Finalist: Most Inspiring and Active Business Girl
Today, I’m so pleased to announce that I have been nominated for my very first award! I am a Finalist for ‘Most Inspiring and Active Business Girl’ in the Business Girls Network Inspire Awards 2018! My category is sponsored by the wonderful Claire from Inspire Hot Yoga in Maidenhead, and it recognises women who
“demonstrate strong leadership qualities, and who are a true role model to other women, and who plays a key role in the Business Girls community.”
This category will also:
“recognise a woman who effects positive change and who provides support and assistance to other women and has the ability to motivate”.
It means a huge amount to me to be nominated in this category, as when I started my business, I wanted to make sure that I could help anyone who approached me, even in a tiny way; and so being recognised for this shows that I have made a good start in achieving my objectives.
However, I wouldn’t be in the wonderful position of being a Finalist without two groups of people, and I wanted to say thank you to both.
Firstly, the group of ladies who form membership of the Business Girls Network. Starting out as self employed nearly a year ago was daunting, but the group have made me feel so welcome. I know I can turn to them whenever I need advice, support or inspiration. They inspire me daily, and hearing that I’ve gone even a little way to inspire and support them is wonderful!
Secondly, I wanted to thank my clients and collaborators. Firstly, Helen Steel (Streamlion Consulting), from whom I have learned a huge amount. Secondly, Stephanie (Summers Photography), and Lizzie (Lizzie Parsons Image Consultancy,) with whom I am collaborating on the super-exciting #BrandYourself2018!
Being a Finalist for this award is amazing in itself, but I’d still love to win. To do so, I need your support! Please share my social media posts or this blog to raise awareness of the Awards and my nomination (use #InspireAwards2018!), and to vote, head to the Business Girls Network website! The winners will be announced on International Women’s Day on 8th March 2018, at the Inspire Conference.
