AXE Power Anthem Flip Cam Contest

The makers of AXE have offered up a special contest for my reader surrounding their Power Anthem campaign. The idea is that no matter what kind of mess you get into or what goes down, AXE can fix you up.

AXE Flip Cam Contest

The focus is on the replenishment and revival of hitting the shower first thing in the morning to start your day with a nice clean slate — regardless of what may have unraveled the night before. In life everyone has their rough patches or just those conversations, actions, or nights of partying they’d like to forget. It’s Eric Qualman’s social media revolution video that states “Whatever happens in Vegas stay on YouTube… Flickr… Facebook…” Thing is, these experiences help us grow. They might have knocked us down but that just gives us the chance to get back up and start fresh and be all the wiser.

In order to share experiences (and clean up a little bit) AXE is offering a range of products (shower gel, body spray) to one of my readers through a contest as well as a Flip MinoHD video camera. This way the winner can record and share their experiences with the cam — expressing who they are, sharing their experiences, and even using that delete button if need be.

AXE Flip Cam Contest

To enter to win the AXE gift pack, including the Flip MinoHD video camera and AXE products, leave a comment below with your own Power Anthem. This can be a turning point in your life (good or bad) that was either just an amazing event to remember or something that really helped shape you as a person. I’ll even accept a mantra or personal motto that keeps you going.

Please use 100 words or less and I’ll draw a winner from the entries on Monday, June 7th.

Update I just drew the winner and it’s Katherine – thank you to everyone for sharing.

Disclosure: I am not paid to publish or endorse contests. I did receive a Flip MinoHD to keep. Estimated prize value $175 in total.

    As someone who use to be a bit of a perfectionist and way to hard on myself, my mother taught me to: “Not worry about the things that I cannot change” because, sometimes you have to let things fall as they may. If I take one step at a time, I can deal with those challenges and cross those proverbial bridges when I get there.

    I was not happy on my 40th birthday. I had that feeling of “where the hell did the time go”. I will never forget what my significant other said to change my outlook, and I’ve remembered it every birthday since. He said to me, “Be happy you’re 40, it’s better than the alternative”.

    How true! I could be six feet under!

    It’s a bit cheesy but I live by the motto “live, love, laugh”. After a few years of being stuck in a rut, I took a huge chance, moved abroad and came back a much happier person. I lived in a new culture, found love there and laughed more than I can remember! My other motto is: Boredom is a choice

    They say it takes a minute to find a special person, an hour to appreciate them, a day to love them, but then an entire life to forget them.
