Two contests

Just a quick reminder–we have a book contest going on where you can win a $25 Amazon gift certificate.

All you have to do is read my book and post a review on Amazon.  Then email me that you did so.  The winner will be drawn from all reviews posted by this Friday, April 9th at midnight.  There are 3 4 reviews up so far!

And the other contest–I am trying to win the privilege of having my “Amish vs. Toyota manifesto” published on the Change This site.

If it wins, I’m going to write about how taking a humble approach in business helps the Amish.

If you haven’t voted yet and want to, you can do that here (contest now over, thanks for helping out!).   As I write this I am winning with 112 votes (my nearest competitor has 96) but who knows what can happen in the last minute (sports fans see Duke-Butler basketball yesterday).  The Change This contest ends tomorrow, April 7th.  A big thanks!

    Something interesting I found out recently: I have become good friends with a young Amish woman from Ohio. I was telling her about finding this blog and about the book you wrote. She mentioned that her dad had just gotten a book that sounded similar. I described the cover for her (neither of us could remember your last name!) and we found out that we were talking about the same book. Then she told me that you had interviewed her father during your research for the book. Her family owns the Pioneer horse drawn equipment company.
    …Sometimes it seems like such a small world!

    I really love your book Erik. Your website is great! I am envious. I wish I could be in Lancaster PA! I was there last year. Wish I was there again!

    I have no chance of winning the competition…….I won’t get a copy of the book until May 🙁

  5. Thanks for all the attention everybody. And Helen you are a trooper, I really don’t know why it is later with Amazon UK–I have heard from friends in Poland who are already getting it! Thanks for your Amish patience over there!!

  6. The Amish get so mad when you try to dunk them by hitting the orange trangle on the buggie in hopes of dunking them into a tank!
