Wonderful news! I am humbled to have been selected as a finalist in two categories in the 8th annual International Business Awards for Women in Business, also known as the Stevie Awards.
The Stevie Awards were created to honor the achievements of organizations and business people around the world, and the group has been recognizing outstanding women in business since 2004.
I was chosen as a finalist in the Best Entrepreneur category for Service Businesses up to 100 Employees for my role as President and Founder of Russian PointeÂ® by Aleksandra, Growing Through ArtsÂ® and Russian Culture Now. In addition, The Ballet Series of books and toys from Growing Through ArtsÂ® was selected as a finalist for the Best New Product or Service of the Year.
One winner will be determined in each category and announced at the awards dinner at the Marriott Marquis Hotel in New York City on Nov. 11.
Today, there are so many women entrepreneurs spearheading influential and inspiring companies, not just in the United States, but all over the world, and I am honored to be recognized among them.
Check back in November to see if we won!
