I'm so happy to be able to share here on the blog an interview that I did with Kelly from Sugar Plum Lane, one of my favorites shop online. She makes amazing baby leggings among other things, with modern and fashionable designs for the super trendy mom and baby.
Here is what she has to say about being a mom and run a business from home.
I started my business back in 2012 shortly after my little one was born. She has inspired me so much with my designs and my shop name (she used to be my little Sugarplum among other crazy nicknames). I have the most fun coming up with new designs, that is why I come out with a lot of new things frequently. The most challenging thing I have found in owning my business is that it takes up a LOT of time. The best part of owning my own business is getting to be at home watching my little one grow, I feel extremely blessed because I know that some moms don't get to have that opportunity, I enjoy every moment I have with her.
My best tip for finding customers is Instagram, friends always tell their friends if they love what you do. On a bad day I just remind myself that I am human, everyone makes mistakes and you learn from them. Every mistake I have made has gotten me to where I am today. I respect and admire anyone who opens their own business, it takes a lot of courage!
