The Drive: What challenges have you overcome?
I’m always trying to overcome some sort of challenge, but I refuse to let anything hold me back. I believe that there is always a way to move forward. I’ve had to learn a lot of new skills along the way which has kept me on my toes.
But the biggest challenges are working on my mindset. Making sure that I allow enough space for me to “fill my cup” and practice what I preach. We truly cannot be our best selves for our families if we are not looking after ourselves.
For better or worse: What are the pros and cons of running your own business?
I’ll start with the cons so I can end with the pros!
It’s not something you can switch off and not have to “worry” about. Running a business is almost like another piece of yourself. You are so invested in seeing it grow that you are constantly thinking of ways to improve, adapt and change. Which means being “inspired” and running to the computer to implement your ideas when you just sit down to “relax”.
It can be isolating working from home, especially with being an extrovert. I get my energy from being around people. So anytime I can have a phone call, meet up with someone for a coffee, I will be the first to put my hand up.
The pros are that this is my creation, it comes from within my soul and I have full creative power to do whatever I like. My name, branding, style is all my own hard work, wrapped up in love and out there for the world to love or reject. I enjoy the thrill of all the ideas and things I can do and how I support and nurture new mothers.
I can serve new mothers the way that I want to and create something special and amazing.
Most importantly, I get to make a lasting impact on mothers’ lives and support them through the most vulnerable time. There is nothing more special than to be there for someone, from a space of love.
Hopes and dreams: What next?
I have huge hopes and dreams for my business. I want to support women worldwide and see women supporting and connecting from a place of love for each other. Together we will create an amazing safe and non-judgmental space where new mothers can grow and enjoy this wild rollercoaster of motherhood together!
