The good news is that summer is here, a time for tending our gardens, relaxing by the pool and vacationing with family and friends.
The bad news is that you’re not getting a vacation (and that’s if you still have a job!), and, yeah, I guess all that talk about global warming is for real because my patio set just melted.
And if that’s not enough to let the air out of your beach ball, there’s that new study claiming that if you sit more than three hours a day—whether it’s bent over a computer or shipping Chablis in your car while trying to get to your Hampton’s summer share—you’re gonna decrease your life expectancy by two years. Two years! I don’t know about you, but we’ve got plans.
Fortunately, we also have books. And while they may not provide a solution for global warming, they will provide some advice, amusement and answer the question: what else could they be but indie?
Continuing the theme wrought by this summer’s blockbuster, “50 Shades of Grey”, we present Breaking the Bondage of Employment, subtitled Biblical Perspective on Wealth Creation.
In this book, author Nath McAbraham-Inajoh posits that “entrepreneurship is the path to true wealth creation. He explains, according to the Bible, that this is God’s original blueprint for humanity, a blueprint later distorted by sin and its consequences. Redemption, however, is possible as individuals can still go back to this original plan, thus liberating them from a lifelong bondage to paid employment.”
And if the entrepreneurship thing doesn’t work out, you can always use the handcuffs for, you know, other bondage stuff.
Or, you can pick up How To Make Big Money Mowing Small Lawns.
This book explains how to start and operate your own lawn mowing business, from showing you “the easiest ways to get customers” and “how to set prices” to “making the most income per hour of work” and “how to keep a simple schedule” (duh! It’s called simple for a reason!).
If that’s not enough to motivate you, the author informs us that, “Grass grows and work is available during three seasons of the year.” Check back in a few months for a title about how to run a snow plow (and enter illegal alien joke here).
And finally we have Secrets of Appliance Repairmen , which sounds like it could be another book of erotica, but isn’t.
Glad to know that upfront.
“You won’t learn how to repair timers or switches”, but you will learn, “how to get qualified technician when you need one, and what to do once he or she arrives at your house.”
Now you’re talking.
