Telstra Business Award

Filed under: Bits & Pieces,Small Business — smallbusinessdiva @ 9:46 am

I recently found out that one of my long-term clients nominated me for Australia’s prestigious 2008 Telstra Business Woman of the Year Awards.

When I look back over some of the amazing women who have won this award in previous years, I can’t begin to imagine that I would win it. However I am over the moon by the fact that someone else thinks I deserve it.

I am truly  honoured to be nominated. This, to me, is a reassurance that I’m doing things right and an encouragement for me to continue helping others to successfully establish and manage their own business.

Thank you.

Here’s to your success in business…




  1. Congratulations Donna-Marie. Being nominated for such a prestigious award is a great feather in your cap. Going through the nomination process is really valuable too. Good luck!
