Giving It All Away
About the Resource:
Hobby Lobby founder David Green says a legacy based on generosity leads to true riches: a great family and a joyful life.
In his new book, Giving It All Away … and Getting It All Back Again, the CEO of the Christian-based retail store Hobby Lobby, shares how he started his dream in the family garage – caring for small things until it mushroomed to become the world’s largest privately-owned arts-and-crafts retailer.
Explaining the difference between the worlds of having and hoarding and giving and generosity, he explains that it’s important to build a legacy based upon the principle of giving. Yes, Hobby Lobby faced challenges living by these principles. When the company came close to bankruptcy in 1986 and later the Supreme Court challenged its right-to-life beliefs, Hobby Lobby stood on spiritual integrity. The company and family continue to build a powerful legacy today.
