How do you honor the Lord with your decisions when there is no cash for payroll? Christian business owners face this type of decision regularly and in this episode of True North Leader, Bobby Albert talks with Henry Kaestner who faced this and other ethical dilemmas on the way to becoming one of the fastest growing businesses in the country.
