Mailbox Monday - June 9

Mailbox Monday is a meme started by Marcia of To Be Continued. Mailbox Monday is the gathering place for readers to share the books that came in their mailbox during the last week. It now has a permanent home at the Mailbox Monday blog.

Warning: Mailbox Monday can lead to envy, toppling TBR piles, and humongous wish lists.

I start my training at the real estate office today, so I might not reply to comments until later in the day.

My mailbox was kind of slow this past week, but since I'm hoping to do some catching up this summer, I'm not disappointed.

This book arrived late in the week:

Have you ever been through a hard time in life? Ever wondered why bad things happen? Amber Neben has you covered. The 2x Olympic cyclist for Team USA knows a thing or two about shmack- her word for describing adversity that comes our way in life. Follow Amber’s journey as she overcomes major obstacles both on and off the bike-and encourages you to join her in developing the perseverance, patience, perspective, and power than only Christ can give us. Very few people may know or understand what road cycling is, but everyone knows what it means to be an Olympian. The champion road cyclist chronicles her disappointments and failures, as well as amazing comebacks and victories-while thrilling audiences along the way with gripping stories of faith and hope. After reading When Shmack Happens, you’ll feel equipped and encouraged to face life’s tough moments, and find yourself cheering for Amber to get back on the bike…one more time. Learn what it means to be a spiritual champion in God’s eyes.

Amber is a client of mine who is touring with Pump Up Your Book in July.

The next two books are Kindle freebies I picked up.

Is this you?

  • You are unemployed and fed up with the dysfunctional job market.
  • You are underemployed and eager to use your skills to make more money in work of your choice.
  • You have been freelancing or consulting but you don’t have enough paying work.
  • You are working your buns off for bad clients and you’re underpaid to boot.

Diana Schneidman wrote Real Skills, Real Income: A Proven Marketing System to Land Well-Paid Freelance and Consulting Work in 30 Days or Less to help the unemployed, the underemployed, and current solopros who underearn to land more clients quickly. The book explains exactly what to do and say to start building your clientele in less than a month.

Put your real skills to work earning a real income from business clients (because businesses have the money to pay for services and they want your help).

What did you receive in your mailbox this week?


  1. Looks like some nice inspirational books. Good Luck with your training.

  2. I kind of like a slow mailbox week so I can catch up. I hope the freebies are winners!
