BILL RANCIC TEAMS UP WITH INTUIT QUICKBOOKS TO HELP SMALL BUSINESSES SUCCEED & TO ANNOUNCE TOP FINALISTS OF A BIG GAME CONTEST  What makes a small business successful?

Despite this, one in two small businesses fail in the first five years, and two of three fail in the first ten. That’s why entrepreneur Bill Rancic is teaming with Intuit QuickBooks to provide help, encouragement and a formula for success for small businesses. On November 13th, Rancic will discuss an exciting campaign designed to show small business owners how to achieve their goals. He’ll also cite some great examples of several small businesses that were chosen from thousands who entered and are finalists in a special contest to win a free 30-second ad worth millions that will air during the biggest game of the year.
