Kylie King, from Faulconbridge who also runs her business in Penrith, who founded The Phoenix Within business has been named Leadership Award third place winner not only in Judges Choice but also People’s Choice as well.

The awards were held online via Zoom where thousands of talented mums in business from all over the country tuned in to the livestream to support and encourage other Australian mumpreneurs.

Kylie said she was excited to win bronze in both her categories in the 2020 AusMumpreneur Awards in such a challenging time.

Kylie says: “It is such an honour to be recognised as a leader in the industry. Especially in the People’s Choice, to know that there are people out their supporting my vision and my message continues to inspire, motivate and empower me to keep going which during this challenging time there have been times when I could easily throw in the towel.”

“So honoured to be a finalist and winner amongst so many amazing women who are working their passions and chasing their dreams.”

The AusMumpreneur Awards are presented by The Women’s Business School and were created to inspire, celebrate and provide a community for Australian entrepreneurs, like Kylie. Now more than ever Australian women need inspirational role models and a safe and supportive space to connect online, Peace Mitchell, cofounder of The Women’s Business School said.

“These awards are all about recognising the growing number of mums who are achieving outstanding business success while balancing motherhood, states Mitchell.

“I was blown away by the courage, resilience and entrepreneurial spirit of the award winners and I know that they will provide great inspiration for other women considering starting their own business.”

This is the eleventh year the AusMumpreneur Awards have run, with the business mum community growing at lightning speed as mothers look for opportunities to join the ranks of small business owners in search of more flexibility, financial freedom and family time.

The Women’s Business School co-founder Katy Garner adds: “The awards show the passion of women who want to fulfil their entrepreneurial dreams as well as be great mums. The number of women starting businesses has continued to grow in 2020! Of the 670,000 women operating a small business in Australia currently, around 50 per cent are mums with children at home.  We are proud to be the number one community for mumpreneurs and showcasing the best and the brightest each year through these awards.” 

“We are delighted that Kylie has been acknowledged with these awards, she has created an outstanding business and is an inspirational role model and ambassador for mums in business everywhere. We wish her and all our amazing AusMumpreneur Award winners every success.”
