Although I am a very recent Awards winner, the award for Best Home-Based Business is already having a big impact on my South West based PR business and the way it is regarded. Not only has entering for the Award and talking to the excellent judges resulted in me thinking very carefully about my business model, the future of my business, and how to grow it, but it has also resulted in some excellent coverage across social media and in traditional media outlets plus a significant raising of my profile amongst existing clients as well as future prospects.
Winning an Award and being recognised in front of your peers is a really huge morale boost and makes the last five years really worthwhile. When I first decided to set up my PR business in 2009 there were not that many women-led businesses around and there was always that little voice of self-doubt in the back of my head, asking me why others would put their faith in a business that I had set up! Being considered for a Venus Award and then actually winning it is going to extinguish that voice once and for all.
Do not hesitate â€“ be brave and put yourself forward as a contender!
The Venus Awards are growing and spreading across the UK. By entering it is going to help you consider where your business is going, what it is has already achieved and who is standing by your side.
