The Predictable Success Contest

Did I mention we’re going to have more contests and giveaways? I think I did!

It will come as no surprise, to those of you who read Spin Sucks daily, that I am a big fan of Les McKeown and that I love his book, Predictable Success. He has been kind enough to donate 10 books to us to giveaway to you! So we bring you…The Predictable Success Contest!

But, you’re going to have to do a bit of work. We’re looking for guest bloggers who don’t necessarily already have a blog, but have been curious about what it’s like to have a community. We’re looking for guest bloggers who have something to say about business growth and are willing to share their knowledge with the Spin Sucks readers AND with Les McKeown’s readers.

There is one catch, however, the entrants must be c-level executives. If that’s not you, that’s okay – pass the information along and help educate your executives on how powerful blogging can be by entering them in this contest.

Who can enter: Those who hold a c-level position.

How to enter: Submit a brief account (no more than 500 words) of an obstacle you’ve overcome in growing your company as it relates to the lifecycle of businesses described in “Predictable Success” (highlighted in this blog post or in the reviews on Amazon). Blog posts can be ghost written by someone on your staff, as long as it is your story and approved by you.

How the winners will be chosen: We will choose the 10 best blog posts, as they relate to the book, and those will be featured as guest posts on Spin Sucks. From that pool of 10, Les McKeown will choose one grand prize winner.

The prizes: All 10 winners receive a copy of “Predictable Success.” The grand prize winner also will be invited to participate in a one-on-one interview with Les McKeown that will be posted on his site, as well as on Spin Sucks (where you will reach an audience of 15,000).

When this contest will take place: We will begin accepting submissions today. Submissions will be accepted no later than midnight CT on July 21. Winners will be notified no later than July 28. Please email submissions, in a Word document, to Dan Hindin. If you are a winner, we will ask you for a two sentence bio and a photo to use on the blog.

P.S. Our newsletter, Smart Talk, has come out of hiding and we’re back to monthly distribution. If you’d like to check out past issues, click here. And if you like what you see, subscribe here!
