Jacqueline, the CEO of Ann Summers and Knickerbox, is a passionate supporter of women in business and each Wednesday she invites female business owners to tweet her using the #WOW hashtag along with a short overview of their business. She then chooses her favourite three to become #WOW (Women on Wednesday) winners.
I entered #WOW but didn't think anything of it until I started getting lots of twitter notifications and wondered what had happened!
I tweeted and included a picture “@Jacqueline_Gold I’m a newborn specialist photographer creating lasting memories for those tiny precious bundles #wow” and then a few hours later came Jacqueline’s tweet came.
“Congratulations and celebrations for today’s #WOW winners: @BlueLightsPhoto, @dazzleandfizz and @BridesandBeauty”
I was crazily in shock. I had only recently started re-using twitter and this was the first time I had entered #WOW and next I'm being chosen as a #WOW Winner!
Jacqueline Gold also tweeted to her 46,000 followers “@BlueLightsPhoto is run by Adele who is a specialist in photography for new born babies and weddings”
Since then, a facebook group has been set up for all the #WOW winners, and I have invited the Child & Wedding related #WOW winners to guest on my Blog.
There is such an amount of amazing inspiration in these women that have been chosen, all of which have passion for their business' but realise what it is like to be a small business and that this is a massive achievement for each and every one of us.
Jacqueline selects her business' based on their strong brand values and potential to succeed in their industry.
If you are a women in business then take part in #WOW every Wednesday 1-3pm make sure you tweet to @Jacqueline_Gold!
I look forward to showcasing some of the fabulous business' and fellow #WOW winners.
