I am a finalist for The Saleswoman Award at The Mumpreneur Awards 2010!

I am proud to announce I am a finalist for The Saleswoman Award at The Mumpreneur Awards 2010!

I was so surprised about this that I had to double check that they had the right person! Once they assured me it was correct I realised that I am actually a good saleswoman, I never thought of myself as a saleswoman before but as I run my business on my own I'm actually a lot of things!

The award ceremony is on the 18th September and two of the judges are people I like. One judge on the panel is Rachel Elnaugh who is one of the original Dragons from Dragon's Den which I would like to add I so much prefered Rachel than Deborah Meaden who is currently on the show.
Deborah might be a nice person in real life but I don't like the way she is on the show. I don't think you need to be so mean and aggressive in business but I suppose it makes it more interesting for the show. I wish they would bring back Rachel and have at least two Dragon's that are women!

The second judge that I love is Jo Cameron from The Apprentice. She was so funny on the show and such a nice person. This is what is said about Jo "In 2006 she beat off 10,000 other hopefuls to secure her place in the hugely successful TV show The Apprentice. She was the most written about and the most memorable candidate. What made her famous was her sincerity, her passion and her ability to stand up for what she believed in. She made so much of an impact that she was commissioned to write the official BBC Apprentice column the following year."

Dragon's Den and The Apprentice are two of my favourite shows. I love to watch shows that are inspiring and they give me the push to succeed even more:)
