Intuit’s Love a Local Business Contest ($25,000 Grants!)


Being a small business owner is fun, exciting, challenging and, okay, sometimes a little scary! Intuit knows this and wants to celebrate small businesses and help them grow through their Love a Local Business competition.

They’re giving away more than $1 million in Intuit small business grants, and each month a small business will win a $25,000 grant! Plus, in July they’re giving away an additional $50,000 in grants to businesses in the two cities with the most nominations.

Growing a small business isn’t easy, and Intuit wants to help great businesses grow. They’re doing more than just talking about it, though; they’re making it possible through these grants.

Vote for Life Your Way

Although my business is “local” to the online community rather than a specific geographic location, it still qualifies for this competition, and I’d love if you’d take a minute to vote for Life Your Way!

What would I do with a $25,000 grant? Well…

  • Add additional functionality to the site, including expanding menus, channel landing pages, faster page loads and more.
  • Hire channel editors to provide even more great content across all of the channels.
  • Offer more free ebooks.
  • Run more promotions, contests and giveaways.

Each vote is like a raffle ticket, and the winner will be drawn randomly, so every vote counts and offers a chance for Life Your Way to win! Click here to vote now.
