I thought others wanted. It is exhausting wearing a mask. The life was getting sucked out of me day after day. My blood pleasure was out of line, I was depressed and exhausted. Wearing a mask is a shell of what we are supposed to be.

Bit by bit I removed the mask by connecting to God on a deeper level. Only through realization of the full power of what Jesus died for was I able to change. I began to be the spouse and parent that God created me to be. I found deep fulfillment in the same career and getting my physical body to marathon shape. This has not been easy, but it has been worth it. God has been good throughout the process while He continues to shape me.

I believe God’s purpose for your life is there as well. That no matter what you have done or have failed to do, as long as there’s breath in your lungs, God desires you to play a role in His plan. God designed and put dreams in your life for a reason. He put passion in you and knit you for a purpose only you can fulfill. You were made for such a time as this.

My aim and goal is to be with you through your own journey of highs and lows. To help you build your business while keeping a balanced and fulfilled life. Together we can radically change the world. Be blessed on your journey.

    Thank you for following me on Twitter. I checked out your ‘about me’ page and found your free e-book: Finding Your Path. I don’t believe it’s coincidence that my husband and I are beginning a three day prayer-fasting to reorder our thoughts and lining our plans up with God’s. We absolutely try to do this continuously but have gone through some tough years that has turned us upside down and questioning everything (except the fact that God knows what He is doing!)

    I can’t wait to read it because I know it is timely. I love how God brings things together! Looking forward to reading some more of your blogs. God bless.

    • Its a short read but I pray it speaks to you! Let me know if I can help in any way. So nice to meet you Debbie;) God is never late but always on time. Blessings to you.

  • Thank you for living your stated purpose, Mr. Zechariah. You have blessed my life. Thank you.

    • Thank you Arlen. It was a joy connecting with you. A look forward to getting to know you more;) blessings

    I like what your blog stands for. It will touch the lives of millions. I see we share a common aspiration for a better world. Let me inform you I have just launched ‘Operation 1 billion people for an excellent World.’ I hope by it to bring 1 billion people into one forum ‘Excellent World International Organization’ to work in synergy for an excellent world. This will be a formidable force against those who act in a way that destroys our beautiful world.Reading about you I see you are the kind of people the world needs to be an excellent place. Bravo!’
