I had the pleasure of ‘meeting’ Ron Miller, owner of PowerSweepstaking, in 2006 when I began writing the American Edition of You Can’t Win If You Don’t Enter. For years we would trade emails and occasionally chat on the phone.
In 2011 Ron was featured in High Stakes Sweepers. I recommended him for the role as I loved his positivity. It wasn’t until 2013 when I went on my ‘Secrets of Winning’ tour did we finally meet in person.
I stayed with Ron and his family on my Dayton OH leg of my journey. We ended up in the local paper and on the local morning show. We had so much fun running my workshop that evening too.
If you were a PowerSweepstaker you noticed his emails dwindling and finally stopping. Recently, Ron pulled his entire site offline.
Last month I discovered why. Ron has lymphoma. His undergoing treatment. Test to test. Treatment to treatment. Hospital to hospital.
He is in a quite a lot of pain as he goes through the long process of killing the cancer and then healing. To quote Ron, “Right now it’s CNN or sleep.”
Ron is down, but not out. This isn’t the end of PowerSweepstaking. When Ron is healthy, he plans to relaunch a brand new site. No only will the design be brand new, it will be FREE! He has decided to move away from the subscription model.
Stay tuned for ‘Power’ updates on this blog and my social channels for good news about Ron and the grand relaunch.
In the meantime, if you are searching for a new sweepstakes resource, check out my Finding Sweepstakes page. I have links to dozens of blogs, aggregates and newsletters that post legitimate giveaways.
Sadly, there is no way to get in touch with Ron to send your thoughts, support and prayers as he isn’t well enough to check email or be online. Feel free to leave comments below and I will let him know the next time we chat.
