The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one July 20-22, 2012. Have some good news this week? Put it in the Brag Basket.

Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others. Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
What can you do in the Brag Basket?
- introduce yourself
- share some great news from this week
- congratulate a friend
- laugh about something wonderful that you tried that failed
- applaud for each other
Speak up and add yourself or another deserving soul in the comments. 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. We all cheer, and everyone feels great.
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.

Becky–What a great idea!
I launched my blog (http://www.hullfinancialplanning.com) and got approved by state regulators this week. I’m in a small town (Charlottesville, Virginia, population about 50,000), but am a firm believer that, using the power of social media, people anywhere, no matter how small the town, can reach the world!

Jason, congratulations! I’m a believer, too!

Becky, just wanted to share my joy at being a Chevy #KeysToSTL recipeint this past week.
They loaned me a 2012 Silverado and it’s opened my mind about truck ownership. I’ve enjoyed the ride and wouldn’t mind if they let me keep it longer.
