Today we bring in a proud member of our FrontRow community, Amber Vilhauer, who is stepping up to support FrontRowFoundation in a really unique way.

Amber is hosting a two-day live event June 3-4, 2019 called AuthorUpLive.com with partners Mike Michalowicz (bestselling author of Profit First, The Pumpkin Plan and Clockwork) and AJ Harper (Mike's writer and publishing strategist).

Attendees will be given a physical and digital copy of the “tested” launch plan which was designed to sell 10,000 copies of Mike’s next book week one. You’ll get connected with influencers and community at the event. PLUS… $1,000 of each ticket is donated to Front Row Foundation (use coupon code: FRF) – you’ll be making someone’s dream come true.

In this episode, Amber challenges all business owners to add a fundraising component to their next launch or event. During a previous launch (AuthenticBusinessSuccessSummit.com), Amber and her company NGNG Enterprises, Inc. (standing for NoGutsNoGlory) donated $10,000 to FrontRow, and her latest venture will surpass that milestone.

Enjoy this episode and I hope it inspires you to become a Business Ambassador for your favorite charity.
