Can you guess it?
Nope, it’s not Valentine’s Day. Not St. Patty’s Day. Okay, I’ll give you a little hint. It’s not a holiday, but it really ought to be for how hard all mom entrepreneurs work. We NEED a day off without any interruption.
I guess you can tell I’m a true entrepreneur at heart when my most favorite time of year involves one of my businesses, The Mom-e Club, a few months of planning my signature event (now in year 3, woohoo!) and revolves around recognizing so many deserving mom entrepreneurs for their talents and achievements.
Yep, you guessed right.
It’s The Mom-e Club’s Annual Mom Entrepreneur Celebration!
Every year when February settles in, I get uber excited knowing that in exactly three months (May 10, 2012 right before Mother’s Day weekend), I get to stand up on stage with 10 fabulous women, crown (tiara, sash, roses and all) and award our next Mom Entrepreneur of the Year.
Our 2010 top 10 finalists and I (I'm the short one in the middle.)
I just love watching the videos of real women who share their stories with the world; who aim to inspire others to take that leap of faith; who stand up after experiencing failure and tell the world, “Hey, I’m not done until I say I’m done!” (Gees, just writing that makes me feel a surge of motivation inside.)
If you are a mom entrepreneur, then I encourage you, “PLEASE, DON’T HOLD BACK!”
This is your year to shine.
Let us help you spread your message that you are, without a doubt, a mom entrepreneur that DESERVES to be recognized by her own family, friends, and even complete strangers for all the wonderful things you do!
So, how do you spread that message?
Easy. By investing three minutes in yourself and submitting a video entry before our March 26 deadline. That’s it! No catches, no gimmicks, just three minutes of your time.
Not sure what to say? Just speak from the heart. Tell us why you love being a mom entrepreneur and wouldn’t trade it for anything else. Tell us how you got where you are and where you plan on going. Introduce us to your kids, the hubby, your dog, your goldfish. Whatever you like. It’s about being the real you.
Shannon Rozas, our 2011 Mom Entrepreneur of the Year
Still not certain you can do it? Watch our 2011 Mom Entrepreneur of the Year finalists and our lovely winner, Shannon Rozas, share their stories of hope, fear, failure, triumph, and success!
Still not convinced this award has your name on it? Well, then I’m guessing this blog post didn’t do justice, and you’ll now have exactly one year and three months to put together your video entry for 2013. No pressure though. We’ll accept entries next year, in 2014, in 2015, you get the idea.
To enter our 2012 Mom Entrepreneur of the Year contest, which I certainly hope you do as it’s open to all mom entrepreneurs nationwide, check out the contest details here.
Best of luck to you!
We announce our winner the evening of May 10, 2012 at the Ultra Luxe Lounge in Scottsdale, Arizona and invite you to join us for this truly unique, over-the-top, inspiring, can’t touch this, happy tears, joyful, event! (And for the record, that’s what the husbands in the audience have to say!)
See you then!
