Go-getter in line for award
Local businesswoman Rhiannon McDonald has been nominated for the 2018 AusMumpreneur Awards — an award designed to celebrate and recognise Australian mums in business.
Mrs McDonald is an accomplished businesswoman, having co-founded an accounting practice, founded a social media and marketing business and coached other business owners and entrepreneurs on organisation and productivity, all while raising a young family.
“My vision is to encourage others to create opportunities and success in their business by organising and focusing on productivity and operations to unlock barriers and accomplish goals,” she said.
“The best thing about being a mumpreneur is I get to work my own hours so I can spend time with my family.”
The whoSOCIAL founder is currently facilitating the Winter Creative Festival alongside two other mumpreneurs: Amanda Viviers and Brooke Whitmore.
The Winter Creative Festival is a series of workshops for local businesswomen to “collaborate and reset in the months of winter”, running until August 12 at the Kent Street Deli.
Dietitian Corrina Michael was the guest speaker at the most recent workshop, which was held on Friday and focused on family nutrition and maintaining a healthy nutritional balance.
The next workshop is tomorrow at 1pm and will focus on building business resilience, featuring guest speaker Brooke Whitmore.
The winners of this year’s AusMumpreneur Awards will be announced on August 31 at a gala night in Melbourne.
Winter Creative Festival organisers Amanda Viviers and Brooke Whitmore were enthralled at dietitian Corrina Michael’s interactive workshop last Friday.
