This is just one of many amazing achievements I have had since relocating to Nova Scotia in 2011. I found out a few weeks ago that I was 1 of 3 finalists for the Entrepreneurs with Disabilities Entrepreneur of the Year award and thought that maybe this honor was a little premature as I am just picking up steam. My nomination was reviewed by local business representatives and ADDvocacy ADHD & Life Skills Coaching ltd was ultimately chosen!
I would like to thank the Entrepreneurs with Disability Network (www.ednns.ca) for all their help over the past few months. The crazy thing is that I just hooked up with them for the first time in December of 2012! The networking opportunities they have provided are incredible and this is just the icing on the cake. I would also like to thank their sponsors:
- Encana Natural Gas
- TD Canada Trust
- Office Interiors
- Atlantic Canada Opportunities Agency
- Nova Scotia Economic and Rural Development
- Nova Scotia Community Services
In addition I want to acknowledge the other two finalists:
- Annabel Purcell (Reliable Home Rentals) www.reliablehomerentals.com
- Stacey Campbell (Sugar Shok Candy Boutique) www.sugarshok.com
As well as the “Up and Coming Entrepreneur of the year”
- Claude Comeau (Speaking to make a difference) www.speakingtomakeadifference.com
Each of these finalists are amazing individuals and remarkable entrepreneurs. I have had the honor of working along side them at numerous events and was excited to share the stage with them tonight, Congratulations!
Again, I am completely honored to receive this amazing award and I am extremely excited to see what the future has in store for me!
