UPDATE: Secrets to Success from Small Business Owners is now live on American Express OPEN Forum. I believe there is lots more advice and gut checks that fellow owners can share that can help each of us, in some way, on our entrepreneurial journey. Please feel free to click through to the forum and answer some of the questions there as a way to continue this conversation.
Thanks for visiting and reading. I’m working on a post for American Express OPEN Forum and looking for inspired and inspiring small business owners or those who serve them. SCROLL all the way to the end for special thank you prize chance.
Here’s what I need:
Insightful thoughts on helping a business to grow, how to make the best decisions with limited information, how to execute day-in, day-out and get the work done. It may be how you simply get stuff done yourself, in your small company.
I’d like them to be funny, clever, poignant, touching, insightful, powerful, and SHORT — I know it is a lot to ask for.
Here’s what I don’t need:
Cliches, obvious comments on “follow your passion” or “work hard” or “love what you do.”
1. Put your pertinent details in the comments below. Name, email (not published), website, and your quote. You can now use this form: http://techbiztalk.com/welcome to share your thoughts.
2. The best quotes will go up in lights, as the saying goes, next Thursday I hope. I’ll publish your quote with a link and short, short, short description of your company or just its name. I do have editors, of course, so I’ll do my best to highlight your co.
P.S. And just to say a special thanks, I’m putting up a $20 Amazon gift card to one lucky winner who also tweets out this post. Contest closes next Monday, July 30th, at 11:59pm Pacific Time.

I’ll select one winner for this contest using Random.org based on the comment number tied to your quote/thought. Just like the hard drive giveaway for the Website Success Gallery (post still in the works — a TON of submissions to look at).
Oh, and you might want to sign up for my email newsletter as it shares other media opportunities, promotion ideas, new websites and other stuff to help you grow your company. Signup in the upper right corner. I respect your privacy and never spam. It’s bad for the environment…
P.P.S. Last thing — if you want to submit your website for consideration — the Website Success Gallery is open. The contest is closed, but you can submit your site and I’ll take a look and if selected share it here on TechBizTalk and on Facebook.
