We’re Nominated For An Iris Award: Entrepreneurs Of The Year #mom2summit

Iris Awards Nomination 2017

Audrey and I are both sooooo completely honored and touched!!

There aren’t many award ceremonies in the blogging space. In fact, I actually can’t think of another one besides the Iris Awards during Mom 2.0. I could be wrong… but I don’t think so. 🙂

For this 2017 award season, there were 90 nominations split into 15 categories. And guess what? Audrey and I are proud to be among them! The category? Entrepreneurs of the Year.


I know I’m always exhausted and stretched too thin and constantly flying around the country from one gig to another… but I didn’t think anyone noticed. Well, except my husband. LOL! Seriously, this is so very nice to read.

We take pride in our community and in our work and in growing our business. It’s truly what drives us. In fact, a MAJOR focus for 2017 was to create a hub where other women can gain support to help live out their dreams. Permission to Hustle has become the little engine that could for everyone involved. We have carved out a small area on the web where people can share ideas, build dreams, and focus on launching future empires. It feels like… home.

To look at some of the other projects we’ve worked on, check out our Audrey and Vera website. It’s still a work in progress, but the page can paint a small picture of our day to day.

Are you attending Mom 2.0? If you’ve attended past conferences, you are eligible to vote this year. Look out for an email from <[email protected]> and if you feel up to it, take a look at the Entrepreneur of the Year category and keep me and Audrey in mind. 🙂

Congrats to all the other women who we are sharing the nod with – some heavy hitters, movers, and shakers!
