Ian Pinnell picked by Theo Paphitis in Small Business Sunday

Every Sunday since the beginning of January, I’ve been tweeting Business and retail entrepreneur and self-confessed Shopkeeper, Theo Paphitis, as part of his Small Business Sunday (#SBS) competition over on Twitter, with the hope of being chosen as one of his weekly 6 winners.

Fast forward to Sunday 4th April 2021, where I sent out this tweet to Theo

Then roll on Monday 6th April, where I was announced as one of six people who had won.

Absolutely thrilled to have been named one of the Small Business Sunday winners this week.

You may wonder what winning allows me to do and what I get for it. Noticeably, I get to network with other winners from over the years with a view of helping businesses out with their digital & UI designs. It might not seem much to you, but this is something I’ve been aiming for since the start of the year. I didn’t set a New Year’s resolution, but I did set myself a challenge to start this venture up and whilst I haven’t set myself any targets or deadlines this year, what with the pandemic and such, I feel like I’m off to a great start.

This win for me in #SBS will allow me to network with other small businesses, has potential to expand my portfolio, help business owners with their websites and allow me to attend events throughout the year.
