After I finish reading Origin Stories: The Rise of Ministry Man, I am happy to report that the stories and insights held within I have personally witnessed in the author’s life these past 15 years. Daniel Gourley is one of the most creative and dynamic people that I have ever known, and it has been exciting to see this creativity, vision and passion he has for people summarized so nicely in the pages of this book.
Over the past 5 years, I have seen Daniel display each of the core principles he talks about emphatically in this book. I have seen the good times and the joy that success has brought as well as the hard times that all of us entrepreneurs have been through on the road to building a business. One thing that I know to especially true about this book is Daniel’s value for the people he employs and the customer’s he serves daily. I have witnessed firsthand the community that has been built internally in his business at 5 Words Media and externally amongst his customers, most of which who have become life-long friends.
I would charge you to dig deep into these pages. Every question that is asked is intentionally focused at you building a business that has no place for average. The business that Daniel has built and calls for you to build will truly change your world and community you find yourself in. So, strap in and get ready to step inside the mind of someone who has managed to stitch together a winning formula for creating a business centered around service, passion and honor.
