Good morning & Happy Friday friends!
Today we are off to put our toes in the sand, spray on a teflon-worthy coat of sunscreen, and not give up until the waves do. But before we take off, I wanted to hop on real quick and remind you that the special price of $99 for The Guide is ending today so be sure to grab your copy if you haven’t yet! And also be sure to use the code “JustinMary” at checkout to lock in that price. Below, we’ve included some of the notes we’ve been getting from people all over who have already finished reading The Guide, just to give you an idea of what you’d be getting yourself into! :)
Happy Friday y’all!
Dear Justin and Mary,
I couldn’t resist sending you guys an e-mail this morning to let you know how much we have enjoyed The Guide.We were headed out the door one day to run what seemed like an endless to-do list of errands when I came across The Guide and fired off a quick e-mail to Luke (yes, I emailed someone who is in the same office as me) with the subject of “Lets Buy This” and only the link. After hearing your talk at WPPI and following your blog for so long, I knew that this was a must-have.
Once the day was over, Luke hunkered down with the iPad and read your words of wisdom. When he was finished, he handed it to me and said, “I can’t wait for you to read it and then we can talk about everything.”I finished reading The Guide sitting on our front porch yesterday, and since then, we have already put into action so many of the things you mentioned. You really put things into perspective for us, and in such an honest way. THANK YOU for reminding us that booking every inquiry is not everything, that waiting for the ideal client is worth the wait, that scarcity is a good thing… and so much more!
According to what I’ve seen on some of my friends’ Facebook posts, I think I can accurately compare MY feelings about The Guide (and my general sadness once I was done reading it… because I didn’t have MORE) to the way they all felt about Twilight, Hunger Games, or Fifty Shades. Ha!
Thanks again for pouring your knowledge into The Guide and sharing it with us all.
Luke and Cat
Okay you guys, I just started reading the first few pages and I’m already getting emotional! These are some really heart felt words! But I really wasn’t planning on crying this morning! I need to get some work done! Jeez! But thank you and I can’t wait to read more! :)
I LOVE The Guide! I must confess, I purchased it back when I listened to you on the Joy of Marketing’s shin-dig! So worth it! It’s beautifully written, stunningly bejeweled with tons of my favorite J&M images, and FULL of great tips, advice, and more! Thank you, thank you, thank you!
Ok, so, The Guide is just genius, genius, GENIUS. Half the time I’m *almost* embarrassed because I feel like you’re describing ME when talking about what NOT to do, and the other half I’m completely INSPIRED because of all of the brilliant ideas and advice you’re offering up. So THANK YOU for making it relatable and useful and being honest in your own struggles, journey, and successes!! XO ♥
And a HUGE congrats going out to Karen Bonar, the winner of our This or That contest! Just shoot us an email Karen with your choice of J.Crew or Starbucks and we’ll get you all set up!
