New Book Release Authored by Andersen Alumnus Mike G. Lee: The Guided Journey: Finding Faith, Purpose, and Joy in Life (Morgan James Publishing)
Mike G. Lee, Andersen Alumnus (1990-2002), current author, global financial services and insurance leader for Point B consulting
For those who feel frustrated, bored, or unfulfilled, The Guided Journey reveals how to let go of engineering this life to discover the true, individual purpose they were created for.
The majority of people today admit hating their job according to Gallup research. As we collectively and individually recover from the pandemic we are seeing what some are calling “the great migration” – people changing jobs and moving to new geographic locations in record numbers. Rather than encouraging those experiencing this frustration to continue running away from the problem, business consultant Mike Lee reveals a proven, ten-step process for people to discover their God-given purpose and set a new course for their life. With transparency about Mike’s own unexpected twists and turns, The Guided Journey includes true stories from Mike’s life at each step, explaining the struggles of trying to juggle and balance life as a husband, father of three, consultant, entrepreneur, and a person of faith. Mike walks with readers through these steps to show them how they can also refocus their vision and priorities for both career and family life while rediscovering meaning and joy along the way.
In Chapter One: The Enron and Arthur Andersen Explosion Mike lays out an inside story of the experience of making partner just a few weeks before the meltdown. At the time, it seemed liked a terrible career setback but looking back on his life and experience it was a tremendous learning experience that shaped his career, approach to professional services, and life moving forward. Mike has taken proven strategic planning concepts and applied them to the individual – “You can’t hit a target you can’t see”, Mike likes to say.
