I’m so excited to announce that I’m participating in the SCJ Clean Start Challenge this year. My mission in the challenge is to encourage mothers and woman to follow their dreams and I have some really cool interviews and tips lined up that I hope will motivate you to get out there, take a leap of faith and follow your dreams. I’m also thrilled that Colleen Padilla, founder of Classymommy.com will be my coach for the challenge. She started her entrepreneurial adventures in 2006.
About the Clean Start Challenge
The Clean Start Challenge 2011 is a video contest and sweepstakes presented by SC Johnson and hosted on Lifetimemoms.com.
Over the course of twelve weeks, three teams of Mom bloggers will tackle a cause they are passionate about and work toward bringing positive change to their community. Each team will reach out to experts and regular people who have been affected by their target issues in an effort to gather information and learn about available resources and strategies for making positive changes. Each team will be submitting a weekly video sharing what they learned. The American public will have a chance to support each team buy voting on their favorite each week. The winning team will receive $10,000 to donate to the charity of their choice; runners-up teams receive $2,500 to donate to their chosen cause.
Each month during the challenge your vote will enter you into three monthly prizes of $1000 and a Grand Prize of $5,000. All winners will receive a gift basket of products from SC Johnson. Five entries per day are permitted.
Since my challenge is so closely linked to entrepreneurship, I chose NFTE, Network for Teaching Entrepreneurship. The Networks for Teaching Entrepreneurship’s mission is to provide programs that inspire young people from low-income communities to stay in school, to recognize business opportunities and to plan for successful futures.
