Hello friends and colleagues,

You can help PiggyBack Books get off to an amazing start this summer by rating our video in the Intuit Small Business Community Grant Competition.The story I wrote about my journey from being an Educator to Entrepreneur using the analogy of the Wizard of Oz was ranked 21 out of 2000 entries. Your votes really made a difference and I am now one of 50 finalists. With the help of some dear friends I made a video . IT IS VERY FUNNY.

YOU CAN HELP ME WIN THE GRAND PRIZE BY VIEWING AND RATING THE VIDEO. IF YOU THEN INVITE 5 PEOPLE  PERSONALLY TO DO THE SAME I AM SURE TO GET INTO THE FINAL 10 ! Then it will be up to the judges.

So go to http://shar.es/1wvr to rate the video

Watch it, click on rate this video – please mark it in all 3 (although more funny and inspiring than useful) –

It will take you to a screen to sign in (if you voted last time you are already registered) if not then please sign up – really Intuit has sent me nothing = it is a useful site especially if you are in business.

if you have any questions email me at – new email dorothy@piggybackbooks or text 562 234 1423

THANK YOU SO MUCH
