VALLEY FORGE, PA (ABNS 11/3/14)—What were you born to do? Just as each tool in a toolbox serves a purpose, everyone is created with a function, a design that is God’s fingerprint on you. In What’s Your Function? Working it Out with God, author and career counselor Aaron M. Basko helps you discover how to live and work from that function and create a career of significance.
Basko employs a framework called the PIE Principle that offers three key components for discerning the career that fulfills your function:
• Purpose—what you were born to do
• Inspiration—what you love to do
• Earnings—how you can make a living
He guides you on how to identify, develop, and interlock each piece of the PIE to create your function—showing you how to achieve maximum impact and career satisfaction.
Andy Chan, vice president in charge of the Office of Personal & Career Development at Wake Forest University points out in his foreword, “What’s Your Function? is an exceptional book that can help you determine what you were born to do. It goes much deeper than the typical career, job-search, or self-assessment book. Basko methodically guides you to consider who God created you to be, as well as to articulate your life purpose.”
This compact resource:
• Helps you identify innate skills and passions that reveal your purpose
• Guides you in matching your purpose with a variety of career directions
• Provides interactive, easy-to-use tools for creating a career plan
Great for students, young adults, and people facing career transitions, What’s Your Function? helps you understand God’s amazing grace and love for you and how you are uniquely created.
Also features ‘The Purpose Finder’, an in-depth assessment to help identify God’s fingerprints in your life and pinpoint the role God has for you in the Kingdom and in the greater world.
