Why Does Your Business Exist?


Do you know why your business exists?

If you feel like your business team lacks the clarity you want and the confidence they need, I know how you feel.

  • What if you could lead your business in a distinctly Christian way that didn’t require you to be present 24/7 for every decision?   
  • Do you have the clarity you want in your business or do decisions often result in confusion, conflict, and resentment?
  • Is your team always on the same page or does it feel disconnected, disjointed, and out of control at times?

I’m Chris Patton. And I know what it’s like to long for clarity about the purpose of your business. I also know what it’s like to want to align your business direction with your Christian faith.

Since 2000, I have been the President/CEO and partner in our family’s group of automobile dealerships.  We employ roughly 100 people and represent seven new vehicle franchises.  Office002 copy

In addition to leading the company, I’m also a Christian trying my best to accomplish all that God has called me to do and become all that He has designed me to be.

For many years, it felt like the two couldn’t integrate. I wrestled with that tension a lot before discovering that I didn’t have to choose between the two—I could follow Biblical principles and get clarity on the purpose of our business.

Scripture says that “God is not the author of confusion.” I discovered a process that was consistent with my Christian faith and that gave us great clarity on our business purpose and direction. When my team used this process, we got focused. We got intentional. We felt more fulfilled. And the bottom line grew, as well.

That’s why I am I am excited to offer you my new eBook: Why Does Your Business Exist? A Christian Business Guide to Creating your Mission, Vision, and Values Statements.


Now You Can Get Everyone on the Same Page

You may have good and trustworthy key people on your team, but they will never get a clear purpose and shared sense of direction without intentional help from you.

Until you all get that clarity,  you’ll end up feeling like you have no grasp on all that is going on in your business.

And as you grow (and you do want to grow, right?) too many people will have to make too many decisions without you.

You simply cannot keep up with it all. workplace-1245776_1920

Here’s the deal: until you get everyone on the same page, this is your lot.

 You will never break out of this situation until you clarify the purpose of the company.  

Until everyone knows and understands the desired destination for the company, they will all imagine their own destinations.  And when that happens, chaos soon follows!

 I struggled with those same challenges over the course of that ten-year period, so I get it.

The good news?  There is a better way!

A Better Way to Do Business

There is a way to move to a place where everyone understands what to do and why they are to do it—without always having to ask you.

You can confidently create a clear purpose your business that is meaningful to all and that connects your faith with your company.

I made this journey with my team, and I would love to show you how to get there:

  • Our leadership team went through this process, and the clarity we achieved was game-changing.
  • Our decision-making process began to gel because we had a common framework to use.
  • Our previously difficult decisions became opportunities to advance our mission.startup-594090_1920

The process I am going to share with you is not complex.  It is not something that requires a specialized degree to execute.  Anyone can do this who has the desire.

Once you have been through the proven process, you will be amazed at the simplicity.

However, just because it is simple does not mean it is not incredibly impactful!  

It is not necessarily easy. Nothing worth doing ever is. It requires both time and energy, but imagine what your business will experience if you do nothing?

Is it likely to become more or less chaotic if you don’t intentionally give your team the direction they desperately need?
