Wow. There's a bit of excitement in the Fi & Becs world this Friday as we've just found out that we are Finalists for the National Mumpreneur Awards!
Being two working mums (Fi has two small people aged four and seven and Becs has a little boy aged two) we are totally delighted to have been chosen from over 3,000 nominations to be part of the final line-up for the 'Boost' Award!
Here is what the Mumpreneur website says about the Boost Award:
"The Boost Award is open to businesses who can demonstrate high growth. Our judges will be looking for businesses that bucked the trend during the recession and expanded their market, product range, business size or anything else that you think demonstrates extraordinary growth."
As well as being shortlisted for the Boost category, Becs is also in with a chance of winning the title of 'The Inspirational Business Mum 2015' (hah!) which is apparently awarded to the mum "who is an inspiration to all women in business"... How exciting is that!
More about the Mumpreneur Awards
The Mumpreneur Awards is an annual ceremony aimed at celebrating parents throughout the UK who manage the difficult task of juggling business with family life.
Judging our entry will be a panel of top entrepreneurs but we'll have to wait until 14th November, when the winners will be announced at The Mumpreneur Conference and Awards, being held at the Heart of England Center in Warwickshire.
