I’m delighted to have made the shortlist for the Forward Ladies Women in Business Awards in the category of Best Home Based Business! The awards recognise and celebrate the achievements of business women across the Yorkshire region. 3 women have been shortlisted for each of 9 categories and announced in the Yorkshire Post today; the winners will be announced at an awards lunch in Leeds on 14th October (a new frock is in order surely?!).
Having built my business up over the last 4 years, and particularly worked on growing and developing it since returning from maternity leave in 2010, it is incredibly rewarding to gain the recognition that just making the shortlist represents. To stand shoulder to shoulder with respected business women from around the region shows that businesses run from home are every bit as professional and valid as the largest corporations.
Watch this space!
