Better health a driving force

A NEW Norfolk business woman has been named as a finalist in a national award recognising “AusMumpreneurs’’.

Stacey Aldous of Freedom Health and Wellness has been named as a finalist for the 2021 Health Business and People’s Choice categories.

The AusMumpreneur Awards presented by The Women’s Business School celebrate and recognise 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 recognise the growing number of women who successfully balance motherhood and business in a way that suits their life and family,’’ an awards spokes-person said.

“Freedom Health and Wellness is a community fitness centre in the Derwent Valley, where members aged from to 85 gather to improve their physical and mental health, be inspired and motivated.

“Stacey attributes the success of the business to additional learnings through evidence-based study, (she’s currently completing a Masters in Clinical Exercise Physiology).

“A healthier community is her driving force.”

Ms Aldous was delighted to be named as a finalist and is proud of the positive influence Freedom has on the physical and mental health of the ‘Freedom Crew’ and the wider community.

“Every day I get the opportunity to make a difference to people’s lives and I love it,’’ Ms Aldous said.

“From kids to older adults, our team has created a space for everyone to be supported and inspired to be the best version of themselves.

“It can be challenging to be a successful businesswoman while raising a family.”

Her advice to others starting out is to start small and build slowly, work hard to put together a great team and make sure they know they are appreciated.

People’s Choice voting started on Monday and ends on Friday August 27.

The winners of the 2021 AusMumpreneur Awards will be announced at an online event in September.
