If you’re planning to join us for the Hustle-Free Book Club tomorrow, I will share everything you need to know at the end of this post. It’s not too late to join and all are welcome!

A couple of days ago I did a quick scope where I shared one thing I’m working to eliminate from my life and three ways I’m trying to do that.

You can check that out by clicking the video below, plus you’ll get a little preview of what to expect from the book club. You’ll see it’s casual, light-hearted, and completely un-edited:

Leave it in the comments below and I’ll try to answer it on periscope tomorrow at 12 EST.
