Day 20–How to Transform Your Life for $2.46

This is a LIVE case study where I am documenting my journey to becoming a highly paid marketing consultant by blogging everyday for 50 consecutive days. It’s called “50 Days to Freedom: My Journey to 5 Figures in 50 Days“. At the end of the post, you will find links to all the previous posts.

My Mom loves thrift shopping.

We went to a couple thrift stores today, and I was only interested in the book section. Which doesn’t make much sense, because last night I bought a book I’ve been dying to read called Expert Secrets: The Underground Playbook for Finding Your Message, Building a Tribe, and Changing the World (You can get a FREE copy here — just pay shipping & handling)

In the past, I have found some phenomenal books at thrift stores, and am always looking to add to my collection.

Our first stop, I found 2 books that I have never heard of, but both had hundreds of 5 star reviews on Amazon.

The first book was called 177 Mental Toughness Secrets of the World Class: The Thought Processes, Habits and Philosophies of the Great Ones, 3rd Edition 3rd ed. Edition (click the link to purchase)

Anything to improve mental toughness, is a book I want to read. This is a list type book, so doesn’t necessarily have to be read in order. It’s a book to pick up and read a few secrets here and there.

Amazon: $14.01

Thrift Store: $0.49

The other book I bought at this store was called Verbal Judo: The Gentle Art of Persuasion (click the link to purchase)

I am a HUGE fan of persuasion, and it also talks about improving communication, which is an area I need help with.

Amazon: $10.58

Thrift Store: $0.49

We then went to another store, and I went right to the book section. In this store, I found 2 books that have been on my Amazon Wish List for awhile now.

The first book I found was: Freakonomics: A Rogue Economist Explores the Hidden Side of Everything (click the link to purchase). This is a book I have heard great things about for years, and excited to finally dive into it.

Amazon: $9.58

Thrift Store: $0.99

The last book, was one my Mom found. A book Tom Brady absolutely swears by, it’s called The Four Agreements: A Practical Guide to Personal Freedom (click the link to purchase)

This is a book my Mom has read, and picked it out as my sister says it’s a life changing book. Without a doubt, this was the first book I was going to dive in.

Amazon: $7.29

Thrift Store: $0.49

In total, I picked up 4 books that have the power to transform my life for $2.46 (would have cost $41.46 if I purchased them on Amazon).

Books are the fastest shortcut to success, and the easiest way to transform your life — IF YOU IMPLEMENT THEM!

I know, a big “if”.

Day #20 Breakdown

I did a lot of emailing today to play catch up for not working too hard the last couple of days. Trying to schedule calls for this coming week.

I started reading The Four Agreements book, AND finished it today. Reading helps with business indirectly, but difficult to measure.
