Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaway – Practical Philanthropy,” by Laura Orsini (yours truly)

Hello, book lovers!

OH. MY. GOODNESS! We made it all the way to the end. Today is Day 12 of the 12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaway Contest. I’m so happy that you’ve been reading  along and entering each day of the contest  and I’m especially proud to offering what I think is an important and useful book that can help you take a step that both builds your business and changes the world, if even in a small way.

This book originated as a presentation I did as part of a the “Your Vibrant Business” webinar I co-created with Karen Gridley. Our goal was to cover all aspects that went into creating and maintaining a flourishing business life — whether folks ran their own small businesses or had more traditional careers. What I discovered in putting my presentation together was that I loe this topic! Not only that, but I also think it’s a very relevant concept for so many people in business who are looking for ways to make a difference but need some help to get started.

Ready to learn  more about Practical Philanthropy: How ‘Giving Back’ Helps You, Your Business, and the World Around You?

Cover - practical philanthropyAlthough volunteering has a significant impact on the success and efficacy of our charitable organizations, only a fraction of those capable actually volunteer. If you run a business — or have a family — you may think you’re just too busy, too tired, too overwhelmed to give back. Perhaps you think “giving back” is for do-gooders and completely unrelated to business. But there are many different ways to give back that you may not have considered — activities that can give you a greater sense of purpose, generate great exposure for your business, and help others in a massively impactful way. Sell the book as a fundraiser with YOUR logo on it!

To enter this contest, USE THIS LINK to head over to Rafflecopter, read the 6 different ways you can enter to win this book, and enter as many ways as you like! You may enter once per method per email address, unless otherwise specified.

This contest runs from 12 a.m. PST on 12/24/14 to 12 a.m. PST on 12/25/14. The winner will be posted on the official contest page as soon as his or her name is drawn.

We’ll also have BONUS Christmas Day drawing for the book of your choice from the 12 participating authors!

Have fun  and may the best readers win!

Laura

Hello, book lovers!

BrodickToday is Day 2 of the 12 Days of Christmas Book Giveaway Contest. Book #2 from some of the accomplished authors from the Phoenix Publishing & Book Promotion Meetup is The Brodick Affair, by Les Brierfield.

Can an aging soldier of fortune outwit his enemies and disappear into comfortable seclusion? Gunrunner Harry Brodick has left a trail of enemies from the Congo and Far East to Europe. He and his Vietnamese wife, Nan, seek an exit from their danger-filled existence and a way to safeguard their child. Their ticket out is one last weapons shipment to underworld kingpin Santos Aguilar. Fashionable ski resort Thunder Ridge is a perfect spot for Harry, Nan, and Santos to plan the deal off the radar, until Santos learns that Harry has drawn attention from international authorities. Santos places a contract on Harry’s life. The Brodick Affair is an international adventure with conspiracies, deception, lust, and murder. Volume I of the Thunder Ridge Trilogy.
