After years of learning, experimenting, and making mistakes. After months and months of brainstorming and writing. After weeks and weeks of edits. After days and days of preparation… THE BOOK IS DONE and it’s available in stores nationwide today — as well as being available on Amazon.com & more sites online!!!!
This book is for every woman who has ever wished she could make a difference, ever wished that she could live a life that matters, and ever wished that there was a way to use her gifts and skills to make an income while making an impact.
It’s really surreal to think that the girl who just wanted to find a way to bring in a part-time income 10 years ago, is now releasing a BOOK on how women can make a part-time or full-time income from home. Truly, God does exceedingly abundantly above all we can ever ask or think!
Why We Launched This Book in a Different Way
When our team was brainstorming what we wanted for this book launch, my heart was really to have it be a quiet launch. By that, I mean that I just didn’t want to jump through a bunch of hoops — or make you jump through a bunch of them.
If you read here, you know my heart and you know what I’m passionate about. I don’t want fancy bells and whistles and gimmicks to try to get more book sales. I wanted to keep it straightforward — here’s what the book is about, here’s my heart behind it, and here’s who it’s for.
The bottom line is this: I only want you to buy this book if you feel it’s truly a good fit for you or someone you know. If it’s not a good fit or it’s not in the budget, I totally, totally get that. And I don’t want you spend your money on it.
Because the last thing I want to do is encourage you to buy something that you can’t afford or don’t need. Whether you buy my book or not changes nothing about what I think of you.
So, with this in mind, I asked my publisher if it would be okay if I did some things different than a publisher would typically expect of an author:
- We waited to really start mentioning the book until just a few weeks before the launch — because I didn’t want to wear you out with stuff about the book, especially if you weren’t even interested in it in the first place.
- We only personally asked two people to do anything for the book — Dave Ramsey and Michael Hyatt — both who generously wrote an endorsement for the book. (I know! Was that not amazing of them??)
- We sent out boxes to a number of my dearest friends and said basically, “Whether you post about this book or not changes nothing about our relationship. So there is zero obligation for you to write about this book because I totally get that you get lots of books in the mail and I want to release you from any sort of guilt over needing to write about this book or promote it in some way.”
- And instead of writing a bunch of blog posts leading up to the launch, I shared that content in my afternoon #MoneyMakingMom Periscopes because I figured the people who were interested in it could show up to those voluntarily.
But I did want to do one big giveaway — something that every single reader could benefit from. We talked about a lot of different ideas, but finally landed upon one that I think every single one of you will be excited about — whether or not you need a copy of Money-Making Mom.
Yes, I’m Giving Away $1500!!
So who wants to win $1500??? One reader will win a $1500 Visa gift card this week and I can’t wait to see who wins!
We’d love for you to use this money to fund a new business, expand your business, pay down debt, invest in something, or use it in some way that will make a big impact on your family and others.
This giveaway is generously being funded by my publishers and they’ve asked if we could ask you to do one of three things to enter the giveaway. I know I don’t usually ask you to anything in order to enter a giveaway, but we want to honor their request. I hope that you’ll maybe want to spread the word about this book to those you know who might be interested in it, even if it’s not a book you need to read right now.
So in advance, I want to say thank you for your willingness to participate in a giveaway that does have a few “hoops to jump through”. It’s not our usual method, but thank you for grace for this special exception.
Fineprint: Must be 18 years or older and a resident of the United States to win. One winner will be chosen at random. If chosen, the winner must complete a tax form for Thomas Nelson Publishers before the $1,500 gift card will be issued.
