I've been shortlisted for an Award

Press Release

Issued on 27th February 2012

I've Been Nominated!

I'm delighted to announce that I've have been nominated for the 4th annual Mumsclub Business Mum's Awards as sponsored by MyFamilyClub.

This is a fantastic opportunity for The Blossom Method™ and for me personally and I wanted to share with you how thrilled and honoured I am to receive this nomination. It is an exceptional way to celebrate how far I have come.

The Business Mum Awards have recognised and rewarded those women who have started businesses and achieved success in a short space of time since 2008. Winners have gone on to great success including the ultimate goal for many of them having their products stocked in high street stores and even more exciting in overseas.

Jane Hopkins MBE, founder of MumsClub says, "The nominations this year have been of a very high standard and it has been my pleasure to personally go through them all to create a shortlist to pass to our esteemed judging panel. Starting a business is hard at the best of times, but to do so alongside a growing family makes it so much more demanding. Being nominated by a fellow mum in business is a huge accolade in itself and I hope all those nominated are incredibly proud of themselves."

The judging panel consist of previous Business Mum Award winners and industry professionals.

The 4th annual Mumsclub Business Mums Awards, headline sponsors MyFamilyClub, are being held on International Women's Day on the 8th March. The winners will be invited to an exclusive ceremony to celebrate.
