“Chillpreneuer” Book Series Spotlight
Tuesday, July 26, 2022
Welcome back to my Reading Tuesday’s B.R.E.A.T.H.S. blog where I discuss my favorite authors. The first week in July, first I put the spotlight on best-selling author Denise Duffield-Thomas with her books, podcasts, and money bootcamp. The second week, I discussed her first two money mindset books she self-published, “Lucky Bitch” series. The third week, I revealed her new book that was released last week, “Chill & Prosper.” This final week, I will be reviewing her last two published books in a “Chillpreneuer” book series spotlight.
Chillpreneur: The New Rules for Creating Success, Freedom, and Abundance on Your Terms
“Chillpreneur” was published in 2019, and I found it in 2020 after I had listened to her “Lucky Bitch” series on Hay House Unlimited Audio app. At the time, I was drowning my ears in business books while driving across the United States and the “Chillpreneur” book was the model I wanted to mold my businesses out of, a beautiful blueprint on how to run a business with ease, all while abundance is flowing with grace. I purchased the ebook, listened to the audiobook (on app), and had my Google Docs side by side with my Kindle text so that I could take and make notes while reading two ways!
Chillpreneur Book Review
There are a lot of business books out there, but there are not many business books that were written for me. That is until I found Denise DT, a female entrepreneur who consistently shows up with her imperfect self and uses her face to make millions. Chillpreneuer resonated with me on so many levels as Denise describes how she runs a chill business with a millionaire mindset. In this book, she reveals systems that have worked for her for the better part of a decade by showing up, making mistakes, creating automations, having awkward moments, and understanding how to make offers to increase cash flow. That is how I want to run successful businesses, with grace and ease.
Denise discussed seven aspirations she believes makes a chillpreneuer, but ultimately I need to find the path of least resistance that fits best for my own businesses and philanthropy. Chillpreneuer provides tips, tricks, lessons, exercises, and action steps on playing the business game. With the book and additional resources, I have the tools to sharpen my money mindset, release money blocks, build a business model that fits for me, attract the right audience, share my services, make offers, reflect, and restart when necessary.
Chill & Prosper: The New Way to Grow Your Business, Make Millions, and Change the World
Fast forward from 2019 to 2022, we just went through a couple years of a pandemic that completely shifted the business world. Business self-help books were flying off the shelves along with other essential goods. During that time, Denise’s books and Money Bootcamp businesses were still flourishing, and that gave her the opportunity to update her third book, “Chillpreneur,” and creating a NEW version (named after her popular podcast), “Chill & Prosper: The New Way to Grow Your Business, Make Millions, and Change the World.” The book was released one week ago today and I had the opportunity to finish it while doing my ebook/audiobook note taking strategy!
Chill & Prosper Book Review
Who wants to be a chillionaire? There are about a half a dozen “Chill-related” puns throughout the book, and that is just what I have in my notes. How many can you find, lol? The outline of Chill & Prosper is set up with the same four main parts that are in “Chillpreneuer”: mindset, business models, money, and marketing. The newest addition to the “Chill & Prosper” book are the added case studies from clients who have put the book to test and reflected their outcome. Another sweet addition are the scripts you can download in the extra resources and redesign to fit your own style.
What I liked best about this version of the “Chillpreneuer” series were the examples from other business owners so I could resonate with more than just the author, but I could relate to other like-minded individuals and their stories. My favorite part was the marketing section, specifically when Denise talks about how the size of your email list matters. As I work on different parts of my business, I can flip through different sections of the book that I am going through at the time. After just one week of being released, “Chill & Prosper” has already proven to be a valuable business tool.
Chill & Prosper Podcast
In her previous “Lucky Bitch” book series, Denise started a podcast of the same name in 2016, and ended two years later. In 2021, Denise released the trailer for her new podcast, Chill & Prosper, which is currently running once a week. The conversations follow the book “Chillpreneuer” book series where you get to hear more real-world stories revolving around money mindset, money blocks, and chill ways to run your businesses. I like to listen when I am waiting, shopping, driving, or even looking for a specific podcast with advice I need at the moment.
Final Thoughts on the “Chillpreneuer” Series
I chose to spotlight Denise’s books this month because of the impact they have made in my personal life. My money mindset has shifted and I have been able to accomplish more things such as constantly learning about my money blocks at each level, how to manifest things when I have clarity, and putting her chillpreneuer skills to test with my own businesses. I will keep my momentum with my money journey by continually inspiring myself by rereading her books, listening to her podcast episodes, writing in my money journal, and participating in her money boot camp to have more hands-on experience with a community to discuss my money challenges and successes.
Thank you for reading,
