AN ENTERPRISING Sheffield woman has been recognised as one of the top 100 mums in business.

Mum-of-one Aimee Rogers, of Oughtibridge, set up a personal training business, Revitalize Fitness, in 2010 after being made redundant from her job at Sheffield Council.

Now the Sheffield Hallam University sport and exercise science graduate has been named in the Mumpreneur 100, a list of the UK’s top 100 mothers in business compiled by website Mumpreneur UK, which calls itself ‘the UK’s leading support network for mums in business’.

After winning the award, Aimee, mum of 14-month-old Finley, said: “I was so shocked and pleased.

“When you are self-employed, you have to put yourself out there and really believe in yourself.

“To have someone recognise that hard work and say ‘well done’ means a lot.”

Laura Rigney, from Mumpreneur UK, said: “The competition was stiff and there were so many entries that it took us four weeks longer to go through them than we had originally allowed.”
