I launched my website www.classicbecca.com in September 2016 and have been working on new stock, marketing and design.
I had seen #SBS on Twitter which is a 2.5 hour slot on Sundays where you can tweet Theo Paphitis (Dragons Den, Rymans, Red Letter Days) with your pitch of your small business, to be in with a chance to win Small Business Sunday (#SBS). I had considered doing it the previous week but had missed the time slot, then Sunday 30th October I tweeted Theo Paphitis.
The next day I travelled to Manchester and forgot all about it, as I had no thoughts that I might win.
31st October at 8pm, I was charging my phone and a while later I looked at it, and it had exploded with tweets... why? I looked and instantly realised, I'd won (with 5 other people) Theo had retweeted my tweet and announced the winners. The tweets kept coming and coming with new followers and messages of congratulations. I was taken aback! I woke the next day and I had an email from the #SBS team with a link to set up my profile and get info and badges.
As I'm not at home, I have spent a day scrambling trying to sort business & website design work out on my phone, thank god for technology, eh?
I then ended the day with an hour on Twitter for #SBSwinnershour where this weeks winners and previous chatted business and networked.
So in conclusion. I'm proper chuffed!
Be Kind To Yourself & Others.
