Katina Wins Self-Employed / Sole Trader of the Year 2022

On Friday I attended the Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Celebrating Small Businesses Awards in the East of England. The event was held at Newmarket Racecourse. There were 12 different categories and I knew I had been shortlisted as one of the finalists.

Looking at the agenda I saw I was shortlisted for the last category; this meant I wouldn’t know if I had won until 4 pm. As the day progressed I witnessed so many inspiring businesses win their awards. Coda Compostables won the Environmental / Sustainability Award; their story was fascinating originally a plastics company, they now made coffee pods that composted naturally after use in your compost bin. Haypigs were finalists for several different awards, although they didn’t win, I loved their business idea – they make toys, treats, and accessories for guinea pigs including a full circus set.

Chatting to the other finalists, I realised that on my table four of us were all shortlisted for the same award. The other business owners were truly outstanding. A fabulous boutique in Ipswich, a company that offers bespoke marketing, an interior design company, and of course me. We agreed that we were all already winners by being finalists regardless of who won.

When the winner was announced, I was surprised and thrilled to be presented with the Self-Employed / Sole Trader of the Year Award.

It was such an amazing experience. Hearing other people’s stories and successes. And then having my own success. I am truly grateful for winning and having the opportunity through hypnotherapy to help so many people.
