What a fabulous surprise to receive an email from NATWEST's, Great British Entrepreneur Awards 2017, saying that I have been shortlisted for an award! I have shortlisted for the High Street Entrpreneur of the Year Award for my brand, Milly J Shoes and shop - All About Shoes.
As the shop has only been open since last November, to receive recognition already is wonderful news.
The judges include James Caan CBE, Haley Parson OBE and many other notable business people. The awards are hosted in November with glitzy ceremonies taking place right across the UK. With despite being based in Norwich, my area will be London.
The judges said of my work:
“Understanding as a teacher and profound life experience are key driving forces within this entrepreneur as she journeys to fulfil her artistic potential. Milly J Shoes brings unprecedented creativity to footwear and fresh imagination to the high street.”
