I only recently discovered the wild, wacky and wonderful world of Marney Makridakis. My previous obliviousness astounds me -- not only does she know how to work her quirks with great results, making her a close idealogical neighbor of mine, but she's literally a neighbor, too! Well, a neighbor by Texas standards anyway, which means living close enough to someone that I could lasso a passing cow and ride it over to their place, if I had a hankering to. So Marney? if you see some crazy-person riding a cow up to your front porch, please don't call the cops. It's just me and Ol' Betsy, come to pay you a social visit!
But my neighborly intentions aren't the reason I'm writing this post. Nope. My reason is that Marney's about to release her second book (like, TOMORROW!). It's called "Hop, Skip, Jump" and it's filled with some of the quirkiest, most playful productivity and life tools I've ever seen outside of my own. It is very quirkipreneur appropriate, and I'll be giving it a proper review later this month, but I wanted to hop on today and let you know how to snag a free taste before the book goes live tomorrow.
Just hippity-HOP your way over to the quiz here: Hop, Skip or Jump: Take The Quiz, playfully SKIP your way through the questions, then JUMP into your email to download the free productivity pack.
Now, I know there are a lot of silly quizes floating around out there but I'm not the sort to send you to a "Which My Little Pony is your Dream Date?" quiz. This one is worth your time, I promise. Just thinking about the questions gave me a new perspective on my approach to projects, shed light on my comfort zones, why I struggle with the bits I struggle with, and even why I have occasional dust-ups (that's Texan for "squabbles") with my team, some of whom have different productive play styles. (I like to hop and skip around for a good long while, while they prefer to jump in with both feet.) And at the end, you'll get an email link to a beautifully designed productivity pack and playbook for your "type".
Ok, enough rambl---OH wait, I almost forgot to tell you! If you order the book via Artellaland.com on launch day (That's TOMORROW, November 11th!) you'll get a $15 instant eGift certificate! The eGift Certificate is good on any Artella eProduct; no minimum purchase required. There's a bunch of cool stuff over there for creaatives, so if you're thinking about holiday gifts, this would make a great one. You can even transfer the gift certificate to someone as a gift.
Ok, NOW I'm done rambling!
Head over to Marney's site and get to Hop-Skip-Jumping ASAP!
