|Fireworks Basket o’ Fun

The Brag Basket has become our tradition of sharing. The basket is always free and open all weekend, this one July 1-4, 2011. (I’ll spot you an extra day for the Fourth of July holiday in the US.)
Even though I call this the Brag Basket, it’s not really about bragging. It’s about sharing.
- 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
Don’t hold back because of that word, “brag.” When you hold back, you hide your good news and accomplishments that might inspire others.
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.
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.

This Canada Day I applaud @wheresandrew for showcasing Ontario, Canada in such an interesting way in his tweets.

I’ve finally moved my main site and main blog, The Franchise King Blog over to WP with the help of a great lady from Washington State.
it’s close enough to being done for me to announce as much in this here blog.
When you have a moment, check out the shiny new, and quite powerful,(using a Studiopress Theme) soon to be dominating the world of franchising..

Hello everyone! I’m sort of new here so if I’m not following the guidelines I apologize. I want to applaud one of my clients in western NY who adopted and successfully launched a mobile coupon system for their business. Sometimes it’s a little difficult to explain the benefits of an online anything when you’re working with small businesses, especially those in rural areas, but they took the plunge and with our help have been seeing some exciting buzz.
I hope everyone has an excellent weekend, thanks as always for the post!
I’d like to brag about our Canada Festivities here in Faro this year. Our Recreation Manager, Tina, and I applied for funding to host something a little different from the usual “hotdog BBQ and cake” that is the usual.
We had cakes and ice-cream cakes, an organic, vegetarian sandwich spread (with sliced meat for the carnivores among us), sushi, and an assortment of Greek and Turkish food. We were worried that people would be disappointed by the lack of hotdogs, but everyone we talked to expressed their happiness at something out of the ordinary.
The parade was well attended (there almost wasn’t anyone to *watch* the parade, since everyone was taking part!), and the games and activities throughout the day were full of people enjoying themselves.
We’ve learned a lot for next year (particularly about ordering food so that is can be packed in a cooler to make the four-hour drive to Faro) and we’re looking forward to planning our next event in August.
Argh, that should be “Canada Day Festivities.” That’ll teach me to be too excited to proof-read before hitting “post comment.”
