Recently I decided to make some changes with how I am blogging on my website. I went into details about these changes in my March newsletter which would include moving my blogging timeline and incorporating a 3rd blog each month.
I am doing this for 2 reasons.
1. To continually find, create, provided ADDED VALUE items for my clients, prospects & friends.
2. To grow my business, blog and website by working on myself and business through personal and business development.
Adding Contest and Guest Bloggers are my Added Value items. Making these changes came via working on my business so that my business and myself will grow.
Today is that 3rd blog for this month and Custom Growth Group is hosting it’s very first giveaway.
Having a giveaway, seem to be the perfect way to add that Added Value item for my clients, yet help me grow what ever aspect of my business I felt I wanted to work on. This month I particularly wanted to get my Facebook over 250 likes and grow my newsletter sign ups.
Planning, hosting and implementing the giveaway needed to be simple. A process that would be easy to implement, but did the job I needed it to do. Both for me and for my readers interested in the giveaway.
I considered trying to run it myself, but ultimately opted for a plug in. Over the next several months I will be trying out several of these plugins to see which ones works the best. More on that later. This month the entry form is handled through Rafflecopter.
WHAT IS THE PRIZE?
Recently I finished up a 6 part series based on the book The Go-Giver: A Little Story About a Powerful Business Idea [ref]Amazon Affiliate link[/ref] by Bob Burg & David Mann. As a avid reader of books, I know Personal and Business Development is important in growth. I am a firm believer you must work on your business as much as you work in your business. The Go-Giver is a great example of this, which I talk about in my Review of the book.
To grow your business
work on your business
as much as you
work in your business!
Here is your chance to own ‘The Go-Giver’ by Bob Burg & David Mann.

Back to why I choose this book. This book was a great story of personal and business development. I chose this book because, working on your business is such an overlooked, yet critical aspect of business growth. Growth that can be easily accomplished through reading, classes, seminars, etc. Otherwise you and your business become stagnant and will begin to struggle.
