Guess Alex’s Birthday

Well, the day is nearing.  Sometime during the month of June, all going as planned, I will be the proud father of a baby boy.  As of this date, Carla and I are set on naming him Alexander.  We love the name, but I will admit that we’ve been a bit fickle of late…lol.

Carla’s due date is June 20th, but Alex could come along any day now.  So, how about a friendly contest?

If you’d like a private coaching call with me to help you with your business then keep reading!  The first person to post the correct – or nearest to correct – date and time that Alex is born will get a 45 minute coaching call with me. I’m also going to toss in at least one more gift, so keep an eye out for that as well.

All you have to do is enter a comment below with your guess of the date and time.  Again, the expected due date is June 20th, 2012. Carla has been doing amazing and everything looks to be on schedule, but there’s always some wiggle room there…pun intended 😉

So, get your guesses in and good luck!  If you’d like to ask any clarifying questions go ahead and do so below.  All times are assumed to be in Eastern Standard unless you specify otherwise.

~~~BIG DISCOUNT Until Alex is Born~~~

Also, if you want to pick up my Info Product Weekend On Demand training program at a HUGE discount you can go to the link below.  This is all of the video training that Info Product Weekend clients receive when they enroll in the live IPW events.  There are over 20 incredible videos that walk you through each step of creating and selling your own information products.

===>Info Product Weekend On Demand

You’ll even receive my resources list so that you can contact the vendors that I personally use when creating my info products.  This includes 2 of my graphic designers, 2 transcriptionists and the only product fulfillment company that I’ve ever used.

The training modules break everything down into simple, bite-sized steps to help you:

  • create e-books
  • create audio courses
  • record video products
  • write simple, effective sales pages
  • build your list of perfect prospects
  • price your products & programs
  • and much more

The normal price is $497 for the IPW On Demand, but you can choose the full pay option for just $197 until Alex is born. Again, the due date is June 20th, but this could realistically be any day now.

So, let’s have some fun as we prepare for our newest family member!

1) Post a comment below with your guess of the date and time that Alex will be born.  The closest guess receives a private coaching call with me along with one or two other goodies.

2) If you would like to create your own information product to elevate your expert status and have an additional (and passive) form of income for your business then be sure to check out the Info Product Weekend On Demand training program.  ===>IPW On Demand

Have a great weekend and Happy Guessing 😉

    Woohoo…that was a quick post, Stephanie. Thanks! Have a great weekend and I will keep everyone posted!

Congratulations to your family Tom,

My youngest daughter is named Alex (Alexandrea). If your Alex is anything like
mine he won’t come until he’s good and ready. I’ll guess June 22. 🙂

    Tom - June 1, 2012 Reply

    Hey Joanne

    Unfortunately for Carla, you might be right…lol. Alexandrea is a beautiful name! Thanks for the quick post and have a fantastic weekend!

teresa - June 1, 2012 Reply

I hate to say this, but I’m guessing June 26, 3:45pm. !! Congrats and enjoy this special time (and go do a bunch of stuff, just the two of you, to commemorate this impending joyful arrival!) Wish you both, and baby Alexander, the best! Teri

    Tom - June 1, 2012 Reply

    LOL…I won’t let Carla see that guess 😉 Thanks, Teri.

Eric - June 1, 2012 Reply

Congratulations Tom!

Great name middle one 🙂

June 17th ..9:23 pm

    Tom - June 1, 2012 Reply

    Cool, Eric. That’s my nephew’s middle name too. We’ve always loved it. Thanks!

Faye - June 1, 2012 Reply

First baby, I’m guessing June 23 about 3 am.
An aside: Remember to get two small combs in case she has back labor — one for each hand. She can squeeze the combs and hit the accupressure points on the palms. It really helps! Have fun!

    Tom - June 1, 2012 Reply

    Get out! That’s such a cool tip. Thanks, Faye.

Jim Koehneke - June 1, 2012 Reply

My daughter had her first child last year, and now my grandson is 17 months- adorable. Love your kid to death is my best advice, and get him writing his first book at 6 as an info product! My BD is June 19, so I’ll go with that at 9:30 am!

    Tom - June 1, 2012 Reply

    Hey Jim,

    Congrats (17 months late) on being a grandfather! Awesome. Looks like Alex will be in good company with you…at least very close to the same date regardless.

    Thanks for the advice as well. I will love him like crazy and get him to writing – and playing the guitar 😉

Congratulations Tom to you and your family on you new addition to your family and a safe arrival. Tom, see if you can video tape the minute Alex is born with baby and Mommy together. That would be priceless.

Alex will arrive on June 21, 2012 at 4:40 PM and weighing in at 6 lbs 10 ozs.

Enjoy your new buddy Alex,

Sue - June 1, 2012 Reply

First babies are often later but I’m going to pick — June 19th at 1:05am – That’s when I was born so figured it might be lucky & quite the coincidence if it comes to being.

Congrats & best wishes for a healthy baby,

Kellie - June 1, 2012 Reply

I was 3 weeks late, so I’ll go with July 4, 3pm 🙂
(Though doctors would probably induce before that, they are so sadly paranoid now.)

Hello Tom.

Alex will be born on June 20th at 11:14 pm, and will weigh 8lbs.

My daughter’s middle name is Alexandra, chosen by her birth mother. Raising her was the most absorbing and worthwhile thing I have done – watch out, your joy level is about to sky-rocket!

Janey - June 2, 2012 Reply

Hi Tom Alex’s birth will be special for you and Carla congrats. Altho many first babies are late I am going with an early birth 1.05am 16th june. When you talk to him next say Hi. Babies love being talked too and music while in utero.

Sonyan White - June 6, 2012 Reply

Congratulations, I love families! Each of my children changed my world for the better and I hope this is true for you.
I choose June 18 2:47am for Baby Alexander’s birth.

Do you know “On Children” by Kahlil Gibran? I hope you don’t mind if i share it with you.

On Children

And a woman who held a babe against her bosom said, “Speak to us of Children.” And he said:
Your children are not your children.
They are the sons and daughters of Life’s longing for itself.
They come through you but not from you,
And though they are with you, yet they belong not to you.
You may give them your love but not your thoughts.
For they have their own thoughts.
You may house their bodies but not their souls,
For their souls dwell in the house of tomorrow, which you cannot visit, not even in your dreams.
You may strive to be like them, but seek not to make them like you.
For life goes not backward nor tarries with yesterday.
You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth.
The archer sees the mark upon the path of the infinite, and He bends you with His might that His arrows may go swift and far.
Let your bending in the archer’s hand be for gladness;
For even as he loves the arrow that flies, so He loves also the bow that is stable.

Good luck. Your life will never be the same!

Linda - June 8, 2012 Reply

p.s. he might be an alexander right now (very popular name) but he might be someone else when he comes out. keep an open mind. i deal with kids as a pediatric surgeon (ENT) so I know all about these things 🙂
