July 23, 2010 - PRLog -- Shelly Zimmerman is the designer of the MyColourCup®, which has made it into the product innovation category finals for the Connect2mums AusMumpreneur Awards, being held in Southbank, Brisbane on Saturday 31 July.  She is a mother of four children and wife of 24 years, Twist-id Products business owner, and a full-time TASC employee.  Shelly is an American expatriate and has been living and working in Australia since1993. She invented this product at home in her spare time with the help of her supporting family and now holds an Australian patent on the design of the cup and trademark on the name.

MyColourCup® is the personalised product that will take the guesswork out of knowing who’s cup is who’s.  It is a unique set of plastic drinking cups where each cup is personalised with six names. The user of the cup can dynamically change each cup to show their name.  There is no other product like it on the market.  For details go to

When asked why she started this business Shelly Zimmerman is quoted as saying; " I didn't set out to start a company, I set out to fix my family.  Okay maybe that's a bit harsh; I set out to train my family on how to reuse the cups they already were using.  After several ineffective behavioral schemes and unsuccessful internet searches I broke down and designed what was not available and ended up with the MyColourCup®.  Yeah, now I definitely know which cup is mine!"

At the ‘AusMumpreneur’ Awards presentation there will be;
* Video Message from Queensland Premier Anna Bligh
* Special Guest Speakers: Hon. Karen Struthers MP (Qld Minister for women), Dr Lucy Burns, Despina Parakas, Beverley Rolt, Elizabeth Murphy, Michelle Fowler, Lisa O'Keefe, Antonette Golikidis
* Interviews conducted by the nineMSN Today Show!

The rise of the Mumpreneur
What is a Mumpreneur? – well it’s a mum who wants to be able to fulfill her potential as an entrepreneur as well and it seems the trend is on the rise with this industry being the fastest growing of all in Australia in 2010!

‘Mumpreneurs’ typically are successful, confident and innovative entrepreneurs who choose to be self-employed in their own business all while caring for their children and families at the same time.  They need to be innovative, professional, have great time management skills and flexibility and while its not for everyone, there are many women finding success in this arena.

The AusMumpreneur Awards celebrate and recognize those achieving success in the industry, in areas such as business, product development, services and innovation in both online and bricks and mortar businesses from around Australia.  

The AusMumpreneur Awards take place at a glamorous Awards dinner at Rydges, Southbank, Brisbane on Saturday 31 July. These awards are the only events of their kind in Australia and will be officially opened by Hon Karen Struthers MP the Minister for Women.

Connect2mums provides a safe and supportive environment for women in online businesses to get together and share information, network and gain support.  The site provides members with relevant information and opportunities to interact and socialise with other mums across Australia and New Zealand. Friday night live chats, newsletters, product reviews, real-life events, competitions and articles are just some of the ways women get connected at Connect2mums.
