I was so very excited to hear that I had reached the finals of The Best Business Women Awards 2017.
The awards are designed to recognise talented and dedicated female entrepreneurs who not only run successful businesses but in many cases also juggle the needs of their families. These awards help to recognise the achievement of these women across a wide range of business categories and is open to any female business owner UK wide.
I was shortlisted and was a finalist in two categories “Best Online Business” and “Best Retail/Consumer Business.
Debbie Gilbert, organiser of The Best Business Women Awards said ‘We were delighted with the number of entries this year, which came in from all over the UK. This is a tough competition judged by business experts. To be a finalist is a major achievement. Finalists have been selected for their business acumen, determination, creativity and tenacity. Over 80% of start-ups fail in the first 3 years and all our finalists are all shining examples of being successful entrepreneurs who have proved their success to our judges.
Its such a privilege to be selected I was chosen from hundreds of entries from inspiring women across the UK. My daughter is right, I have her to thank
for these nominations, because if she hadn’t thumb sucked I would not have started the business.
The gala final of The Best Business Women Awards took place on 12th October 2017 at Tewin Bury Farm, Welwyn, Hertfordshire. Whilst I didn’t win I was incredibly proud to be part of the evening and met so many inspiring women.
Will try again next year!!
