Here’s the deal: about four months ago I made a decision to change my life. I wanted to do a better job following my evolving Blisses, and I needed some help.
I found that help in the form of two courses, The Empire Building Kit and Question the Rules. (See my review of the first month of the EBK here, and my review of QTR here.)
I have no business writing this post, because I’m still in work fugue mode and really should be working on my deadlines, but in case you’re interested in changing your life and starting (or growing) a sustainable “lifestyle business,” I wanted to let you know about some special offers that won’t be around for long.
Read on for details…
The Empire Building Kit
What is the Empire Building Kit? The EBK is the brainchild of Chris Guillebeau, owner of the blog The Art of Nonconformity and creator of Unconventional Guides. It’s made up of 15 case studies (some video + transcript; some PDF) of “emperors” who earn $50,000 to $150,000 a year in net income from a “lifestyle business” (everything from dog-walking to art), combined with a behind-the-curtain look at how Chris runs his own business, plus 365 daily emails from Chris with tips, tools, techniques and motivation to keep you on track.
In other words, everything you need to build a meaningful lifestyle business in one year by doing one thing every day.
The Empire Building Kit originally launched for 24 hour only, with a second 24-hour launch a month or so later. Starting today, it’s back on sale, this time permanently.
HOWEVER, if you’ve been thinking about getting it, then today would be an especially good day to do so, because everyone who buys the Empire Building Kit today will also get Chris’s guide, Backyard Biz Profits.
Backyard Biz Profits is a 60+ page guide all about combining online marketing with local businesses. It will go on sale later by itself for at least $50, so it’s a pretty cool deal.
Question the Rules
At around the same time that I got the Empire Building Kit, I bought another course called Question the Rules. The creators of QTR, Johnny B. Truant and Lee Stranahan, did interviews (18 and counting, as they seem to keep adding more) with a slew of really cool people who are doing really cool, unconventional things and making a living at it.
The two of them also recorded 9 additional conversations on such topics as The punk rock, DIY mindset; Setting your real goals; Belief and faith; Networking outside of the box [3 parts]; and The Wrap-Up and the Aftermath)
PLUS, Johnny and Lee recently added a whole slew of Bonus Material, including some more audio recordings (Best of the IttyBiz SpeakEasy; Charlie and Johnny Jam Sessions), some e-Books (Beyond Blogging; 52 Weeks to Awesome; Idea Catalyst), and discounts on a bunch of cool stuff (20% off a Great Bowl o’Fire; 50% off How to Get A-Listers on Speed Dial; 25% off everything Beyond Blogging offers; and possibly some other stuff I’m leaving out because I don’t have time to check).
Basically, you get a lot of shit. I mean stuff.
And it just so happens that QTR is going on sale today through Friday for $200 off (using the discount code qtrftw). So if you’ve been thinking about buying it, now would be a good time.
Who are these courses for?
Anyone who wants to build or grow their own business, especially if you’re interested in doing things in a more unconventional way.
If that idea has no interest for you, and your goal is to climb the corporate ladder, these courses are probably not for you.
Which one should I get?
If you could use some step-by-step guidance, and you’d benefit from a daily reminder to stay on track toward your goals, get the Empire Building Kit.
If you’re just looking for some inspiration, get Question the Rules.
If you’ve got the money, get both. Seriously. I’m glad I did.
And if you get either one, please let me know – I’d love to compare notes!
*Disclosure: If you buy either Empire Building Kit or Question the Rules from any of the links in this post, I’ll get some affiliate income, and will be forever grateful. If you don’t buy at all, or you buy through another link, I’ll never know, so don’t lose sleep over it.
