Seven years ago, I wrote a bucket list in the back of a book. 30 things I wanted to accomplish by age 30.
Some of those dreams became realities…
Get my Master’s. Dye my hair red. Go on a hike.
Other faded away or have simply been bumped up to the 40 x 40 list.
Ride a bicycle built for two. Visit Spain. Perform in a coffeehouse with Lisbeth.
And #25 is becoming a reality in three days. Yes. Three. Days.
It has been a journey of over a year to get here.
11 months of claiming 2014 as the year of the eBook.
7 months of dreamcasting.
4 months of intense writing…writing…and re-writing.
3 months of trying to wrap my brain around how to launch a product.
2 months of reaching out for help and being bombarded with nothing but love.
1 month of shaping words on a page into something visually beautiful. Something inspired.
3 weeks of round-the-clock hustle to make it happen. Because you gotta do what you gotta do. Even if it means bringing your laptop to the hair salon. #whatwouldbeyoncedo
I don’t like to do dreams small. Not anymore. I say, “Go big or go home.” And I’ve gone big with this one. I have poured my heart and soul into this eBook project. And you guys, I am so excited to share it with you all on Monday.
In fact, I’m so excited, I can’t wait that long.
So, I have for you all today a sneak peek at my Table of Contents, Introduction, plus 2 sample chapters. 24 pages out of 143. They are some of my favorite pieces of writing from the book.
I hope you have a few moments on this Friday to sit down with a cup of comfort and read them. I hope it gets you inspired to infuse your gift-giving with meaning this year…and not a ton of money, time, or stress. Because it doesn’t have to be that way. Just go ahead and read on…and you’ll see what I mean.
What did ya think?
I’d love to hear what you thought in the comments below. And if I whet your appetite for more, well than mark your calendars, friends. Because at 7 a.m. E.S.T. this Monday, November 17th, we’re going live!
I’ll have a post published here on the blog at that time with all the details on how to buy your eReader or pdf copy. There will even be a third package that will include both versions plus a slew of extra goodies, like an audio version recorded by yours truly, expert interviews, worksheets, calendars, and so much more. (Gotta leave some surprises for Monday morning.)
Are you an email subscriber? If not, you’ll want to be. Subscribers will be the first to know on Monday morning that the eBook has hit the virtual presses! (Plus, I have a fab lil freebie gift for all subscribers that will get your meaningful gift-giving jumpstarted: a printable pack to create your own 12 Months of Dates Mini-Books.)

Thanks for all the cheers along the way. Goal #25 would never have gotten here if it hadn’t been for your overwhelming support.
