Are you one of the many people who choose a “word of the year”? I recently became one of those people, and my word for 2019 is Growth.
You see, the end of 2017 I experienced something really life-altering (read more about that here) and I kind of hit my rock-bottom.
When 2018 rolled around, I was still at a loss for what to do with my life, and especially my job situation-well, lack of one. I had to stay home with my autistic daughter and had to find a solution to support her. On my own.
I vowed to make 2018 the year of Changes. To change my attitude, lifestyle, mindset. I started my business in August, and haven’t looked back since.
So you see, since I made TONS of changes in 2018, I chose Growth as my word for 2019, so that I can grow upon those changes. Some ways for me to do that is to get motivated, productive, and to get my hustle on!
Now we’re into the 2nd quarter of the year and I CANNOT BELIEVE how far I’ve come in such a little amount of time. I’m not saying I’m a millionaire (although that would be pretty nice) but I grew significantly enough to where I am able to catch up on my bills and to move out of my tiny apartment.
I couldn’t do ANY of that without taking the necessary steps to grow my business. As a single [jobless] mother, I looked for everything free I could get my hands on. Then I knew it was time to invest in myself.
Today I’d like to share some of the resources that really helped me get to where I am (in just 6 months!) and how it will benefit me in the long run (in my business and life!).

What are Ultimate Bundles?
I am a HUGE fan of things that will make my life easier. As most of us are. I am totally in love with Ultimate Bundles-have you heard of them? They offer HEAVILY discounted bundles of resources. They have everything from productivity bundles, to healthy eating bundles, to photography bundles and MORE!
These bundles are upwards of 70-90% off of their regular prices and contain a good amount of resources. The guys over at UB are always researching topics and information we want to learn about, then they go out and find the solutions for us and bundle it in AFFORDABLE bundles for aspiring entrepreneurs. It wasn’t until I got ahold the Blogger’s Pinterest mini bundle that I truly fell in love with all Ultimate Bundles has to offer! Purchasing any of these bundles are great ways to invest in your business (and yourself) for low price points. What’s not to love?
The Blogger’s Pinterest Mini Bundle
My very first bundle purchase was The Blogger’s Pinterest mini bundle (which is no longer available) and it contained 6 eCourses and 2 PDF downloads from popular Pinterest Strategist’s in the business. The bundle, which was valued at over $500 was priced at $37! I COULD NOT pass up the opportunity to snag one! As a Pinterest Strategist and Manager myself, I felt that this was a great way to get my training in and build my business. I thought of it this way: I got over $500 worth of schooling for JUST $37. I invested $37 in myself and my business and it has helped me TREMENDOUSLY in providing the best services possible for my clients.
After going through each of those courses one by one, I knew that making that investment for my business was 100% worth it. I have since become an affiliate for Ultimate Bundles, and will not hesitate to share with you (and anyone) the GREATNESS they offer!
The Ultimate Productivity Bundle
Did you vow to make 2019 “your year”? I definitely did, and when the Ultimate Productivity Bundle came out I KNEW it was the next bundle for me!
Included in the bundle were 5 eBooks, 14 eCourses, 1 summit, and 26 printables, planners, & workbooks! There were many resources modeled around productivity, such as time management, goal setting, home management, self-care, mindset, productivity at work, and MORE! I knew I found the next great bundle to build my business AND my home life.
As you can imagine, with 46 resources this bundle could be extremely pricey. However, as I mentioned above, Ultimate Bundles are known for bundling multiple resources at huge discounted prices for the public. This particular bundle is valued at over $1,500 HOWEVER it is available for ONLY $47! Can you say AMAZING?!
Bundles are available for limited amounts of time, so grab the one you want as soon as you can! Grab the Ultimate Productivity Bundle here.
Photography Super Bundle
In most of our businesses, we use photography one way or another. We may use stock photos 90% of the time, not realizing that someone had to take that picture first.
That is why Ultimate Bundles came up with a great idea to provide a bundle of Photography resources! The Photography Super Bundle contains 40 resources and covers mastering your camera, teaches you how to take better photos, shows you how to organize and edit your photos, and lastly, teaches you how to profit from your photography.
This bundle contains 19 eBooks, 14 eCourses, 1 membership site, and 6 tools. This hefty bundle is worth OVER $2,000, and as a photographer (or aspiring photographer) you know that most photography courses and teaching tools are worth it but extremely expensive. However, you can grab this bundle for ONLY $67!
This bundle is truly a steal and you should nab one before they go away forever on June 30, 2019. You can get yours here.
Herbs & Essential Oils Super Bundle
As business owners, we encounter large amounts of stress. Add to that your parenting duties and you feel like a truck has hit you (most days). Naturally, UB came up with a great way to combat those stresses and provide some relief.
Included in the Herb & Essential Oils Super Bundle are various resources on natural and DIY body soaps & scrubs, cooking guides (including recipes), essential oils membership clubs, natural cleaning techniques, growing your own herbs, natural remedies, and LOTS MORE! This super bundle was aptly named correctly and contains 34 products!

This bundle won’t last forever, and is only available until May 31, 2019! Don’t wait another second. Grab your Herb & Essential Oils Super Bundle here.
Healthy Meal Planning Bundle
I will be the first to admit, as a boss mom that works from home, I am almost always subconsciously snacking. I know my choice of snacks isn’t the best, but sometimes I feel like I “need” them.
So when I saw the UB Healthy Meal Planning Bundle, I HAD to snatch that one up too! This bundle is AMAZING and I am always talking to someone about it. Included in the bundle are OVER 1,000 recipes across 12 categories (Keto, Gluten-Free, Paleo, etc.) plus beverages & desserts, 30+ READY-MADE meal plans, shopping lists & prep notes, 5 eCourses, 5 eBooks, and 4 printable packs & workbooks.
This has to be my favorite non-business bundle and the most beneficial one to my health. I am on the fast track to getting healthy and the natural energy boosts have been helping me to be more productive in my business!
This bundle is worth more than $1,000 and I got mine for $49.95! Less than $50 to get my health in order and have my meals planned for me every day. No more scavenging for snacks or wondering what to make my family for dinner when I have been hard at work all day!

Can you see why I’ve jumped on these bundles from Ultimate Bundles?! These 5 bundles have helped me GROW my business and improve my lifestyle tremendously since January. I have invested $247.95 in my business and myself and gotten well over 10x back from it in the last 4 months alone.
As a beginning business owner that had very little to invest in her business to start with and who was honestly skeptical about spending money when I didn’t really have it, I can now say that I am EXTREMELY grateful that I came across Ultimate Bundles and everything they have to offer. I can’t say that what worked for me will work for you, but I do know you need to spend money to make money. And this is the best way to start!
Stay on the lookout for future bundles! There is something for everyone and I’m SURE you will find one that fits all your needs. Sign up for my newsletter to hear the latest on new bundles as they are released.
