Sydney business woman named as a finalist in National AusMumpreneur Awards
Rhian Allen of www.losebabyweight.com.au has been selected as a finalist in the 2011 Bio-Oil AusMumpreneur Awards.
The 2011 Bio-Oil AusMumpreneur Awards presented by connect2mums celebrate and recognize Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business, product development, services and innovation in businesses from Australia and New Zealand. The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.
Rhian Allen is a mum of one from Sydney who at 6 months pregnant decided to leave the security of a 12 year long career in the media industry to pursue her dreams of running her own business in the health and weight loss industry. After identifying a gap in the market for a holistic solution to post baby health and weight loss Rhian launched Lose Baby Weight in October 2010.
Since October 1 she has helped over 2,000 mums across Australia lose their baby weight totalling a collective loss of 10,000kg and due to the success of the business has also now launched in New Zealand (you can see results of mums on the plans here).
There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood as Rhian explains, “I love doing something worthwhile and helping so many mums get in shape and improve their health and I love being able to do it all around my baby even though it is very much a juggling act”
It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Rhian gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise, “Have a clear focus on what you want to achieve and time frame in which to do it and always make sure you set a budget and do a business plan as it is easy to overspend"
The winners of the 2011 Bio-Oil AusMumpreneur Awards will be announced at a glamorous Awards dinner at Mercure Sydney on Saturday 27 August 2011.
