As we enter into the fourth quarter, why not end the year with some great books that will encourage you to finish what you started, give you tips towards financial freedom and encourage you to live your best life. Here are three books that will inspire you to end 2017 with a BANG!

FINISH, by Jon Acuff

This book is the sequel to “START” which is one of my favorite books. If you habitual START a project, a task, a goal, but for some reason end of quitting within weeks of starting (i.e. New Year’s Resolutions), then this book is for you! Finish: Give Yourself the Gift of Done!

 

 

5 Reasons Why I Quit My Job

  1. I was tired
  2. My kids were tired
  3. My husband was tired
  4. We all were tired
  5. But I, I was extremely tired

I am sure I am not the only one who can attest to the above. From working 9+ hour days, leaving work to pick up three kids from two different locations (with two typically being the last ones to be picked up from after-school care) to realizing I forgot to take something out to cook AGAIN, but I do not have time to stop because the boys are already late for football practice and we still have to run home, change clothes and drop them off. After completing that task, trying to determine which restaurant has half off of something (wings, kids’ meals, anything!!!) and placing a call-in order. Run to get the food, come back pick up the kids from practice, get home eat, attempt to do homework and/or study for spelling, vocabulary, trick word quiz or all of the above; have everyone take a shower and get them to bed. By now, it is after 10pm and I still need to wash a load of clothes so the boys can have socks and t-shirts for the week, spend time with the hubster, get work done for my side hustle, and wind down enough to go to sleep, only to start all over again in five hours.
