ship.jpgWell… If you read my “Give and You Shall Receive” post from yesterday, you found out that James Brausch was offering to pay the way for one of his blog readers to join him on a 3 day cruise to Mexico.

The only action required was to simply post to your blog and tell him why you should be the one he picks.

(Guess I should have titled the post “Blog and You Shall Receive!”)

Amazingly enough for the first few hours, I was the ONLY person (out of his 2,500+ readers each day) to even bother to post about the “contest”.

It actually took James posting a second time to get a few more entries. (And a couple of those were kinda’ scary if you ask me…)

So imagine my surprise when I got off the plane here in Minneapolis (I’m out of town conducting a workshop for a new client) and checked my voice mail to hear a message from James telling me I had won and asking for my PayPal email address to send over the money! (Well… Okay, after reading the other “replies” I pretty much expected it. But it was still cool!)

And to top it off… I was expecting him to send the $279 that the cruise ticket cost. But no! The class act that James is, he not only covered the cost of the cruise ticket, he sent a full $1,000 to cover the ticket, airfare from Kansas City to LAX and then some!

Actually, the cruise ticket with airfare comes to about $890… So by sending me $1,000, it leaves me just enough to pay tithing on the ‘grand’ and still go on the trip for free. Amazing how that works out. 😉

It just goes to show… If you TAKE ACTION, great things happen.


P.S. – To James, Kristi and all the others who will be joining us on the “boat”… My wife (Christina) and I are looking forward to meeting you. See you in Ensenada!
