For Cathy and I, starting a new business was both exciting and fun, but also a little daunting. Being teachers for years, this was obviously something very new, and we had (and still have) a lot to learn. Since I am on a professional leave this year and Cathy is now home with Baby Paige for the rest of the semester, we are truly trying to stay on a budget and grow our new online business at the same time. We are most certainly always open to ANY tips we can get (and entering for a chance to win $1000 sounded pretty good too!)
You can enter for a chance to win the money on the BMO Harris Facebook page here: BMO Harris Bank Scavenger Hunt Sweepstakes. The scavenger hunt is easy to complete and contains some great tips for starting a new job and saving money. When you go to their Facebook page, just click on the icon to begin the scavenger hunt. Below is what the scavenger hunt looks like…
Once we actually started to see some income from our website, Cathy and I were so excited we started thinking BIG! Like this guy from the scavenger hunt!
Just kidding, but an actual office did sound pretty wonderful. (Probably a little steep for a brand new business that provides free resources, huh?) We have since learned that necessities have to come first and we need watch our spending. Thanks to one of the tips we picked up, we are also thinking about saving.
Make sure you enter for a chance to win $1000. You have from now until March 3, 2014 at 11:59:59 a.m. CT. The drawing will be held March 6, 2014.
