Just a quick note to let you all know that I have been chosen as a finalist in the Network Limerick Ireland Regional Business Awards in the Emerging Business Category! It took the whole bank holiday weekend for the news to sink in. When I got the email I spent the day going back to my phone to see if the email was still there.
When I entered the competition, it was as a business exercise, I didn't expect to get anywhere and I thought filling out the application would help me to focus my ideas about my business and myself as a business woman, and it certainly did that. My goal was to make the short list and now that I have done that, anything else will be icing on the cake, and I do love cake.
But that isn't to say that I am not ambitious, I've had a taste of the cake now and I want more. If it doesn't happen for me this year, I'm more encouraged to grow my business and see where Best Copy takes me, or where I take it!
I have to say a huge thank you to my friends and family for helping to get me here, and for the businesses, colleagues, and clients that supported me: I wouldn't be here without you.
