MAPPING THE JOURNEY AHEAD
This book starts, finding the author in the midst of restoration, and then fills in the background in the life that led to a midlife crisis in the year 2000.
The story takes the reader through the crisis, depression, and then on to the redemption and restoration of business and personal life. The author reveals, through the chapter on reflection, the personal and managerial traits leading to the crisis as well as the chapter on blessings that led to recovery.
The journey includes the revelation in a new management and incentive system that dramatically improved the authors company profits and value at the ultimate sale. The author explains how he discovered his core Purpose, in the chapter by that name, and provides a guide for the reader for their own personal journey.
Fasten your seatbelt, it's a heck of a ride.
Purpose is the poignant story of a man's journey from modest beginnings to business success through mental breakdown, financial peril and return to mental health and even greater business achievement.
To write a book such as Purpose requires an exceptionally high level of self-disclosure. Readers will be struck by the humility of the author's depiction of his childhood, and life as a young man. The author's faith in God is clarified and affirmed after the realization that his solitary managerial efforts "to keep all the plates spinning" would be insufficient to save his business. At the hour of maximum distress, he finds comfort in God, a faithful, competent wife, and his brother.
The depiction of the trajectory of Hendee Enterprises from garage scale operation to a much larger business supplying the largest retailers in the United States is exceptional principally for the granular insight into how a small business grows to hundreds of employees in less than 10 years. The author's belief that employees must share in the profits of a business and the mechanics for accomplishing this is an equally important takeaway of the book.
It was a wonderful opportunity to read Chuck Hendee's book, Purpose. I only wish that it would have been available four years back when I was experiencing similar difficulties in my own life. I certainly would not have gotten to the phase that I did on the "Chart"! Although the experience was not pleasant at the time, it was life changing for the better and Purpose evoked reflective thoughts, a renewal in faith and focus on how God, not me is in control and He is all you need to make it through hardships that this earthly life will throw your way. I recommend that all Entrepreneurs read this book whether currently in despair or feel that everything is in order. It will help you find and or keep balance in life and it offers great business, emotional, and spiritual guidance that we all need in today's uncertain times.
