Please Support Me in the AVON 39 – The Walk to End Breast Cancer

I’m signed up to participate in the Avon 39 – The Walk to End Breast Cancer, which is a 39.3 mile fundraising walk through New York City in October 2015.

Shawn Collins, Tricia Meyer, and Vanessa Branco at AVON 39 in 2014

This will be my third walk – I completed the AVON 39 in NYC last October, as well as in October 2012, and I can’t wait to return to take on this inspiring challenge.

We’ll be walking up and down and all around Manhattan over the two days – we’ll pass through the Upper West and East Sides, Greenwich Village, SoHo, and Chinatown, as well as crossing into Brooklyn over the Brooklyn Bridge and then back across the Manhattan Bridge.


The money I raise will be managed and disbursed by the Avon Foundation Breast Cancer Crusade to help provide access to care for those who most need it, fund educational programs, and accelerate research into new treatments and potential cures.

I’ll be just one of thousands of people who will walk up 39.3 miles over two days, and I can’t do it without your help.

I plan to raise $20,000 (or more)! I hope that I can count on your support – I would be grateful for anything you could spare.

If you’re interested in doing the walk, please contact me with any questions.

Enter to Win the Robert Cialdini Scarcity Sweepstakes

Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion by Dr. Robert Cialdini is one of my favorite business books, so I am giving away some copies.

The book is the #1 best seller on Amazon in Marketing & Consumer Behavior.

I first read Influence about 15 years ago, and we booked Dr. Cialdini to keynote Affiliate Summit West 2010. I would recommend any marketer or business person in general read this book.

Influence details six universal principles of social influence:

  • Reciprocation
  • Scarcity
  • Authority
  • Consistency
  • Consensus
  • Friendship/Liking

There are only five copies of the book available in the Robert Cialdini Scarcity Sweepstakes, so enter now for your chance to win Influence.
