I want to send a quick congrats to the winners of my Platinum Excellence Awards and my Bankroll Your Business Competition. I know many of you have been following these contestants on my Facebook page, so let’s give them a big shout out!

2010 Platinum Excellence Award Winners

For the Platinum Excellence Awards, our first place winner is Angelique Rewers of Richer, Smarter, Happier — for all of her hard work this year, Angelique won a free half-day of private one-on-one coaching with James Roche and myself. In a close 2nd place is Doreen Rainey of Radical Success Coach. Doreen won a ONE hour strategy session with James. Angelique and Doreen were chosen because they won the highest percentage of votes from our SHINE attendees and James and I found their performance over the past year to be outstanding.

It was a very tight competition, and every single one of our finalists deserve to be recognized for their achievements this year. Here is the full list of our 6 Platinum Excellence Award Finalists.

My Bankroll Your Business Competition

This is a BRAND new competition where I asked you guys to pitch me your business ideas for the chance to win $5,000 of start-up capital. I hand-selected these winners because of the confidence and passion I felt while watching their video pitch and just getting a sense of what felt right.

My Bankroll Your Business Competition Winners

Our 1st place winner is Renee Preis, taking home $5,000 to start her business. And in 2nd place, Julie Matthews took home a free copy of my Online Success Blueprint 2.0 — my fully upgraded version. Congratulations Renee and Julie!

Each contestant had to fill out a hand-written application and record a video pitch, telling me why they thought their business should win the $5,000 in start-up capital. Watch the videos here and get pumped to enter the contest next year!

Love and success,
