A reply that I received from my last blog post regarding QuickBooks Simple Start was from Jared at Intuit – Thanks for contacting me Jared!…I spoke with him this morning regarding this Just Start Campaign…seems really cool, anyway, I told him I would plug it for him and will also enter myself if I’m eligible.
Grand Prize is $40,000 + $10,000 in expert consulting
The stats Jared sent me regarding a survey they had an outside company do for them was intriguing to me…I will post a few of them here…if you’d like a copy of the word doc that he sent me, I’d be happy to e-mail it to you, just let me know.
Intuit recently surveyed 1000 Americans between the ages
of 25 and 55 to gather insight into the entrepreneurial spirit of the country
and found the following:
- 72 percent dream of starting their own business.
- 84 percent think that if they started their own
business, they would be more passionate about their work.
- 67 percent contemplate resigning on a regular basis.
