Welcome to the Brag Basket, our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one October 25-27, 2013. What good news will you add to 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.) 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.

Hi everyone! I am only 20 years old and I would like to brag about the fact that I have officially completed and sold my first website. It feels great and I completed this all while being a newlywed, being in university as a pre-dental student, and working a full time job. I incorporated my business and I’m ready to build more. I just needed to complete the first one in order to stop doubting myself. The first step is always the hardest. I hope everyone had a great month :)

I LOVE this blog. It has helped inspire my team and I to take matters into our own hands. I operate The Abbey Catering in San Diego and we decided to create our own app that handles scheduling for event-based businesses like ours. It’s totally free (and always will be) for everyone and you can find it at http://schedulehead.com

Congrats, Will. I applaud you for making your solution available to others.

Hi I’m Ivan and I am a small business owner. I had an amazing week keeping up with all the latest online news about small businesses. I congratulate a friend that was recently married. It’s funny how I tried to learn how to roller skate back when I was a kid and failed. I hope everyone can see the little achievements that they have this month so that they can attract more happiness and success.
