A while back I posted in the Advice and Feedback section about making money quickly. My bodybuilding contest I've been preparing for months to compete in was canceled
I was going to be last weekend in Portland, Oregon, just up the road from where I live.
The next closest one this time of year (the end of bodybuilding season) is in Sacramento California on October 29th.
That means around 16-20 hours round-trip driving, 1 or 2 nights in a hotel, and food along the way as well as my entry fee.
When I found out my show was canceled, Topher and Megan were home and Kourtney was over hanging out. I read the e-mail and just fell back on my bed and covered my head. I was soooo excited to compete and have Topher in the audience, as well as family and friends. I was sad and they all left me alone for a while.
Then I spoke and said, "well, I guess I can eat now" (referring to the fact I would no longer be on a strict pre-contest bodybuilding diet). Then Topher and Megan said, "no you can't......we're going to California."
I thought about it for a second and said, "yeah, we're going to California." So we planned a roadtrip, but we're all very short on funds.
The best way I can think of to make money quickly is to sell t-shirts from my website, since I have hundreds of dollars worth of shirts hanging in my closet.
Many of you have purchased them recently, even some who already have a shirt and just wanted to chip in so I can still compete.
I understand not everyone has extra money. I don't either so if someone asked me right now to purchase an item or contribute to their cause, I wouldn't be able to. But for those interested in getting a shirt, and have $19.95, this is a GREAT time to get one
I'll be emptying out my paypal account on Monday so it will get to my bank by Friday when Megan, Topher, and my friend Dave all head South to the Capital City of California.
I do have a variety of shirts that are not on the products page, but are in images in the photo gallery so feel free to e-mail me and see what I've got.
Also, since all the e-mails for shirt orders come to ME, you can change your order anytime, and all shirts are the same price so I'll just reply to the order and confirm styles and sizes.
Anyone could also feel free to send a check rather than messing with paypal.

Thanks again for the support. I really look forward to competing in front of the friends I'll have with me and thanks for all the help on my journey to get there.
