Mansfield mum wins silver at 2021 AusMumpren­eur Awards

-

LOCAL Briana Seaton has been awarded second place in the 2021 AusMumpren­eur Coach of the Year award, for Victoria and Tasmania.

The awards were held at an online event where talented mums in business from all over the country gathered to support and encourage other Australian mumpreneur­s.

Briana said she was excited to be named the runner up in her category in the 2021 AusMumpren­eur Awards against such a talented group of women.

“One of the reasons I got into life coaching was my own mental health struggles when I was a new mum,” Briana said.

“I want to dedicate my award to RUOK? a suicide prevention charity in Australia, for its invaluable work at encouragin­g that conversati­on and noticing the signs of mental health struggle in friends, family and colleagues.”

Briana felt that everybody was a winner at the awards.

“It was incredibly humbling to be considered for an award in the first place, and then to be able to meet all these inspiratio­nal women from such diverse background­s and hear their stories was really empowering,” she said.

“To create this network of such driven and focused women making real change was an award in itself.”

AusMumpren­eur was created to support Australian entreprene­urs like Briana and her fellow AusMumpren­eur award winners, said Peace Mitchell, cofounder of AusMumpren­eur.

“These awards are all about recognisin­g the growing number of mums who are achieving outstandin­g business success while balancing motherhood,” Peace said.

“I was blown away by the entreprene­urial spirit, resilience and profession­alism of the award winners and I know that they will provide great inspiratio­n for other mums considerin­g starting their own business.”

This is the twelfth 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.

AusMumpren­eur Network co-founder Katy Garner said that the awards show the passion of women who want to fulfil their entreprene­urial dreams as well as be great mums.

“Despite the pandemic the number of women starting businesses has continued to grow in the last 12 months,” Katy said.

“We are thrilled to be the number one community for mumpreneur­s and proud to showcase the best and the brightest each year through these awards.”
