Give people what they need

Author Lee Warren and I chatted at last week's Author Fair.

He shared an obvious, but overlooked truth, saying,

"Give people what they need." 
 Money immediately came to mind. But without a printing press, that one was out. Lee continued.  

"Focus on helping people. Share your knowledge." 

Um, how? I pictured myself in the back of a pickup truck, bullhorn in hand.

Lee said, "You just published a home-organization book. Revamp your newsletter to give people free tips."
He's been an author and editor for years, and his advice lined up with:

"For if you give, you will get! Your gift will return to you in full and overflowing measure, pressed down, shaken together to make room for more, and running over. Whatever measure you use to give—large or small—will be used to measure what is given back to you.” (Luke 6:38 TLB)

So I'm taking his advice. From now on each monthly newsletter will offer three simple tips to:

Get organized
Simplify life 
Save money

Sign up on this blog or my website if you'd like to get in on the freebies. 

I just read Lee Warren's awesome new devotional, Finishing Well. 

The daily reading are short, and packed with insight.

Blatant self-promotion warning:
My book, 
Fast Fixes for the Christian Pack-Rat, is now available on Amazon.

Fast, funny, and oh so helpful
End of blatant self-promotion.

Tune in next time for "Demolishing the Time Suckers, Pt. 3"

What's the biggest time-drain for most people?
Hint: We love it, we're addicted to it, and it sucks our time faster than The Flash.
Can you guess the answer?
