Did you know that by voting in the Best of SVG you can improve your physical and emotional well-being?

This article is especially for those people who are indifferent about the success of others. Some people have told me that they are just not into Best of SVG; they do not see the value in it.

John Wooden, in one of his quotes, said “Happiness begins where selfishness ends. Give and that is where you find happiness.” We are hoping that Best of SVG will awaken a culture of neighbourliness in our communities, bring back a culture of sociability, care and consideration, instead of the contract culture – you sell, I buy – the end.

Sociologists Christian Smith and Hilary Davidson’s book, The Paradox of Generosity, is considered among the most comprehensive studies of the effects of generosity on the giver. The results confirmed that people in the habit of giving are healthier and happier than those who are not so generous.

It takes less than a minute of your time to nominate someone in the Best of SVG and only a few minutes if you wish to nominate in all one hundred and two (102) categories. The few seconds you give to someone who has served you may be all that is needed to win unprecedented publicity and tangible rewards for years of hard work.

To those asking what’s in it for us: Best of SVG is one of the ways we give back to the community. It affords us the opportunity to build and strengthen our relationship with market leaders. It raises trust and validation among prospects and builds loyalty with our customers. However, the greatest satisfaction for us is hearing people express how the marketing, media coverage and validation have changed the trajectory of their business. So, give a few seconds – Vote Today!
