Sometimes entering a radio contest pays off as it did for me a couple of weeks ago when I e-mailed my entry to a contest on Sirius Satellite’s What She Says program that runs every morning on CBC Talk Radio, Channel 167 starting at 10:00 a.m. I always enjoy the topics covered by hosts Kate Wheeler, Christine Bentley and Sharon Caddy Their guests are interesting and the topics of discussion are of interest to women as well as men. In promoting a line of work boots designed specifically for women, they were offering a free pair to the person who submitted the best reason for why they should win. Here’s what they said:
WINNER OF OUR “SHOW US YOUR MOXIE” CONTEST
This contest entered the construction phase with the appearance of our guest Marissa McTasney, the inspirational entrepreneur who told us her story of ditching corporate world high heels for the trade’s world work boots … only to find out there was no such thing as women’s work boots! Marissa is now President of Moxie Trades Ltd. whose first product was the Iconic Pink Work Boot for WOMEN! You can check out the entire line of women’s safety apparel now available at www.moxietrades.com
” As someone who spent most of my career in the construction industry it was always frustrating to me that I had to buy MEN’S size 4 safety boots, which were nearly impossible to source in the days before the internet. I looooooove these boots – just wish they’d been available years ago. As a cool, rockin’ Boomer chick I’d really do them justice. Everyone would stop me and ask where I got those boots (Amelia boots) and I’d be your best promoter.” Here is a picture of Lynda Davis wearing her men’s size 4 safety boots. We are sure you will all agree how amazing she will look in her brand new black Amelia work boots – with pink laces of course!
