  1. Tim,

    I run one store on Shopify (URL removed), am just about to launch my second (a US variant), and your gift above has given me enough incentive to jump onto the third one!!

    Thanks to you, and have a great holiday season!



  2. I’ll add — freshtemp — 20% off temperature monitoring for your restaurant — just call and let me know you saw this.

    Thanks Tim, I love rescuetime and shopify is what got us started, cheers!


  3. Hey Tim, Bit random and off topic but 4HB foods very similar to diet required for heavy metal detox. Add some cilantro tincture and you’d be away. Merry Xmas from Matapouri,Northland,New Zealand.
    PS: Brickwork didn’t go so well for me for a research project but Elance was impressive. Worth the extra cost in this case. Cheers mate.


  4. I tried out the AppSumo “Wantrepreneur” course couple weeks back, gotta say it was really good. Noah and Neville make making millions look easy… I would definitely recommend it for anyone looking to start.


  5. Thanks for the deals, Tim! Here’s a holiday deal from our startup. It took us a few years, but we changed our business model and we’re finally a true 4HWW biz – thanks again! My fiancee is a Certified Professional Organizer. For years she worked in clients homes to help them get organized, productive, and efficient. She captured all of her systems, tips, and tricks in one program (200+ pages, exercises, charts, visuals, plus a supportive online community forum). It launches in mid-January. We are offering a pre-sale through the end of December for $50 off. (Link is in the website field) Merry Christmas!
