I was able to mention these winners in the quick interview:

I wish I could have mentioned more of you, but not to worry, we plan to “spread the love” in upcoming media opportunities!

This kind of coverage is inspiring winners to send us emails like this one from Haralee Weintraub, winner in our Boomers Back in Business category in this year’s ranking:

 Hi Rich,

Well finally I have time because I have been so busy to tell you how winning the Boomer Back in Business Category has impacted my company. In one word FANTASTIC! Since I am e-retail it could not have come at a better time, that being the Holiday season. When the story of the winners went to the MSN home page, orders were coming in on line like crazy. The phone rang with questions and we were wonderfully busy. Many men, more than normal, ordered my product for their wives and girlfriends because they read about me. I could not be happier. It is truly an honor to have this honor, which I am working on incorporating into my email signature.

Sincerely Cool,


Haralee Weintraub

Onward, home business heroes!!!! and Congrats again!

More press to come in the days ahead!
