And the Winner Is . . .

By John Jantsch

Last week I announced this contest asking my readers to submit the names of companies they thought deserved to win a Small Business Start-Up Kit that included the following items provided by the good folks at Office Depot.

  • 1 Toshiba Satellite® U405-S2911 Notebook Computer With Intel® Pentium® Dual-Core Processor
  • 1 Fellowes® PS 79ci 100% Jam Proof Cross-Cut Shredder
  • 1 Lexmark X 7675 All-In-One Printer/Copier/Scanner/Fax Machine
  • 1 Year Subscription to the HP Upline Service, an online storage solution that can be used for both backup and file sharing purposes

TEL.A.VISION a company submitted for consideration by Duct Tape reader Sue Hanson was chosen at random from over 100 entries.

Reading through the comments left by readers it’s obvious there are many great companies deserving of this award and many great people willing to step up and tell us about their friends and colleagues. TEL.A.VISION’s mission is inspiring and I certainly hope these tools can help them continue to do such great work.

TEL.A.VISION’s free service is being used by schools and youth groups across the nation. Their goal is to have every youth (and others)…create their very own vision video of hope and possibility.
They are operating on an extremely small budget, using George’s money, and they are offering such a great service for free!!!

It is refreshing to know that people are still doing great things because they feel it is the right thing to do. TEL.A.VISION could use the contest winnings to reach more people and bring this to more youth.
Please consider this company that is doing something for others…our future really is about vision.”

Instead of sending people to a generic page, it’s far more […]
How to Build an Effective Referral Program
