"I was absolutely thrilled to win the WA Telstra 'Go For Business Gold' Award which was announced in Sydney on Thursday night at a cocktail event. It was all about motivation and inspiration, championed (and judged) by official Olympic Motivation Coach Laurie Lawrence.
The award was open to all small businesses in Australia. To enter, you had to either make a 2 minute video about what motivates you, your staff, or your customers, or write a short speil about it if you didn't do a video. I was so inspired, I did both...
Each state had 3 finalists announced, organisers flew all finalists plus a partner to Sydney and put us up in a flash hotel. From here we attended a special 'masterclass' where Telstra presenters gave us some great insights that could help small businesses. I took my friend and business coach Jess Blackwell from Equistricare with me, she has been inspirational to me, as have a number of close friends and family. It was a priveledge to hear these speakers just there for us, and I personally took pages and pages of notes and by the end of the day had a page full of ideas of things to do for my business. I was so pumped and motivated, was fairly sure I would not sleep that night!
The award was presented by Olympian Brooke Hanson which was incredible in itself to meet her (and we got to hold her gold and silver medals!)"
Melody said "I hope this can somehow inspire other horsey business owners to dream big. It seems us horsey people are a passionate bunch, I have been inundated with messages of congratulations!"
Well done from all the staff here at Horse Deals, we wish Melody all the success for the future and have been delighted to have been able to help her promote her business and Browbands through Horse Deals.
