SmartMoney Small Business Challenge

December 8, 2006

Smart Money magazine is accepting applications for their Smart Start Small Business Challenge now through January 31, 2007.

What a better way to start off the new year than by winning a prize package “consisting of $5,000, a laptop computer and $200,000 worth of SmartMoney and advertising for your new business”!

Resolving to Make a Difference
Planning out your New Year’s Resolutions yet? Why not make one of them to start a business that effects positive financial change in the lives of others? The current debt levels, low savings rate, and looming Social Security crisis provide a huge potential customer base, just waiting for us to help them!

The Challenge
Of course I can’t throw down the gauntlet without taking on the challenge myself. I formed my company several months ago and have been in the process of idea gathering and analyzing since then. The personal finance blogging community has been a great source of inspiration and ideas for me. What great concept has it generated for you?

While I can’t offer the big bucks like SmartMoney, I’ll do my part to inspire others. Over the weekend I’ll think about what challenge and incentive I can provide and will announce the Money Smart Life Small Business Challenge on Monday, stay tuned!
