Say Goodbye to Survival Mode Giveaway

Crystal Paine’s book Say Goodbye to Survival Mode was one of my favorite books of 2015. It is a straightforward, practical guide to goal setting and time/money/household management.

Say Goodbye to Survival Mode

I first read it on my kindle after I took advantage of a great deal that had the ebook on sale for over 50% off! Then (because I loved it so much) I ordered a used hardcopy (which is my favorite book form) and read it again, before passing it along to my sister-in-law. Now I’ve decided to tackle a sweepstakes, and give away a copy of Say Goodbye to Survival Mode to 2 of my followers in hopes that they can get as much out of it as I did. (If I could I’d giveaway many more!)

The first giveaway is currently up on my Instagram @ambertackles and all you have to do to enter is FOLLOW me and LIKE the post!

Sweepstakes ends at 12:00 a.m. EST January 6th, 2016. Winner will be contacted by Instagram direct message within 24 hours of giveaway closure. 

This sweepstakes is in no way sponsored or  administered by or Crystal Paine. 

The 2nd giveaway is now up on Facebook so go enter there as well! 

Also, check out my Facebook group  Book Tacklers Book Club where we are going to be discussing this and other motivating and inspiring books!

      The book club is a Facebook group and each book we are reading has it’s own event where each chapter has it’s own post. So whenever anyone is ready to discuss a part of a book they can go there and comment. I have it set up this way so that everyone can go at their own pace and still be part of the discussion. We also post memes about books and reading and recommendations and other book/reading things in the main group feed. Some of our current books are Money Making Mom, Hands Free Life, You and Me Forever, and, of course, Say Goodbye to Survival Mode.

      Here is the description/rules for the Book Club – Book Tacklers is a group of women who are excited to read and discuss enlightening, motivating, inspiring, and encouraging fiction, and nonfiction books. Book topics range from business building to goal-setting to Christian living to personal finance and beyond. Members are welcome to participate in as many or as few discussions as they would like, at whatever pace is comfortable for them. Book suggestions are welcome and encouraged!

      The Rules –
      1. Some of the topics we discuss are eye-opening, heart-changing and personal. Please keep all discussions private within this group.

      2. Please keep all conversations civil. Critiques of books are welcome. Critiques of other members are not.

      3. Admins reserve the right to remove anyone from this group at anytime, for any reason.

  7. Definitely sounds like a book I should read!

  8. Definitely need this book I’m excited currently the only mode I know is survival
