Introducing: “The Wealth Chef” by Ann Wilson

Okay – so today is the day to do things somewhat differently over at The Tabloid. Like turn stuff on its head a bit. Today I am going to SHARE THE LUV (one of my all time favourite activities and clichés) with all our lovely readers – from a different angle.  One which might appear to be as far removed from interiors as an ant is from a dinosaur!! But actually in the end really isn’t.

Today, I would like to draw your attention to a fabulous wealth recipe book – “The Wealth Chef” written and being GIVEN AWAY (Yes – you heard that right!) by the author, Ann Wilson.  A local gal who has achieved financial well being and through her book is sharing those 5 core recipes and key ingredients for building rocking wealth, with whoever is keen to go there.  Plus, she is backing the Give Away with a free 4 week online course as well.  Now what more could a gal want!!

So, this is what you do as the first step in joining me (because I can).

Step 1: WATCH THE VIDEO TO HEAR WHAT ANN HAS TO SAY & FIND OUT WHAT HER MOTIVATION IS BEHIND THE “GIVING AWAY” OF HER BOOK (seems pretty genuine to me).

Step 2: Follow the video prompts

Step 3: If you manage to set aside your scepticism & want to know a bit more, feel free to follow these links to another blog: here.

Step 4: Get started – build your wealth portfolio like none other can.

VERY BIG P.S. NOTE: Last I heard from Ann via FB, she mentioned that she had already given away over 1,500 books and still had plenty to give away.  However, the offer can only hold until January 20th 2015.

Oh – and here is another kicker – this time my opinion – I have taken up this offer, not only because building a healthy wealth portfolio is one of my goals, but also because building wealth in this simple, steady manner will EMPOWER me and you, to be able to dress our homes, offices or any interior spaces, to our heart’s delight. Something that I have no doubt many of us so desire.

LET’S JUST DO IT!!
