Michael wakes up in the hospital with a bandage on his head and fear in his heart. The stress of building a growing business, with his wife Sarah, caused him to collapse while on a morning jog. When Michael finds out the man who saved his life is a Carpenter he visits him and quickly learns that he is more than just a Carpenter; he is also a builder of lives, careers, people, and teams.

As the Carpenter shares his wisdom, Michael attempts to save his business in the face of adversity, rejection, fear, and failure.

I listened to this book at just the right time! I was at that point where I felt like giving up. Staying the course does not go without a doubt but it means that you keep doing the right thing for the right reasons. It is not quick and easy. A lot of people want you to climb back into the box and do things like everyone else

Lots of condensed wisdom in there. The storyline is quite nice.

the book has a lot of good tidbits, and was an engaging story, albeit a bit contrived. there aren't enough hrs in a day for the carpenter to do that caliber of work, have that deep of personal relationships, spend hrs at the burrito shop, and walk everywhere. Love, serve, and care is a good motto for living though.
