How it felt to be commended at the Croydon Business Awards
When I heard the news I had been short listed for FSB (Federation for small businesses) in the category- real life the entrepreneur of the year, I was thoroughly excited.
On my first short list interview, I was so much more nervous than I thought I would be! I had no idea of the questions that I would be asked I just hoped that the judges would see how passionate I am about my business and so see through my nerves. I think I may have gabbled slightly with my enthusiasm!
Sharing in their success.
I was lucky to be on a fabulous table with the ladies from //www.jurysinns.com/about_us/awards and Saint Cyprians Greek Orthodox school and also my friend Hazel who runs http://www.pawsplaza.co.uk An online pet store.
We all really cheered each other on, which made it even more fun and we was definitely the loudest table there, Simon Thomas the presenter from Sky Sports News made a few comments about “table 11” Ha! Ha!
We all had a lovely meal and enjoyed everyone collecting their awards.
After the Awards ceremony. I was fortunate to meet the judges that had personally judged me in the finals and they were very encouraging, and said I presented myself and my salon JAM Hair well.
Maud from the www.bestofcroydon.co.uk was there, showing off her baby bump (well actually plural baby bump), she looked amazing and definitely glowing.
Also as a guest was Lorenzo from H&L Resources , a fantastic performance coach. Lorenzo is positive and motivating which also works well with his other business as a fitness Personal Trainer!
I was introduced to Mr Jeremy Frost the sponsor for the real life entrepreneur category www.fsb.org.uk
