Mike Saumur, Zimbabwe, Church Ministry discussed on Global Impact Podcast
Talked about the ministry aspect but I've been in startups new businesses and obviously the the cost aspect when you had this dream in your mind and and you've got an idea like man. I really want to get it obviously with you. Many times me in the past the financial chill obstacles were just too much. I need a person to do this and I don't know how to do this. I don't advocate this. So for many people out there thinking about starting a a business this does give them the opportunity or maybe even growing their businesses in a different area. They may say you know. I'm I'm in the This this trainer through this mode or this canal of my business this marketing channel and I would like to to venture out and try it in this because I think I could be successful but cost is always the a hurdle in the objective and and just maybe a little bit more about how. That's allowed you to do what you do. Yeah well like I said I definitely wouldn't have been able to uh-huh tackle this dream without having the opportunity to get the employees that I've got at the price that we have have gotten in that and so you know we have five now and looking to grow that over two thousand some twenty to twenty five or thirty or more this year and there's a there's a big need out there for faith based high quality animation. Listen and again to be able to offer a high quality product at a very reasonable price to faith-based ministries into others will allow us to to grow that team over there and oftentimes your payroll is overwhelming Wyoming. To the point. Where you you know? You can't build your company the way you want to just because you can never get ahead of yourself and by utilizing people in Zimbabwe. I think you can. I think you can generate the revenue and bring people on while still generating sufficient. Oh Shit revenue and that's for me the key to growing this thing and that that's one of my partners objective all along has I've been to grow this business. Because we know that each person we add to a client or to one of our companies it significantly impacting possibly six or eight people. It's not only sponsoring that that person that works for us that team member but it it could be their children their spouse and most likely it's other a member of their family their their mother brother sister. So it's it's a true blessing knowing that each person we put as we say a button to see a we. Actually we are are having a major impact on the ministry in Africa's well yeah most definitely and I'm excited about you know making a difference in the lives of many many many more. Well you truly are the numbers out there. Say that less than four percent of the people in the world actually set goals the number of people that probably then have those dreams get squished because they they look at uc the financial santeuil burden. I'm going to have and they gotta keep working their job because obviously we have obligations. So we've got some things working for twenty twenty dream starter packages that were excited about where the people like yourself can can can take leverage their business and and make it successful while same time being diligent legit to see that they're impacting ministries. And giving back to God in a way that we we we all are looking for to be impactful in our lives more than just the the standard tie if you will. We're making an impact on on people's lives as well Mike. I would ask what what what kind of to kind of wrap this up a little bit. But Comey what's your next big goal or big dream. What are you see for? Not only your company and Your Business but also your ministry. Because we'll I'll say after twenty plus years in the ministry you're really you've always been an impact but this is also making a major impact. So what's your next. Step your next bill. So the ultimate goal is we want to produce a feature length animated film that's faith-based that reveals Christ nice to the world in a way that would be fairly unexpected the large passion. We have why we call it our company I see it productions. Is I believe that. Unfortunately Christianity has a negative connotation these days in a lot of people's minds. And that's because of a lot of You know bad experience. Or they're listening to social media or politics or or whatever and they don't really understand who Christ is and what he did for us and coming at them with a Christian message. That is kind of in your face more often. They'll turn you tune you out before you even get a chance to share with them and so we want to develop media. That has an Aha moment and I see it moment somewhere within the media that allows them to go wait a minute. That's who cries deuce. Okay that's not at all my expected suspected or what I was taught or what I believe and so our vision goal is to produce media. That does that. Our goal is to build an animation company over there in Zimbabwe. Utilizing you guys and I would love to have two three four hundred people over there that are able to to just knock out incredible products that are making a difference in the lives. The people so short term goals probably twenty five to thirty this year and then long term goals would be within two or three years having having enough employees that are handling and managing smaller projects. But then being able to turn. And maybe you ll is whole company to do a feature film well. Hey Man I love that and we've already got your space reserved on the outside of the building and says I see production problem at all. Well Mike I truly appreciate it a thing. I do want to say that he is able to see. The potential in everybody got through the ministry he even elevated me in the church. I became the director of the potty patrol.
