Have you always wanted to start a business? Ever have the nagging feeling that your hobby could be something more? Do you often wish you could quit your job and do your own thing? Have you always wondered if anything could come of that business idea that never seems to go away?
If you answered “YES!” to any of those questions, I invite you to enter the Your Dream Starts Now contest.
The truth is that now is probably the best time in the history of the world to start your own thing. If you’re ready, this prize package has the potential to tip you over the edge from dreaming to doing.
Here’s What You Win:
The $100 Startup by Chris Guillebeau
As an entrepreneur myself, I’ve read a TON of business books. But none like this. This one chronicles fifty case studies of people who’ve started a wide variety of successful businesses with very little capital. (Many began with under $100 in funding.) The stories deliver gobs of inspiration, but this book also gives you steps to take, and charts to follow, and solid real-world advice for making your little dream a big reality.
The Icarus Deception by Seth Godin
Seth Godin is one of my biggest heroes and this book may be his best. In it he makes a passionate argument for why you should be treating your work as art. But as he reminds us, “Art is not a gene or a specific talent. It’s an attitude, available to anyone who has a vision that others don’t, and the guts to do something about it. Steve Jobs was an artist. So were Henry Ford and Martin Luther King Jr.” Seth will convince you that it’s better to be sorry than safe and you’ll be inspired to fly higher than ever.
It’s Time To Dream Bigger print by Jason Kotecki
This is a not-yet-released 8×10 print of one of my favorite works so far. I’m hoping it will earn a special spot on your wall to encourage you to dream bigger than ever and serve as a reminder that 2013 will be your best year yet.
A Little Something Extra
This might be the coolest part of the prize, but we can’t tell you what it is, because it’s a secret.
Here’s How To Enter:
All you have to do to enter is leave a comment below sharing your dream. You don’t have to leave a business plan or anything, but explain what kind of enterprise you’d like to launch. Why does it excite you? And why is 2013 the year you’re going to make it come true?
Deadline For Entries:
The deadline for entries is Thursday, January 24, 2013. We will be selecting TWO winners, so your chances of winning just doubled!
We selected two random grand prize winners. They are: Debbie and Tiffani! Also, since we had a few extra copies of The Icarus Deception, we randomly selected three additional people to receive a copy of that book as well as the print by Jason. (Mel, Nicole, and Donna) Congrats to you guys, and thanks to everyone who shared their dream with us. Best wishes and mucho success!
