Can you do me a favor?

Listful Thinking CoverI really can’t stop smiling because we are literally weeks away from a big dream of mine coming true.  Publishing a book has been a note on my bucket list since I was a little girl. So it’s hard to believe that it’s actually happening and my book, “Listful Thinking: Using Lists to be More Productive, Highly Successful and Less Stressed” is going to be coming out in January.  But it hasn’t been an easy road.
It’s difficult to write a book and there are so many to-do’s to check off on the journey to publishing.
You need:
  • Great ideas
  • Time to write
  • Creativity
  • Time to rewrite
  • More time to rewrite
  • A great publisher
  • A wonderful agent
  • Patience
That last bit has been the hardest for me.  This is a culture of instant gratification and I admit I thrive on it.  I’m in the news business after all — the ultimate quick fix. So it’s been a little difficult at times to just sit back and let things happen with this book.  But I’m working on it!
But here’s the good news –you don’t have to wait until January because you can pre-order the book right now!  See — instant gratification!  Pre-orders are a big deal in the publishing world and so I’d appreciate it if you did it.  Better yet — buy a few copies if you want to get your holiday shopping out of the way!
Use “Listful Thinking” to learn how to:
  • Save time
  • Be more organized
  • Be more productive
  • Save money
  • Reduce stress
I even designed a brand new website just for info about the book at ListfulThinkingBook.com.  Thanks for checking it out!

3 Solutions for Shipping Headaches

Posted by Paula Rizzo on October 21, 2014 in Apps, Fab Find, Holidays, Saving Time, Shopping, Technology

Avoid the -Shipping Headache- (1)I know people don’t want to talk about Christmas in October, but there are only nine weeks left. If you want to send presents in time for Hanukkah and Christmas you realistically only have about seven weeks left to find the perfect gift. (Even less if it’s international!)

If you follow this blog you probably know that I like to prepare for the holidays early to avoid the last-minute rush. I’m actually way behind on my shopping. I’m usually done by now so I need to get back on track myself. While I find that online shopping has made some things easier, it brings it’s own form of problems and headaches – mainly shipping.

Fortunately this year I have found a few shipping sites that can help ease the burden:

Shyp* – If you’ve found the perfect gift for your aunt but don’t want to be bothered going to the post office to ship it — no worries. Shyp will pick up your items, package them and send them anywhere in the world for the lowest cost. It’s currently only available in San Francisco and New York, but they plan to release it in Miami soon too. … continue reading.
