An inspirational novel about business and life, struggle and success
There are millions of people who own small businesses - and millions struggle. The Highest Calling is the inspirational story of one of them: Troy Becker. Troy has struggled for 12 years with his remodeling business. Not making much money, working 70 hours per week, his family life suffering, Troy is frustrated and confused.
One day, an old man named Cy mysteriously appears in Troy's life - and keeps appearing. Cy, who is on a desperate journey of his own, comes to understand he has been put there to help Troy - but why? And how will he convince Troy to listen?
The Highest Calling is the story of helping others and of learning how to do the right things to succeed. Cy weaves the most important and powerful business principles of all time into the lessons he delivers to his student, for Troy's sake - and his own. His teachings are beneficial to businesspeople and managers alike.
You will laugh, you will cry, and you will learn. The Highest Calling is more than an inspirational book. For those who seek, it is a powerful entrepreneurial education - one that will improve the lives of millions for a lifetime.

The highest calling review.
I loved listening to this book. Larry Janesky has written a compelling story to teach the lessons he's learned about business success. He breaks it down into manageable steps but understand the difficulties business owners face. I highly recommend this book for anyone in or interested in business.
I loved how the author intertwined some really important concepts of building a successful business with a realistic story line. The result was an 'easing' into understanding what it takes instead of a pragmatic approach.
I listened to this story 3 times before moving to different book for two reasons. The business concepts were THAT important to me to learn and the life struggles of both Si and Troy hit really close to home (I'm guessing lots of others too).
The ownership he has in this story really comes out in his reading of it. It created an emotional attachment to the characters.
I will always remember that a business owner's only goal should not be about making money but to also to improve the lives of those around him/her.
