Thank You!

It isn’t in our nature to self-promote much.  We don’t like to nag or beg.  But the last few weeks we have been doing everything we can to get out the votes for the Intuit Small Business Grant Competition.

THANK YOU to everyone who listened, voted, and left comments.

We are moved by the support.

The results of the competition will be announced June 4.  To us, we have already won by hearing from so many lovely customers and friends.

Today, we want to quickly update you about our progress in the Intuit Small Business Grant Competition.

If you have already voted, thank you!  We currently have just above 200 votes.  Votes only count for 40% of the competition, but that is an important percentage.  We aim to be in the top 10 by vote counts by the end of the contest, just 5 days from now!

Many of our customers and supporters have contacted us to say they are having trouble voting.  Of course we want to help!  Here’s how to vote:

1) Go to http://community.intuit.com/contests/dFOX2GyhGqllvkab8P4pmk
2) Watch our video
3) Click on one of the blue icons (funny, useful, or inspiring)
4) A registration screen will pop up.  Enter your email address and a password.

  • *If the ‘create account’ button isn’t working, look for red outlines – they indicate an error in the registration form.

5) The site will record your vote.
6) Click on the other two blue icons to give us two more votes.
7) Leave a comment if you wish.  Comments are not recorded as votes, but they might sway other viewers and we love to read what you think.

Some people have asked us about voting more than once from the same computer (i.e. if there is more than one person in the same household.)  If you want to do this, you first need to sign out by visiting http://community.intuit.com/ Then, go back to our video page (http://community.intuit.com/contests/dFOX2GyhGqllvkab8P4pmk) and complete steps 2 – 7 above.

Intuit has prepared a video cast if you prefer to watch the experience of voting before you take a stab at it.

If you still can not register your vote, please email Rachel right away.

Thanks again for your support!
