Product Description

Not many people can claim "talking vegetables" as the fruit of their life's labor, but Phil Vischer can! Starting with no money, no connections, and no clue what he was getting himself into, he doggedly pursued his dream to use his love of technology and slightly warped sense of humor to change the world for Christ. But instead of becoming the next Walt Disney, Phil Vischer found himself in bankruptcy court, watching everything fall apart. Follow his remarkable journey from VeggieTales creator to bankrupt dreamer as he shares his story of trial and ultimate triumph. It may change everything you believe about dreaming big, falling hard and getting back up again.

Publisher's Weekly

Have you ever been tempted to start your own business? First read this cautionary tale, especially if you think your ideas come from God. Vischer, a pioneer in computerized animation and creator of Veggie Tales, proves that a pathetically skinny, shy techno-geek can be hilarious even when describing his headlong plunge into bankruptcy. In 1989, "with an unflappable `How hard could it be' attitude," the 22-year-old entrepreneur launched his dream of creating high-quality Christian entertainment by founding the company that would become Big Idea Productions. Thirteen stressful years later, he was featured in a People magazine cover story "small town kid kicked out of Bible college and down to his last ten bucks creates talking vegetables and hits it big, selling 40 million videos!" shortly before firing half his staff in an unsuccessful attempt to avert disaster. While Vischer accepts the blame for the collapse ("my strengths built Big Idea, and my weaknesses brought it down"), he also details various unnamed executives' incompetence. One question haunted him: if he was doing God's work, why didn't God rescue his company? Concluding his story of spiritual inspiration and heartbreak, Vischer draws lessons from his experience for anyone who has ever lost a dream. (Jan. 9) Copyright 2006 Reed Business Information.
