Nearly 20 years ago, Simon Lee started having a recurring dream of a flashing neon sign. After months of prayer and consulting with people he knew, Simon decided he’d figured out what the dream meant: Instead of inheriting his father’s business, he should forge out on a venture of his own—and give away 50% of the profits. What sounded crazy at first has turned out to be true inspiration, as his company, Buy On Purpose (formerly EIS Office Solutions), has achieved tremendous success without compromising on its Christian values. In this podcast, Simon talks about how he built the business, being open about faith in the workplace, and keeping one’s life focused on what truly matters.
