Interview with John G. Miller, Going Rogue Jacket Winner

Posted by Ron Devito on December 22, 2009

In this interview, John G. Miller spoke with Ron Devito about winning Governor Palin’s red Going Rogue jacket in an online auction to benefit the Wounded Warrior Project and Fisher House.

Devito: “Tell me a little about yourself.”

Miller: “I authored three books, QBQ! The Question Behind the Question: Practicing Personal Accountability at Work and in Life, Flipping the Switch…: Unleash the Power of Personal Accountability Using the QBQ!, and Outstanding!: 47 Ways to Make Your Organization Exceptional. I also do speaking engagements on personal accountability and have been on the market for 15 years. I self-book almost all my engagements. I spoke for your employer — Con Edison — about personal accountability in September 2005.”

Between QBQ and Flipping the Switch, Miller has over one million books in print. Outstanding is set to publish January 1, 2010.

Devito: “How did you find out about the Going Rogue jacket”

Miller: “I was online, and saw the link to the jacket on Laura Ingraham’s site. I thought it would be a fun way to donate to help wounded veterans. One person bid $56,000. I bid $57,000 Friday (December 18, 2009) morning and found out one minute later that I owned it!”

Devito: “What is your personal connection to wounded veterans?”

Miller: “My son-in-law, Justin Gallagher, 25 fought in Fallujah, during the surge. He returned home safe and sound in 2007, but three of his buddies died from IEDs. A fourth friend lost both of his legs from a road-side bomb.”

Devito: “What is your opinion of Sarah Palin?”

Miller: “I respect her. Our values are similar. I think she is a woman of integrity. It’s not about Sarah. It’s about the values she represents: smaller federal government, less entitlement programs, strong national defense, pro-life, competition in the marketplace, capitalism. I’m a capitalist! Innovation comes from capitalism. When people compete, they have to be creative. I voted McCain-Palin in 2008. My daughter and my wife both love her.”

Devito: “What are your plans, now that you have this jacket?”

Miller: “I’m going to continue teaching personal accountability and responsibility to counter the tidal wave of victim thinking, which is very contagious and a cancer in our society. I’d love to meet Sarah now that I have her jacket!”

The winning bid was first announced by Podomani, a web design and marketing firm which handles Miller’s websites: QBQ and Outstanding Organizations.

Miller lives in CO. He and his wife, Karen, have seven children … and a horse. He grew up in Ithaca, NY

Cathy Maples Wins Sarah Palin Dinner

Posted by Ron Devito on September 19, 2009

Chance of a Lifetime Experience with Governor Sarah Palin
Highlights Ride 2 Recovery eBay Charity Auction

On September 18, the first annual Ride 2 Recovery EBay Charity Auction ended with amazing results. Collectively, the auction items brought in over $95,000. Ride2Recovery is thrilled to be able to use these funds towards their upcoming rides with our veterans.

After a week of heavy media coverage, the highlight of the auction, a dinner experience with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin, was won by Cathy Maples of Huntsville Alabama, with a bid of $63,500.

Ride2Recovery was also thrilled that the exclusive lunch with Karl Rove was won with a bid of $16,000 to have a meal with the former Deputy Chief of Staff.

The money raised from this effort will go to support the participation of wounded heroes in the R2R program and events, purchase bikes, helmets, and other technical equipment required for the wounded heroes.

The mission of Ride 2 Recovery is to improve the health and wellness of wounded heroes by providing a life changing experience that can impact their lives forever.

R2R supports Spinning® Recovery Labs and outdoor cycling programs at Military and VA locations around the U.S. to help injured veterans overcome obstacles they face. Ride 2 Recovery improves the health and wellness of injured veterans through cycling. Cycling is an important part of the recovery process because it is an activity that almost all patients with mental and physical disabilities can participate, and because it helps to speed up the rehabilitation process.

On October 4, 2009, more than 150 injured veterans and supporters will set off down the California coast on the seven- day, 460-mile, Golden State Challenge from San Francisco to LA. In December, the injured vets will ride from Tampa to Jacksonville finishing at the Jaguars game vs. the Colts on December 17.

Posted by Gary P Jackson on September 7, 2009

A true once in a lifetime event, the winner of this celebrity auction will spend a memorable evening having dinner with former Alaska Governor Sarah Palin and her husband Todd. Sarah has graciously donated her time to help raise money for the Wounded Warriors Ride 2 Recovery program

Sarah whose son, Track, enlisted in the Army on September 11, 2007, is serving in Iraq. Sarah herself recently returned from a trip to Kosovo visiting her Alaska National Guard troops and Germany visiting wounded warriors.

Ride 2 Recovery is a program that helps wounded troops rehabilitate their injuries and rebuild their athletic ability. From their mission statement:

To improve the health and wellness of wounded warriors by providing a life changing experience that can impact their lives forever.

R2R supports Spinning® Recovery Labs and outdoor cycling programs at Military and VA locations around the U.S. to help injured veterans overcome obstacles they face. Cycling is an important part of the recovery and rehabilitation program for two reasons:

1. Cycling is an activity that almost all patients with mental and physical disabilities can participate.

2. Participation in the Ride 2 Recovery Program helps speed up the recovery and rehabilitation process.

The winner of the charity auction will be able to bring 4 friends along for what will be an incredible evening with the Palins. The winning bidder will be responsible for their airfare to Alaska and lodging. The bidding will open at $25,000.

The auction, which runs from September 8-18, will also feature other great experiences up for bid.

Rove, a Fox News contributor, and weekly op-ed columnist for The Wall Street Journal and Newsweek, will most certainly offer up an interesting and thoughtful lunch. The opening bid for lunch with “Bush’s Brain” is $7,500

Award winning conservative actor Gary Sinise, star of the CBS television series CSI: New York is offering up a set experience and wrap party to a lucky fan. Sinise is a well known supporter of the troops, giving generous amounts of his time to help. He also can be heard doing the voice overs for Army recruiting advertising. .

Gary also has a band, The Lt. Dan Band, named for his unforgettable character from the movie Forrest Gump. Sinese uses the band as a way to raise money for the troops, and also to entertain the troops on his many visits to see them in the field. You can learn more about his band here.
