RETAILOBSERVER.COM DECEMBER 2019 14 I n my book, Bigger Than Business: Real-World Stories of Business Owners Living Their Purpose, I present eight inspiring and thought- provoking stories of faith-based business owners from six continents living out the purpose for which God created them in their unique business settings. I personally visited with and interviewed each one of these highly respected leaders. With total transparency, they shared their real-world challenges with me, revealing how they called upon and applied biblical principles and their unique abilities to persevere and overcome. These men and women represent a very small fraction of a worldwide movement of business owners who understand that God created them to serve Him right where they are, at the helm of the business with which He has blessed them. Learning how they have achieved their success is fascinating, and the business wisdom they share is enlightening. But it's what drives them, why they do what they do, that reveals the heart of their stories. Did you know you can become better equipped to fully and effectively serve God right where you are – in and through the business that He has entrusted to you? It all starts as you get greater clarity about what you value, find confidence about how you can pursue what you value, and discover your commitment to relinquish your control of the outcome to the Creator. I passionately believe that leaders worldwide have a unique opportunity to change the world in a fundamental and essential manner: fundamental because what the book's subjects are doing is at the core of why we were all created; essential because their stories reveal the key to how humanity was designed by God to live and thrive together. I'm confident you will find their stories, and the business wisdom they share, to be captivating and inspiring. Most importantly, I hope that these stories cause you to look at why you do what you do in a whole new way.
