Hi Everyone! Sorry for the long lay off from Layupforlife. I’ve been focused on launching my first book – How to Get Your Shit Together and Start Making Money, through Kindle self-publishing. I’m happy to announce the book is officially available on Amazon Kindle and available in Paperback. 

This was a passion project that I was able to complete on the side. It’s amazing how much time and energy you have when you stop drinking alcohol! 

Most people in my life had no idea I was writing the book and were surprised when I made the announcement on social media. Writing a book is such a personal experience that I didn’t want to say anything about it until I was ready to share it publicly. 

So why did I decide to write my first book? 

Writing a book has always been a goal of mine but I didn’t think I had the ability. Becoming a blogger and starting Layupforlife got me started writing on a regular basis again. Layupforlife’s mission is to provide valuable tools and knowledge to my readers (through a holistic approach) to achieve your financial goals. It’s not a cookie cutter financial blog about investing, I discuss topics about mental health, self-care, other soft skills.

That mission inspired me to write – How To Get Your Shit Together and Start Making Money 

In the book, I share personal challenges I’ve faced and how I am able to manage those personal challenges to achieve financial success. 

My hope is that it will inspire you to do the same. I’m not special or more talented than most people but I’m able to achieve my goals because I surround myself with people who support me getting there, and act on the information I learn. The greatest myth is that anyone is a ‘self-made’ millionaire, billionaire, anything. Nobody reaches any level of success by themselves. There are a lot of friends, family, teachers, co-workers, mental health professionals, mentors, etc. that help us all get there. 

The hardest part is to take that first step but you need to take action to get anything in life. 

This book is for anyone out there that wants a better life but needs a little help getting started. 

Let me know what you think. 

Don’t forget to leave a review!
