How does your Pay-What-You-Can policy work?

Our goal is to get the life-changing message of Do Hard Things into as many hands as possible. And we don’t want financial limitations to stand in the way of your youth group, book group, or school going through this material.

With that in mind, our Pay-What-You-Can policy is just what it sounds like. Rather than asking you to pay any pre-determined amount, we only ask you to pay what you can afford — all the way down to our base cost of books and shipping expenses.

Just contact us at brett [at] therebelution [dot] com and we’ll work out the details.

    • Hello Blackquilled, we haven’t made a final decision about that. Where are you located and if you did order books, how many would you want? I will try to crunch some numbers and let you know what I think.

      • Hi, sorry I didn’t notice this reply til recently. I was able to find a supplier that had 21 more copies of Do Hard Things and Start Here. Many thanks!

  • Hi Brett, a few weeks ago I asked if it would be possible to send me a copy of the modesty survey. The thesis for my book, which is written for Christian women, is that the best way to decide what is modest is tho see how our attire affects other members of the body of Christ. Your survey is the only survey I know of that addresses this. Would you prayfully consider sending me a copy of the survey? I would like tho refer to it briefly in my book. [email protected]

    Thanks for your consideration.

    For Him, Dianne

  • I am a Chaplain at a juvenile detention facility with Denver Youth for Christ. I would love to get the youth this book but the facilities require soft cover. Do you offer this in soft cover?

    • Hello Claire, we would love to help you. The US version of Do Hard Things is only hardcover so far, but the Canadian version is paperback. Let me contact our publisher and see if we can get any of the Canadian version for you.

      • Here’s the update: I spoke with Random House this morning and it appears that the softcover version was discontinued in May 2014 — which means that there isn’t a paperback version of Do Hard Things in existence at this time. =(

  • we are starting a Do Hard Things discussion group in our area and wanted to see if you have any tips or input on making it as effective as possible.

    • Absolutely, Noah! Can you tell me a bit more about the group. How many are participating? What is the age-range? Are parents involved? Who is leading it? Is it associated with a particular church or school? Thanks!

      • I am part of a home church fellowship of about 6 families. We saw your book and vision as a great way for the “youth” in our fellowship to stretch their faith and view of whats possible in light of our salvation. We purpose to include ages 13 and up. Our immediate group will be about 15 youth +/-. Parents are encouraged to be involved as well as younger children that have an interest and would like to take part with parental oversight. We will be meeting at a local coffee house that has agreed to open for our event. We are thinking about meeting twice a month and reviewing/discuss 2 chptrs each meeting. We also want to use this venue as a way to connect with other young Christ-Followers in our area that have a desire to stretch beyond their daily routines. Myself along with other parents will moderate/oversee and will be using the study guide as a template for discussion.

        • Hey Noah, so sorry for not responding sooner!

          Your group study sounds great. Here are a few tips that have proved helpful over the years:

          1) Including parents is amazing. Make sure parents know that it will be very difficult for their kids to truly implement these new ideas if they are enforcing low expectations at home.

          2) At the same time, make sure that parents understand that they can sabotage the transformation if they pick up the phrase “do hard things” and use it like a stick to beat their kids over the head. Let the young people own the challenge for themselves and encourage the parents to facilitate, not take over.

          3) Encourage young people to make small but meaningful changes in response to what they read. Baby steps can take you a long way. Application really matters.

          4) Consider having the entire study culminate with some kind of project that the young people lead themselves. Make sure it is something they can really buy into themselves (if you let them come up with the idea, that will help).

          I hope this helps. Please let me know if you have any other questions or want me to elaborate on anything I’ve already shared.

          • Brett,
            I have an older version of Do Hard THings, it doesn’t appear to have a “built-in” study guide. I saw a pdf version online. are they the same?

  • Just placed an order for one case of “Do Hard Things” for my wife and her middle school girls small group she is leading at our church. When should we expect delivery under the promoted “free priority shipping” advertised on the website? They are excited about reading this together and my wife has used before with a different group and it went well too. Thanks for your ministry.

  • I just placed an order for a Christian school last Thursday but need the books by this coming Wed. (June 3) before school is out. I am willing to pay next day or second day but cannot find a phone number or way to contact your shipping team. Can someone help?

    • Hey Scott! If you or anyone else needs expedited shipping you should either 1) include a note with your order on PayPal specifying your deadline and willingness to pay for expedite shipping, or 2) shoot me an email as soon as you place your order to [email protected] with the same information.

    • Hello Giang! Yes, Do Hard Things has been translated into a dozen languages: Bahasa (Indonesian), Romanian, Spanish, Slovak, Chinese (Simplified Characters), Chinese (Complex Characters), Dutch, French, Czech, Korean, and German. And there is an English reprint in the Philippines.
