    National Award Nomination for Local Mumpreneur


    Being a parent whilst juggling a business is a hard task, and nobody knows this better than Miki Pinder. Miki, a mother of 2 from Gillingham, Dorset, runs Sunshine & Daises, an online store retailing Swarovski Wine Glass Charms & Gifts. The business was launched in 2006 as a way for Miki to stay at home with her young children. She has been nominated for an award at The Mumpreneur Awards 2013, a national award scheme for mums who run their own enterprise.


    The Mumpreneur Awards 2013 are the UK's first national business awards dedicated solely to mums in business. Now in its fifth year, the awards have been a platform for many mumpreneurs to enhance their business, and continue to grow even through this uncertain economic climate.

    As well as being nominated in the Best Online Business & Best Mumpreneur Product categories, Miki is also in with a chance of winning The Inspirational Business Mum Award, which will be awarded to the mother who proves to be an inspiration to all women in business.


    Miki now has to wait until the beginning of September, when she will find out whether she has made the finals, which will be taking place on 28th September 2013 at The Holiday Inn, Birmingham.
