This is the ninth year the AusMumpreneur Awards have run, with the business mum community growing at lightning speed as mothers look for opportunities to join the ranks of small business owners in search of more flexibility, financial freedom and family time. AusMumpreneur was created to support Australian entrepreneurs like Julia Christie and her fellow AusMumpreneur Award winners, Peace Mitchell, cofounder of AusMumpreneur said. “These awards are all about recognising the growing number of mums who are achieving outstanding business success while balancing motherhood. I was blown away by the entrepreneurial spirit, resilience and professionalism of the award winners and I know that they will provide great inspiration for other mums considering starting their own business,” Peace said.
AusMumpreneur Network co-founder Katy Garner said, “The awards show the passion of women who want to fulfil their entrepreneurial dreams as well as be great mums. The number of women starting businesses has continued to grow in the last 12 months! Of the 668,670 women operating a small business in Australia currently, a total of 47% are mums with children at home. We are thrilled to be the number one community for Mumpreneurs and proud to showcase the best and the brightest each year through these awards.” “We are delighted that Julia Christie has won this award, she has created an outstanding business and is an inspirational role model and ambassador for mums in business everywhere. We wish her and all our amazing Ausmumpreneur Award winners every success in the coming year,” co-founder Peace Mitchell said.
