Join the affiliate team for my e-book Happy You, Happy Family, and start earning commissions immediately. This book is a practical guide for busy parents to find more happiness in the chaos of parenting life. All the advice is backed by the science of what works best.
Here’s how this affiliate program is different from others like Amazon:
- You earn 50% of each sale. The book is priced at $14.99, which means you earn $7.50 for every sale. (To keep this in perspective, you’d have to sell nearly $200 worth of products on Amazon to earn what you’ll earn from selling one copy of this book.)
- You receive a complimentary digital copy of the book for your personal use.
- You help your fellow parents take the first step toward creating a personalized plan to find their own happiness sweet spot. This book is like a personal trainer but for happiness.

Here are a few ideas for posts you could write to promote the book to your readers:
- One habit you’ve found is essential for you to be a happy parent
- A story about how you’ve struggled with your temper or patience as a parent
- Why parenting life is overwhelming or stressful or guilt-ridden
- How you realized that you cannot, in fact, “do it all”
- How you reached your breaking point and realized you needed to make a change
- A story of a parenting meltdown moment
- How a lack of daily happiness has impacted your relationship with your spouse or partner
- How your kids’ behavior changes depending on how happy you are
- The struggle of sticking with a new habit

…just to give you a few ideas. But truthfully, the best thing you can do is share a story from the heart about your own journey towards more happiness as a parent. Your readers will respond best to a story from your heart to theirs.
Paint a picture of the problem with your own personal experience, and offer the book as a solution.
