What a bunch of Babes

6 Jul

Yesterday I graduated.  It wasn’t from University or even TAFE.  I don’t feel like I’ve had to slog and work hard to earn this certificate, though, mind you I have probably worked harder for this certificate in a short amount of time than any other I have earnt.  Yesterday I became a fully fledged Bizness Babe.  I have a certificate to prove it!

My Bizness Babes Certificate

I know I have blogged about Bizness Babes.  I have told everyone I can about how wonderful the program was for me.  I’ve recommended it to so many people.  I feel a bit like Katy Perry on the Proactiv ad.  I know the secret – here it is, give it a go!

Bizness Babes is a business development program developed and delivered specifically for mums.  In their own words

We began in 2006 with a vision to ignite the entrepreneurial spirit of mothers. Women who don’t have access to mainstream business education. Women who dream to succeed.

In March this year a group of 15 very lucky Mums, who I know I’m very lucky to now call friends, started our very steep learning curve and personal leap of faith.  We dived into the deep end of small business development and with the help of Chrissy, Vickie and Emma, plus a cast of very talented and inspirational guest appearances we’re all slowly surfacing to take our first big deep business breaths.

While I said I don’t feel like have worked hard to receive this certificate, I know that I have.  It has’t felt like work it has been fun, and I mean FUN!  I have finally found a niche for myself and a direction to head.  I have built so much self esteem and confidence it is ridiculous.  I have always thought that I could achieve anything I tried, but now I know it.  The best part is I’m not afraid to overcome the failures I’m sure I’m going to hit while I’m trying to get there.

So, to my fellow Bizness Babes, here’s to us, our families, our businesses and to our certain success!  To the rest of you, please check out the Bizness Babes website, support some BB businesses, support the program, and if you have a little seed of a business idea put in an application – it might just change your life!

In the meantime please check out these baby businesses, these are my fellow Bizness Babes graduates and their businesses that have benefited from the Bizness Babes training.

      Ahhh… you’ve come to the right place for plant questions… Yes, it is a very fancy purple cabbage – it’s one of the very unique looking ornamental cabbages – great in the garden or in a bunch!!
