Make 2012 award winning!

2012 sees me now officially going solo … no longer Networking Mummies just little old me!!  I’m looking forward to having time again to plough into Charlie Moo’s which has been a wee bit neglected, as it plods along nicely but this year I want to inject some magic 🙂 I’ve lots of ideas for Moo branded stock so must crack on with that!

So what a great way to start my journey but with the announcement of the Mumpreneur 100 list!

The list is complied by Mumpreneur UK  by whittling down 1,000’s of nominated business mums.  I am so pleased to have made this list – such a great way to start 2012!

If your thinking about entering an award in 2012 then check out my hints and tips.

Here are some awards taking place in the next few months – remember you have to be in it to win it!

  • Party Plan Guru Awards – this closes on the 17th January 2012
  • Shell LiveWire 
  • Venus Awards in Dorset & Southampton
  • MumpreneurUK Website Awards 
  • Entrepreneur of the Year Award – Ernst&Young

    They look like some great awards to be entering. We are looking forward to announcing our shortlist for our business awards shortly.

    I would like to see more business mums have the confidence to nominate themselves though .. that area of confidence does seem to be distinctly lacking ….

    I’m replying on my phone as little man is on my pc! I’ve been lucky enough to win and be shortlisted for awards and it’s amazing. Do wish others had the confidence to enter. Even completing the applications forms makes you evaluate your business and makes you think how far you have come. Really recommend people do enter them. It’s also great publicity for your business. Great post Joanne.

      Ladies you are both so right there is something very English about business mums not being able to shout from the roof tops ‘hey look at me I’m great’ for this quality I thank my time as a teenager in an American school!! American’s are much better at selling themselves!

      Ally exciting can’t wait to see the list I’m sure there are some amazing business mums on it!

      2012 Baby!

    I am really going to make an effort this year to enter awards, I’m not eligible to enter everything as I’m outside the UK but I need to look harder for the ones I can!

    Your list is really useful Joanne as I never really know where to look and only really hear about awards once the short lists have been announced.

    This year I *will* enter an award…

    I’ve submitted my website to the MumpreneurUK websites so fingers crossed 🙂
