Jon Acuff's "Quitter" :: Win A Signed Copy!

Prior to attending Blissdom, I had never heard of Jon Acuff. I hate to admit that, however after hearing him speak and literally having a "hinge" moment of my own, I couldn't wait to get my hands on his new book "Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job and Your Real Job."

I so wish I could share Jon's Blissdom keynote with you all. Unfortunately, it looks like I would have to fork over $100 to be able to share that speech with you which means all I can share with you right now are the notes I took and how incredibly moved I was by his words. 

I won't be overly dramatic and say that his book was "life-changing" but it has truly re-ignited a passion in me to write. To write more. To write honestly. To share my story. To work harder at achieving a balance between what I want and what my family needs from me.  

Watch this video. Don't you want to just shrink him down and carry him around in your pocket all day? No? Just me? 





So awesome. 

I've just begun to read my own personal copy of "Quitter" and when given the opportunity to share his book with one of you, I practically jumped at the chance. Actually, that's a lie. I did jump at the chance. As did just about nearly every other person in that hotel ballroom. Talk about a stampede.

So without further a 'do, be sure to enter using this Rafflecopter widget for your chance to take home a signed copy of Jon's book "Quitter." My friend Jen is also giving away a signed copy so be sure to complete the entry listed below "Enter Jen's Giveaway" for extra chances to win! 

You can follow along with Jon's blog here and his Facebook page here

  12. I hope I win this - this looks like a great read, and I've been on a journey of learning more about myself the past few weeks/months, and this sounds like it would fit right in with what I need to hear/read. And if I don't win, it's on my list of required reading so I can always add it to my birthday wish list for later this month!
