1.4 of Your Friends = 10,000 Facebook Likes

Back in February, we started the 10,000 Facebook Likes Challenge and it's been a big success. At the beginning of the challenge, we had less than 1,300 LIKES. As of today (4/30/2014), we are at 4,244! That's a 300% gain in just three months!!! I really appreciate EVERY SINGLE PERSON who has LIKED this page so far.

We really want to get to 10,000 by the end of this year. Going from 4,200 to 10,000 seems like a huge task, but it's really not if you have the right help. That's why I'm reaching out to my Facebook followers. Simply put, if everyone who LIKES my Facebook page were to get just 1.4 of their friends to LIKE it as well, we would reach 10,000 by the end of today. I don't think it will happen today, but it really is that simple.

1) Visit our Facebook Page.
