I love hearing small business success stories, and right now we need them more than ever as inspiration and motivation to hang on during rough times. That's why I want to let you know about a new contest that I've been asked to serve as a judge for. The Comeback 2010 Contest is being sponsored by Cortera, one of the leading business credit agencies. Here are the basics:
Cotera is offering over $5,000 in prizes for the best story (video or text) about their experiences as a small business owner, split into four categories:
· The Comeback: Tell us an inspiring story about a time when you went "all-in" for your business against big odds - perhaps a tough economy, or a fierce competitor.
· Cough It Up: Ever had trouble getting reimbursed by a business partner/vendor? We want to hear the story of how you got paid, and recovered the money you needed to grow your business.
· Hanging Out the Shingle: Tell us the story of when you broke from the pack, and started living your small business dream.
· Hometown Success: Share the story of how your company is making a real difference in your local community this year.
