Mums in business are a fascinating bunch – and there are days when I wonder what I’ve gotten myself into, trying to juggle the demands of my Itty Bitty business (which is a one-person operation) as well as the demands of motherhood and a part-time job on top of it all.
But thankfully there’s an online community called Connect2Mums that provides support and encouragement for parents – especially those who’ve made the leap into the business world. It’s a place to network, share ideas, learn and support each other, and on some days it’s a godsend when I’m fighting the battle alone with only my laptop for company.
A few days ago I was thrilled to learn that Itty Bitty Greenie has been named a finalist for the annual AusMumpreneur Awards in the “Eco-Friendly Business” category. The idea that there are other parents who’ve recognized my efforts and also to have a chance to celebrate them among a roomful of other inspiring people is just… awesome!
The awards recognize mums in business across Australia and New Zealand, and are presented at a gala ceremony held in Sydney on August 27. In addition to the main awards categories, there are a number of people’s choice awards – and that’s where YOU come in. Itty Bitty Greenie has been named a finalist in the “Best Boutique / Store” category, and you have a chance to vote for me and also discover some other wonderful mums in business who are doing great things.
