My name is Emmanuel Solarin and I’m an author, transformational speaker and Pastor.
My ministerial walk started in 1998 when I received divine direction from the Lord in a dream (a story you’d read about in the book). I wasn’t born an author, and like you, I also had to discover my purpose. And as you may have guessed, the road wasn’t so smooth.
After completing my education with a degree in History, a course which I love very much, I resumed work in an advertising agency. I must say, it was a really good job. The kind of job where you wear good suits, meet very important people in power and go to parties meant for only the big boys. I was a full member of the Advertising Practioners Council of Nigeria (APCON).That was the life. A few more years at that job and I probably would have been really successful, having all the material possessions most people only dream about.
But as God would have it, He didn’t want me to be a successful failure.
Even though the job looked like everything a normal thinking man would want, to God, I wasn’t doing what He had sent me to do. I may have been successful on earth, but in His eyes, I would have failed.
And so one fateful day, at His command, I quit. I had to leave all the glamour to face a higher calling that not only glorifies God, but that would change the lives of people around me, including yours’. It was then I discovered that everything I had ever been, done or been saved from was orchestrated by God to lead me to the expected end He wanted for me.
The books I author, the lectures and counsel I give are my way of carrying out the assignment that He has sent me. And it is my goal to ensure that you not only discover who you are, but that you enter into your purpose on earth so that you can achieve excellence and distinction beyond your imagination.
