Today, I want to share with you what my favorite products from the Genius Blogger’s Toolkit bundle are. I’m just giving you a handful so that you get an idea, but the vast majority of the products are wonderful, these are just my crème de la crème top-picks.
It is a bundle of resources in which many bloggers, entrepreneurs and authors have pitched into by providing their eBooks, eCourses, printable packs, workbooks, templates, stock photo packs and membership sites at an insanely discounted price.
Ultimate Bundles offers many bundles throughout the year, but the GENIUS Blogger’s Toolkit is my personal favorite (I’ve bought it for the past 3 years) and it happens to be one of the Ultimate Bundles’ most popular bundles.
So if you’re a blogger it’s a not-to-be-missed opportunity.
Why is it that special?
In a nutshell, instead of getting 1 course for x amount of money, you get an ENTIRE bundle worth thousands of dollars for less than the cost of 1 course.
The sale is SO insane that it is available for just a limited time. The GBTK will just be available for just 6 days.
I was listening to the amazing author, researcher and storyteller Brené Brown’s audiobook on my way to my brother’s birthday get-together 🍰 the other day.
And she was talking about how we as humans have the tendency to not share our problems until after we’ve fixed them.
Does that sound like you?
It certainly sounds like me. Heck, I sometimes don’t even share my problems even AFTER I’ve fixed them.
So why am I sharing this with you?
Because I realize that I haven’t written as frequently as I used to.And there are reasons for that that haven’t been resolved 100%.
But I feel it’s important to share them with you simply so that you know that if you’re experiencing the same thing, or a whole different set of feelings and issues and have therefore been having a rough couple of years, you’re not alone.
The 2016 U.S. Election
It seems as if the world we knew officially stopped existing on that dark, murky and worldwide dark night of the soul.
I was hopeful that we would avoid the disaster the one candidate is and celebrate our first female president.
When the preliminary results weren’t shifting in our favor, I started to get very worried.
I held on to hope until there was no hope.
I went to bed extremely sad.
I woke up even more sad… especially because I was hoping that the results had turned around. That my loss of hope was just in my head. But the nightmare that I thought had happened was now our reality.
And when I saw my toddler in the morning, I got SUPER emotional. I couldn’t hold back the tears.
And there was nobody to talk to.
It was hard.
It continues to be hard because unimaginably horrible things have happened as a nation since then.
And the end of this downward spiral, that political experts said would take 10 months to sort out is nowhere in sight. I need the light at the end of the tunnel. And I’m sure that if you can relate, you do too. But as long as the tunnel is, we have to see the light. Eventually. We have to.
But in a nutshell, it’s been challenging to be cheery, creative and be able to focus on the things we love and treasure 100% because of this.
Ironically though, it’s the people whom I love that have been the saving grace during this time, including loving myself.
Hello Love and Treasure Community, I have a special treat for you. Here is a guest blog post by Denise Duffield-Thomas, author of two amazing books that will help you remove the obstacles that you have surrounding money, who will help you answer: Could Your “Money” Personality Be Sabotaging You?
It’s hard to love and treasure the most important things in life when you have money worrying you in the back of your mind.
Hope you enjoy it. =)
And at the end, I highly suggest that you take her quiz so that you know what your money personality is. This will help you see what aspects of your money personality are positive and what aspects you can tweak to be even more abundant in every sense of the word.
You know the feeling you get when you do “that thing” around money AGAIN?
Spend wildly on a new extravagance even though bills are due…
Hoard every penny even though you really want to splurge on a vacation…
Forgo a spa treatment because your daughter really wants that new pair of designer jeans…
Whatever you do with money, I bet you don’t just do it once. Most of us have habits with money — some of which serve us, and some which definitely do not.
So we do “that thing” again, and inside we feel unhappy. It’s not that we don’t want to treat ourselves, or save up money, or buy our loved ones special gifts.
It’s just that we feel like we’re making money decisions on autopilot. Like we’re not in control of the situation, and we’re not so sure we’re crazy about the results of our actions.
Well, what if I told you that you have a unique “money DNA” which is where those habits come from?
Even better, what if I told you that you could “crack the code” on your money DNA and start to leverage your money strengths, while compensating for your weaknesses — so you could stop repeating that same old money story and start living a new one?
If you haven’t tried Ebates, you’re in for a very special treat. Can I be super honest with you? I had heard several people raving about
Can I be super honest with you? Several years ago, I had heard several people raving about Ebates , but I didn’t sign up. It kept on pushing this task off, thinking that this wasn’t as cool of a plugin as people said it was.
But boy, was I wrong! And it potentially cost me hundreds of dollars as a result of not having signed up earlier.
Why do I say this?
Because within days of signing up, I had earned about $25.56 dollars cash back, given that I had made a few more purchases than usual (you’ll see some of these purchases below).
There is a time and place to teach your kids to take care of themselves. But unless paint, glitter, glue or something super hard to clean is being thrown all around, don’t worry too much about the mess that your kid can be making while making art.
Two posts ago, I shared that deciding where to make art was important. I also recommended using an art mat to protect your table.
But overall, know that you will see glue sticks out, crayons out, artwork on your home surfaces, paint projects drying. It’s normal.
It’s common to see this kind of stuff in homes where kids are just being kids, but if you’re homeschooling your kids with the Mother Goose Time Curriculum, expect to see these artistic products and finished projects even more.
