Every year for the last 10 years, my New Year’s resolutions look like this:

  1. Drink more water
  2. Floss more

Two simple things that don’t require much effort on my part, and are seemingly easy to succeed at – because who wants to fail right off the bat in a new year?  Making more significant resolutions and actually putting them in writing means there’s a possibility of failure.  Of course, it could also lead to tremendous success.   Which is why I’m adding a third resolution to my list.

3. Raise at least $1,000 a month for non-profits in the Northwest.

It’s a big goal for me, and one that I need some help in achieving.

Jen Mueller CEO, America's Expert TalkerHere’s the plan – buy a set of Talk Sporty to Me greeting cards for $20 and $10 of every set sold will go directly to the designated non-profit that month.

During January and February your purchase will help fund research at Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center.  You can read more here.

Why greeting cards?  Because they’re a great way to make a world of difference in the lives of people around you.  I write thank you notes to the athletes and coaches I work with throughout the year to that I care and to cultivate those business relationships.  You can do the same thing, and help fund life-saving research at in the process.

Join Talk Sporty in making a world of difference and a difference in the world.
