A MOTIVATED mum has been shortlisted for a Best Start-Up Award in this year’s Mumpreneur Awards.

Best known as a Spark Award, it’s given to a mother who has created the biggest impact in the shortest space of time since launching their business after April 6, 2013.

Hannah Murphy launched her nationwide business Globe Fit in late 2013, so when her husband saw an advert for the award on Facebook he immediately nominated her.

The 30-year-old said: ‘I would love to inspire local Portsmouth mums to take the plunge and start their own businesses.’

As a health and wellness company, Globe Fit promotes cultural awareness as well as fitness through hula-hooping and dance, and wholesome living by sharing tasty and nutritious recipes.

Hannah, who is mum to two children, is also an instructor at Globe Fit and provides training courses for other potential instructors.

She has 22 instructors delivering different classes across the nation including Kent, London and Yorkshire.

The awards ceremony is part of the annual Mumpreneur Conference which is being held at the Heart of England Conference Centre in Warwickshire on Saturday.

Run by parents for parents it celebrates those who launch and run their own business while raising a family. There are a total of 13 categories being awarded that day.

Hannah, from Stubbington, said: ‘It’s nice to be shortlisted because this is a national award and 3,000 people entered into it.’

All shortlisted candidates are automatically entered in to win the Inspire Award. This is for the overall Inspirational Mumpreneur 2015.

Hannah said she is looking forward to the ceremony and that she’s also going to be a bridesmaid that same day.

Luckily for her. each event is being held at different times.

‘It’s all a bit crazy,’ she said.

The next step that Hannah wants to take is setting up a networking meeting that is mum-friendly as she feels there’s a need for a support group for mums.

‘Networking is almost impossible when you’ve got to look for childcare,’ she said.

She plans to set up the event in Fareham later this month. For more information go to globefit.co.uk
