Yes, you did read that right!
Following on from the post five tips for entering awards a couple of weeks ago, I thought I'd have a nose around for awards I could enter. As I've not actually launched my new business yet (but watch this space!) I was looking for awards I could enter next year. But it turns out that you can actually win a business at the BT Remote Worker Awards.
If you're not currenly working from home, you could win a franchise to run local magazine 'The Snippet' worth £10,000 and runners up will win business start up kits from Kleeneze and Phoenix trading. These are the prizes for the Arise Be Your Own Boss Award.
Fancy running a drama school for children? A £15,000 Helen O'Grady Drama Academy franchise is the prize for the Helen O'Grady Special Award. There are a couple of other wards that you could enter if you're already running a businesss (Parentpreneur Award, Home Business Award, maybe the Freelance Consultant Award). I'll definitely be getting my entry in next year!
It's a bit late for me now I've finally decided which business I'm going to run, but could this could be a great opportunity for you?
