So why a "Firebox?"

OLD STEAM ENGINE locomotives had to burn fuel in a firebox to create the steam that would give them their momentum to move forward. Each train's firebox was buried deep inside, not easily accessible from the outside.

As an entrepreneur, trail blazer, or innovator, you too have a firebox deep inside you, but which of the 7 fuels you use is the secret to sustainable success.

Are you secretly driven by Significance, Artisan, World-Impact, Contribution, Spiritual, Thrive, or the Avenger?

Find out which of the 7 motivational drives fuel your firebox when it comes to your business, non-profit, startup, or ministry!
