In 2019, I was gifted the honor of republishing Helene Hadsell’s books. The first book was Contesting: The Name It & Claim It Game! I was also lucky enough to spend four days with her at the end of 2008, two years before she passed away. You can read about those adventures with Helene in the updated edition of her book.


If you are not familiar with Helene Hadsell, she was famous for winning every contest she ever entered.

This was my first podcast interview with Helene. I wasn’t the best interviewer at the time, but her messages and wisdom are so important they are still worth listening to.

This podcast was originally recorded as an episode of With The Contest Queen on BlogTalkRadio on Monday, August 4th, 2008.
