Years in Christian Ministry Prepared Julie Hirschauer for Work in the Christian Business
Keynote speaker. Published writer. Physical therapy assistant. In addition to these varied jobs, Julie Hirschauer was in Christian ministry for 34 years when she found Office Pride. The Christian business values aligned perfectly with hers and she decided to become an Office Pride franchisee in Indianapolis, Indiana.
Now Hirschauer is an area developer for Office Pride in a territory that occupies the middle of the Hoosier State and she couldn’t be happier. Initially, she says she became a franchisee as a way of paying the bills and since Office Pride’s values aligned with her family’s faith, there was no conflict. When she happened upon the chance to become an area developer with the Christian business, she was delighted. “It afforded me the opportunity to teach and pour into people. This is one of my greatest joys,” Hirschauer says.
The Office Pride area developer loves to indulge in photography and travel in her spare time and says that the greatest satisfaction in being a part of the Christian business is in seeing others achieve their dreams. “I love seeing the light bulb come on in their minds when something unchains their creativity and gives them hope,” she says, “I also love meeting my own financial goals and building something my children can inherit if they so desire.”
Having to write articles and speeches in the past has helped Hirschauer coach Office Pride franchisees through the Christian business. “My background in Christian counseling has helped me dig deep with my owners making sure there is balance in what they are doing,” she says.
John 15:16 is her life verse. “I did not choose God. He chose me. Did not just choose me — he appointed me to bear fruit — not just any kind of fruit. Fruit that is eternal,” she says.
“I understand and accept that God has placed me in my role as a business owner and area developer,” Hirschauer says, “My eyes are on the eternal in all the contacts and employees and franchisees I meet.”
