Recently, I was approached by a rep from MDA to participate in their Lock-Up fundraiser. I’ve been approached before and have been interested, but never had time to actually do it.

This time I said, “what the heck” and decided to go for it. My lock up date is September 26th.

But, I decided to make things interesting….

Why not add in a raffle and donate the raffle earnings to my “bail”?

So, that’s what I’m going to do. At the Elsa’s meetup on the 21st and the Heather’s meetup in September, I will be raffling off two free passes to my Mr. Leads Power Networking Workshop (separate drawings). I’ve also reached out to other business people who will also be adding items to the raffle as well.

I have two different ways you can buy a raffle ticket. One way is by making an online donation on my fundraising page which you can access by clicking here.

Additionally, I’ll be accepting cash raffle entries at the meetup.

Raffle tickets are just $5 each. Pretty good deal, wouldn’t you say? $5 to potentially win a $150 ticket that will help you substantially grow your business and help out MDA in the process. What a deal!

For the online entries, please make your donation public by checking the “make public” box when you check out online, so I’ll know how many raffle tickets to issue you at the meetup.

If you are a winner of the raffle, you can attend the workshop the next day, August 22nd from 2-5 pm at Indiana Wesleyan. Or if you want to wait, I also recently added workshops on September 25th and October 24th. Both are also 2-5 p.m. at Indiana Wesleyan. The ticket sale website, event description and testimonials are at

You will need to be present to win, so I look forward to seeing you at the meetup and good luck to you!
