CLARITY in writing about work-life balance has won a boutique business owner a coveted award.

Parkerville mother-of-three Jay Crisp Crow scooped the accolade for ‘best life and business clarity’ in this year’s Brilliant Biz Mum awards.

After a decade of working in independent schools, the digital communications specialist started a copywriting and communications business in early 2015.

The ‘mum-preneur’ will add the latest award to her growing collection.

Ms Crow took home the Shire of Mundaring excellence in micro business award last year, closely followed by the Nifnex Top 100 Influential People in Small Business prize.

Earlier this year, she was a nominee in the Telstra Women in Business Awards.

Ms Crow said she was overwhelmed by the support and encouragement of her local community.

“Small business owners are special,” she said.

“They deliver a bespoke, specialised service or product to the world, and provide the local and global economy with diversity and interest.”

With children aged from three to 16, the work-from-home mum is an expert in multi-tasking.

“Running a business along with juggling the demands of teenagers and toddlers, you don’t get the chance to give yourself a pat on the back very often, so being nominated for these awards means a great deal,” she said.

“I’m so fortunate to have had the support of my family and the small-business community in the Hills.”

The national awards night was held in Melbourne on Saturday.
