Nicola Le Lievre from Augustine Heights, owner of intherapy – Ethical Beauty in Red Hill has been named Hair & Beauty Award runner up.
The awards were held online via Zoom where thousands of talented mums in business from all over the country tuned in to the livestream to support and encourage other Australian mumpreneurs.
Nicola said she was excited to win silver in her category in the 2020 AusMumpreneur Awards in such a challenging time. Nicola says: “I feel so proud and humbled to be runner up, it was so special to have friends and family watch the livestream with me.”
“I am so honoured to be amongst such empowering Australian mums in business and have had the opportunity to form such incredible business connections and lifelong friendships.”
The AusMumpreneur Awards are presented by The Women’s Business School and were created to inspire, celebrate, and provide a community for Australian entrepreneurs, like Nicola. Now more than ever Australian women need inspirational role models and a safe and supportive space to connect online, Peace Mitchell, cofounder of The Women’s Business School said.
“These awards are all about recognising the growing number of mums who are achieving outstanding business success while balancing motherhood, states Mitchell. “I was blown away by the courage, resilience and entrepreneurial spirit of the award winners and I know that they will provide great inspiration for other women considering starting their own business.”
This is the eleventh 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.
The Women’s Business School co-founder Katy Garner adds: “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 2020! Of the 670,000 women operating a small business in Australia currently, around 50 per cent are mums with children at home. We are proud to be the number one community for mumpreneurs and showcasing the best and the brightest each year through these awards.” “We are delighted that Nicola Le Lievre has been acknowledged with 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.”
