A GRAPPENHALL entrepreneur has won a top award a regional enterprise awards.

Helen Pritchard, who has celebrated multiple consecutive six-figure launches of her ‘LinkedIn Mastermind’ course, won the ‘Internet Industry’ category at the Enterprise Vision Awards (EVAs) 2019.

She educates more than 40,000 people worldwide in her online communities.

Helen said: “The most inspirational thing about me is that if I can do it, then anyone can. I’m basically a hot mess, but I just focused on my goals and worked super-hard towards them.

“To have received this award a week before my 40th birthday feels so special. I am grateful to all my friends and family for their love and support, as well as to my team.”

Having built a business on LinkedIn leads, Helen now teaches others to do the same. She offers free challenges and resources – opening the doors to her ‘LinkedIn Mastermind’ course four times a year.

Helen’s walk to the stage was live streamed on the trending hashtag #EVAS2019 to the tune of Kendrick Lamar’s ‘Humble’.

An EVA judge expressed that Helen is ‘one of the most impressive ladies they have seen in over 10 years’.

“I know from the messages I get every day that I have changed hundreds of people’s lives,” added Helen. “I am madly in love with what I do, which is so much more than teaching people how to get leads from LinkedIn.

“Girls that grow up with female business owners are more motivated to run their own businesses in the future. My two daughters see all the hard work that goes into making Helen Pritchard Online a success. In our house, we practise daily gratitude for everything we’ve got, which now includes an EVA award.”

A total of 16 EVAs were handed out at Winter Gardens Blackpool to everyone from home workers to CEOs of multinational companies.

Coral Horn, founder of the EVAs, said: “The EVAs spread an inspirational message that women of all ages can be successful entrepreneurs. Each year, the EVAs gets bigger and better. This year, we’ve cried, laughed and been awestruck by the excellence of these talented women. They made it harder than ever for the judges, who were impressed by their passion.”
