The Moment they Announced Katy as the Entrepreneur of the Year
Watch the following Presentation Video from the Awards Ceremony …
In 2014 Katy won the ‘Success Story of the Year’ award as well as being named ‘Overall Sussex Woman of the Year‘ at the 2014 Sussex Woman of the Year Awards, presented to her by the co-founders of the National Mumpreneur’s Networking Group.
In 2015 her awards success was raised to a global level when she won the 2015 Global Business Excellence Award for ‘Outstanding Educational Services’. Towards the end of 2015, she won the AI Business Excellence Award for ‘Health & Beauty Training Program of the Year‘ for the UK.
More recently, Katy won the ‘Training Centre of Excellence‘ Award at the glamorous 2016 etc. Magazine Hair & Beauty Awards. In the past she had also been shortlisted for 2 ‘Lifetime Achievement’ awards even though she only recently turned 30 years old!
Although speechless on the stage when accepting this latest award (and thinking she was actually a runner up, as you can see from the above video!) after time to reflect on this latest award success, Katy said:
“Being named ‘Sussex Entrepreneur of the Year’ after seeing the long list of other successful female business women came as a huge shock to me. To say I was lost for words is an understatement, however I am so proud of the testimonials my students have given which show the support and dedication I have given to each and every one of them.
I love nothing more than helping them set up their own businesses in this thriving industry and seeing the life-changing results they consistently achieve both financially and emotionally. It proves that my philosophy of the more you give the more you get back yourself is true!”
I have always followed the sound advice of American Business Author & Entrepreneur Og Mandino …
“Deliver more than you are getting paid to do. The victory of success will be half won when you learn the secret of putting out more than is expected in all that you do.”
Why not consider a career in permanent makeup yourself…
