Publisher's Summary

You don't have to be an entrepreneur to think like one and take flight with your dreams.

Too often we remain in jobs that stifle our souls and leave us on the runway of opportunity with the engine of our deepest passion stalled, watching others make their personal vision a reality and build a legacy for their children. But it's never too late to get your dreams off the ground! If you long to maximize your unique abilities and aptitudes, if you strive to combine personal fulfillment with professional satisfaction, if you dream of creating exceptional goods and offering transformative services, then you are ready to soar!

In Soar! T. D. Jakes reveals how to build the uniquely personal vision within each of us into our special contribution to the world. Blending the practical business acumen of a successful, global CEO with the dynamic inspiration of a life coach, Soar! provides the tools needed to ignite our imaginations into action and challenges us to embrace our divine purpose as we align our character and creativity with our careers.

Bridging both the corporate and nonprofit worlds, Soar! is a practical and easy-to-follow flight plan for launching the entrepreneurial drive inside each of us. It provides an inspiring look into the mind-set of people who don't wait to see what will happen but strategically build the wings that will take them to new heights. So buckle your seat belts and prepare for liftoff - you have been cleared to fly beyond your fears, to absolutely soar!

Critic Reviews

"With his trademark warmth, wisdom, and wit, Jakes will inspire you to quit procrastinating and start flying to new heights. If you're ready to take the next step in your career, life and dreams, this book could be the breakthrough you've been waiting for." (Rev. Samuel Rodriguez, president of the National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference, nominated by TIME magazine as one of the top 100 influential leaders in America)
"As a 30-year entrepreneur, we have technical books to tell us how to start a new business and motivational books to inspire us in pursuit of our dreams. But no book I've read has ever combined the two the way T.D. Jakes does in Soar! Drawing on many personal examples and focusing on the rapid growth of new ventures started by women, Jakes synchronizes information with inspiration to create a perfect set of wings for all dreamers wanting to get off the ground. (Hattie Hill, president and CEO, Women's Foodservice Forum)

Succeed in Business 101

Great Audio book , for those launching out into business, or like me, have already launched out into business. Helps to put your dreams into action or to even help you start dreaming better to create an action plan, while showing you what to do and not do to succeed in business. Great read especially for those of us who are believers in Christ. Reader was also able to engage me especially when listening in the car while driving between business tasks and meetings. Highly recommended.

Ebook VS regular paper copy

My opinion: One thing i’ve learned after this e-book. Unless the book author reads it, don’t buy it as an e book. Buy a regular book. No one in this world can speak for T.D.Jakes.

That goes for other Book authors. I don’t understand why authors stop reading their books.

To all book authors: No one can ever imitate you..

Awesome tools to build your vision and the best is that it is anchored from a Christian perspective !!!

Great book, stories and the material is well covered. I m not sure if the tone was my favorite, but I listen to it till the end. I will encourage any one that is thinking about starting a business to give this book a try.

Fluff

Just a entrepreneurship fluff piece no real original information. It’s not that inspirational considering the author. I feel like he’s just selling this book based on his name brand recognition . I would look to Jakes’ other works for inspiration and other popular entrepreneurship books for that topic

I Never Expected This!!!!

I am a self-published author and needed direction to SOAR in my writing and publishing. I expected something good from Bishop Jakes but not this. This book answered multiple questions and challenged me. He stretched me, forcing me to look at where I am and gave solutions to get to where I need to be and want to go. I have the confidence to get to my next place. Thank You Bishop Jakes. I will listen again and again!

Not what I expected, but good content

I was looking for traditional TD Jake's message. Although it is in there, this book is more about being an entrepreneur. Great stories, tips, and examples.

Content excellent, voice not so good

I don't know who chose this voice to read Bishop TD Jakes Book Soar!, but it was not the right voice for this book. He has a nice voice just not for this book. It is hard for me to listen to so I am going to just read my hard copy.

Did Not Resignate w/ Me

T.D. Jake's interviews were more helpful to me than the literature within the pages of this book. Great metaphoric connection of planes and entrepreneurship, but nothing new and original.

A good story but narration....

The narration was far too theatrical, so much so, that it interfered with the message of the story. I’ll have to read it to get all I believe the message has to offer. No intent to offend the narrator but ....

Incredibly informative, practical and motivating

Very detailed insight into starting, growing and running a successful business.

This is an interactive book, you will find yourself making notes and applying the principles given.

This is not a passive book, this book will give you the motivation you need to do all you can to take your business to the level it needs to go.

A fantastic read/listen

Not what I was expecting

Whilst this is an interesting book I feel the title is misplaced. It’s not a how-to guide, it’s a what I did story and I found it quite repetitive. Respect to Mr Jakes for being successful and I share his Christian faith, but for me this book missed the mark.

Excellent and helpful.

I am very familiar with Bishop TD Jakes’ inspirational and powerful preaching, having watched him on screen for many years but interestingly enough I had never read or listened to any of his books until now. Soar is a very inspiring book, full of wisdom as well as practical suggestions especially for those who are trying to formulate an entrepreneurial vision or already have one but aren’t quite sure where to begin in order to get it off the ground and onwards to materialization. Bishop Jakes takes you on a step by step guide that will leave you much more confident on your ability to pursue it, and energized to begin taking the necessary actions to realize it. Highly recommended!
