Prizes! I have a couple prizes! And some giveaways!
But let’s start with my first Thank You:
Thank You Lorraine!
Again, extreme thanks to Lorraine of Raincoaster Media. When she moved to Yellowknife from my home turf of Vancouver’s DTES, I knew the north had gained a treasure. What I didn’t know is what a treasure she’d be to me. She got me on as a regular contributor for a US-based blog that has, oh, about fourty times the traffic my own blog has. And then she got me onto The Bunker Project podcast, Show #53 which is one of Canada’s pre-eminent podcast shows with – gulp – listeners in excess of 100,000 did you say, Lorraine?
But more than that, she helped me take my concept from Nancy’s Kinda Goofy Idea into something real. As you can imagine, there were more than one Nancy-Freak-Out moments What do you mean Qik doesn’t archive?; No, no I really don’t think live-coaching is possible; CRAP I FORGOT TO BUY THE BOOZE!. Through it all, Lorraine was encouraging, creative, and my right-hand person.
More thanks forthcoming but now:
A PRIZE! for the Facebook Money Trivia Quiz!
The questions were:
1. Who are the bigger savers, Canadians or Americans (as of 2010)?
ANSWER: Americans! In a startling reversal of a long-held historic trend, Americans now save nearly double what Canadian’s save, per person. Canadians save less than 3% of their income; Americans save just over 6%
2. What is the fundamental difference between a credit union and a bank?
Credit unions are owned by their members; banks are owned by shareholders who may live anywhere and don’t necessarily use the bank.
3. How many modules are in my online money coaching program?
Go find out!
4. T/ F Jesus said “Money is the root of all evil”
False. It’s written in the book of Timothy, not at all attributed to Jesus, and it says The love of money [important distinction] is the root off all evil.
5. The touted ideal savings rate is 10%. How much do Canadians (or Americans) save as a percentage of their income?
See A to Q #2.
Congrats to April Smith who won the contest and won a gorgeous cushion with the word Abundance hand-sewn on – a cushion created exclusively for my online launch!
Thank you Bill, and Lee (and Devon and Nigel and …) of Kellett . They created Your Money by Design with care and enthusiasm above and beyond what I had any right to expect from a web developer. And Bill made it possible when it looked like it wasn’t. Gratitude to you!
Thank you to the people who participated – to Lowell-Ann (midlife/silver-collar career coach), Betty-Anne (coachee), Melanie (coachee) , Krsytal (tweet chat) and Marcy (tweet chat) . The day would have been monotone, and frankly impossible, without out. Thank you!
I’d like to give them to some Vancouver friends who showed me particular luv, promoting my online launch party via FB, G+, Twitter, Blogs. I am truly grateful. I have 5 pairs so if I figured out correctly, the most wide-ranging luv came from:
Winners, kindly “e” me at nancy [at] your money by design .com And I’ll forward your info to Anita to claim the pair of tickets.
Thank You to all who graciously promoted the event.
I felt so much support, and I can’t tell you what that means to me. You helped get the word out about my business, which is about helping folks with their money, so close to the bone. Karma to you! and to you, young and handsome who-knows-how-to-cook (any young women reading??) Kyle for the podcast in advance!
By conservative estimates, I’d say easily 10,000 people would have heard about the event through you all. What a start! THANK YOU.
