Get Ahead VA, founded by mum-of-three Rebecca Newenham, is delighted to have won ex BBC Dragons Den star Theo Paphitis’ prestigious Small Business Sunday award.
Small Business Sunday, shortened to the hashtag #SBS on Twitter, was created by Theo Paphitis to reward and promote small businesses and entrepreneurship. To enter, companies must tweet him and describe their businesses in one tweet, including the hashtag #SBS, between 5.00 pm and 7.30 pm on a Sunday. Every Monday night at 8pm, Theo reviews and chooses his favourite lucky six who are then re-tweeted. As he has over 499,000 Twitter followers, this provides a massive boost to the chosen lucky businesses.
Rebecca, who started the business after the birth of her 3 children, said “I am extremely proud to have won this prestigious business award and gained recognition from a world renowned business leader like Theo Paphitis. I became aware of #SBS through some previous winners and it appeared to be an exclusive club of successful small businesses with real tangible benefits, including being featured on Theo’s #SBS website (www.theopaphitissbs.com). Since winning I have been overwhelmed by messages of support from other previous winners and I am looking forward to going to collect my certificate from Theo himself at the next annual winners event.”
The winning tweet was accompanied by a picture of Rebecca in the new Get Ahead VA office and said: “@TheoPaphitis A team of over 30 Virtual Assistants who are helping other small businesses reach their goals! #sbs”.
