Since winning Business Mother of the Year I have had a huge amount of coverage of my business in the media. Lots of local papers have written about my baby food cookery school, Iâ€™ve had numerous radio interviews, and I was even asked to be a judge for the BBC Food Awards.
The impact of this on my business has been fantastic. Itâ€™s really raised awareness that the cookery school exists, and resulted in lots of enquiries and bookings.
Off the back of the awards Iâ€™ve also teamed up with a training business to provide training sessions for one-man-band businesses on how to market their business to local media and use social media effectively.
It was a huge surprise to win and find out that more than 800 people had voted for me. Iâ€™ve also met lots of lovely people among the other finalists and winners - weâ€™re already arranging a group night out for the Bristol winners.
Youâ€™ve got nothing to lose by entering Venus Awards, and could end up with an award or at the very least a place on a fantastic night out with loads of like-minded women.
