Entrepreneur Interview: Lambrecht Glass
Here’s a story of some friends in Omaha and how they got started:
Mark and Kristy Lambrecht started a business 33 years ago in their basement. It all began with a stained glass class and they had so much fun they began making art to sell. Here’s a few words from Mark: ”We have been in business 33 years. The miracle is that as time went on God always matched up our projects with the property he allowed us to buy. Each time we moved the projects got larger and so did the buildings. Even now with the two locations we are bulging at the seams and when the Hawaii project hits it will be another level. We have truly been blessed with work . Praise God. I love what I do….”. How many people after 33 years can say “I love what I do”!
We met Mark and Kristy ten years ago, and Mike introduced them to the people in his company who just happened to be building a new building. Mark and Kristy showed up with unbelievable etched glass, for huge entryway art pieces and they then bought their first building in downtown Omaha. Mark mentioned that they just started small and it was so much fun that each assignment was a challenge and they’d try something a little bit bigger. During this time they had taken another class in biblical finance and learned to pay cash for everything. This has been their policy ever since and has served them well.
Lambrecht Glass Studio is such a miracle and a blessing to the Lord and the marketplace. Imagine! spending your days either drawing or painting Jesus and all the people from the bible, or installing them in a church and seeing the light shine through for the very first time. Prosperity with purpose!! Love it. Hope you enjoy this peek inside a couple of successful entrepreneurs. If you have time, check out their website. Not only is it stunning, but you will be amazed that this started as a stained glass class. Enjoy!
