They said it couldn’t be done, but formally and legally, business owner Stanley Tam made God the owner of his business. To say that his business has met with success thanks to this decision would be a significant understatement—Stanley Tam's businesses are large and profitable, giving well over a million dollars annually.
Learn what happens when a man gives his business—literally—to God, and be inspired to steward your whole life for God's honor.
But this memoir, a brilliant guide for anyone starting and growing a business, is about far more than business. Abraham tells the heartwarming story of growing up in a modest home in Long Beach, New York, and the lessons he learned from his mother, father, and one high school teacher that have guided him ever since. And there is more, much more: a discussion of his beliefs about the pleasure of giving; what he has learned from Judaism about ethics and the Golden Rule; and what he learned from his experiences with the FDA about the importance of compromise and about the necessity to fight hard when you believe you're right.
At a time, when newspapers are filled with reports of business fraud and deceptions, and when so many people believe that to have spectacular success in business you have to be ruthless and dishonest, this is an account of a business life that has been lived honorably, passionately, and successfully, and with fun. Everything Is Possible is a book to be savored and shared with young and old alike.
