The result was an approach where people were seen as a means to a business end. But changes in his life concerning business and his faith in God transformed his barometer of success, and with it the manner in which Scott operates his businesses. Now a dedication to work as a service to others has led him to opening Verde Beef in Ethiopia. Despite the warnings of financial advisers, Verdant Frontiers invested heavily in Ethiopia, and now Verde Beef is a multi-million dollar company that, more importantly, employs over 400 people in skill-based careers.
Reflecting on the Story
Connecting to your Work
Heavenly Father, thank you for the call you have placed on Scott’s life. Thank you for the transformation of work you have done to transition the view of people from a means to an end. Thank you for Verdant Frontiers and the work it does in Ethiopia . May you help me to think about my work globally and to consider ways my work can make a difference not only here, but also in other places around the world. Amen.
