I have been sweeping just since May. My husband and I own Southern Oaks Flooring in Nashville, TN. I saw the Inc. Magazine "Right Van for the Job Contest" here just a couple of weeks into entering sweepstakes. I immediately wrote the 200 word essay and uploaded a picture of our work truck. I was notified a few weeks ago that I'm one of the four finalists!


They sent a videographer out to shoot the videos that will go up for public voting. Whoever has the most votes wins a 2017 Mercedes Sprinter!!! All the finalists receive $5000 and a trip to the JW Marriott Resort and Spa in Palm Springs to attend the Inc. 5000 Conference. The winner will be revealed at a black tie gala there.


I'm so excited!!! I hadn't even told my husband I had entered, so he thought it was a joke when I called him to tell him we were finalists! I did receive express permission from the magazine to now share the news "with anyone we want." 


I'm not sure of the best ways to get people to vote...I actually hate the idea of public voting, but it is what it is. I'm excited, all the same.
