Media attention well received by MYB

We recently posted how Mind Your Business CEO Karen Caruso has been selected as the 2011 North Carolina Small Business Person of the Year by the US Small Business Association (SBA). This accolade has not gone unnoticed in the North Carolina region, with the story being picked up by several newspapers. Most recently, the Winston-Salem Chronicle published an article regarding Karen, the award and MYB. To be recognized in this way by such a popular NC newspaper is yet another source of pride for both Karen and the company.

The article begins by stating how “The U.S. Small Business Association (SBA) has named Karen Caruso, CEO of Mind Your Business, Inc. (MYB) the North Carolina Small Business Person of the Year”. It furthermore goes on to tell us who Karen was nominated by, how MYB began and the success the company has achieved.

The recognition that “MYB posted record profits in 2009 and 2010″ certainly does not hide the fact that the SBA award is well deserved. Further on, we are told by the article that the criteria for the award was six-fold: staying power, employee growth, innovativeness of services offered, response to adversity and contributions to the community. Karen has excelled in all of these, as is clear by not only her nomination, but by her success in receiving the award.

Small Business Person of the Year winners from 50 states, the District of Columbia, Puerto Rica and Guam will be converging for the award ceremony 18-20 May in Washington D.C., where a national Small Business Person of the Year will be selected. We at MYB certainly have our fingers crossed for Karen, and we will be sure to let you know the results!]]>
