In the book, faith is enlisted as a sophisticated professional fight; and the spoils of such are timelessly numerous.

Guest speakers included respected scholar Fungai Mutema, young author and entrepreneur Anesu Fombe and seasoned marriage counsellor Reverend (Overseer) Mapuranga of the AFM of Zimbabwe midlands south province.
The book emphasises that “beginning from the heart and propagating to vision, confession, planning and preparation, action, giving and relationships; he intertwined these sections, hand in glove for your easiest practice. “… if these things are yours (internalised and practiced as your first nature) and abound, you will be neither barren nor unfruitful” in any form of knowledge. For he who lacks these things is shortsighted, even to blindness… (2 Peter 1:8-9).
The launch was a hybrid event which consisted of a business shower segment interview featuring businesswoman Mamombe the co. founder and director of the Dibcon Group of companies who shared an inspiring story of her rags--to-riches humble beginnings narrative.

He addresses relationships as a fundamental pillar in leadership and life in building an intimate relationship with the future; for oneself and their work or even in organisational leadership.
