Higher Power Business by George Lovato Jr. is a non-fiction book that provides profound insight to the business world from a godly perspective. In a world that is ruled by political correctness, business and religious beliefs barely ever come together. George Lovato Jr. disagrees with this notion. Better still, he can prove that when we genuinely involve God in our businesses, we are more likely to succeed and find the whole process more meaningful. The author has lived out this principle, tried and tested it and expounds on it in this aptly-named book.
As a corporate finance consultant, George Lovato Jr. has worked to revive businesses in different industries. In some cases, he, with the cooperation of the client, managed to turn things around. In other cases, they were not so fortunate. The reasons for failure seemed to be common despite the industries in which the businesses belonged to while the involvement of God majorly through prayers, always seemed to provide a conduit for success.
I loved basically everything contained in this book. First, the book opens with an interesting scene, a typical case of people’s separation of God and business. This created that critical initial interest in me to continue reading the book. The author continues to show the reader how God is already in their business and the importance of being open to God. He emphasizes the importance of the authentic expression of love in the workplace while keeping a look-out for God’s signs. Still, there are so many thought-provoking truths contained in Higher Power Business that if I had to list them all, I would have to rewrite the whole book in this review.
There are keenly-selected accounts of George Lovato Jr.’s encounters in his line of work. They helped me internalize the message and appreciate the advice the author offers.
I loved that the author writes pretty openly and strongly about his opinion of the subject matter. His unfeigned focus on a love for others and not superficial and selfish efforts was touching. The narration contains some hints of humor. All these facets of the book blended really well together.
I rate Higher Power Business 4 out of 4 stars and I will definitely grab myself a copy of The Common Denominators of an Unprofitable Business by the same author. This book definitely changed my perspective and challenged me to apply my Biblical knowledge in laying the foundation and growing my businesses.
