An Entrepreneurial Struggle with Faith
This week on the Follower Of One Podcast, Mike speaks with Lee Whitehead. Lee has caught the entrepreneur bug and started his consulting firm called UVOICE Consulting, Inc., focusing on marketing, sales enabling, and technology audits. He has been working with Follower Of One in several capacities including, editing and producing our podcast. Lee was born and raised in the Dallas, Texas area and his work with us began with a chance encounter between him and Mike at a local Panera Bread, of all places.

Lee grew up in Texas going to a Baptist church every Sunday alongside his parents and was originally baptized at the age of nine or ten. That young Lee had an epiphany while under the water that has stuck with him to this day. Having always been afraid to open his eyes underwater, young Lee opened them for the first time while being dunked under during his baptism and realized that he could do it. That day he got a little taste of God removing his fears. Growing up on a golf course, Lee excelled at playing the sport but a twist of fate at a skateboard park would later lead him to the love of his life.
The Struggle Has Been Constant
In college, Lee began to question his faith, as is common for people who are out on their own for the very first time in their lives. The struggle has been constant as studying and then work, began to take up his time and his faith moved to the back burner. It wasn’t until Lee had that “chance” encounter with Mike and began working for Follower of One that faith even began to come back into his life. And, Follower Of One became the only faith-based thing in his life, for that matter.
Two Types of People
Lee says he can only speak his truth and from what he has observed, there are two types of people in the church. Take a listen to the podcast to hear about those two types and why Lee only really enjoys working with one of them. In working with Follower Of One, Lee listens to the podcasts, over and over, as he is editing and has found things that make him think deeper about his faith. One, in particular, Roger Courville’s interview, really made him think. If you missed that episode, be sure to check it out.
As Lee still searches for his faith he has many questions and in the second half of the interview, he hits Mike with some big questions. Is it possible to develop your interest in reading the Bible, in working on your faith, in your relationship with Jesus? Who is responsible for your success, you, or God? Where is our passion supposed to lye, with our work or with God? And, do you believe Jesus has all the answers?
