The Brag Basket is our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one July 27-29, 2012. Have some good news this week? Put it in the Brag Basket.

weekend, so I dug up this

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.

DURANT, Okla. – The Oklahoma Small Business Development Center (OSBDC) statewide network has received full accreditation without conditions from the Association of Small Business Development Centers (ASBDC).
This is my brag for the week! Our state wide association has worked so hard for the last year and a half to get ready for accreditation and the real benefit is not even ours! The real benefit is to our clients, small businesses across the state of Oklahoma who will receive the very best in no cost business advising because we have stepped up our services and the quality of the work we do. So I brag this week on our state office leaders, my co-workers and peers for a job well done!

Hi to all the friends of smbizsurvival. Kansas Kids More Than A Museum partnered with Siemens Energy Corp, both of Hutchinson KS. Saurday afternoon, 21 July 2012, young people ages 7 to 12, each with a parent/grand and project volunteer, designed and constructed blades out of various materials for wind turbine models. What was really cool was that each child got to test how many amps her/his wind turbine produced. This activity of discovery was so self-satisfying. The smiles never left their faces. This was not a competition. Most of the children however stayed at their stations bettering the wind power of their turbines. The inter-action between children and adults was quite a site. The parents/grands were so supportive and encouraging. The project volunteers were mostly teenagers. I was so proud of these teens; I am sure they are among our future leaders. Actual numbers were 29 young people experimenting with wind power and 20 parents/grands. The “audience” was quite large as well with the other parents/grands, friends of the families and just people interested in wind power and renewable energy. So the Kansas Kids Museum and Siemens wind turbine day was a success. Thanks everyone.
