WINNER: Working Mum of the Year

Charlotte Wibberley

Businesswoman Helping Others Achieve Their Ambitions Wins International Award

We’re delighted to announce Charlotte as the winner of SuperAchievers Working Mum of the Year 2017! Read her story again here...

Charlotte is mum to two children aged 4 and 2 and works as an entrepreneur. She established her own VA coach and online strategist business after looking at a way to balance family life with a career that would utilise the experience gained in a position she’d held for 12 years working as a corporate EA.

Charlotte is now and Online Business Manager and CEO and Co-Founder of VIA VA. Establishing a new business with such a young family has not been easy but with the support of her husband and extended family Charlotte has learnt to overcome her own ‘imposter syndrome’ and is now welcoming each and every opportunity her business is bringing. She states that overcoming that limiting mindset has been one of her biggest successes.

Now Charlotte is busy helping entrepreneurs and business owners who are looking to set up and grow their own businesses. Her dream is to help others achieve their dream. Her children and that “big picture end goal” is what keeps her motivated. She is striving to be the mum that is at every school occasion as well as having a rewarding career. And she wants to prove to her children that they don’t have to fit in a box and that they can follow their career dreams. As she says “Work doesn’t necessarily mean sitting in an office 9-5, you can make your own rules within reason.”

As for future hopes, Charlotte is hoping to be able to grow the number of mums she works with in setting up and growing their online and VA businesses. She would also like to turn VIP VA into a not-for-profit organisation.

In her entry we asked Charlotte why she should win this award, she said “I am on a mission to support other mums like me in creating a lifestyle that means they don’t have to compromise or ‘miss out’ in either their career or in their roles as mothers. I believe that I am a champion for working mums across the UK and I would like to be able to reach out to more and share my experience, to be able to hopefully inspire them to think ‘I can do it too!’”


When asked why she thought Charlotte should win this award, judge Jennifer Corcoran commented: “What stood out for me when reading Charlotte's entry was her genuine desire to help other working mums to follow their career dreams. VIP VA has created a supportive and nurturing platform for other business women and I love the fact that she wants to prove to her children that they also don't have to fit into a 9-5 box to be successful in their careers. I'm certain that Charlotte will continue to motivate and inspire other women to overcome their imposter syndrome and be the CEO of their lives!”

Fellow judge Diane Rose applauded Charlotte for her “awareness of how limiting ‘mindset’ can be in business and overcoming it”.She also commended her for “using her personal experience to assist other Mums in a similar position to follow their dream”.
