hanami dream network

As a WOW winner, I’m part of an exclusive network of female entrepreneurs including Jacqueline Gold herself who likes my blog posts frequently on Facebook. Wearing the #QueenOf crown also opens up a network of other winners with #QueenOf and #KingOf titles as part of The Royal Connection on Twitter and Facebook. Plus being an #SBSwinner gives me added support from other fellow winners during SBSwinnershour. There is a great deal of promotion, encouragement and sharing amongst the communities which helps to spread the word about my blog to a wider audience. Other networking opportunities arise as a result of the additional accolades I’ve been honoured to win such as the #SmartSocial and #BrightPig business of the week awards.
