Local business woman nominated for National Awards
Rae Graham of XLR8 Health has been nominated for the 2017 AusMumpreneur Awards.
The AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The AusMumpreneur Network celebrate and recognize Australian Mums in business achieving outstanding success in areas such as business excellence, product development, customer service and digital innovation. The awards are designed to recognize the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family.
Amazon Best Selling Author & Co-Founder of XLR8 Health Rae’s inspiration for starting XLR8 came from this photo in 2015 her ‘OH NO’ moment at the Wangaratta Mother’s Day Classic.
She was devastated. As the main organiser, she should have been on top of the world as they had just raised over $16,000 for Breast Cancer Research, but she was broken. She knew she was overweight but never knew it was this bad. She was 42 and had been dieting for over 25 years and she was still was overweight. After this day she knew she had to do something - dieting had not worked, excessive exercise regimes had not worked, she had to find a way naturally to lose the weight forever and she helped create XLR8 Health and help other woman finally get off the roller coaster of dieting.
There are many benefits to balancing business and motherhood as Rae Graham explains, “as a mum I know how hard it is to put yourself first and to be able to help other mums achieve their dreams of getting off the roller coaster of dieting is amazing and I know every day all the hard work I have put in is worth it as I am seeing the reward of helping people change their lives”.
It can be challenging to be a successful business woman whilst raising a family and Rae Graham gives this advice for others thinking about starting their own enterprise “don’t wait for it to be perfect, get out and have a go it will become perfect as you progress, you are amazing and the world needs to hear about you.”
