Belle Maccoll aka Mrs. Sparkles has demonstrated herculean resilience after a devastating car accident left her seriously injured in 2015. Consequently, Belle was unable to work in the field of aged/disability care as an occupational therapist assistant.
Instead of surrendering to her limitations, Belle focused on healing a day at a time and decided, with the support and inspiration from her young daughter Miley, that she would start her own business.
A business that would ultimately bring joy, laughter and smiles to thousands.
“I have always loved bringing joy and happiness to people,” said Belle.
“My motivation for starting Born to Sparkle was a desire to continue spreading that joy and happiness in a new-found way. I wanted to give back to the community that helped me through my time in need.” she continued.
Born to Sparkle has received ongoing support and positive feedback from customers and other small business owners in the community. This is what makes them stand out among the 500+ nominations.
“Winning awards gives the industry recognition, increases team morale and workplace culture and leads to more family interest,” said What’s on 4 Kids founder, Elise Easdown.
