A local mum of four, has been recognised on this year’s AusMumpreneur Awards shortlist for her efforts in growing a school yard idea into a successful business and providing employment opportunities for other mums.
Jess Ndenda, alongside her best mummy pal Shersin Luppi, established of Olive Louise Social (OLS), a digital marketing agency, because they were tired of missing important milestones in their children’s lives.
Now servicing 45 clients globally with a team of seven hard-working mums, the five-year old company is making waves in entrepreneurial circles.
OLS Marketing Director and AusMumpreneur (multiple) finalist said “I am sick of apologising for wanting to be both a Mum and a career woman”
“People look at me with sympathy when I say I am a working Mum of four, but the truth is, I want to be and I hate that our society thinks that way. I worked from my hospital bed hours after giving birth and would not have it any other way. It is hard, and a complete juggle of chaos at times, but at the end of the day that’s #mumlife!”
When asked if there was any advice for budding Mumpreneurs out there Jess has given an insight to how she stays on track. “Productivity and confidence. Know how to maximise and push yourself for every single second of every day, and NEVER apologise for wearing a baby at an occasional meeting or being covered in vomit, you can still rock that meeting despite smelling like puke!”
Jess has been shortlisted in the Business Coach Category, as a Peoples Choice Award and for Excellence in Business to Business Sevice as a Judged Award.
AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The AusMumpreneur Network celebrates and recognises Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success, and outstanding is exactly what Jess and her team of fellow working Mum’s are achieving.
