Good News is in the Stars

I am delighted to have been awarded a Silver Star in the Shining Star Awards hosted by Mums Unltd judges!

Outstanding Mumpreneurs who deliver excellent business results whilst balancing their family needs have been recognised in the award programme, The Mums UnLtd Shining Stars. The awards, now in their 3rd Year, were created by Mums UnLtd, a national business networking company that supports Mums to run successful businesses by providing advice, support, and business opportunities. Despite the Corona Virus, many of the finalists have continued to trade or pivote their business.

The key criteria for receiving an award included clearly demonstrating their business knowledge, experience, creativity, commitment to customer care and strong evidence of business achievements.

Local business owner Lou Murphy was awarded a Silver Star alongside 20 other finalists from across the UK.

“I am absolutely delighted to be recognised this year as it’s been a challenge selling my range of Captain Tortue fashions from home during the COVID restrictions. I have had to think on my feet and adapt to selling virtually through Facebook livestreams and Zoom video events. My clients have really enjoyed the outfit inspiration and styling tips I give and have remained loyal throughout.”

Debbie Gilbert, the author of “The Successful Mumpreneur” and founder of Mums UnLtd, said:

“The Shining Star awards” are all about raising the profile of Mumpreneurs who have become the backbone of the UK economy. Currently, little is done to showcase their achievements, and so we are delighted to recognise these amazing women. This year has thrown additional challenges alongside the ones women routinely face, juggling a business with a family. We are delighted to be able to recognise their achievements”.
