“Being selected as a finalist means so much to me because What I thought was just going to be a small side business to help us promote our family business and get to network with other like-minded people, ended up turning into so much more than just a networking group. It has taken me on a journey of self-discovery and self-worth and allowed me to meet and connect with the most amazing people

I feel my story is like many, however the difference is I have taken that risk, I have made that decision to carve my own identity once again after marriage and kids and I have committed myself to being an inspiring and motivating mentor to others who may feel like they are not worthy or not confident to be who they want to be, or approach those who may be intimidating or who might also feel like they are just the plumbers wife. I am making a difference and I’m getting the cogs moving for others so they know that they too matter and can be a successful AusMumpreneur too”

Business is not always easy and CRG Creative Networking has overcome challenges but has also seen great success. Initially when Renee launched the business it was a weekly face to face Networking group, built from the ground up and increased weekly attendance then in May this year after taking the risk and acknowledging a gap in the market and a need to change the business model to a Business Resource Hub for all things Networking and Customer Relationships support that can be utilized by more people in more areas around Sydney with no restrictions which resulted in stopping the weekly meetings and is now slowly becoming the go to source for all things relating to networking and customer relationship building.

It can be challenging to run a successful business whilst raising a family and Renee gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise. “Things don’t come easy, you have to work at it, challenge yourself, be prepared to make change along the way and understand that you have to be resilient in everything you do”
