ADP is calling on America’s small business owners to share their lessons with the nation. From May 1 to June 17, small business owners will have the unique chance to share their best advice with the community. With “Grit & Wisdom – Advice from America’s Hard-Working Small Businesses,” you will have the forum to answer key questions, such as:

  • What advice would you give other small businesses both established and just starting up?
  • What have you learned that would help other small companies?
  • What have been your successes and how did you achieve them? What were your mistakes and what did you learn from them?
  • What do you wish someone said to you when you started out?

Plus, advice on any aspect of starting and growing a business, from hiring and retaining employees to financial management, customer service, and vendor relationships, are welcome.

Contest Details and Prizes

Small business owners can submit their most impactful pieces of advice using 75 words or fewer. Winners will be selected based on the value, originality, and applicability of their advice to other small businesses.

The grand prize includes a business prize pack valued at $5,000 and a year of free ADP payroll services. Two first-place winners will receive business prize packs worth $2,500 each along with the same payroll service offer. Five second-place winners will get $1,000 worth of business equipment and free payroll service for a year. In addition, ADP will award 100 semi-finalists $500 prepaid debit cards to use at their discretion.

Eligibility and How to Enter

Participants must be legal residents of the 50 U.S. states or the District of Columbia, aged 18 or older, who own or are employed by a small business with a maximum of 100 employees. Entrants do not need to be current ADP clients to participate or win.

Why Enter?

ADP’s “Grit & Wisdom” contest is designed to celebrate the collective wisdom of America’s small businesses, underscoring the importance of learning from each other’s experiences. While winners will undoubtedly benefit from the monetary prizes, they also will be featured in ADP’s fall 2024 “Grit & Wisdom” campaign, bringing their stories of endurance and successes front and center.
