Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing. I started this so you can introduce yourself, share some good news, or congratulate a friend.
The basket is open all weekend, from September 17 – 19, 2010. I’ll be away from the computer this weekend. Could you lead the applause for me?
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. We all cheer, and everyone feels great. It lets you meet each other a bit. Reading each others’ stories brings us a bit closer to being a community.
How does it work? You write a comment on this post, email me, tweet me, or comment on Facebook. You tell something great about your week, or you give applause to someone who did good stuff this week. Or you celebrate something wonderful that you tried that failed.
This is not an ad. (I delete the ads.) It’s a conversation with friends. So jump in. And remember to cheer for each other.

I had a real estate closing this week, my sales numbers have doubled in the past three months! Amen!
Also, my friend Orion Remington of Two Vetereans Tree Service says business has been booming for him and he’s about to hire a tree climber! (361) 438-0880 to have some trees cut by Two Vets.

I’ve been recreating myself at 60, learning social media so I can help small business owners. This spring I got a contract with 1 small business & have created a blog, Facebook page and newsletter for them. The blog, The Real Deal, is at http://sbtrealdeal.wordpress.com, and the Facebook page is at http://facebook.com/sunbeltcanada. You can see the newsletter on their wall. All have launched within the last few weeks–the newsletter just three days ago!
It’s been tough learning the tools but rewarding. I’m also appreciating what I’m learning about small business and their challenges as I’m also writing on behalf of my client.
I find sites like this one very valuable.

Jerry, huge congrats on doubling in three months! And cheers to Orion, too!
Karen, congratulations! Your story reminded me of Deb Brown, @debworks. You two should talk sometime.
