Congratulations to Cheryl Stahle who won first place with 145 votes.

Richard Potter was the first man to be featured on the “My Gutsy Story” contest and he wrote a positive and inspiring story about how in helping others, you overcome your own fears. Richard wrote a comment I wanted to share with you in case you haven’t seen it: “Sonia, I’ve been tracking the votes each day. Then I received this comment (look for Richard’s comment to read the quote) on a social media site, and realized that the contest is not the main thing. The impact the story has on others is the main thing! Thanks for the vehicle to spread these stories and their impact around the world!”
Muriel Demarcus wrote a fabulous story about getting out of her comfort zone and adapting to a new life in the U.K. Not only that, but she started your own company, taught herself English, and started a successful blog French Yummy Mummy.
Ian Miller shared his Gutsy adventure back in the 60′s. As he mentioned, those days in Czechoslovakia influenced him and his writing. We look forward to reading his future novels. Ian Miller’s website, and join him on Facebook.
