Calling ALL Military Spouses with Home-Based Businesses

Hi everyone. If you are a military spouse with a home-based business or know other military spouses with home-based businesses this post is for you.

For the month of April, I would like to blog about my military customers who have a home-based business. Whether it's Cookie Lee, Avon, Mary Kay or a personal business that you have started yourself. Most companies these days (even small ones like mine) have websites and people can purchase from anywhere around the world. So why not support a fellow military spouse. This is just my way of giving back.

I know off the top of my head, several of you do have a HBB, but I do want to respect your privacy. So I WILL NOT post about you/your business unless you personally send me the below information.

If you are interested in the recognition through this blog, this is what I will need from you: your name (first name only is okay), your business name and contact information (even if it's just a website or email contact infomation ) - it's up to you! Also, please send your information to me as soon as you can - I have a feeling I'm going to have a lot business to post about!! Exciting!!

Thank you again for supporting My Military Hero! I look forward to hearing from you soon!!!

Well, I should have known when we started this contest that we couldn't give away just 5 sets. Instead, we decided to give away 11.5 sets - there were too many good entries to narrow down to just 5!!!! A BIG THANK YOU to everyone who has purchased our decals in the past and wrote about how much they LOVE THEM. Also a BIG THANK YOU to everyone who doesn't have a set yet and wrote about how much they would love one! Without further ado, the WINNERS are:

Amy Pater
Margaret St. Andre
Lauren Updike
Crystal Gates
Julie Edrington-Fisher
Trishia Bennett
Jennifer Allen-Porga
Jennifer Butt
Raelynn Zolman-Thorn
Gabby Gagnon
Stacy Elliott {please keep the ice scraper away from your hubby:)}
**Melanie Rodriguez - New Marine Daddy w/cover**:)

Congratulations!!!! Some of you contacted me through email, some through FB and some through my Blog. Please email me your choice of service branch, family members (including hair color), and your full contact information (address & phone number) and I will get them out to you as soon as possible.

The customer response to the contest was overwhelming!!! Rest assured, if you didn't win this time, you will have another chance...we will be holding another contest later in the year.

Information about our products, future promotions & give aways will be announced on our website, Facebook & Blog. If you haven't joined My Military Hero on Facebook or if you are not currently following our Blog, now would be the time!

Thanks again! We have the best customers ever!!!!
