My Business Award

Back in January I worked my socks off and won a business award and a big grant to kickstart my illustration business. It was a huge acknowledgment of what can be achieved when you set your mind to it and that dreams really can come true! The presentation at the beautiful Old Rectory Hotel in Hastings was unforgettable, someone actually said the atmosphere was as tense as the Xfactor! I was presented with a big fat check and a pat on the back from my competitors. Now I can call myself an entrepreneur!
Ive set up the blog to keep you all posted with what i'm up to with my business and how i'm investing my £5000 award. Watch this space for further press!
