Mommy Monday:: Jennifer at The Eczema Company

Hello! Happy Monday! Welcome to our Mommy Monday feature for this week! Each week, we interview a mom business owner and get to know her a little better! We like to find out how she balances life with children and a business! We also like to hear about the marketing strategies that are working for her! Hopefully, this provides a little bit of inspiration to all of the other hard working moms out there! If you’d like to be considered for this feature, send us an e-mail! We’d love to learn about your business, too!

Today’s mom entrepreneur is Jennifer Roberge.

What is your business?
The Eczema Company and It’s an Itchy Little World.

When did you start your business?
2011

What services/products do you offer?

At The Eczema Company, we offer natural eczema treatments for children and adults. Our mission is to provide the best products for eczema to soothe your itchy little world. Our blog shares my family’s personal experiences with battling eczema and we also offer advice from natural health care practitioners as well as success stories from other families. 

How do you balance family and business?
Well, I’m not sure it’s that balanced, but I try my best to work only when the kids are at school. But that can be tricky at times because I work from home and I find myself often jumping back to my office to return just one email or search for an idea that just popped to mind. The kids are really good at reminding me that they need attention and my work can wait J But no matter how balanced or unbalanced my work-life balance is, I do try not to judge myself for it and that’s what really makes a difference.

What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?
Don’t be too hard on yourself. There will be times when you’ll work too much and that’s ok. Forgive yourself and move on. Just make time for your family and appreciate those amazing moments when you have them. Put your phone down, walk away from the computer and give yourself fully to your family.

How do your market your business?
We do a lot of work over social media and we love to work with bloggers. Email marketing does really well for us too, so we sent out two newsletters each month with information on our products and with posts from our blog.

Mommy Monday:: Melissa LaHann

Hello! Happy Monday! Welcome to our Mommy Monday feature for this week! Each week, we interview a mom business owner and get to know her a little better! We like to find out how she balances life with children and a business! We also like to hear about the marketing strategies that are working for her! Hopefully, this provides a little bit of inspiration to all of the other hard working moms out there! If you’d like to be considered for this feature, send us an e-mail! We’d love to learn about your business, too!

Your name and business name:

Hi! My name is Melissa LaHann and I’m the founder of a Chicago based company called LatchPal by Happy Fig Our product simplifies breastfeeding for new mothers.

When did you start your business?  July 1, 2014

What services/products do you offer?

LatchPal is a mom-invented nursing clip that converts a mother’s shirt, sweater, or sweatshirt into a nursing shirt within seconds. LatchPal eliminates the nuisance of a falling shirt and gives mom a clear view of her nursing child. LatchPal also frees a mother’s hands, so she can hold her child more securely & comfortably. Our simple solution is perfect for post-partum moms, pumping, and nursing in public. It’s a must have!

How do you balance family and business?

I’m a busy gal enjoying the role of mom, wife, friend, and entrepreneur.  I’m fueled by love, caffeine, and a desire to help new mothers.  Let’s face it, parenthood is tough and at some point most of us need a helping hand. That’s why we created LatchPal and it’s also why I rely upon a treasured network of family and friends.  They give me balance and inspire me to love more, live more, and enjoy each day.  It’s been said that a person is a reflection of their 5 closest friends and I’m fortunate to be surrounded by like-minded people who are driven by genuine passion, inspired to make a difference, and devoted to their families.  

What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?

Everything will take longer than you think; anticipate, plan, & prepare.

How do your market your business?

We strive to get LatchPal in the hands of mothers who need it.  We love connecting with new moms, lactation consultants, hospital professionals, bloggers, and retailers at tradeshows and via social media.  The internet is a wonderful resource for sharing and caring; we enjoy sharing LatchPal testimonials, inspirational videos, and parenting resources on Facebook , Twitter, & Pinterest.

We’d love to learn about your business, too!

Today’s mom entrepreneur is Jennifer Erickson.

What is your business?
Children’s Directory

When did you start your business?
It was started by myself and a partner in 2007. In 2009 I took over full time and have been operating solo ever since.

What services/products do you offer?
We are a family resource guide promoting family friendly places, services and products that we think make life with kids so much easier! Behind the scenes of the blog we work with local companies, service providers and national brands to spread their message through integrated marketing campaigns and blogger outreach programs.

How do you balance family and business?
It’s tough being the only parent raising a rascal and balancing a career. My biggest issue is knowing when to shut down for the day. I tend to just put everything off between the hours of 3pm and 8pm Monday thru Friday, which is dedicated to the boy and his needs and then as soon as he starts snoring (he won’t admit it but he snores) I am back at it and have been known to burn the midnight oil ending up exhausted and a tad bit cranky by the end of the week! I am however very conscious of my need to fully unplug and have been making some pretty good progress lately!

What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?
Enjoy your kids and family. I took 6 years off from my full time career and it was the best thing for me. I know it’s not for everyone but for me having that time to focus on family was exactly what I needed.

How do your market your business?
Social media is a big part of our strategy. Facebook and Twitter are our favorite platforms as well as a couple of blogging networks that have helped share our content. We are active in our community and maintain excellent relationships with the brands that we work with so really it’s all about building and maintaining the relationship with connections made along the way.

Today’s mom entrepreneur is Gina Almonte.

What is your business?
Refresh-a-Baby, Inc.

When did you start your business?
2012

What services/products do you offer?
Refresh-a-Baby turns water bottles and other baby beverage bottles like "ready-made" baby formula bottles and juice bottles into baby bottles, anytime, anywhere keeping baby hydrated and happy on-the-go! It's 100% Made in the USA and BPA Free!

How do you balance family and business?
Very carefully!  I have to shut down a little while when my son comes home from school for homework time, snack, to hear about his day, and a little outdoor activity. It is very hard to do this when there are so many deadlines, but your child is only young once and I refuse to miss out on his life.  My work can wait a little for quality time needed with my son.

What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?
Don't be afraid to ask for help.  There are plenty of resources out there and willing people to help if you just ask you'll find it and it will make a world of difference. 

How do your market your business?
I have been mainly marketing organically via word of mouth and social media, but also through trade shows and occasional print opportunities.
