“Just Start” Your Business—Enter to Win $50,000!

When I said earlier this week that October was the month of QuickBooks, I may have been mistaken.

So far, Intuit and its leading small business accounting software are making a strong showing in November as well.

Yesterday I discovered the Just Start contest, sponsored by Intuit. Targeting the supposed 72% of Americans who yearn to start a business, Intuit is promoting an “entrepreneurial revolution,” and encouraging the undecided to “just start” making their business visions come true.

Free Software & a $50,000 Prize
Visit the web site to sign up to receive a free copy of the new “QuickBooks Simple Start 2008” small business accounting software and learn how to submit your entry to the Just Start business contest. The Grand Prize winner will receive $40,000 in cash and $10,000 in services to help her or him with a new entrepreneurial effort.

Entrepreneur Events
In addition to the contest entry, you can find out about Just Start entrepreneurial events happening around the country, and add your own pledge to Just Start doing what you love.

Contest Info
The contest started October 12. Entries will be accepted through December 15, 2007 and the winner announced the first week of February, 2008. Awards will be made on based on the feasibility of your business idea and the strength of your presentation.

I would have told you about it yesterday, but I wanted a head start in assembling my entry. Kidding.

Good luck! Let me know if you enter; I’ll mention your entry!
