The next year -- the year I went from a three-hundred dollar investment to more than thirty thousand dollars a month -- I tripled my previous year's income. Here's how it happened: The office where I worked was closing, so I began to look into working at another office. While I was looking, I kept hearing inside that I should start working out of the apartment where we were living. At first I thought it was just me thinking, so I continued looking for an office. Finally, I realized that it was God speaking to me, even though it seemed to make no sense. Still, I began to take what steps I should to begin working from home. I knew I would need a fax machine, so I went out and bought one. And I had the phone company come out and put in a business line. As soon as the line was in, God showed up. I had to call the corporate office about a project I was completing, and the gentleman I spoke with happened to be the man in charge of the independent sales offices. He assumed that I, too, ran an independent sales office. I told him I did not, but that I would like to have one. He told me that was no problem, and that he would send me a contract. He sent out the contract, and just that quickly God had cut out the middleman I had been working under in the other office. Within a few months of that act of obedience -- the three hundred dollars I had paid out to purchase a fax machine and put in a phone line -- I was bringing in more than thirty thousand dollars a month.
