Giving It All Away...and Getting It All Back Again : The Way of Living Generously
Join self-made billionaire David Green, founder of America's craft store giant Hobby Lobby, as he shares the key to building a powerful legacy: generosity. In Giving It All Away...and Getting It All Back Again, Green unpacks time-tested principles that will help you reap the benefits of generosity for multiple generations to come.
In 1970, David Green began making picture frames in his garage. With hard work, he and his wife, Barbara, turned that humble beginning into the world's largest privately owned arts-and-crafts retailer, employing forty-three thousand people across nine hundred stores in forty-seven states.
But it's not all about business. Giving It All Away...and Getting It All Back Again--part memoir, part personal manifesto--will change the way you think about prosperity, teaching you that true wealth is about more than money. It's about growing your faith, your family, and your intellectual capital alongside your bank account.
Green also reminds us that it's not just giving that sets the foundation for financial freedom. Practicing good stewardship also helps us pass on our values and set good examples for future generations.
As Hobby Lobby has grown, Green has stayed true to this philosophy by adhering to three key principles:
Work with all your heart for God and not for men
Think ahead, but hold your plans lightly--you don't know what God has in store for you
Consider what you want your legacy to be
Follow Green as he invites you to see that a life marked by generosity can also be a life full of adventure--a life that pays the best rewards, changes the lives of those around you, and gives you the tools you need to leave a lasting legacy.
