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 Art of War (Chiron Academic Press - The Original Authoritative Edition)
THE ART OF WAR (Chinese: 孫子兵法; pinyin: Sūnzĭ bīngfǎ) is an ancient Chinese military treatise attributed to Sun Tzu, a high-ranking military general, strategist and tactician, and kindred to the Realpolitik of his time, termed in China as Legalism. The text is composed of 13 chapters, each of which is devoted to one aspect of warfare. It is commonly thought of as a definitive work on military strategy and tactics. It has been the most famous and influential of China's Seven Military Classics, and "for the last two thousand years it remained the most important military treatise in Asia, where even the common people knew it by name." It has had an influence on Eastern and Western military thinking, business tactics, legal strategy and beyond.

Beyond its military and intelligence applications from earliest days to the present time, THE ART OF WAR has been applied to many fields well outside of the military. Much of the text is about how to fight wars without actually having to do battle: it gives tips on how to outsmart one's opponent so that physical battle is not necessary. As such, it has found application as a training guide for many competitive endeavors that do not involve actual combat. There are business books applying its lessons to office politics and corporate strategy. Many companies make the book required reading for their key executives. The book is also popular among Western business management, who have turned to it for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive business situations. It has also been applied to the field of education. The Art of War has been the subject of law books and legal articles on the trial process, including negotiation tactics and trial strategy.

The Science of Getting Rich
The text is "divided into 17 short, straight-to-the-point chapters that explain how to overcome mental barriers, and how creation, not competition, is the hidden key to wealth attraction." 

WHATEVER may be said in praise of poverty, the fact remains that it is not possible to live a really complete or successful life unless one is rich. No man can rise to his greatest possible height in talent or soul development unless he has plenty of money; for to unfold the soul and to develop talent he must have many things to use, and he cannot have these things unless he has money to buy them with.
