This has been one of those weeks where I feel like I am missing everything because I am running days behind. The good news is that although this post was supposed to be up on Monday, we all still have a chance to help! Breast cancer awareness is a cause very close to my heart (see why I am Walking 40 Miles to Raise Money for Breast Cancer). Because of that, I helped come up with an idea along with a group of affiliate marketers to sell our Kindle books this week with all of the profits going to Affiliate Marketers Give Back.
Purchase any of the books listed on the Books4Boobies website before February 18 and the authors will donate their profits to AMGB. There are a variety of different books, but I’ll highlight the ones below that are most pertinent to our industry. The 4 that I contributed to are at the top.
