Mother of two Michelle Jankovic is one of five top businesswomen to be selected as a finalist for two categories at the 2012 AusMumpreneur Awards.
Ms Jankovic, who started the website Helping Hand Is Here, has been selected for the category of Service Business of the Year and for the People’s Choice AusMumpreneur Awards in the category of Best Blog.
Ms Jankovic saw a need for a website when her son Bailey was diagnosed with cerebral palsy 7 years ago and she struggled to find helpful information.
Helping Hand Is Here provides a comprehensive online directory, which links families, carers and health professionals to disability and support services in their local area.
Ms Jankovic is thrilled to have been recognised for her hard work behind the scenes and is pleased her website has been able to assist the community.
“I was just happy to be nominated.”
“As it’s a national award, I only thought there would be a small chance I might get noticed,” Ms Jankovic said.
“I guess it shows there must be a need for disability directories, and that I must have touched the hearts of people who were voting.”
The results of the AusMumpreneur awards will be announced in August at a Gala Dinner in Sydney.
