Publisher's Summary

What is my purpose? How do I find my passion?

Most people wake up and drive to a job that they hate.

Think about your five closest friends. Are they happy? Do they live their lives with purpose? Do you? We put on a fake front for what we want people to see and think about us, but the reality is most people aren’t happy. We’re lost. We settle. We aren’t happy with where we are. You can’t be happy if you don’t know your purpose. It’s not possible. You want more but you don’t even know where to start. You know there is more out there. You see others having success and you want it, too; there is nothing wrong with that. You just need help finding your purpose, so you can find the success you see all around you. You can be productive, crush your goals, pretend that all the things that you’ve acquired actually mean something…but at the end of the day, if you don’t know your purpose, you’ll always feel like there’s something missing. You’ll know that you’re capable of more and that you’re not living the life you should be. You might be fooling the world, but you’re not fooling the person looking back at you in the mirror. You need to find your actual power source.

Your purpose is your source of power.

Once you find your purpose it’ll fuel you for life. You’ll do things that you never thought you were capable of. Achieving your purpose will force you to morph into a stronger version of yourself. You’ll have to push through fears, insecurities, and doubts that held you back. But somehow it’ll all feel possible and necessary because you’re purpose-driven now…and that’s the only thing you’ll ever need.

Amazing! Did I say Amazing? Yes. Game changer!!

There are 2 books that have been game changers in my life: the 1st was Dave Ramsey's Total Money Makeover, and the 2nd, THIS BOOK! Evan Carmichael's Built to Serve.

I can't say amazing enough. I already knew my WHO going in. I discovered it going positive, but while reading this book, I did the exercise again for the fun of it, and this time, going on the negative side!

Well, needless to say I was blown away to find that I came up with the same WHO, and this time, there was a surprise for me. I finally figured out why my WHO meant so so so much to me.

I know I'm built to serve. I know why, and now I have a recipe for success, how. Thank you Evan.

Cheers, Ida

An outstanding Book!

Evan,thank you for taking action and writing this book!
It is very relatable.I appreciated how you narrated the story because you made it easy to understand those challenging business things into actionable steps.
For the first time, I felt someone understood what I was going through was part of the process and gave me hope to believe it is possible to live my dream.
Evan,I appreciate you, brother.

Not worth the money

I will not buy his other book.

If you want to hear a bunch of quotes from other people weakly stitched together with a who what and how theme this book is for you.

Not for me

BEST BOOK I HAVE READ IN A VERY LONG TIME!

I thought I was “Enlightened” in 2014.
But this book made me CRY FROM DISCOVERING the #TRUTH, from THE START. I have read SO MANY BOOKS, SELF HELP BOOKS. Aside from Ram Dass, and Alan Watts- nothing/no one has touched me more, giving me more CLARITY- then Evan Carmichael! This is book is being bought in paper as we speak and sent to all my loved ones. I wish I could sprinkle this book like fairy dust on the entire world! 🙌🏻

The best blueprint I could ever imagine.

This book was so detailed with step by step. If you can find your why with this book you never will. I found so many helpful and practical tips. I really do think the author over delivered.

Service Is key!

This is one of the most profound books I've ever read on the key value of service to others! Once you give service to people and have that attitude, people are more willing to do business with you, talk to you and to be your friend! Evan is brilliant in transferring that message to the reader! His many examples, help cement the concepts into one's mind in a way that is riveting and unforgettable! He shows you how to start your business without money and how to step it up to where it brings in thousands of dollars! I highly recommend this book for any entrepreneur that wants to start a business or to make the current business much much better!
