Adelaide mum wins gold at 2020 AusMumpreneur Awards
Madeeha Usman, from Adelaide, who founded ‘The Kalculators’ has won four awards from Ausmumprenuer in multiple categories throughout SA and WA. The award titles includes:
- People’s choice customer service award
- Rising star award
- Multicultural business award
- Business excellence award
The awards were held online via Zoom where thousands of talented mums in business from all over the country tuned in to the livestream to support and encourage other Australian mumpreneurs.
Madeeha said she was excited to win in her category in the 2020 AusMumpreneur Awards in such a challenging time.
Madeeha says: “The challenge of being a woman, a mother and an entrepreneur is empowering as it is. And to be recognized adds that movie-star bounce to our walk as we go out to take on the world. I remember myself when I had stepped into the world of business with big dreams. Years have passed and I am proud to say – that woman still lives in me, and is dreaming even bigger every day. I’m sure when you’ve thought of a powerful idea, there is always someone that reminds you to ‘be realistic. I just want to remind the amazing women out there that you create your reality. Never crush your big and powerful ideas under someone else’s version of reality. Make your powerful ideas happen.”
The AusMumpreneur Awards are presented by The Women’s Business School and were created to inspire, celebrate and provide a community for Australian entrepreneurs, like Madeeha. Now more than ever Australian women need inspirational role models and a safe and supportive space to connect online, Peace Mitchell, cofounder of The Women’s Business School said.
These awards are all about recognising the growing number of mums who are achieving outstanding business success while balancing motherhood, states Mitchell.
“I was blown away by the courage, resilience and entrepreneurial spirit of the award winners and I know that they will provide great inspiration for other women considering starting their own business.”
This is the eleventh year the AusMumpreneur Awards have run, with the business mum community growing at lightning speed as mothers look for opportunities to join the ranks of small business owners in search of more flexibility, financial freedom and family time.
The Women’s Business School co-founder Katy Garner adds: “The awards show the passion of women who want to fulfil their entrepreneurial dreams as well as be great mums. The number of women starting businesses has continued to grow in 2020! Of the 670,000 women operating a small business in Australia currently, around 50 per cent are mums with children at home. We are proud to be the number one community for mumpreneurs and showcasing the best and the brightest each year through these awards.”
“We are delighted that Madeeha has won this award, she has created an outstanding business and is an inspirational role model and ambassador for mums in business everywhere. We wish her and all our amazing AusMumpreneur Award winners every success.”
