Last year, I hosted a bunch of giveaways as an experiment: I was trying to find out if they worked to get more attention for IWT and to change IWT readers’ behavior.
As usual, some of it worked, some of it didn’t.
Can you guess which one was the most/least popular contest of last year?
- $1,001 cash for you, no strings attached
- $1,001 cash for you and your partner
- Two roundtrip tickets anywhere in the US
- One month’s payment of your rent or mortgage
- Two nights in a luxury hotel anywhere in the world
- Several iPhone 5s
- Most popular: = Two roundtrip tickets anywhere
- Least popular: Two nights in a luxury hotel anywhere in the world
Honestly, I have no idea why this is. I’ve always said that money is only a small part of living a rich life, so it makes sense that the flights (freedom, flexibility) were popular. But why the hell didn’t you guys want luxury hotels? Do we have a bunch of ballers who already stay at the St. Regis wherever you travel?
If it were me, that would have been my #1 choice!! But then again, I am a little weird about luxury hotels.
Friend posted pics of amazing temples and palaces in faraway land. I skipped ahead to look at pics of his luxury hotel. What is wrong w/me

All in all, I liked doing these contests. They got us all thinking about what a Rich Life means, they led to record comments/growth, and they let me give back to the IWT community.
Since 2013 is the year of Taking Control, I’m going to be doing more of these. In fact, to give people a taste of living a Rich Life — like so many successful IWT students now have — I’m making this a regular feature of IWT.
Every month, I’m holding a simple contest with a chance to win something cool. Hopefully I won’t have any duds like the hotel example above.
To start it off, I’m giving away another two roundtrip tickets to anywhere in the US.
There’s no expiration date. Use them this month, at the holidays, for your honeymoon, whenever.
