At the start of February I received a wonderful email...I'd been nominated for a national award! I was so honoured, I'd spent 9 months working hard at setting up my business and someone had noticed! I have to admit I had a wee tear reading my nominee form!
Within a few weeks I received a second email...I'd become a finalist! I'm going to the award ceremony in April at Aston Villa! I couldn't believe it, Networking Mummies Finalist for New Business/Start up!!
I'm absolutely delighted to be recognised and to reach finalist means so much! My business journey so far has been overwhelming and nothing could have prepared me for how much I would have to learn and put into starting up this business. There are 5 wonderful businesses also up for this award, we have all achieved so much to get this far and I'm proud to be recognised alongside them!
Networking Mummies has been a constant support, online and through networking meet ups. I've made some good friends and collaborated to create new business ventures. I think my top tip for new businesses would be to network and Networking Mummies is a fantastic group!
The award ceremony itself is set to raise money for a wonderful charity Meningitis Now. Meningitis Now aims to save lives and rebuild futures by funding research, raising awareness whilst providing support.
So with the awards only 11 sleeps away, I'm super excited!! My husband's suit is off the the dry cleaners and I'm still deciding on shoes...Wish me luck!
