Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, entrepreneurs! MyCorporation is celebrating with their #ILoveMyBusiness contest! To enter, all you have to do is submit a photo showcasing why you love your business to firstname.lastname@example.org along with a description of what’s going on in the photo in 25 words or less, the name of your business, and your company URL for a chance to win $500.
We’re so excited to read about all the ways you love your business!
To help get into the spirit of things, we asked our small business experts what they love about their business. Here’s what they had to say:
1.“I’m building a productivity tool, and I love it because it solves problems I face myself daily. Not only does that make it much easier to understand and be invested in, it also means that I get the satisfaction of seeing the benefits and power of it directly reflected every day in my own work.” –Tim Perry, Build Focus (more…)
People become entrepreneurs for a variety of reasons- they can’t stand the corporate lifestyle, they want to become the master of their own destiny, or they’ve had a dream of opening a business for as long as they can remember. People stay entrepreneurs because they love what they do.
In celebration of Valentine’s Day, we want to see all the ways you love your business. And we’re giving away $500 to one lucky winner through our “#ILoveMyBusiness” photo contest!
Entering is simple. Submit a photo showcasing why you love your business to email@example.com along with a description of what’s going on in the photo in 25 words or less, the name of your business, and your company URL. The more creative the photo is, the better – we really want to see the love in the photo!
Deadline for submissions is February 29th, and the winner will be emailed March 1st, so start snapping photos now to enter in! Limit one picture per entry applicant. For more information on the contest, rules, and additional questions, visit our website at contest.mycorporation.com.
Good luck, entrepreneurs! We’re excited to see all the ways you love your business!
With 2015 on the cusp of wrapping up, I’ve been reflecting back on the last six years of owning MyCorporation. It’s been a long road, but we wouldn’t be where we are today (thriving!) if we hadn’t experienced each and every twist and turn. It all started back in 2004 when I joined the MyCorporation team, not as the CEO but as the vice president of legal affairs. With years in law school and some time in a law firm partnership, I was happy to be applying my legal knowledge in an area that interested me. In 2005, the business was acquired by Intuit. The acquisition brought about a much-needed new perspective on running MyCorporation, but there was still untapped potential that I was wishing I could get my hands on. Then, finally, in 2009 I purchased the division. And now here we are- six full years later! (more…)
Happy New Year! 2014 was an awesome year full of growth and renewal here at MyCorp. It was also the best year our blog has ever had! And that’s largely thanks to the slew of guest-posters and small business experts who have been kind enough to contribute. While we could spend hours going over our favorite posts of 2014, we thought our time might be better spent highlighting some of the top posts from this last year.

When you think of Halloween, you typically think about pumpkins, costumes, cotton cob webs, parties, and the mass amounts of candy being consumed. Though there’s another side to Halloween we often don’t think about: the numbers behind the whole operation! Have you ever wondered just what the percentage of Halloween celebrators visit haunted houses each year? Or how about just how much money is spent on candy in honor of the holiday?
In “Spooktacular Business Stats: Halloween by the Numbers” we break down Halloween by the statistics that make this holiday what it is! (more…)
Over half of the people in the world are women. There are so many women who I admire, including my two grandmothers, my teacher, and my aunts. There is one special woman who I admire most. That special woman is my mom, Deborah Sweeney. Some of the reasons I admire my mom include her intelligence, her kindness, her hard work and her great attitude.
My mom is a very smart person. She helps me with my homework when I am having trouble with it. My mom also helps me with my after school class, Kumon. Even though the questions that she helps with are hard, she makes it look easy. My mom also went to great colleges including UC Irvine and Pepperdine and she owns a big company.

Here we are in week four of the Magical Month of MyCorp! We had a good run this year, filled with lots of baked goods, champagne, toy-making, laughs, and decorating on decorating! And this week, we finished up strong.
On Monday we unwrapped, swapped, and bartered to find our perfect presents during the gift exchange.
We named Thursday Customer Appreciation Day (though for MyCorp that’s an every day celebration on our end!) and here is our own sales rep Tracy on the phone with a customer chatting it up.
And today we’re being treated with a catered lunch to celebrate such a fun, festive month.
Be sure to check out our Facebook page to follow along with us as we ring in the New Year next week!
I can’t believe there’s only a little over a week left of this magical month! But we’ve been making the most of this month – check out what our office was up to during the third week of the Magical Month of MyCorp!
We started the week off at our very own MyCreameration Ice Creamery, LLC with some yummy homemade ice cream!
