STUFF. It's everywhere. Lurking in corners and closets, spilling onto counters and coffee tables, creating havoc everywhere we look. And it's not just the physical clutter that weighs us down. Oh no, it is the stress of overbooked schedules, and the weight of life that sometimes feels oppressive and totally out of whack. New York Times bestselling author Ruth Soukup feels your pain--she has been there too. Through personal stories, Biblical truth, and practical action plans, she will inspire and empower each of us to finally declutter not just our home, but our mind and soul as well. Unstuffed is real, honest, and gets right down to the question we are all facing--how can we take back our lives from the stuff that is weighing us down? In this book, together we will: • Create a comprehensive vision for our homes, and make instant changes to improve its overall function. • Discover that more closet space is not the solution, and instead learn how to set strict limits for the stuff we bring in • Overcome the frustration of dealing with our kids' influx of stuff and implement practical solutions for keeping the chaos at bay. • Recognize the pitfalls of an overstuffed schedule BEFORE it gets out of hand, and instead learn to combat the culture of busy that keeps us running from one thing to the next. • Finally conquer that mountain of paperwork that threatens to tumble down around us at any moment. • Let go of the guilt that gets attached to gifts and instead learn to separate our loved ones from their stuff. • Begin to cultivate our real friendships while eliminating the toxic relationships that weigh us down.

Sure, I know you've heard it all before, just pick the right niche, write good articles, sprinkle affiliate links everywhere, and you are sure to make a profit. Well, have I got news for you! That's NOT what the big money bloggers are doing! Though that's not to say there isn't some truth in putting affiliate links in your blog, but just sprinkling them around and hoping someone clicks on them is the wrong strategy entirely. Thus, this book aims to reveal to you exactly what the big money bloggers really do (which is exactly what I do). Make no mistake about it, most who get into blogging are totally clueless in the area of monetization, and fail to make their blogs profitable. And since that is the reality of things, your competition is low if you do things right, the way I illustrate in this book. In fact, you'll never need to pick up another blogging book again after this book is through with you, because you'll know exactly what you need to do to monetize your blog. Trust me on this, this book is the best blogging book you will ever read on blogging, and it will show you a very true, very straight forward map, to ensuring that you get paid from your blog. The only way you can fail is by not implementing the method that I teach, so be sure to not just read this book passively, and actually implement the method that I'm teaching you, as I'm absolutely certain that it will take your blog to the next level.

Creating a Business That Can Thrive Without You

According to John Warrillow, the number one mistake entrepreneurs make is to build a business that relies too heavily on them. Thus, when the time comes to sell, buyers aren't confident that the company-even if it's profitable-can stand on its own. To illustrate this, Warrillow introduces us to a fictional small business owner named Alex who is struggling to sell his advertising agency. Alex turns to Ted, an entrepreneur and old family friend, who encourages Alex to pursue three criteria to make his business sellable: * Teachable: focus on products and services that you can teach employees to deliver. * Valuable: avoid price wars by specialising in doing one thing better than anyone else. * Repeatable: generate recurring revenue by engineering products that customers have to repurchase often.
