The week that was – Mums in Business and more…
Posted On August 6, 2010
It’s been a crazy week. Last weekend I went to an awards night that was part of the Connect2Mums 2010 AusMumpreneur Conference, in Brisbane (Australia). I was honoured to be asked to present the award for Best Eco Friendly business which was sponsored by Herbology. The room was full of amazingly inspiring women (and a few Dads), the atmosphere supportive and abuzz with excitement. There were a number of awards on the evening and I would like to do a shout out to show off some of the fabulous businesses run by mums.

Since the awards Herbology has been suffering from a whole lot of technical hiccups which caused the whole domain to crash not once but twice. That means that you guys will not have been able to access Herbology, Herb-blog-ogy, the shop or the Herb Business Directory. We are still not 100% sure which of the upgrades we were trying to complete caused this meltdown and as we still need to finish them it may happen again. (Gosh, I really hope not). So that is my excuse for having been absent for a while.
It’s already August – where has the year gone? – so it must be time for our Herb of the Month…..hmm…what will it be?
