“This book is for entrepreneurs at heart or in practice – or both. It is for those who are searching for their own personal meaning in their work, and seeking to transform their meaning into a vocation.”
The Faculty Advising Fellows are hosting a spring Common Reading event featuring the book “Meaningful Work: A Quest to Do Great Business, Find Your Calling, and Feed Your Soul” by Shawn and Lawren Askinosie.
Shawn Askinosie is the founder of Askinosie Chocolates, an award-winning, small-batch chocolate company in Springfield. Lawren Askinosie is a Drury graduate and Co-Owner and Chief Marketing Officer at Askinosie Chocolates.
The Common Reading takes place from March 4 to April 29, 2022. We’re reading the book in four (4) sections and will have in-person and Zoom conversations with participants.
The book will be distributed to interested students beginning February 21st in 126 Bay Hall. When participants receive their book and provide their email, they will be notified of discussion times and prompts as well as Zoom links.
The Common Reading is funded by a grant from the CIC NetVUE Foundation.
