Last Call to Enter Verizon's National Contest to Discover the 'Hardest Working Small Biz Dad'
NEW YORK – June 14, 2011 – With Father's Day fast approaching, the Verizon Small Business team has launched a contest to recognize fathers across America who run their own business.
Fathers who are entrepreneurs can enter the Verizon Hardest Working Small Biz Dad contest (www.verizon.com/smallbizdad) by submitting a short video or written blog post about a day in their lives and some of the challenges they face running a business and managing their family.
The first-prize winner will receive $5,000; a year of free cleaning service (valued at $2,400), and other valuable prizes.
"Many of Verizon's small-business customers are microbusinesses that often are started by entrepreneurs working from their homes," said David Wasserman, director of small business product management for Verizon. "We want the many father 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 care for a family."
