The competition site went down last week, which is why they are allowing it back open for just three days next week. At some point last week, I was tearing my hair out as I couldn’t get my pitch through and I wasn’t very happy I can tell you. I decided that enough was enough and I tweeted Richard Branson about it………….okay, he never came back to me, but the competition got re-opened for the unlucky hair pulled out grumpy hand shaking red faced strivers that had gone through this experience.
So, what do we have to do? Easy, we just need to get lots and lots, and lots, and even more lots of people to like our video. Easy right? Well…….it should be, shouldn’t it?
Because we are not allowed to get votes by any other way except getting our video out in front of people and saying please lots of times, with cherries on top, I suppose it will come down to popularity. Why does that remind me of the dreaded picking of teams at school, where someone (that would be me) would always be the last to be picked?
Well, they always say, it’s not what you know, it’s who you know that counts and I’m about to find out on Monday when the competition opens at 10am until Wednesday at 5pm. I need to collect as many “Likes” as possible. I have been informed it needs to be well over 1,000 likes. I don’t even know that many people?
Plus, I have to accept that maybe no-one (I cannot be Billy no mates surely?) will actually vote for me, or worse, I get negative feedback? Or both!
But, do you know what? I am going to give it a try because, well, you only live once don’t you and if you never step outside of your comfort zone, you just don’t live enough. I don’t want to be one of those people that always plays it safe. Hey, I had 90 seconds to try and explain to people about me and my business, enough for them to vote for me. That is not an easy task, especially when you have a camera rolling in your face and a crowd gathering to see what all the fuss is about or which famous person has landed in Stratford upon Avon, or has someone just died over there?
No, just little old me, pretending to be Barbara for a small second (all will become clear when you see the video.) Well, here goes – wish me luck, and if you’re in a good mood Monday morning, feel free to vote on my video link I will post up here on Monday. (Did you see what I did then?!)
Please Click here to vote for me and please also share on your Social Media and with as many friends as you can, thank you and fingers crossed - Competition is now closed
