It’s a mentor having her entrepreneur mentee into her home and introducing her to her family.
It’s a volunteer taking time to visit an entrepreneur whose business has been struggling.
It’s round the table discussions on budgeting and testimonies of God’s faithfulness.
It’s laughter and grateful tears.
It’s about sharing life with another person. Perhaps one of the most powerful aspects of the Paradigm Shift program is that it creates an environment that encourages people of different socio-economic backgrounds, races, and life experiences to share life with one another.
The other night I had the privilege of hearing entrepreneurs and church volunteers share about their experience in the Paradigm Shift program. Again and again they expressed how meaningful their relationships with each other were and how much learning took place within the context of these relationships.
We can never underestimate the power of sharing life with someone.
