Exciting opportunity for business owners

iVillage has teamed up with American Express for an exciting venture.

The goal is to spotlight small businesses and give them the opportunity to tell their story -- and also the chance to win $100,000 in grant money as well as marketing support. Small businesses can submit their own information or be nominated by a supporter -- and visitors have the chance to spotlight small businesses by reading their story and "endorsing" them by clicking the Shine a Light button on their profiles within the site (sort of like a "thumbs up"). We also have a message board where Shine a Light visitors and participants can share their tips and advice.

Shine a Light on Small Business message board: http://messageboards.ivillage.com/iv-ivamexshine


I would love to see members of this board participate in this exciting opportunity.
