An Upminster mum-of-two is celebrating this week after being named the winner of a prestigious national business award.

Jackie Hind was named the Part Time Seller of the Year at a glamorous awards night in Leicester hosted by the Direct Selling Association (DSA) on Monday.

Jackie developed her direct selling business with Juice Plus whilst juggling a full-time career in retail and bringing up her two children.

She decided to put an end to watching TV in the evenings, instead working to develop her direct selling once she had finished work and put her children to bed.

Lynda Mills, DSA director general, said: “It was inspiring to read that through her hard work and determination, Jackie has been able to build such a successful career in direct selling alongside her full-time role in retail, and ultimately achieve a better work/life balance as a result.

“I’m delighted to offer my sincere congratulations.”
