At a time where there seems to be not much other than bad news, I was thrilled to discover that I have been named as a finalist in the 'Most Inspiring Business Person' award category in the National Entrepreneur's Awards.
The award is in recognition of business owners who have a story to inspire others. In my case, this has come about from a time when the business went through a difficult period. The judges felt that what I had achieved to turn the situation from negative to a fantastic positive was worthy of recognition.
Being a business owner is a tough gig. Stress, long hours, financial headaches and a burden of responsibility to help and support others.......sounds a bit like a Business Manager's job then!
Even if I don't win, I am so very proud to be a finalist.
The awards ceremony was meant to be on Monday night but has been postponed due to the.....well you know why. So I will have to wait a little longer to find out if I have been successful. Wish me luck!
