My Year of Adventure ~ Week # 32
For the year of 2017, I have challenged myself to a Year of Adventure! And, as I’ve gotten older (and hopefully wiser), I’ve realized that adventure comes in all shapes and sizes. Sometimes adventure will be the “mountaintop” moments, but most of the time a life of adventure is just enjoying the journey you are on and living it to the fullest! This week I wanted to share with you a fun adventure, being on a book launch team!
Signing up for a Book Launch Team
Several weeks ago I was given the opportunity to be part of a launch team for a new book. Ok, confession time. I had no idea what a launch team did, but I knew it involved reading so I figured – hey, I’m in!
After the fact, I wound up checking out who the author was – since I wasn’t familiar with Erin or her website. I maybe should have done that first, but when it comes to books I tend to be impulsive. And, I can honestly say, my impulsive nature paid off for me this time!
It’s been a really interesting journey!
Reading the Book
I received the book in the mail a few days before we left on vacation, which was fabulous timing! I packed it away and saved it as my vacation treat. The subtitle of the book is “Hope for the Heart of the Financially Frustrated”. And, that sums up the book beautifully! And, you know what, you don’t have to be in a lower income bracket to be “financially frustrated”. I very much enjoyed reading this book. I’ll be sharing my book review a little later in the week ~ so keep an eye out for that!
I’m a big fan of underlining and highlighting in books! So, it’s not a big surprise to know I’ve got all kinds of marks in this book! I came away with a lot of favorite quotes and phrases that made an impact on me.
As part of the book launch team, I am able to hear and share stories from some of the others that have read the book. People have been sharing their favorite quotes and how the book has been an inspiration in their own life.
For me, getting back on a budget is a big deal. We’ve been in “winging it” mode for a while now, and that’s no way to live. I know that we certainly won’t hit our savings goals by “winging it.” So, it’s been a good kick in the seat for me.
As part of the team, I was able to sign up to be part of a “virtual” book tour. So, on August 11th, the book tour will be on MY BLOG!! I’m really excited about that!! I’ll be posting my book review on that day. So, if you read it and it sounds like a good book, do me a favor and share it with your friends on social media!
Bonuses for Pre-Sale Purchase
Also, if the book sounds like something you or someone you know would like, consider pre-ordering it! There are $200+ worth of bonuses if you pre-order the book! So, for about $11, you not only get a great book, but over 200 bucks worth of other great items!!

So, keep an eye out later in the week for the BOOK TOUR and my book review! See you then 🙂
