Still working on the poker book. Who thought writing could be so hard?

Anyway, I have so much going on now. Hawkette just opened a new company, I'm writing a poker book, I have another software company I'm trying to open, and I have my regular job. Oh yeah, and I'm the treasurer of my local youth football organization, and the coach of my son's football team. Whew! Who knew life was going to be this fun?

By the way GO BRONCOS!

I have another poker tournament coming up March 1st, 2014. I'll be supplying the chips and cards but a couple of my employees will be running the tournament itself. I will be doing everything I can to help the tournament be successful including getting players. We will be fundraising for a select baseball team. Let me know if you are interested in playing....

I'm still working on my book about fundraising. I hope to have it done soon. I think I can have the writing done in the next couple of weeks, maybe a month or so with the rewrites. I will then work on the formatting and images of the book, then to get the book out to publication. Nervous but excited all at the same time.

Till next time, stay patient...

Happy Holidays Everyone!

Fundraising through poker tournaments is really starting to catch on. I mean, you can do small tournaments (20-40 people) and raise a couple of thousand dollars or you can do large tournaments (100-300 people) and really raise some serious cash.

The key is getting people to show up. I have run fundraiser tournaments for charities and for sports teams. And in both situations, the key is getting people to show up the day of the tournament. Most people do not want to commit until that day -"the weather may be nice", "something better may come up", or "we will be there, but we will just pay at the door". All these excuses can be hard to overcome.

But if you really work at it and you do it smart, you will be able to get 50-100 people there and be worry free about weather or not you will have a successful fundraiser. I'll be writing more soon. Hope all is well.

Happy Holidays Everyone!

How amazing is AMAZON? I finished one quarter of my Christmas shopping during Futsol practice this morning. My daughter was practicing while I was shopping. A perfect combination. If you haven't tried it, I highly recommend it. You can even get items gift wrapped before they are shipped if you want to.
