Small Business, Big Pressure
Darryl Lyons began his career in the financial world at the age of seventeen and started his own business at a young age. Coming from a family that struggled financially and carrying a debt load that was equal to his income, Darryl had an overwhelming fear of failure and an attitude of “I’m going to work my way out of this.”
He soon realized, however, that he needed to trust God with every area of his life and stop trying to work apart from Him in order to experience not only success, but also freedom from fear and worry.
“Nearly everyone is living in fear and worry. The only solution to this…is abiding in [Jesus…] You can find other alternatives that might pacify, whether it’s a funny comedy show or substances, but it only pacifies. The only source for overcoming fear and worry is moment-by-moment dependence on Him in everything that we do in our lives.” –Darryl Lyons
As Darryl achieved success and received recognition in his community of San Antonio, other entrepreneurs began calling him for advice. He decided to hold workshops to teach what entrepreneurs needed to know. As his classes repeatedly filled up, he looked at the contents he had put together and realized that he had the makings of a book. “Small Business, Big Pressure” will teach you to step out in faith as an entrepreneur and stand up as a leader.
“There’s a whole group of people out there that are hungry for God. I want us to have confidence and go out there and be ourselves in Him and just say, “Look, we’re Christians and I’m not going to apologize for it. And you’ll find out how many people will stand beside you in that journey.” –Darryl Lyons
