Guys, it's time to prepare for the next financial crisis properly by reading
The Age of Anomaly
(my new book) and while you're at it, why not win some awesome prizes?
First and foremost, I'm practically giving The Age of Anomaly away by only charging
(not a typo) as of the 6th of August (Monday) and until the 12th of August (Sunday). Yep, people will basically be able to buy
a 400-page book
I've invested blood, sweat, tears and sanity in for less than a buck! :)
The book basically
helps people prepare for as well as deal with financial calamities
and represents a must-read for everyone who's concerned about the future. I've taken things one step at a time, from case studies which help you understand the financial disasters of yesterday to tips for today and, of course, information meant to help you become more resilient in general.
A no-bs approach to economic preparedness
, that's how I'd describe my new baby in just one sentence!
The book is being sold on 4 platforms:
Moving on to the contest, I have one goal and one goal only:
spreading the word about The Age of Anomaly
. Therefore, I will reward people who help me do that with chances at winning some truly awesome prizes (before continuing, it's important to mention that I respect people's privacy and encourage everyone to read my
The first prize is, believe it or not,
from our friends at
The second prize, once again from
1 ETH + 1 LTC
Next, the same awesome people from
first generation hardware wallets and
of their new Model T hardware wallets!
Aside from that, I'll be offering
TEN prizes of $100 each
(paid via Bitcoin or PayPal) myself!
Our other friends, this time from
, will be offering
15 domain + hosting packages
or in other words, a free Dot Com domain as well as free hosting for unlimited domains!
The same amazing people from
will be sponsoring the contest with
50 hosting packages
, once again for unlimited domains!
The great folks over at
will be offering a
$100 Amazon gift card
to a lucky winner!
Finally, I'll be offering
video or audio consulting sessions (via Skype, Google Hangouts or platforms like Zoom) as well as
email consulting sessions (you ask me a question, I'll provide a very detailed answer and do my best to help)!
How to take part in the contest, you might ask? Well, there are 3 possibilities and in each case, I'll reward you with chances at winning (once chance at winning = your email address written on a piece of paper and included in the final drawing):
1) Of course, buy the book. I'll reward people with 3 chances at winning for
, 3 chances at winning for buying on
, 3 chances for buying on
and 3 chances for buying on
Convince someone to buy the book
, you'll receive 3 chances at winning and, of course, the person who buys it receives 3 chances him or herself. For example, if John tells Rachel about the book and Rachel says "I found out about it from email@example.com" when contacting me to claim her 3 chances, John will receive 3 chances as well for telling her about the book. The only rule is that BOTH people need to have bought the book because otherwise, there's a significant incentive to game the system by creating fake email accounts and claiming those 3 chances
3) Other than that, all the other options of receiving additional chances involve telling others about the book, either through your personal social media accounts on platforms like
Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn
or through your platform if you have a
YouTube account, podcast, website or blog:
A) If you tell others about the book on
, you will receive 1 chance at winning if you have less than 100 friends (the BRONZE level), 2 chances if you have 100-500 friends (the SILVER level), 3 chances if you have between 500 and 1,000 friends (the GOLD level), 4 chances if you have between 1,000 and 5,000 friends (PLATINUM level) and, finally, 5 chances if you have over 5,000 friends/followers (the DIAMOND level). The same way, on
, you can receive anything from 1 chance at winning if you have less than 100 followers to 5 chances if you have over 5,000 and that's how things will work on
as well, from 1 chance if you have less than 100 contacts to 5 chances if you have over 5,000. If you're active on other social media platforms aside from these three, let me know and in each case, you'll receive 1 chance at winning
B) If you tell others about The Age of Anomaly on
, through your podcast or via your website/blog, you'll receive two times more chances at winning! When promoting on YouTube, you'll receive 2 chances if you have less than 100 subscribers (BRONZE), 4 chances if you have 100-500 subscribers (SILVER), 6 chances if you have 500-1,000 subscribers (GOLD), 8 chances if you have 1,000-5,000 subscribers (PLATINUM) or 10 if you have over 5,000 subscribers. The same way, by telling others about the book on your
, you'll receive between 2 chances at winning if you reach less than 100 people and 10 chances if you reach over 5,000 individuals. Finally, by spreading the word through your
website or blog
, you'll receive anything from 1 chance at winning if you have less than 100 monthly unique visitors to 10 chances if you have more than 5,000 (unique visits, not views!)
That being stated, let's see what you have to do to participate:
1) Send an email to
and if you'd like to, you can also send a carbon copy (cc) to
(optional). The two email addresses are on completely different servers, so the likelihood of me receiving the email is practically 100% if you send to both. But even if you only send to firstname.lastname@example.org, I'm 99.9% certain I'll receive it, I promise that my spam filters are very loose :)
2) In the
, do your best to be descriptive, it will help a lot when I go through all submissions. If you aren't, don't worry, I won't disqualify you. But still, please try to help by for example having a title such as "Bought on iBooks" if you purchased the book on iBooks or "Promoted on Facebook, SILVER level" if you promoted on Facebook and have between 100 and 500 friends
3) As far as
the actual message
is concerned, please explain what you did and prove that you did it. A screenshot if you bought the book, a link if you promoted on social media or a screenshot if your social media profile is private, use your best judgement
I don't want to finish without making 3 very important rules clear so as to ensure people don't game the system:
Rule 1) Your account needs to be ESTABLISHED and LEGITIMATE. It has to be at the very least 3 months old and if there's anything fishy about it, I reserve the right to disqualify you
Rule 2) You give me the right to make
. For example, if you have 9,000 followers on Twitter but there isn't much engagement, I might decide not to give you DIAMOND-level benefits and instead, only give you let's say BRONZE or SILVER-level ones
Rule 3) Not really a rule, just wanted to let you know that I'll do my best to pick the winners as soon as possible next week but since there will probably be a lot of listings to go through, so I can't make any promises, especially since I'll most likely be quite tired after the launch week
That's pretty much it, good luck and most importantly, I genuinely hope you'll put the tips I provide in The Age of Anomaly to good use because make no mistake, the stakes are ridiculously high!
