With hard-earned wisdom drawn from a lifetime of experience, David Green helps you drive incredible results in business and life by sharing a fascinating inside look--mistakes and all--at the counterintuitive yet highly effective biblical principles he used to build Hobby Lobby from a 600 dollar startup to a 7-billion-dollar enterprise.

If conventional leadership wisdom is to be believed, Hobby Lobby shouldn't work. So why does it?

David Green, the founder of Hobby Lobby and an unlikely leader, grew his company from a $600 startup to a $8 billion company that gives 50 percent of its profits away to fund initiatives all over the world. He blazed his own path in business, drawn not from business gurus but from the pages of Scripture.

In this inspirational book, David Green challenges talented leaders with hearts committed to Christ to consider this question: What if God wants to use you to do a new, even greater work? To raise up and encourage the next generation of leaders, David Green shares 12 unconventional principles that drive Hobby Lobby. These core principles can open doors to greater success in business and life.

Whether you lead a business or a nonprofit, a small business or a multinational corporation, a start-up or a department, this book will show you how breaking the conventional "rules" of business may be the best decision you ever make.
