About the Trip

My next book, Master of One, won’t be in stores until January 21; but I’m giving you an amazing incentive to pre-order the book: I’m giving away a European cruise for two, dinner with me in Barcelona, and a private tour of one of the most compelling subjects in my book: La Sagrada Familia. Here’s a quick overview of this trip of a lifetime!

The core premise of Master of One is that we best glorify God and love our neighbors as ourselves when we find, focus on, and master the work we were created to do. Out of the dozens of stories I wrote in the book to illustrate this point, none paint a more vivid, physical picture than Barcelona’s La Sagrada Familia—the world’s largest church which is nearing completion after more than 135 years of construction! The church was designed by the renowned architect, Antoni Gaudí, who dedicated the last twelve years of his life to just one vocational pursuit: building an exceptional church that would quite literally “proclaim the excellencies of God” (1 Peter 2:9). You and the friend of your choice will learn more about Gaudí’s remarkable story as a master of one on a private tour of his magnificent church—the most visited attraction in all of Spain.

From Barcelona, you and your friend will embark on an incredible 7-night cruise on Royal Carribean’s Allure of the Seas, with stops in Italy (Rome, Florence/Pisa, and Naples), France (Provence), and Spain (Palma de Mallorca). This is your chance to see the Vatican and the Colosseum in Rome, the birthplace of the Renaissance in Florence, picturesque beaches in Palma de Mallorca, and much more all in one week!

While you’re in Barcelona, I will be flying into the city to take you and your friend to dinner! Barcelona is known as one of the greatest culinary cities in the world, so I am confident we will enjoy some great food over some even better conversation and fellowship.

About the Book

There’s an old saying that goes, “He’s a Jack of all trades, and a master of none.” Early in my career, that described me perfectly. Maybe you’ve felt the same way.

I’d venture to say that most of us feel like we are making a millimeter of progress in a million directions with our lives and our careers. We are good at many different things, but we aren’t excellent, masterful, or exceptional at any one of them. We are overcommitted, overwhelmed, and overstressed, spending way too much time focused on minutiae rather than the work God created us to do.

Now, I don’t have a problem being a “jack of all trades,” but the thought of being described as a mediocre “master of none” makes me sick.

Why? Because mediocrity fails to accomplish the essence of the Christian life: to love God and love others. It is through the ministry of excellence and the pursuit of masterful work that we bring glory to God and love our neighbors as ourselves.

So, how do we find the work we can do most exceptionally well in service of God and others? What is the solution to being a mediocre master of none? The solution is becoming a master of one.

That is what my new book is all about. In Master of One, I will help you find, focus on, and master the work God created you to do.

In the book, you’ll hear more of my story, as well as the stories of more than twenty other Christians who have pursued mastery of one vocational thing for the glory of God and the good of others, including C. S. Lewis, Emily Ley, Mister Rogers, Cynthia Marshall, and Chip Gaines.

even better than Called to Create!

Called to Create gave me some new ideas and concepts I had never thought about. But Master of One gave me answers to things that I’ve been wrestling with for awhile. I’d say Master of One is even better than Called to Create.

SO good

Master of One is the white-board strategy session we have only thought to ask for in our prayers. With the turning of each page, Jordan provides answers, Scriptures, real-world examples and thoughtful resources to help you both discover your ‘one thing’ and live it out boldly.

the best reading I did

It was the best reading I did all summer. Wow! The current examples of relevant people, pursuing mastery of their “one thing” renewed my faith that it is possible, while the biblical references strengthened my conviction that it is necessary and biblical!

About the Author

Hi! I’m Jordan Raynor. My team and I have helped nearly 2,000,000 Christians connect the gospel to their work, inspiring them to do their most exceptional work for the glory of God and the good of others. That’s what Master of One is all about!

My “one thing” is entrepreneurship, and I have been pursuing mastery of that craft for more than a decade. Today, I serve as the Executive Chairman of Threshold 360, a venture-backed tech startup that has built the world’s largest library of 360° experiences of hotels, restaurants, and attractions. Previously, I served as CEO of the company, following a string of successful ventures of my own.

I have twice been selected as a Google Fellow and served in The White House under President George W. Bush.

I live in beautiful Tampa, Florida where my family has been for six (going on seven) generations. I’m married to the love of my life, Kara, and am the proud “dada”of Ellison, Kate, and Emery.

Absolutely! Each copy of the book (hardcover, eBook, OR audiobook) count. So, to get 5 chances to win the trip, you could pre-order 1 hardcover, 1 eBook, and 1 audiobook. Or you could pre-order 3 hardcover copies. Or 2 hardcover and 1 eBook! You get the idea.

I’m so glad you asked! Here’s an excerpt from Chapter 2 of Master of One where I write about Gaudí’s masterful church.

That is largely up to you! The cruise we have selected has 25 different departure dates in 2020, meaning we can work around your calendar. If you are randomly selected as the winner of the sweepstakes, my team will contact you to coordinate calendars and book travel on your behalf.
