I’m so excited to announce that I have been nominated for the Geelong Small Business Awards 2017, in the category of Rising Star and Social Media Influencer.
My nomination means that I have been recognised as a local business that’s making an outstanding impact on the Geelong community, with the Awards being based on things like contribution to the community, innovation and collaboration.
To be selected to enter, was a huge thrill and honour for me as I have been working so hard to make my blog get recognised even if just a little.  I literally start working on it  from the moment I get up in the morning, on/off throughout the day (in-between report writing at my full-time during the day job –shhhhhhhhhhh! Don’t tell anyone! wink, wink) ), during my lunch break and again, when I come home after making hubby and my fur babies their dinner, until I hit my pillow on the bed. And yet still, thoughts and ideas are constantly running through my head while I’ trying to fall asleep.
I practically live and breathe this blog. I want to make it a huge success and take it to the very next level of making it my only full time job that I can work from home doing exactly what I love and am passionate about.
Regardless whether if I win or not, just to be nominated and be recognised in my beautiful home town of Geelong (which I have always been so proud to live in and be from), is a dream come true and would be completely mind blowing. I am completely and utterly so grateful to have been considered and nominated.
Thank you to all who have supported and encouraged me on my journey so far. I am so proud to be a part of Geelong’s supportive small business community and an event that’s encouraging it to thrive!
Wish me luck! The awards ceremony is on the 23rd March 2017.
