An award for our environment

What a busy few weeks it has been!
Initially, I was so chuffed to hear that Babyjo had been nominated for an Award at the upcoming Connect2Mums AusMumpreneur Awards to be held in Brisbane on the 31st July.

I was then even more excited to find that we are now a finalist (with 4 others) in the category of "Best Eco Friendly Business". The other finalists are just amazing, each with their own fantastic business that has a strong focus on being eco friendly and environmentally responsible/aware. You can read more about them here at Connect2Mums.
I love the fact that there is a business award for this category, and regardless of the outcome, our world is still better off for the changes that we are all striving to make - Every bit counts!

So.......I have my plane tickets ready (get me out of this chilly Melbourne weather!) and a lovely "frock" ready for the evening, and I am so looking forward to meeting so many fabulous business owners and amazingly talented "Mumpreneurs".

The AusMumpreneur Awards celebrate and recognize those achieving success in the industry, in areas such as business, product development, services and innovation in both online and bricks and mortar businesses from around Australia.

In conjunction with a super 3 day conference, the AusMumpreneur Awards take place at a glamourous Awards dinner at Rydges, Southbank, Brisbane on Saturday 31 July. These awards are the only events of their kind in Australia and will be officially opened by Hon Karen Struthers MP the Minister for Women.

Connect2mums provides a safe and supportive environment for women in online businesses to get together and share information, network and gain support. The site provides members with relevant information and opportunities to interact and socialise with other mums across Australia and New Zealand. Friday night live chats, newsletters, product reviews, real-life events, competitions and articles are just some of the ways women get connected at Connect2mums.
