AusMumpreneur Awards launch superstar mums in business
The annual Connect2Mums AusMumpreneur Awards will launch another super businesswoman into stardom this September.
AusMumpreneur Awards recognise the achievements of women who have managed to run a successful business and balance work with family life.
The awards acknowledge the achievements of Australia and New Zealand’s best and brightest entrepreneurs in the mumpreneur industry across a wide range of categories.
Amanda Edwards of inviteme has been selected as a finalist in the 2012 AusMumpreneur Awards in the categories of Favourite Boutique and Rising Star.
Inviteme is an online party-ware boutique full of never-ending gorgeousness for your special celebrations. Amanda co-owns and runs inviteme with Simone Norris who is another very highly motivated and driven mother and they have 5 young girls between them.
The 2012 AusMumpreneur Awards presented by connect2mums celebrate and recognize Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business, product development, services and innovation in businesses from Australia and New Zealand. The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.
There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood as Amanda explains, “I love every aspect of our business but what I adore above everything else is creating something from scratch and seeing it out in the market.
There’s also nothing that beats being your own boss. This allows me flexibility to care and spend time with my young (pre-school) girls.”
It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Amanda gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise. “Being a mumpreneur isn’t for the faint-hearted. A corporate background or not, starting a business can be hard.
But the joy and sense of achievement is unparalleled. Learn from your mistakes and use your time wisely, it’s the most precious thing we have. Any mumpreneur will tell you that.”
The AusMumpreneur Conference and AusMumpreneur Awards are a reflection of Connect2Mums commitment to supporting mums.
