Five Sunshine Coast Mums who were finalists in the AusMumpreneur Awards earlier this year have now been featured in a new book called Amazing Mumpreneurs featuring a collection of advice from some of Australia’s best and brightest Mums in business.

The event also featured Rachael Bermingham of 4 Ingredients TV & book fame, and now the owner of Bermingham Books who has sold over 4 million copies of books who will share her top tips on how to write a book and get published, as well as a range of stalls showcasing services and products relevant to Mumpreneurs.
The local group of Mumpreneurs shared how they started their highly successful businesses, how they manage the juggle of being a parent and business owner and their top tips to success at the event.
The book Amazing Mumpreneurs, published by the Mumpreneur Awards organisers connect2mums.com.au, celebrates and recognises Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business, product development, services and innovation in businesses from Australia and New Zealand.
The event additionally served as a fundraiser for the Pyjama Foundation. The Pyjama Foundation recruits, screens, trains and supports Pyjama Angels who provide modern-day ‘reading angels’ for Australia’s foster families supporting our most vulnerable children.
