“Oh, I’ve only been in business a year, I’ll never win”
“We’re so preoccupied with work, we’ve no time, and we probably won’t win”
“Our business is so small, and we don’t do anything that glamorous, we’d never win”
I felt exactly the same way when I entered my very first awards ever – the Mundaring Chamber of Commerce – in 2015. I’d been in business less than a year, worked from my kitchen table with no employees, and provided a service most people didn’t even understand (I’m a copywriter – which has nothing to do with legals!)
To be honest, I applied because my good friend Kate did. And I wanted to attend the awards and drink champagne with her.
