"Make A Promise Day" — May 4th

May The Fourth Be With You!

My New RTIR Ad About The Power of Making a Promise — New Tradition on Father’s Day and Other Special Days — Plus My Interview Today on “Straight Talk”

I’ll be a guest on “Straight Talk” (WCEM-AM 1240 in Cambridge, MD) at 10:30-11:00 AM (ET) June 7, 2011.  I plan to use the example of “Tony’s Promise” to underscore the power of those two magic words “I Promise.”

Watch the moving ‘I Promise’ video (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nzGhT5hweNM) and visit the ‘Tony’s Promise’ Facebook group (http://www.facebook.com/home.php?sk=group_205770589445576)for more information.

As I did with Mother’s Day, I’m urging young people in particular to make a promise on Father’s Day to their dads not to drink and drive and not to allow their friends to do so either.  Here’s the link to the radio station’s website: www.mtslive.com.

Here’s my new half-page ad running in the Early June Radio and Television Interview Report (RTIR).  This ad highlights the power of making a promise on special holidays and events — like Father’s Day, Independence Day, birthdays, anniversaries, etc.

From yesterday’s press release:

Author and guest speaker Matthew Cossolotto – creator of Make A Promise Day and former aide to Congressman Leon Panetta and House Speaker Jim Wright – says we should make a heartfelt promise to our fathers on Father’s Day.  Cossolotto recently published a motivational ebook titled, “A Promise A Day: 30 Days to a Promising Future,” now available for a nominal investment on http://www.ThePodiumPro.com.

“This Father’s Day,” Cossolotto suggests, “start a new tradition and give your Dad a gift he’ll cherish forever.  Promise him you’ll do something you know will make him proud of you.  Doing so will make for a very special and memorable Father’s Day for both father and child.  For instance, I urge young people to follow the example of Tony’s Promise (see below) and promise their fathers they will never drink and drive or allow friends to do so.  They could also promise never to text and drive.  Promises like that will have real meaning to your Dad, and they will be especially empowering to you if you make the promise on Father’s Day.”

Matthew’s Mantra:  Make A Promise. Keep Your Word. Change Your Life. Transform The World.
