My tip would be:

Enjoy the IDEA of winning. We can't ALL win it ALL, but it's fun to imagine how good it would feel to win something BIG or that you really want. Enjoy that feeling as it's a small "win" in and of itself. (And one day, when you DO win something amazing, it'll be even more sweet than if you just don't think you'd ever win anything!)

my tip is simply to put in the time. i see sweeping as a numbers game, so the more i enter the better my chances are. thanks!

Go green....and keep entering. It is all about the odds. More entries, and more contests to enter, means more wins.

Yes, the more you enter the better your chances of winning - but take breaks if you need to. You definitely won't win if you burn out and stop entering altogether.

My favorite win is the trip to North Carolina hubby and I will be taking in October. Just the thrill of getting the phone call was a win!

My tip is to enter the instants during the 3:00 - 4:00 a.m. hour. Less competition during those times.

Thanks for the chance!!

I hooked up the PS3 I won this weekend and went to gamestop and bought a couple of games. I love this PS3 and I wouldn't have won it if I hadn't entered. So that's my tip. If you want it, enter it at least once. That one time may be all you need to win.



When life gives you sweepstakes, ENTER ENTER ENTER

GLTA!

My tip is a very common but important one: you can't win if you don't enter!

Thank you so much for the contest Brent. Very generous.
Winning this would be my only change at going to one of these conventions as they alsways seem to be so far away from where I live!

My favorite win was my Special K/Shape Spring Forward Gift Bag win. It came with so many awesome food items and fun stuff! It was great, and I'll never forget it. I still use the bag that all the things came in!

Thanks for the awesome giveaway!

Time stands still.....

A tip that helps me get thru dry spells and avoid burnout is to keep a notebook with "wins" listed. When you go back and look at what you've won in the past, you can think 'wow ~ I AM lucky!' Thanks for offering the chance to win a trip to the national convention!!
