Speaking of a challenge! Drop Zone team wanted - please help

Anyone who raises a minimum pledge of $1500 for the Alberta Easter Seals Drops Zone before Sept. 10th (actually before my training on Sept. 5th) will earn the chance to rappel down the side of the 26-story Sutton Place Hotel (10235 101 St in Edmonton). Since 2005, more than 600 superheros joined this exclusive Superhero Club for Easter Seals.

I am committed to being a part of that courageous group this year in helping Easter Seal Kids. (gulp)

I am asking for your involvement in making that goal a reality. I could donate the $1500 for the chance to walk down the building, but that would defeat the process of engaging and involving a greater number of people in the process. People like you... I believe in the power of making a 'leveraged' difference.

This program is being used by Easter Seals all across Canada. Last year (Edmonton's first) 39 people rappeled down and this year they have a goal of doubling that number. They have room for 70 Superheros. I would love to be one of them this year and with your help, surpass that challenging goal.

I've pledged to raise at least $2500. I am asking your help to surpass this challenging goal.
Check out this flash movie to see what I have to look forward to (gulp!) and follow the link below to go to my personal donation page.

As many of you know I am not very comfortable with heights; but I believe to get to the winner's zone we need to move outside my comfort zone. This adventure will certainly move me 'way' past my comfort zone. (SMILE!!!) With your help I will on Sept. 10th, 2007. We'll see if we can get some pictures to share of this adventure.

Check out my personal donation page and support this great cause. (You can make a donation online)

Boy have I... smile

Getting back into blogging... been a very productively busy year so far... and a lot of our success revolves around speaking. Visit our website and view some of our past issues of Ideas @ Work for more information.

Have been across the country (US and Canada) on numerous occasions sharing our Ideas At Work! with leaders, sales professionals, association executives, fellow speakers, Toastmasters and community groups.

Went to Chicago in May to share a new concept we developed and launched in March. Our Secret Selling Tips has been very well received and we now have clients across North America who subscribe for their entire sales teams.

Returned recently from a two week road trip... San Diego, Chicago and Waukesha, WI, back to San Diego, Seattle, Bellingham, Kelowna, Golden, Radium and Canmore. Good to be home.

Speaking for Success
