    For the past week I have been using social networking to the max to get my votes for the Dorset Business Mum of the Year

     

    claire youngOn the first day of voting I secured a thumbs up, vote and Re-tweet from Claire Young, finalist in The Apprentice 2008. Claire says ‘supporting enterprise in the UK is something important to me and my work, so its great to see a young mum such as Joanne strive forward and inspire others. She certainly gets my vote!’

     

    On Saturday I was thrilled and excited to see a tweet stating ’Joanne Dewbury calling for votes for Top Dorset Businesswoman for @CharlieMoos http://bit.ly/9w0gys â€™ from none other than Sarah Brown AKA Mrs Prime Minister herself. sarahI was immensely overwhelmed I must admit! I knew Mrs Brown was following me but I never imagined she would actually read my dribble! I sat for at least 10 minutes mesmerised it was when other tweets started pouring in and text messages that I realised just who had written it. My initial thought was she spelt my name wrong! I feel so honoured as I know that Mrs Brown is and advocate for women, especially mums with the campaigns such as million mums.

  2. From reading my blog you probably know what an advocate I am for Networking and mummies in business, through my work with Networking Mummies I have met some amazingly talented Mums/Business Women.  Today we had a bit of girlie Networking Mummies get together via Hope FM!  Hope FM aims to offer a mixture of positive and uplifting music and chat, highlighting all that is relevant to our local community.

    It was the lovely Margaret Hitchmen, Bagel Heaven a fabby little gem of a place in Bournemouth so if your out and about and feeling pekish you really must pop in.  She's also a bit of a newbie to the Networking Mummies clan, and today was her first day hosting a show on Hope FM! She invited myself along for a chat about Charlie Moo's and running a business around being a full time mummy.

    I had such a great time I didnt want to leave! Luckily the next gueon was my lovely friend and fellow mumpreneur Nicky (www.olliescloset.co.uk) so it all turned into a bit of a girlie gossip! It's so empowering to be surrounded by women who know the struggles and yet stare them in the face and say 'I can have my cake and eat it!' (and Mags does fabulous cakes aswell in Bagel Heaven!!) But I hope the listeners found it useful and interesting!! And I look forward to being invited back on soon!!
