With Father’s Day fast upon us, it makes sense for us to recognize some of our entrepreneurs who do double duty as dads. If you’re a dad and a Verizon customer who owns your own business, we have a contest that recognizes all your hard work.
Verizon’s ‘Hardest Working Small Biz Dad’ contest begins today and runs through June 19th. It’s simple to enter – just share your story with us. Tell us how you manage running your own business and your household by either uploading a short video or submitting a blog post.
The ‘Hardest Working Small Biz Dad’ in America will win$5,000 cash, 6 months of Verizon Websites powered by Intuit or Verizon WebListings, and free monthly maid service for an entire year. Just think of all the points you’ll earn with your spouse if neither of you need to clean for an entire year! Imagine the other things you can do… catch up on projects or finally tackle that long list of errands. The cash can go toward anything you desire, whether you put it towards your business or invest in some new technology (see the latest DROID phones here)… It’s your call. You deserve it!
Below you’ll find details on the contest and don’t worry if you want to submit a video, but don’t quite know how; our friends at Ladies Who Launch prepared a tutorial video to show you how!
Contestants need to be a Verizon or Verizon Wireless customer and submit a brief video (not to exceed 2 minutes with a URL link to their video submission) or a blog post (maximum 325 words) to this announcement in the comments section below. You will have to establish a log-in if you have never logged in before. Once a log-in is established you can submit your blog post.
In addition to the $5,000 and free cleaning service for a year grand prize, second prize will be a $600 gift card from Apple and $1,000 in a prepaid gift card. Third prize is a $500 prepaid gift card.
Again, dadpreneurs planning to submit a blog post, you must submit your blog post in the comment section that is at the end of this blog post. For dadpreneurs submitting a video, upload it to a video sharing site like Youtube or Vimeo and then share the link to your video in the entry form on the Verizon Small Biz Facebook page.
