Leading by example - support Bob at the Drop Zone

Anyone who raises a minimum pledge of $1500 for the Alberta Easter Seals Drops Zone before Sept. 10th (actually before my training on Sept. 5th) will earn the chance to rappel down the side of the 26-story Sutton Place Hotel (10235 101 St in Edmonton). Since 2005, more than 600 superheros joined this exclusive Superhero Club for Easter Seals.

I am committed to being a part of that courageous group this year in helping Easter Seal Kids. (gulp)

I am asking for your involvement in making that goal a reality. I could donate the $1500 for the chance to walk down the building, but that would defeat the process of engaging and involving a greater number of people in the process. People like you... I believe in the power of making a 'leveraged' difference.

This program is being used by Easter Seals all across Canada. Last year (Edmonton's first) 39 people rappeled down and this year they have a goal of doubling that number. They have room for 70 Superheros. I would love to be one of them this year and with your help, surpass that challenging goal.

I've pledged to raise at least $2500. I am asking your help to surpass this challenging goal.
Check out this flash movie to see what I have to look forward to (gulp!) and follow the link below to go to my personal donation page.

As many of you know I am not very comfortable with heights; but I believe to get to the winner's zone we need to move outside my comfort zone. This adventure will certainly move me 'way' past my comfort zone. (SMILE!!!) With your help I will on Sept. 10th, 2007. We'll see if we can get some pictures to share of this adventure.

New Pocket Wisdom Motivational Companion for leaders in the works

Bob wanted to let you know that he is currently working on a new Pocket Wisdom Motivational Companion called Secret Leadership Tips. This pocket sized publication will be available for leaders and those they are grooming for leaders. Each page has a motivational or thought provoking quote and some reflective ideas. It will be available in the fall of 2007 and cost $4.95

Bob is creating this Pocket Wisdom publication to support a new web-based service called Secret Leadership Tips. SLS will parallel what he did earlier this year with Secret Selling Tips and will offer bi-weekly subscriptions for leaders and leaders in training.
