Good Morning everyone. I hope that you are all doing well. I debated on writing this post. I figured what will be will be. While this is always going to be true I need to step outside my comfort zone especially if I want a better chance of something changing. So what is going on with me?
First, my mother and I are now teaming together to be consultants for Perfectly Posh. I can tell you that I never thought I would sell for a direct sales company. I knew that IF that ever happened then it would have to be a company that I knew I could stand behind.
To kick things off we are doing a fundraiser for the flood victims in WV. We are donating 50% of our commission.
You just need to be sure that when you check out that you make sure to click on event and click Ahh Posh Fundraiser. If you do not do this there is no way I can go back and change it and it won’t be included in the fundraiser.
The second thing going on is that I am taking a leap to be my own boss and make something happen that I have wanted to for a while now. Have you taken part in any monthly subscription plans? Most of the ones I have done have involved books, of course. 😉
I want to start a monthly subscription book box that is a little different than other ones. Majority of them include a book that either came out that month or the one before. I want to focus on the authors that we wish more people would talk about. I’m calling it Hidden Gems Book Box.
It would be mainly young adult books that we focus on but sometimes I’ll include a New Adult book. The reason I want to do this is because as readers we like to read the books that others are talking about but sometimes we have books that we wish had gotten more recognition. Authors put a lot of hard work, time and energy into their books and deserve time in the spotlight.
I will be sticking to books that have been published in the last 5 years. I know that is a crazy thought cause hello what about doubles? But this is why I like to do the research and see how much talk there has been on a book.
I want to keep the packaging simple so that the rest of the money can go to the book and 1 or two items to go with it. If possible I would like to reach out to the author to see if they would like to include a Q&A or a note. Of course I wouldn’t ask them to write that many just one and I can make copies. I’m sure they can make better use of their time to you know perhaps writing another book. Lol
For the item to go with the book I would like to stick with other small businesses as much as possible because I think it is important to help each other. I am doing as much planning as possible to be prepared that if this can happen that I am ready to go. I know that life can happen but I don’t want to delay. I want to send the first box in January. I have a list already of authors I would love to include if I am able to make this dream a reality but please feel free to leave a comment and tell me who you wish more people would talk about.
You can order the first box now. If you do then you get a coupon discount for the next one.
