Write Publish Profit 5.0 Super Stack from Infostack

If you remember, a few months ago, I launched Self-Publishing for Beginners via Teachable. My goal was to provide a resource for aspiring writers to learn about the ins and out of self-publishing without being overwhelmed. Well, much to my delight, one of my courses, A Beginner’s Guide to Book Marketing on a Budget, is included in Infostack’s Write Publish Profit 5.0 Super Stack, available June 7-12.

What is Infostack?

Before sharing the tidbits I’m most excited about, I thought I’d give you some information about Infostack itself. Infostack is a platform that curates the best of the best eBooks, apps, membership sites, and courses on select topics and offers them in a “Super Stack” for a limited time at a deeply discounted price. Topics in the past have included healthy living, writing tools, side hustles and entrepreneurship, and even cryptocurrency. 

You have access to all the neat little items for 12 months for a one-time fee. Since Infostack offers a 60-day, 100% satisfaction guarantee, there’s no risk. If you find that the Super Stack isn’t for you, you can request a refund up to 60 days after you purchase it. 

Unlike other bundle companies, once the Infostack Super Stack sale is over, it really is over. There are no flash sales or repeats. So if you are interested in an Infostack, you need to get it while it’s available. If a particular topic is popular, Infostack may create a new Super Stack. Upcoming stacks include Keto Lifestyle 4.0, Side Hustle Toolbox 4.0, The Ultimate Crypto, The KidLit Creators 2.0, The Kick Sugar Super Stack, and, of course, Write Publish Profit 5.0 that I’m a part of.

What is included in the Write Publish Profit 5.0 Super Stack from Infostack? 

As a writer, I’m itching to dive into the other Super Stack contributions. I’ve been allowed a “sneak peek,” as it were, and here are some of the items that have caught my eye.

The Author Essentials Planner from Yolanda Allen promises to be the only business planner you’ll ever need for your writing career. Whoop! Send it to me, baby! Then there is a 50% off coupon for RockingBookCovers.com that I’m looking forward to checking out. You know that my friend Claudia Guzes normally does all my illustrations, and that won’t change. But, I do need some help with the layout. 

Beth Barney is offering a Clarity and Changework session for creative writers. Bet you didn’t know book coaching was a thing? Well, it is. And the sessions that I’ve been able to attend from various coaches have been truly beneficial, both to me as a writer and in honing my writing process and skills. 

Then Candace Havens has a workshop entitled Revision Hell. Let me tell you, the editing process is nothing to sneeze at. I am guilty of putting it off and putting it off and putting it off, which means my manuscripts (yes, in plural) lay languishing in the cloud unpublished for ages.

Blogging 105: 105 Ways to Blog and Podcast as an Author, An Expert, and a Real Person by John Kremer sounds exactly what I need to get a boost at Creative Teachings (ceflores.com), my official author platform. 

That’s really only the tip of the iceberg. There are 40 contributors (plus yours truly) providing over $5,000 of valuable content, courses, and tools. There is literally everything you need to help you get your book ready for publication, whether you write fiction or non-fiction.

La Yacata Revolution: How NOT to Buy a Piece of Heaven in Mexico

A to Z Reasons Why La Yacata is the Place to Be in Any Disaster: A Prepper’s Guide to Mexico

Your Finances God’s Way: A Biblical Guide to Making the Best Use of Your Money by Scott LaPierre

The bible has excellent examples of how Christians can live a balanced life regarding money. The Old and New Testaments provide stories and parables about what happens when rich and poor make wise or foolish financial decisions. Knowing this, I was looking forward to reading Your Finances God’s Way: A Biblical Guide to Making the Best Use of Your Money by Scott LaPierre. 

Sadly, I was disappointed with the convoluted advice and the book’s organization. Every other paragraph referenced a different scripture rather than focusing on one incident at a time, which didn’t allow for continuity of thought while reading. It was as if the author wanted to impress with his scriptural knowledge rather than offering biblical guidelines. Then there were references to unrelated topics, a whole section on how guns are not amoral, Karl Marx and Margaret Sanger immorally used their knowledge to destroy society, and some story about Abraham showing a rich fool his hovel in heaven, which was certainly not taken from any version of the bible I’ve read.

As I mentioned, the bible is full of helpful guidance about money matters, and most of those are mentioned at some point in this book. So in that regard, Christians might find Your Finances God’s Way a useful introduction to finances in the scriptures.

However, I found much of the writing superfluous rather than feasible. Perhaps I was looking for something other than a sermon based on the title. I wanted something more than generalities. I wanted a guidebook on how best to invest my resources as a Christian and the biblical support for those actions. Although there was much written about the scriptural interpretation of money and a few examples of what the author himself did, this book failed to provide meaningful steps to obtaining financial stability for me.

Beyond Balancing the Books: Sheer Mindfulness for Professionals in Work and Life by George Marino

Beyond Balancing the Books: Sheer Mindfulness for Professionals in Work and Life by George Marino is The Power of Now for accountants. It takes the somewhat complex ideas of gurus such as Eckhart Tolle, Don Miguel Ruiz, and Meister Eckhart and shows how accountants can apply mindfulness to their work and home life. 

Although the title suggests that the ideas in this book could be applied to other professionals, the metaphors, examples, parables, and situations are tailored to accountants. It is masterfully crafted in that regard. The challenges unique to financial tasks, including stress during tax season, working with demanding clients, and the accountant’s own personal baggage regarding money, were addressed. 

There are biblical excerpts, quotes from famous people like Einstein, and short poems that the author wrote to aid readers in finding inner peace through mindful activity. In addition, there are some links to the author’s YouTube channel for further guided meditations, while others are written out for the reader. 

I’m not sure that I could pick my favorite part. I enjoyed the meditation exercises. I loved the short poems. I chuckled at the conversation between the accountant and their friend (a reminder to be kind to yourself). The information about the practical application of mindfulness, both in professional and personal lives, resonated with me. The Mindfulness at Work Questionnaire for Professionals was beneficial in pinpointing how I could become more present. I thought the Thirteen Qualities of an Awakened Workplace was a helpful guide in helping employees determine how healthy their work environment is. I especially liked the section about the Money Attitude Scare (MAS) and how mindfulness can change how I look at money and financial planning. As you can see, this book is jam-packed with mindful goodies!

Beyond Balancing the Books should be on every accountant’s required reading list. Other professionals may also find it useful, disregarding the extreme CPA focus. People who are not ready to start down the mindful living path will probably find this book not as helpful. It’s a longish book, so not something that could be read in one sitting. However, that’s the point of being in the present, taking things as they come, isn’t it?
