About Double Impact
There has been a phenomenal rate of growth in the number of married couples who have chosen the co-entrepreneurial lifestyle. Whereas most couples struggles daily to juggle the balls of work, family and self; the Copreneurship space presents a more complicated landscape, given the intricate nature of the marriage relationship as is then intertwined with the demands of a business relationship.
This is particularly true in these times when the enemy is attacking our homes, and many homes are experiencing various degrees of turbulence. Irrespective of whether they undertook this lifestyle willingly, or were forced into it due to adverse economic realities such as the loss of a job, Copreneurs daily contend with juggling the same sets of ball, but in addition contend with providing effective support to each other in their business, while doing their best to maintain the vibrancy and romance in their own personal relationships.
Truth be told, a widely held view is that working with your spouse is an almost guaranteed recipe for disaster, marital challenges, business and personal frustrations, and enterprise mediocrity. At the Double Impact Platform, we believe that while many negative examples abound, a much larger reality is that are several highly successful entrepreneurial couples who own, manage and are growing great business ventures together;all the while maintaining happy, well-balanced homes and families. Our commitment is to ensure that Copreneurs in our community do not end up as part of the negative statistics, but rather as enviable examples of Copreneurs who are successfully doing exploits in their families and businesses, to the glory of God.
At the Double Impact Platform, we believe God is the Source and Foundation of all we are or could ever be in any area of our lives – personally and professionally.
We believe God is the source of every gift, talent and ability that every man or woman possesses. We believe every aspect of our lives is to be applied towards establishing God purpose and Kingdom here on earth. Programs on the Double Impact Platform are therefore designed to deliver the fundamentals for effective marketplace ministry. Using tested business and relational tools, strategies and resources – based on principles from the Word of God, we teach Copreneurs how to honor God in and through their business:
How to have a vibrant marriage and successful business relationship;
How to build thriving enterprises and position them to grow into tomorrow’s business empires and;
Ultimately how to achieve maximum impact and build great legacies by purposing their God-given entrepreneurial gifting’s in accordance with God’s will.
Whereas different individuals and organizations around the world continue to speak to the challenges associated with attaining work/life balance, hardly anyone or group is speaking to the peculiarity of the challenges that being married to your business partner can present.The Double Impact Platform caters to the needs of those of us who are privileged to have the pleasure of working for ourselves, and with ourselves. We are positioned to solve the difficulty Copreneurs have in finding other couples who can relate to their particular kinds of challenges or triumphs. We provide Copreneurs with ‘safe space’ and a forum for easy access to members of their unique Tribe, helping them maneuver successfully through the unique challenges of working with a spouse, create effective boundaries between their work and marriages, and literally ‘exhale’ as they gain from the shared experiences and wisdom of other couples in business together.
We invite you to connect with other like-minded Copreneurs on through the Double Impact Platform.
