Quit Your Job in 6 Months (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:

Ordinary Job, Ordinary Life


“Quit your job? But I thought having a job was a good thing!”
Jobs feel safe. We show up, do what we’re supposed to do, and a check for the same amount comes in every couple of weeks. We can feel safe, secure, and comfortable with that. We can budget for housing, transportation, and food. We might even get a few weeks of vacation each year and have enough left over to go somewhere nice. So what’s the problem?

Average Isn’t Satisfying, and Repetition is Drudgery


The problem is that average just isn’t satisfying. We can be thankful that we’re not homeless or completely impoverished all we want, but that still doesn’t scratch the itch we all have to live an extraordinary life—to spend more time doing what we love, less time doing what we don’t love, and have more financial wealth to support our adventures.

On top of that, most jobs involve doing the same things over and over again. You don’t learn. One day blends into the next. You don’t grow. Your life lacks richness, diversity, and excitement. All put together this doesn’t make for a very inspiring way to live the one life you get.

Quit, and Do Your Own Sh*t


In Quit Your Job in 6 Months: Why You Should Quit Your Job and How You Can, author and internet entrepreneur Buck Flogging reveals all of his internet business secrets to help you build a business from zero to $100 per day or more in 6 months or less—all in your spare time using time-efficient tactics that work, with minimal startup costs.

If you want a shot at achieving real wealth and living the dream life of freedom to work anywhere in the world with an internet connection, the four book Quit Your Job in 6 Months series will teach you everything you need to know.

Available in paperback, audiobook, and as an eBook for instant download on major book retailers everywhere.

7 Minute Change (3 Book Series)
From Book 1:

WARNING: Your Life Needs To Change...



Whether you know it or not, your life is subpar.

I don't say that to point fingers or anything.

But it's true.

Your life is not nearly as great and happy as it could be. As it should be.

Don't believe me?

How many days do you come home from work, completely beat and feeling like crap?

How many days are you too tired to play with your kids and create memories that are actually worth something?

How often do you feel like you're just wasting your time, and not accomplishing anything worthwhile?


If you're like most people the answer to all of those questions is: too often.

But I'm Here To Help You Make The Changes You Need!



You see, I used to be exactly where you are now.

Each day seemed like a dreary, worthless...nightmare.

I was never happy, didn't exercise anymore, barely got anything done, and was a complete wreck.

But then one day everything changed...

See, one day I discovered something that completely changed everything, and allowed me to do things I had never thought possible before.

With one simple technique I was able to:


  • Double and sometimes TRIPLE productivity.


  • Relieve the mountain of stress on my shoulders.


  • Pack on some much needed muscle.


  • Feel great 24/7.


  • Sharpen my talents. (And learn new ones.)


  • And much, MUCH more.



And the best part?

MY NEWFOUND TECHNIQUE ONLY TOOK 7 MINUTES!

How is this possible, you ask?

Introducing...

The 7 Minute Superhuman Method



If your life is lacking, (which, to be blunt, it undoubtedly is) then the 7 Minute Superhuman technique could be the ONE thing you're looking for to turn your world right side up.

The 7 Minute method incorporates the use of snazzy little 7 minute routines that help motivate you, prepare you, inspire you, and destine you for success!

That may seem over-simplistic -- but that's the point!

Most self-help books and courses teach you how to use long elaborate techniques and programs to supposedly change your life.

The problem?

They're too complex, so you get bummed out and quit.

And never make any lasting improvements in your life.

7 Minute Superhuman will change that.

While simple enough that a child could use them, the techniques in this book will change your life dramatically and help you break out of the "dreardom" that is your current lifestyle.

If you want to break away from unhappiness and become FREE -- NOW is your chance!

This book contains the simple and easy to implement techniques and methods that you need to change your life.

All you have to do is buy the book, read through it one time, apply what you learn, and then reap the rewards for years to come.

Epic series (4 Book Series)
From Book 1: If you walk around every day on eggshells, nervous about making a mistake or looking stupid, then you should read this.

If you have a "next big thing" in mind you want to do because you know it will be awesome (starting the business, making the big move, launching the nonprofit, writing the book) but are afraid of doing what it would take to make that thing happen, then you should read this.

The universe is very big. You are very small. In fact, you're so small and so insignificant in the big picture that you don't even register to the eye of the cosmos. The universe was here before you were born and will be here long after you're gone, and your life is but a blip on its vast, vast radar. If your life is to matter, it's not going to matter to the universe. It's up to you make your life matter in the only way you can: by doing things that make a difference to you, to those around you, and to those whose lives you touch. Time is short. You have exactly NOW to do whatever it is you're here to do, or to let the inexorable passage of hours and days and years kill your potential like fruit left to die on a vine.

The universe doesn’t hate you, but it doesn’t love you, either. You’re just an atom in its infinite workings. The universe doesn’t care if you live, die, suffer, or thrive. Whatever your life here will mean is up to you.

Stop worrying so much about what others think and start being who you're supposed to be. It's time to do some epic shit.

The Bridge of the Golden Wood: A Parable on How to Earn a Living
(Career ideas, business) “Masterful … An immensely appealing book because of its readable style … and its realistic but soft Asian-style illustrations.” – Crystie Cook, poet.
Selected by Vermont’s Office of Treasurer for financial literacy curriculum. A child with a knack for solving problems helps some hungry fish and finds a treasure. Illustrated folk tale teaches how to spot opportunities to help others and make money; comes with ideas for businesses; job ideas, money-making activities; and online resources on finding customers, managing money, career success, and moving up in an organization (for kids ages 4 and up). Young children will be captivated by the story; older ones will want to apply the things they learn. Teach someone to fish. This how-to book on the value of work bridges the gap between what kids learn in school about jobs, small business, finance, economics, and what they should know (how to serve others). 530 words in dyslexic-friendly font by former Silicon Valley recruiter and award-winning author Karl Beckstrand (Mini-mysteries for Minors [multicultural/bilingual series]), illustrations by Yaniv Cahoua and Karl Beckstrand.

Break Your Busy - Set Your Creativity Free: A Disruptively Simple Approach to Better Life and Time Management. Stop Procrastination and Be More Effective. (Work Life Wide Open Book 1)
'Change now. Unlock your time and creativity. We feel an inexplicable urgency to do more. We continually strive to be ever more efficient regardless of how effective this never-ending work we incessantly keep doing actually is.'

We keep calling for better life and time management techniques to help reduce stress and overcome overwhelm so that we can continue to be yet more productive. Despite our best efforts these surface level solutions only provide temporary relief from the persistent undesirable symptoms of the High Definition Life context we are living. 


They do not and cannot address the deeper seated source of our mutual discord. They ignore the underlying cause of inner conflict that drives this incessant cycle of work for work’s sake. To solely use time management, motivation and anti-procrastination techniques to help you feel better, less stressed and more purposeful is like trying to keep the rain off with a sieve during a thunderstorm. You will get soaked and your life will still be riddled with Busy Work.

When fully connected to your creativity, in whatever form, there is no need for the sticking plaster of better time management. Your Real Work of the moment will be known to you. Resolving never-ending priority conflicts, being pulled from pillar to post, overworked and underpaid will become things of the past.

With this book, you’ll be able to quickly identify what Busy Work is for you and start using simple strategies to eliminate it from your life. When the dust settles you will find yourself doing what you want instead of trying to force yourself to do the things you don’t. You will feel more purposeful, fulfilled, happier and more in tune with your creativity and be willing to take action to bring it to life in the world, either at home, in your relationships, at work or in your business.

Prior to recognizing the difference between Busy Work and Real Work I was disillusioned and unfulfilled with no hope of turning my ideas into reality. When I finally understood how to tell them apart I was rewarded with more time and energy with which to implement necessary changes in my life. The result? I was prepared for and available to my neglected creativity. All of a sudden my abandoned and stalled plans were set in motion again and personal success goals reached through consistent uninhibited action. Break Your Busy and yours can be too!

The Art of Getting to YES: How Using Questions Correctly Inspires Action, Agreement, and Connection with Anyone

Do you consciously frame questions so the easiest answer is "Yes"?

"We need to talk, can you meet me at noon?"

Fear strikes the heart of most folks when they hear, "We need to talk..." from their boss or spouse. Heart rates soar, blood pressure rises, and concentration on anything else is pretty much toast. Unless the specific intent was to cause panic, one bit of questionable communication can ruin your day.

Effective communication is hard. Concise effective communication is an art. For those who don’t have the gift, questions can even the playing field. That’s how questions became the foundation of the author's career and inspired this short-read book.

People who ask brilliant questions are often more successful than people who give brilliant answers. It's like the old story about the difference between giving someone a fish or teaching them how to fish. One answer won't make your career, but skillfully asking the right questions might.

˃˃˃ Personal and professional relationships are fed by trust. Properly using questions inspires trust.

Most people look for a yes - action, obedience, or agreement - from customers, colleagues, families, and even horses. This short book addresses the reasons why you don’t get the response you want and the unintended consequences of asking the wrong question.

Easy-to-understand and packed with illustrations, "The Art of YES" shares the 4 Types of Questions and teaches you to wield them effectively and responsibly. Has a question ever made you feel uncomfortable? If that wasn't the intent, what went wrong?

Written by Lynn Baber, best-selling author, World and National Champion horse trainer and breeder, and promoter of the concept of Message over Market. A serial entrepreneur, Lynn credits her success in large part to the savvy use of questions.
