brilliant business mums awards… time to enter

Basic CMYK

The Motivating Mum Brilliant Biz Mum Awards are halfway through and doing fab – but waiting for your nomination!! Entries are only accepted until March 15, 11.59pm so you had better get cracking..

I’m sure I have no need to point out why doing such a thing is a good one to do.
Apart from being a great positioning piece, it will also open up new frontiers that you have not yet been exposed to…

Nominations are in these areas:

  • Best Photo for Business (open to amateur and professional – it’s not so much technical as heart-based),
  • Best Plan of Attack (who has a great business plan, marketing plan etc and knows where they are going and sticking to it!),
  • Most out of the Box Marketing Campaign (who’s great at marketing their biz),
  • Best not-for-profit mum (this can be a mum who runs a not-for-profit or who has just hosted a not-for-profit event),
  • Best Budgeter (who does an amazing job of managing their budget for business) and,
  • Best Written Piece (non-blog) (who has written an article or press release that reads really well).

Link to info on the Awards is:

I would normally say feel free to ask me to nominate you, but in this case I am a judge in one of the categories so I wouldn’t want to be looking to pervert the cause of justice! If you feel a little uncomfortable nominating yourself, then ask your partner, friend, parent, lover to do it.

Remember, entries close March 15 with announcements April 1.

Good luck!

How Daughter Made Me the Proudest Parent in the World This Morning…

To clarify, and to her credit, I’m always proud BUT this morning in particular took the cake! After being awarded the “gun” trophy for mixed softball at her school awards, we settled back to listen to the rest of the proceedings.

The President and the Secretary of the local U3A (University of the Third Age – where their 104 year-old member continues next year in learning more about Shakespeare!) stood at the podium to present the Personal Excellence Award for a teacher-voted boy and girl. They then went on to explain that by selling second-hand books at our schools Thursday market, they raise money to give out as part of this award. How good are they? honestly…

Daughter’s name is the chosen girl name read out. Well you could have knocked me down with a feather! Not only did she receive a framed certificate which reads:
“Personal Excellence Award
This certificate is awarded for her pursuit of excellence in all areas of school life”

she also collected a humbling cheque of $350.

Good on her. And this is only day one of Grade 6 Graduation week.
What a girl, enough to make any Mother proud.
