The MAXIFY Mentors will create editorial and social media content and conversation relevant to Small Business Owners as part of the MAXIFY Mentors team. The campaign will be divided into two phases, starting with a call for contest submissions which will run July 15 through August 31 and will be followed by identification of the winners in September. In order to be considered, business owners with an active Facebook or Twitter account will have to post about a particularly difficult challenge they face as business owner using the hashtag #MAXIFYContest and tag one of the mentors on the MAXIFY Mentors team. Posts may include photos that illustrate the challenge being described.
Seven runners up will receive MAXIFY Prize Packs, and one grand prize winner will spend a one-on-one business consultation session with the MAXIFY MENTORS ‘Brand Ambassador’ Barbara Corcoran– as well as appear in a Canon-sponsored YouTube video short about their small business. This video will be posted on the CanonUSA YouTube
channel and distributed as targeted pre-roll across the network.

Barbara Corcoran’s credits include straight D’s in high school and college and 20 jobs by the time she turned 23. It was her next job that would make her one of the most successful entrepreneurs in the country: She borrowed $1,000 and quit her job as a waitress to start a tiny real estate company in New York City. Over the next 25 years Barbara would parlay that $1,000 loan into a $5 billion real estate business building the largest and best known brand in the business.
Corcoran is the author of the best seller Shark Tales, how I turned $1000 into a billion dollar business!
