THE GLOBAL BUSINESS MOTHERS AWARDS ARE ALL ABOUT SUPPORTING AND CELEBRATING MOTHERS IN BUSINESS

Beginning in Australia as the AusMumpreneur Awards, now in it’s 12th year, we are 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 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?

The Global Business Mothers Awards celebrate and acknowledge the outstanding achievements of mothers in business globally.

Why you should enter these awards

When people ask me about why they should enter these awards it’s not the trophies I talk about. It’s the connections that are made, the relationships that develop and the business collaborations that happen in the weeks after. I think we underestimate connection. Yet this is one of the most powerful aspects of business. The friends you make in your business journey are the reason you’ll keep going sometimes. They’re the ones that will help you see a solution when it seems as if there isn’t one. They’re the ones who’ll help you celebrate when things go well! They’re the ones who’ll help pick you up when things go badly. And they’re the ones who are always there to listen no matter what’s going on in your life.
You never know when someone you’ve met will become an important part of your story. This is the real prize you’ll find by being a part of this event. Regardless of whether you win or not the amazing women in this community are some of the kindest, most generous and wonderful people you will meet!
The other thing people tell me they love is the personal development. The opportunity for self reflection from the awards application, and then if you’re a finalist, answering the judging panelists questions are an important opportunity for growth and learning and recognising how far you’ve come in your journey!
If you’ve been waiting to enter, this is it, today is your day, this is your time to step up, to back yourself and to declare to the world that you are ready to claim your success and be proud of your achievements

Why is there an entry fee? The Global Business Mothers Awards are an independent awards event to celebrate Mothers in Business we don’t have a large corporate brand behind us like other awards. The entry fees help to pay our staff for the awards period and the cost towards organising this events. Some business awards cost over $600 to enter, so $125 is a reasonable price for an entry fee. We knew some business owners would feel they couldn’t afford it, but we released that perhaps those people would be better off applying next year or when their business was ready to pay the entry fee.
