Best way to Collect Business Cards for Book Raffle During Speech

Hi all,I was hoping for some advice on this. I'm speaking in Las Vegas this weekend. I'm in a Ballroom (OMG!), I have no idea how many people will come to my talk. There are 15 other speakers at the same time I'm speaking, but over 13,000 attendees. There could be a lot at my speech.Here's my question—I want to build my list and collect business cards, so I am raffling off a book. During the 1st 10 minutes of my speech I tell them about the raffle and I was going to ask them to put their cards…See More

Profile Information

How did you hear about 48Days.NET, and what do you hope to get out of being a part of this community?
LinkedIn Motivational Speaking Group. Network with others. Learn tips and processes to attain speaking engagements in corporations, businesses, schools, etc. My focus is on fitness. My target market is women 35-55
What is your current work situation? Employee, self-employed, generating any income on your own?
Unemployed Art Director. Currently freelancing to generate income.
And then...what is your goal/dream for your work life?
I am a Certified Personal Trainer and Kettlebell Trainer. I have started a website: mamaknowsfitness.com and am writing a motivational book about getting and keeping fitness into your life. The tool is Kettlebells, a 30 minute workout that you can do in your own home. I would like to speak to people and motivate them to become/stay fit and healthy.
How about your personal life? Any specific goals or achievements or dreams you are pursuing (or want to pursue)?
The above is my goal/dream. I am 56 years old, have been in Design/Advertising for 33 years. I am now experiencing ageism and although my experience and credentials are vast, my age is a deterrent. In the fitness world, though, my age is a plus.
What would you say are your strongest talents? How are you 'wired' and what can you offer to the world (it's OK if you don't know yet, but knowing is key to pursuing your dreams!)?
Outgoing, perseverance, humor, tenacity, creativity, stamina, integrity, compassion, empathy
Do you have a website presence anywhere?
http://mamaknowsfitness.com
More than one website?
http://sheribarnesdesign.com
If you have a product or service to promote (now or in the near future) this is your shot to state it! Say all you'd like:
I would like to do motivational speaking to groups, companies, businesses, schools, etc. about the importance of staying fit and healthy. I am an advocate of Kettlebells because they are a fast and effective way to stay fit. My message is 2-fold: After being in the Design & Advertising business for 33 years I have now been put out to pasteur and am unable to find work. I am not alone. BUT, my body is in tip-top shape, probably better than it has ever been. We all are going to grow old and have to deal with the stresses of life, unemployment, family matters, etc. You need to be healthy and fit going into your elder adult years and it is never to early or too late to start. Our population has too many health issues that are the result of the foods we eat and lack of exercise. The population needs to understand that keeping fit is not a trend or a luxury, but a necessity. I am writing a book: Mama Knows Fitness: Bells, Balance & Your Body, which I hope to have published by early Fall. I also have a great informational website with Fit Tips, Nutritional info & recipes and a Blog. Check it out at: mamaknowsfitness.com

Sheri, welcome to the Wealth Building group.  What a great time to invest in real estate.  These are unprecedented times as far as real estate investing goes and hopefully you will find an avenue to create an income stream for yourself.  Take a few minutes and check out the discussions.  Feel free to start a discussion or to add your comments and insights.  I look froward to your participation and if I be of service to you please let me know.

Hi Sheri,

Thank you for joining us in Powerful Living. We're glad you're here.

There are a ton of things to do here - participate in a discussion that trips your trigger, or start one of your own. 

I started a discussion this morning that relates to Jared Miller and his walk. Sharing your thoughts there might be a great place to start.

Hi Again Sheri,

Thanks so much for joining the Speak It Forward group. Be sure to jump in on all the great discussions taking place.

Also, with "outgoing, perseverance, humor, tenacity, creativity, stamina, integrity, compassion, and empathy" as core competencies,
I'm pretty sure you're going to knock it out of the park as a speaker :)

Live It Forward,
Kent Julian

PS Also, in case you're interested, I offer a free e-resource entitled Goal-Setting That Actually Works! to those who join the Make The Move email community (also free). I think you'll get a ton out of both resources.
