Every Sunday Theo Paphitis (of Dragon’s Den fame) runs a competition on Twitter called “Small Business Sunday” or #SBS. The idea is you pitch your business to Theo via a tweet and then every Monday at 8pm he picks his 6 favourite businesses.


So, this Monday I was just retuning from taking the dog for a walk and taking my boots off when I could hear my phone beeping and buzzing non-stop.

“ Great!” I thought, suspecting my iphone had finally given up after being manhandled yet again by my toddler.  But then I realised, in fact, my phone was just, well busy. As I turned it on there were 180 tweets!!!

180! I’d only been out for about 25 minutes. I had a look and there on my screen was “@Theopaphitis has RT your Tweet”. How exciting! So, it turns out I was one of the lucky 6 that Theo choose! Now, that’s the good news, but it gets better, I also get to meet him (and get a lovely certificate) .

And finally, here’s the winning tweet!

And here I was collecting my award. It was a brilliant conference and well worth attending I can’t wait to go back again next year.

As always thanks so much for popping by, we’ve got lots of exciting things going on at the moment so do stay tuned!
