Honestly, I didn't think it would work.
When I realized that I needed to quit my sales job, I looked around and couldn't find any jobs that seemed to fit me. It felt like the only valid option, after prayer and some long discussions with my wife, was to make our freelance media business a full-time gig.
But to be honest, I couldn't see how it could work. There weren't enough clients or enough projects in my mind to see this thing working as a full-time job. We had been doing this "thing" on the side for a supplemental income for as long as we have been married.
In December 2017, we launched Marken Media Co. (a name that my wife created by smashing our names together). Every month we have seen God provide just the right amount of clients and projects. Every month we see His provision unfold. We are so grateful to be working together as a family and being able to spend more time together. It is amazing to see our 3-year-old son Jaxson hand out business cards to potential clients and see him get excited as we explore new business opportunities.
So sometimes yes, it feels like you are about to jump off a cliff in faith. But for us, the reward is worth the risk even though we do not have it all figured out. He works all things together for the good of those that love Him and are called according to His purpose!
Good things are ahead!
