Selling my Lacrosse Book on Amazon through Create Space overseas

Selling my Lacrosse Book on Amazon through Create Space overseas while not advertising for this is great during the holidays!

Selling my Lacrosse Book on Amazon through Create Space overseas


I just wanted to share a short post about the awesomeness of the holidays and seeing a boost in book sales for my Lacrosse Book on Amazon through Create Space overseas.  Starting mid November, I noticed that either people think my book is awesome, or they are getting prepared for the holidays.

As seen in the image above, there have been 6 sales in the US, 2 in Europe and a whopping 10 in Great Britain.  Yes, this is awesome for a couple reasons.

  1. This means the word is out there about my book
  2. People might be sharing it with their friends
  3. It should help build rank for my book on Amazon
  4. More Lacrosse players around the world are going to experience the book
  5. My market share continues to grow
  6. There is still time before the holidays to sell more

I could go on about why it is awesome of course, though I will spare you my short moment of egotistical enjoyment!

Besides, who doesn’t love selling something, especially when they really did not have to do anything for it.  Not to say I did nothing for those sales, though I do not ever advertise my book on Amazon.  I do however advertise in other mediums, which might result in someone doing a random Google search of the book to see if they can get it elsewhere, like on Amazon.

There are more perks to picking it up from my personal site at like a bonus digital copy that is instantly accessibly as well as bonuses like training videos, extra tips and ideas through email coaching and an awesome sticker as well!

You also will be able to stay up to date on specials and other great training tools and products like the Lacrosse Powershaft which helps you shoot faster, check hard and throw farther, just to name a few of the benefits.  You can see what they have to say about that here:

Whether you grab the Commandments of Lacrosse through Amazon (click on the image above) or through my website (see link above) be sure to get out there and take action on becoming a better player in the game of lacrosse…and be sure to tell your friends about the book as well as referrals are always welcome (and you can actually earn commissions when you promote the book as shown here:

Keep the sales coming Lacrosse fans…I love seeing them in my Create Space member area!

Lake Placid Lacrosse 2010

Going to the Lake Placid Lacrosse Tournament for the first time ever in 2010 was worth the wait.

Having played Lacrosse for almost 30 years now with the tournament going strong for over 20, it was nice that I finally got the opportunity to head up to Lake Placid and participate on the Laxfu team which was made up of many of my old high school Lacrosse alumni from West Genesee HS, in Camillus, NY as well as some of their respective college teammates, many of which were Priceton Tigers.

Playing 4 games in 28 hours was a little interesting on the body after not really getting into the shape I wanted to be in prior to the games.  Running had been bothering my knee so I figured I might as well save the pain for the tournament.  A tweak here, a tightening there,  a bruise or slashmark over there and I ended up making it through without a “major” injury, which is always a blessing when trying to be a weekend warrior.

Getting together with everyone was great off the field as well to be able to catch up on times and see how their families have grown (many wives, parents and children attended as well).  To develop new friendships with teammates from other schools was also a great reminder of the power of lacrosse.  It is such a community developer and allows for networking to blossom and has allowed many of us to be successful in our current careers.

Though going up with the intent to be competitive, which we were, just missing the championship tournament by a few points, we ended up 2-2, losing both of our afternoon games (the second of each day).  One of the loses was by only 1 goal and the other was to the eventual champion, Rusty Red, a group of Cornell Alumnus (who repeated as champs).  The other intent was to have a good time, which I believe all that came did, from the players to their family.  I am looking forward to next year already and will get myself in a little better shape so the recovery is quicker on my aging bones!

The surroundings themselves were great, though it could have been a little warmer when we were not playing.  Taking part in some of the Olympic scenery and the Jumping Center was great and my three girls loved watching the “skiers” go down the hills, leap and flip into the pool below!

Lacrosse Packguy for free

After getting a great set of materials from Russel Brunson, I was guided to a program called TrialPay. This program allows you to team up with various companies in an effort to be able to give your own products away for free. A customer enrolls in TrialPay and takes part in one offer such  as buying a domain name at GoDaddy or ordering flowers to send to a loved one. Often the person will pay much less than the cost of the product of interest. Once the transaction completes, the customer is then eligible to recieve the product for free. The company will cover the cost involved for the item and pay the original merchant (as they are happy to do when they gain a new customer as well).

The company will then deposit funds into the merchants account and will contact them with information regarding the sale as well as contact information for the customer so that preparation for shipping the product can be completed. After establishing and verifying this information, the merchant will ship the product to the customer. Here they may send additional offers for similar products of interest.

For my first attempt at TrialPay I  decided to give away the new Lacrosse Packguy for Free. I had previously written about the Lacrosse Packguy a few weeks ago and have been actively promoting this product to my players, friends and Lacrosse players online through word of mouth, demonstrations, twitter, facebook, eBay, craigslist, safelists and more. The product is selling for $25 plus tax and shipping. Through TrialPay, I can now offer the Lacrosse Packguy for free.

This is a great Lacrosse product to either use yourself of to give as a gift and the offers should all be considered. If you want more than one, supposing you have a few children who play or kids in the neighborhood, you can do the trial pay offer a couple different times as long as you use a different offer from a different company each time, to the best of my knowledge.

Lacrosse Packguy to the rescue….Lacrosse what? Here is the Business Card I made along with a 6 foot banner with Vista Print for a great price.

I  took my daughter to the Gary Gait Lacrosse clinic today in the Syracuse, NY area at the CNY Family Sports Center at Jones Road.  The sports center was packed and both boys and girls were instructed through dodging, shooting, agility drills and more.  I was fortunate enough a few days prior to the event to get a hold of someone  who was sponsoring the program and was able to get a Lacrosse Packguy in as one of the raffle prizes.  Why not get a little publicity at the same time as my daughter learns from one of the greatest players ever.

I showed a couple people (parents) who were waiting and watching their children and they took interest of this new product developed in Syracuse, when the creator’s daughter kept losing her mouth guard.  Over a series of molds and trials, the Lacrosse packguy was made to be rugged and “do things a bag can’t,” explains Pat Guy, when I asked about the organizational tool.  The piece itself is made from rubberized plastic and can hold all of your Lacrosse equipment, but does not put undue stress on the head of the stick, which can be easily removed when needed, without affecting the equipment.  Unlike a bag, it can get wet and easily hangs on a hook of some sort to allow gear to dry.  It contains a specific spot for both a Lacrosse ball and mouth guard, so that you do not have to search all over the bag to locate it from your previous practice or game.

The Lacrosse Packguy is so easy to use, even my 8 year old mastered it in about 1 minute and even helps with promoting it for me.  She is the star in one of the videos listed at, where you may see a demo by both me and one of my daughter showing just how easy it is to use.  Mom’s and Dad’s all over will love how it can easily hang up when at the house, so there are not piles of equipment laying all over.  The fact that it promotes drying will help to prevent the smell from progressing, which often results when wet gear is left in a bag until the next practice.

As the raffle got under way, my bright yellow/gold Lacrosse Packguy seemed to stand out against a sea of dark shirts, Frisbees, hats and of course the sticks and other equipment that was being offered.  Kids kept coming up and looking right over the Packguy.  The helpers would move it somewhat to promote that it was there and perhaps get a taker.  Finally, Gary Gait himself picked it up and was telling the kids it was a Lacrosse tool to hold all your gear (as some started to give odd looks and question what it was). Finally when all the Lacrosse gear was basically gone, Gary passed it to a boy of about 14-16 who seemed somewhat confused.  I was able to catch up with him when he was coming off the field to show him how it worked, after which he seemed a little more grateful that he had won this prize.

As the Lacrosse packguy is new to the Lacrosse world, it might take some time getting use to the stares and questions.  I am looking forward to talking to people about this great new organizational tool and showing them just what they are missing by not using one.  As time goes on and the news spreads, they will become more comfortable with the item and will want to get one or give one to someone else as they know the value it possesses.

After the event, I waited in line with my daughter for an autographed poster of the 2010 Syracuse Women’s Lacrosse team (THANKS GIRLS!!!) I was able to show and talk to Gary Gait about the product again.  He said he had seen it at a summer tournament (at the school where the Developer sends his kids ironically) but was not using it currently with his team.    I gave him my card of course and will definitely contact him about working with his team in the future in regards to this product.

We were taught early on where I played at Shove Park and West Genesee, to never lean on our sticks, but instead to value and respect them.  We would though always throw all of our equipment onto the head when we were bringing it home for the weekend or over the summer to box Lacrosse etc.  The same continued at college where I was a Red Dragon at Cortland State where it would  go on the stick itself or in a bag.  When you wanted to play catch again, you would have to take everything off and leave a pile behind which didn’t always make people happy.  Now all those problems are easily solved with the Lacrosse Packguy!  Everything fits on this new tool.  There is even a place to hook your carabineer up for your keys so you do not lose them.

If you are sick of your, or your children’s/friend’s/roommate’s/neighbor’s gear being all over the place, then head over to where you can find out about ordering and having the Lacrosse packguy shipped to your house.  Team rates apply for larger orders and you can contact to determine a price.

When all was said and done, my 8 year old daughter was tired from all the drills she completed and starving as it was about 7:30 by the time we left the sports center.  She enjoyed the day and again helped me out in letting people know about the Lacrosse packguy!  Now, if I can just learn some of the tricks that Gary Gait has mastered, I would be all set.
