Aug 23, 2020 Season 1 Episode 77

Josh Gilliam, Owner of Coletti Coffee, who is Army Chaplain in Germany selling on Amazon.com in the US sits down to talk about his experiences and how religions and business go together.

So you are an army chaplain... Why did you go into business?

  • What has religion taught you that you apply to business?
  • Does moving around a lot in the army affect running your ecom business?
  • Sizing up your day.
    • Decide what I can tackle today to win, beat anxiety.
    • Pray over things.

So not only are you a family man, you hold a full time job, AND you side hustle an ecommerce business. How do you balance everything and would you recommend others attempt the same feat? 

  • Josh has 8 kids and one on the way (6 girls and 2 boys).

What mistakes have you made that others can learn from?

  • Over the last 5 years, there’s been a lot of times I’ve wanted to quit.
  • Lost $25,000 bank theft.

What decisions did you make that have paid off and you would recommend others to follow?

  • Creating SOPs
  • Networking
  • Listen to podcasts

Where do you want to take the business? Where do you hope to be in 5 years?

  • Fund a commission, getting the good news of forgiveness around the world.
  • Million dollars a year to that cause. Committed to giving all profit to charity.
