Fight Cancer, Get My Time

Last year, I rode in Cycle for Survival, and helped raise over $15 million for cancer.  You guys helped by donating over $2,000.

This year, it's even more personal.  As you know, I lost my beloved dog Kobe to cancer last Fall.


Meanwhile, my friend David Weekly lost his mother, and his brother is now fighting brain cancer.  My friend Don underwent surgery and chemo, and is currently in remission.

Cancer is a devastating disease that will eventually impact all of us, either directly, or via our family and friends.  It's a fight we all need to take on.

I'll make the same offer that I did last year--everyone who visits my Cycle for Survival page and donates gets some of my time:

$20 Donation: I will answer any one email you send me
$50 Donation: I will have a 20-minute telephone conversation with you
$100 Donation: I will meet you in person at my office (San Mateo, CA) or in Palo Alto
$500 Donation: I will take you out to a leisurely lunch (Peninsula only)

All proceeds go to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center (all expenses for the fundraiser are covered by donations), and are 100% tax deductible.

Just visit my Cycle for Survival page and donate. The website will send me your contact information, and I'll email you to schedule your appointment.

If you've ever lost someone to cancer, it's time to fight back.

UPDATE: Through Friday, 1/18, all donations will be matched, which means you'll effectively double your contribution!

UPDATE: I'm running a special promo with my friend at the Wages of Wins network. Correctly guess which NBA player will have the best game through Friday, and you can get upgraded one level (e.g. $20 for a phone call, $50 for an in-person meeting, $100 for a lunch).

I don't think I'm the only one to ask...is your time really that valuable? You're a pretty humble person, so I always thought you were a regular Joe trying to make it in Silicon Valley. But are we wrong? Are you some kind of secret John Doerr?

I leave judging the value of my time up to everyone else. I will say that this offer is a *lot* cheaper than the rate I usually get when people need me as a consultant.

Hi,

I have a quick question about your blog, would you mind emailing me when you get a chance?

Thanks,
