Gold Coast resident Zhanna Gee, originally from Latvia, has been named AusMumpreneur Multicultural Business Excellence Award winner for her business Slim By Nature.

The 2021 awards were held at an online event where hundreds of talented mums in business from all over the country gathered to support and encourage other Australian mumpreneurs. Gee is incredibly thankful and excited for her win against such a talented group of women. She is honoured that her efforts and passion for helping women across the world by educating and empowering them in their health and wellness journey has been recognised by such a respected Award.

AusMumpreneur was created to support Australia entrepreneurs like Gee and her fellow award winners, Peace Mitchell, cofounder of AusMumpreneur said. “These awards are all about recognising the growing number of mums who are achieving outstanding business success while balancing motherhood. I was blown away by the entrepreneurial spirit, resilience and professionalism of the award winners and I know that they will provide great inspiration for other mums considering starting their own business.”

This is the twelfth year the AusMumpreneur Awards have run, with the community growing at lightning speed as mothers look for opportunities with more flexibility, financial freedom and family time. AusMumpreneur Network co-founder Katy Garner said, “The awards show the passion of women who want to fulfil their entrepreneurial dreams as well as be great mums.”

“We are delighted that Zhanna Gee has won this award,” said Mitchell. “She has created an outstanding business and is an inspirational role model and ambassador for mums in business everywhere.”
