BLACK FRIDAY In Broomfield, Colorado!
Need to reduce stress and create balance in your life?
Last year many people laughed at me and my blog post as I got up at 3:00 a.m. to go to Best Buy with my daughter and her fiance in Flagstaff, Arizona to buy a TV. I do want you to know that I love the small notebook computer I picked up on that day for only $125.00 and think of it every time I am in a class with my small lightweight unit taking notes. I did say I was not going to get up at 3:00 a.m. again so I have some new fun for this year and Black Friday!
Becky Hancock CEO of Calico Books has invited me to a book signing on Black Friday, in my hometown of Broomfield, Colorado from 10 to 2 at 300 Nickel St.
Calico Books is a trendy "green" book store where a reader can come and "recycle" current books and find hidden treasures. They are branching out to the "new book" line and have already hosted two local authors prior to this event and will be hosting two more local authors before Christmas. Calico Books is intended to be far more than just a used bookstore. It’s a place to come and enjoy a cup of coffee or cocoa (free of charge) and find a new author to enjoy or bring books in for Trade Credit.
There will be a number of sales going on in the store where the standard prices are already half-off the cover price of the books. Both the paperback and audio versions of the book Cosmic Cow Pie...Connecting The Dots will be half-off the retail price for Black Friday only.
There will be 10 free monkeys for the first 10 book purcahses and buttons that correspond with the chapters in the book for each person who buys throughout the day.
Eleanor Alden Author of StepWisdom will be at the Black Friday event sharing wonderful ways to deal with step family situations in a loving way. She is a local Colorado author who does workshops. She would be a wonderful person to connect with and talk to about a special customer event in Colorado.
Calico Books is the daughter-store of Booklover’s Used Bookstore in Fort Collins, CO. Both stores are owned by Becky’s family, while Calico Books is hers to manage. Becky has already made many steps towards integrating the store with the Broomfield community and trying to provide services which might not be available elsewhere. In addition to carrying local authors, Calico Books is also supporting the community by carrying gift items that have been hand-crafted by locals-such as gift cards, bookmarks, book covers, and even purses.
Becky brings with her six years experience working as a bookseller and manager in her family’s store along with a lifelong passion of reading. She moved into the Denver Area this past summer in preparation for opening the store and has kept busy ever since. She is continually trying to find new ways in which she can be an asset to the community and improve the store’s accessibility and offerings as a whole.
Please stop by to meet Becky and talk about how you might be able to create a "customer" event in her book store!
Becky, Eleanor and I feel that stress relief and balance is of major interest especially during the holidays when the effort of preparing for gatherings, parties, or getting packages shipped on time carry with them a high degree of stress. We hope to provide a brief respite during the frenzy of Black Friday along with the tools to reduce stress and friction over the holidays and well into the New Year.
The book "Cosmic Cow Pie...Connecting The Dots" shares my experience in navigating the Cosmic Cow Pie of life. I am currently an author, speaker, real estate and small business consultant. This first book in the Cosmic Cow Pie series, includes an integrated principle-centered approach for solving problems with penetrating insights and pointed anecdotes. The reader will find reality writing and honesty which might inspire the application of fourteen principles which will help anyone trying to adapt in today’s evolving world to reduce stress and create balance.
Click the link to get a free chapter of latest crowd sourced e-book project entitled “Cosmic Shift Happens tm. “ As consumers are exposed to “mean monkeys” in cyber space, the "crowd" felt it was important for individuals to understand a little bit about the thinking of some “predators” who could be lurking in the dark side of social media. The content will help readers be prepared with a mechanism to cope and forge through the mental anxiety of the cyber abuse. Understanding the rules of engagement in cyber space and how to respond should help avoid “Social Media Syndrome tm” Knowledge is power and understanding the rules of engagement can make social media much more fun and exciting.
Mid December should be the e-launch of four children/parent e-workbooks, which follow some of the principles identified in Cosmic Cow Pie…Connecting The Dots. The links show video of children using the principles to maintain balance.
- Cosmic Cow Pie…Connecting The Pre-school Dots
- Cosmic Cow Pie…Connecting The Elementary School Dots
- Cosmic Cow Pie…Connecting The Middle School Dots
- Cosmic Cow Pie…Connecting The High School Dots
