Help us reach critical mass in the Brag Basket

Bike with a basket carrying a sign that says "This Friday, meet here for critical mass."

When you share your good news with other small town people, you help us reach critical mass. Photo (CC) by themostinept on Flickr.

The Brag Basket is open! This one is for February 7-9, 2014.

What can you do in the Brag Basket?

  • introduce yourself
  • share some great news from this week
  • congratulate a friend
  • applaud for each other

How do you join in?

  • Below this post is the comment section. Add your brag there.
  • If you read these by email, just reply to the email with your brag. I’ll add it to the comments.

Don’t like to brag? Just share some good news for yourself or a friend.

Do you have to be from a small town? Well, no, not really. Just don’t make it an ad. I delete the ads that people stick in here. If you talk more about the people involved than the things, you’ll be fine.

It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

New here? Take the Guided Tour. Like what you see? Get our updates.

    I am really excited about SOBcon and the fantastic Liz Strauss. Liz is definitely a survival and champion of business people.

    Our business got featured on TV. This brought in lots of new sales. I guess we are pretty excited as it is a flower business on Valentine’s Day.
