Here is a bit about My Experiences of the Process and the Awards!
Early 2019 I Entered the Awards and also received a couple of nominations which was lovely.
In May 2019 I received an email saying “Congratulations, you are a Finalist” and it felt amazing!
Between May – October we have a Mystery Shopper, and in September it’s the Interviews.
I LOVE my Business and therefore to win would just be the icing on the cake.
The Interview Stage is very important to everyone, because we want to get top scores.
Coming out of my Interview I felt frustrated because there was more I wanted to say but you only get 12 minutes.
After the Interviews, the countdown was on because there was just 1 month to go.
On the Night, I was Nervous and Excited, my mum came with me and I found myself thinking about what it would be like to win.
My Category “Retail” was announced just after our Starters, Sadly I didn’t Win, and I didn’t Receive Highly Commended either
I wont lie, I did feel Sad not to Win, but all the people that did win or Received Highly Commended all deserved their awards.
It was great to see so many friends win on the night and lots of ladies up on stage in my dresses too which was amazing.
So, what now?
I have some lovely things planned in the lead up to Christmas and the end of the year and I also have lots of great things planned for 2020.
I have made the decision that Next Year will be the final year that I enter the awards.
