I am so excited to announce my next book coming out in January 2020!

It's called, The Secret Sauce of Downsizing and this book is different than my other books because it is a compilation effort. I've asked five of my professional friends to add their expertise to this book as a collaboration because there are so many aspects of downsizing that need to be discussed.

We're finalizing the manuscript and cover now but wanted to put up a quick page to share with all of our friends and colleagues who could potentially help us share this book out on launch day. 

We're hoping that YOU will help us?

All we ask is that you click the button on this page, enter your contact information and then a couple weeks prior to the launch day (January 14, 2020) we'll email you all the posts and email copy that you can use to share this book out for us. And on launch day we'll give you the link to buy it too! You can buy the book and/or help to share/promote it out - whichever you can do.

You see, when a whole bunch of people buy our book on the one launch day indicated, over on Amazon, then we have a very good chance at becoming Amazon Best-Selling Authors or even better, International Best-Selling Authors (so you can send this to your friends outside the US too)!

You can do any or all of the following on launch day:

  • Buy the book yourself for .99 on launch day over on Amazon (we'll give you the link for where to go)
  • Send an email blast to your email list and clients on launch day sharing about your friends launching a book today and will they go buy it (and/or leading up to it too)
  • Share about the book on the social media sites that you're a part of
  • Host a Facebook live with any or all of the authors on launch day
  • Offer to have any or all of the authors on a webinar prior to launch day sharing about their expertise and/or the book
  • Post a blog post on your website the week of the launch 

Just enter in your contact info to the right, top or below please and then watch your inboxes in January ---->>>>

Thank you so much, we really appreciate your support!
