While many people see government as a solution for improving America’s job situation, an entrepreneur and radio host believes the church is one area that can really make a difference.
At just 27 years of age, Cortney Westbrook runs a multi-faceted company that promotes people and empowers entrepreneurs through information, modern technology and networking. He is also the host of “Up Together,” a motivational and people-building radio show on American Family Radio’s sister network, Urban Family Talk.
“Coming from an entrepreneur, I think people should have jobs. You should earn an honest living,” he submits. “Jobs are great. They help us take care of our responsibilities. I do think sometimes employers do take advantage of employees, and I think that’s going to be across the board in different communities, but that’s why it’s important for Christians to own businesses and be entrepreneurs as well.”
