Book Details

Each person is uniquely created to reflect an aspect of God here on earth through the influence that one wields. Influence, however, is widely misunderstood as a commodity reserved for a precious few. In reality, we all are designed to transform our families and communities with a transcendent message of hope as we commit to listen, love, and lead with authenticity. Second Shift is a step-by-step plan for leveraging your passions as a path to extraordinary possibilities, especially suited for those pursuing them in the part-time margins of life.

How the Blog Tour Works

The blog tour will take place February 24th through March 31St. We have provided the following writing prompts which are directly aligned with the book’s message of staying encouraged and motivated while growing your part-time passion to full-time influence.

Writing Prompts:

  • PROMPT 1: What resistance have you fought through to pursue your passions? How did that struggle influence who you are today?
  • PROMPT 2: Describe your passion portfolio (the activities that bring your heart joy) and a time you have had to pursue it in the part ­time margins of life.
  • PROMPT 3: How do you encourage people to craft their own authentic voice to influence culture rather than mimicking the voice of others?
  • PROMPT 4: How has failure fueled your success?
  • PROMPT 5: How do you leverage partnerships with others to increase the reach of your message?
  • PROMPT 6: How did you discover what you were born to do?

You can give a review of the book (if you’ve read it), or write about one or more of the above themes. The official book launch is on March 1st, but you can still contribute posts through the end of March. The sooner you link your post, the higher up on the blog tour page your post will be. You do not need any special permission to blog or use any of the graphics on this page (we just ask that you use it for the purpose of the blog tour and/or to talk about Second Shift.
