Hi! I'm Dane Carlson, and welcome to the Business Opportunities Weblog. I've been publishing this website, by myself, and sometimes with the help of others for over twelve years now. You'll notice two things about this site right away:
According to AOL Small Business, Verizon has started a contest looking for the hardest working small biz mom. The contest, which is open until May 22nd, is searching for moms all across the United States. There are two main requirements: you must be a mom who runs a small business and you must use Verizon’s services.
To enter, contestants need to submit a brief video (not to exceed two minutes) or a blog post (maximum 325 words) that describes a day in the life of their business and motherhood. “We want the many mother entrepreneurs we have to tell us more about what they’re doing, how they’re doing it, and what it really takes to run a business and a family,” Mary Yarbrough, vice president of business marketing, said in a statement.
The grand-prize winner will receive $5,000 and a year of free cleaning services valued at $2,400. Verizon will also select a second-prize winner, who will receive a free iPad and $1,000 prepaid gift card, and a third-prize winner, who will receive a $500 prepaid gift card.
Fathers: Keep your eyes open for a similar contest featuring you next month!
