2021 Global Business Mothers Awards

The Global Business Mothers Awards recognise the best and brightest mothers in business globally, acknowledging success in business & innovation.

These awards are all about supporting mothers in business, providing a unique opportunity for women from all over the world to come together to promote their business, connect with fellow mothers in business and celebrate their business success.

Beginning in Australia as the AusMumpreneur Awards, now in it’s 12th year, we are now excited to be opening the awards to a global community.

Covid-19 has affected the lives of mothers everywhere with so many mothers working, home-schooling and caring for others and we believe there has never been a more important time to recognise, acknowledge and celebrate the efforts and achievements of mothers in business around the world. We are excited to now be creating a global community of women that support each other, cheer each other on and lift each other up.

Previous winners and finalists have been featured in international and national media including Forbes, CNBC, The Today Show, and Cosmopolitan  since winning these award

So is it your time to shine?

Hi we’re Peace Mitchell and Katy Garner and if you haven’t already guessed we’re passionate about supporting women. We believe that to change the world we simply need to begin by helping women. When women are well and happy they can care for their families, when families are well and happy that flows on to their communities and when communities are well and happy that flows on to help whole nations!

Investing in women has the potential to improve the outcomes for education, mental health, physical health and social wellbeing for now and for the future.

This idea was what inspired us to create The Business Mothers Network, an online community for mothers in business, which supports, elevates, celebrates, represents and inspires the thousands of women who have created their own businesses that work around their family life.

We love what we do and we’ve been featured in national and international media including, CNBC, 7news, The Today Show, Sunrise, Today Tonight, Cosmopolitan, The Herald Sun, The Australian and hundreds of other publications.

Together we’ve written numerous books including ‘Back Yourself’, ‘How to create your own successful and profitable business from home’, The 7 secrets to standing out and What I wish I knew before I became a mother.

We’ve travelled all over world working with women in business and helping them to develop their business at our conferences and live events.

We’re passionate about being a voice for women and have been active in advocating for more recognition of the work of Australia’s mums in business with State and Federal politicians, to encourage more funding and support for women in business. We’ve been pivotal in changing local government legislation, calling for a national conversation and thanks to our lobbying the Queensland Government recently announced $1 Million in support for home-based business owners.

But most importantly we are mothers. We have 7 children between us and are living proof that you can make business and family work. We understand the challenges women face as mothers starting new businesses and are passionate about ensuring women feel supported to find success through our online community, business school and events.
