October 2011 Contest Entries

This month we have 3 entries to choose from, and since all SBE Suppliers have 100% completed applications on the free Supplier-Connection portal, we are off to the races.

Please click on the links and read each of the three submissions and then vote for the idea you think offers the most benefit to your business. I encourage you to comment on the entries, debate the merits of the ideas, especially the impact you think they can have on your business.

Submission #1: MotivAction, Inc.: Employees Drive Significant Cost Savings

Submission #2: JC Estimating Company, Inc.: Every Contact is a Potential Customer

Submission #3: Overture Promotions, Inc.: Company Culture Drives Success

Remember… the company with the most votes gets promoted on the Supplier-Connection web portal for the entire month of November. And as we gain more Member Partners (could a 10th major company be joining us soon? Join The Supplier-Connection Discussion Group on LinkedIn to be the first to know) and as more SBEs register, the promotion gains more and more value to the winner.

Voting ends Friday, October 21st at 8:00PM ET! Don’t delay, vote today!

Good luck & Godspeed!

About Dan Gallo

I'm a small business lifer, starting/running businesses since I sold seeds door-to-door as a kid in The Bronx. I've played guitar and enjoyed baseball since I was 5 (born a NY Yankees fan). Just prior to marrying Kim in 1983 I became a Christian. We have two sons; Daniel's a musician & social media expert with a smart, insightful sense of humor, and Adam who recently graduated from Brooklyn College double majoring in Creative Writing/Literature and Anthropology. Adam now works in the non-profit sector. Since 2002 one thing we love to do together is go on service/missions trips to Belize. We've collectively spent 60+ weeks in Belize with this missions organization http://twaw.org. I started my 1st company in January 1985, and been self-employed ever since. I sold my last company, Mentor Communications Group, in '04. After 2 years w/ the acquiring company I started The Allasso Group, LLC doing Small Business Consulting, Fund Raising/Capital Raise-up Campaigns, Sales Strategy, Outsourced Sales Agency work, & Digital Marketing Programs (Social Media, SEM, etc.) since April 2006. Notable projects: Hired as Small Business Advocate and Social Media Director for IBM's "Supplier-Connection" - Feb '11-Dec '13. Hired as COO to help turn-around late stage start-up software company myVRM. Jul12-Dec '13 Hired as CEO of CoupleWise.com, a Digital Health2.0 app, to write business plan, raise seed capital, & completely redesign and relaunch the app. Aug '16 I won a Finalist spot for MassChallenge UK's 2016 fall cohort in London from Sept thru Nov. Started Oct15 - Current. I enjoy helping turn-around struggling small businesses, and launching new business ventures. Feel free to contact me with opportunities.
