Thanks Dea for starting this discussion!
Last Friday night I won a lottery slot into the Ironman 70.3 World Championships, being held in Henderson, Nevada on September 9, 2012!!!!!
Blogged about it on my training blog:
While on the surface this doesn’t appear to have anything to do with small business, things are not always as they appear.
When I left the full time practice of law in 2005 I felt lost, directionless, like a complete loser. Hearing @mike-stelzner present about white papers in Copywriting Success Summit 2008 made me feel like I could actually have a viable and successful writing business.
One month after hearing Mike’s presentation I finished Silverman, one of the toughest half iron distance races out there (1.2 mile swim, 56 mile bike, 13.1 mile run).
The connection is that through sport I developed the confidence to be in business.
So when Ironman decreed that the 70.3 World Championships were going to be held here, in my backyard, on the Silverman course, and 25 lottery slots were made available to locals, I had to go for it.
I’m extremely proud to now shout from the rooftops that I’m training for a World Championship — under circumstances designed to make an average athlete’s dreams come true.
And my business is growing every day.
