The VP Contest – Final Tuesday

October 12, 2010

I make the analogy that today is similar to the 8th frame in bowling.  The 8th frame is surreptitiously important as it sets you up for a big final score  if you close out a strike or even a spare.  Many can argue that the 9th frame is the most important, however, I see it differently.  Blanking on the 8th frame results in a loss of momentum and the potential loss of 20 extra points if you happen to roll a turkey.

Therefore, today is the probably the single most important day of the contest in regard to closing things out.  Every single “iron in the fire” has to be addressed.  In addition, these deals that I have been working on must start closing out in order for them to be finalized by Friday.

I was able to get my second wind as I received approval from two of the sponsoring companies to engage in a particular marketing campaign (to be disclosed later) that will drive in hundreds if not thousands of orders.  I am very excited to work on finalizing the details as even if the campaigns don’t run during this week, I will have them locked in as a future value that will be counted.  I must say that working alongside with Nicole on these particular campaigns has been beneficial as we complement our own personal skill sets.

It’s starting to shape up to be a very interesting week and I am excited to to work these new opportunities through to the end.

    Finish strong! You’ve impressed everyone and should be a lock to win! They are crazy if they don’t choose you.
