Let Me Judge Your Small Business

I’m going to be a judge for Fairfield’s Small Business Road to Success Challenge. If you have a small business that requires you to travel a lot, this could be an exciting opportunity. Here’s the official lowdown, from Fairfield:

About the Challenge
We’ll select 10 small business finalists and follow them not only as they travel around the country, but also as they strive to meet their business goals. Finalists will publicly share their journey by blogging, tweeting and posting photos. Finalists will be notified by September 9, 2010 and the program kicks off on September 13, 2010.

About the Grand Prize
After three months of traveling the country and working through set business challenges, our judging panel, comprised of small business experts and Marriott International executives, will award one of the 10 finalists the grand prize of $20,000.
