By the time you read this you probably heard that there was a huge lottery going on. People are parting with their hard-earned dollars for a 1 in 175,000,000 whisper of hope.
Buy more tickets
You could spend even more money and further dilute the pool of contestants in an already over-sold lottery that offers you less of a chance of winning than being killed by a falling coconut.
You could enter a couple giveaways that will give you a 1 in 25 chance of winning something that could change your life and cause you to live beyond rich.
The odds are in your favor. Actually, your odds of winning TWICE are even better than your odds of winning a small state-run lottery.
How is that possible? I’m glad you asked
Below are links to a couple different places you can enter giveaways for Jen McDonough’s new book “Living Beyond Rich”, officially to be released on December 4, 2012.
In DQYDQ fashion, I walk you through the math:
2 in 30: Whitney Sparks is giving away 2 copies and all you have to do is answer a question in the comments of her page. The chances of her having more than 3o comments on her site are rather slim so we’ll call that a 1 in 15 chance of winning.
1 in 25: I only have 1 copy of the book to give away but you could earn more than 100 entries! If 50 people enter and only 25 of them continue earning more giveaway entries (see the giveaway for details) then you have increased your chances exponentially!
I’m no statistician but entering all the contests will increase your odds of winning ten-fold!
Want to feel like a Lotto winner?
OK, so it’s not the same as winning a boat-load of money but you can’t deny that winning feels good.
So what are you doing reading this post? You need to get over to those two contests and enter NOW!
