Mommy Monday:: Measuring Up

 
Your name and business name:
Lauri Chertok
When did you start your business?
2014

What services/products do you offer?
The business is an app and blog the reeducates people how to measure themselves and clothing to achieve the perfect fit. Measurements can be stored and shared with friends, family, and colleagues to ensure an easier experience not just when shopping online or in stores, but also when buying gifts while maintaining some degree of secrecy for the surprise. The blog aims to inform the public of opportunities and adventures in using this type of service, but the goal is to put fit confidence in the hands of people who face rapid changes in design and fit as factories and retailers continue to adjust sizing to optimize fabric cuts for what once achieved a perfect fit.
How do you balance family and business?
 Honestly, there is no magic formula here. When you're passionate about what you do, you find the time. It may sound cliche or like a brush off, but passion drives mental activity, and for me, that means that my mind keeps me awake and driving away at the problem we are trying to solve until we at least have a framework for the solution. It's the passionate drive to solve the problem that integrates the business sociably into my life. When I talk to my family about shopping, the subject of the app comes up and when I'm out and about, it provides utility value to me, say, if I'm shopping online and need to know how I match to a sizing chart. My life isn't the business and my business isn't my life, but my business has a utility value to my life so it is a part of my community. 
What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?  
Just don't be intimidated. It's a common myth that women need to choose between their careers and their families, and it's just not true. I know it may seem easy for me to say, given my choice to pursue something utilitarian as a business opportunity, but honestly, I looked at my own difficulties and picked a problem that many other people, particularly those in my community, have. My business became a solution to a problem, an outlet for creativity, and an oasis when I needed a break from just getting through the day. You're a mom, which is a full-time job, but just remember to seek out business partners where you find them that want to see you succeed and that bring something to the table, skills-wise, that you don't have. If you're married or if you live close to family or friends, learn early who you can rely on and take advantage of that - and always be sure they want you to succeed too. One of the worst things you can do is rely on someone socially who helps out but puts down what you're doing because they don't get it. We all lead busy lives, but that doesn't mean that your family means giving up your career.
How do your market your business?
So far, the business model has been uniquely subdued in its development. The app itself is live on the Apple App store and we've built a blog and website, but we haven't done aggressive promotions to date. The App is more of a beta test for an idea my business partner has to expand its broader industry applications as a business-to-business solution for supply chain optimization. He is currently working on the math and plans behind this, but when we've talked about it with corporate contacts, they are very interested despite the potential for change management on their end. Like me, he is very motivated to get this out there.

Mommy Monday:: Univhers 

Your name and business name:

Natasha Soleil operates Univhers. You can download the app from iTunes here.

When did you start your business?

I initially started my business 8 years ago just a web site to make it easy to post DIYs and recipes. My son Luka was newborn at the time and I didn’t have time to set up a blog and upkeep one so, I figured as a technologist I would prefer to build a solution for all the other moms like me who want to share a recipe or project...and don’t have time to blog.

What services/products do you offer?

The Univhers app makes it easy to post a DIY or recipe tutorial step by step with pictures and text an recommend links a like a blog, site , store or product. 

How do you balance family and business?

It’s a little crazy busy - I work from home and take care of my two kids Luka now 8 years old and Stella is 6 years old. They are a little older now so, it’s much easier but, still constant attention I do have more time to work now that they are in school and thankfully in summer camp so, I can work 6-8 hours min. a day - but, usually I start my day very early to work when the house is quiet and also continue to late night. Launching a tech start-up is so much work similar to taking care of kids...but, overseeing a team of developers, designers and also working on the PR level, setting up partnerships, advertisers etc...it’s really endless.

What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?

My advice for mom entrepreneurs is to join a networking group - This way it takes you out once in a while and you can meet other women with businesses. This really helped me stay focused on my work and not just identify myself as a ‘mom’ but, rather a business women with a family. It’s also just lovely to dress up, enjoy appetizers and many events have a great panel discussions so, try to also become a speaker in your local chapter to start talking about your business to a wider audience. It’s key to receive feedback and support from your peers.

How do your market your business?

I’m currently use ‘word of mouth’ and market using ‘Instagram’ as the main social media outlet.

Mommy Monday:: Susan Hagen

Your name and business name:

My name is Susan Hagen and my business name is LISU Wedding and Handmade Jewellery. I also sell on Etsy.

When did you start your business?

I started my business in April 2012 after doing an online business course from the London Jewellery School on how to sell online.  I had a part-time job at the time and my jewellery business is part-time too. I have been making jewellery for over twelve years now and I still enjoy making it.

What services/products do you offer?

I offer a bespoke jewellery service where you can tell me what you want me to make for you and I also make tiaras, hair fascinators, necklaces, pendant necklaces, wire wrapped pendant necklaces, wire weaved pendant necklaces, wire wrapped rings, bracelets and rhinestone quartz watch bracelets.

How do you balance family and business?

As I am working from home in my business, and both of my children are grown up now, I just work around things that need to be done.  I do not have a set timetable each day for what I do.  I tend to post on Instagram first thing in the morning and mostly every day.  When I have made new items of jewellery I try to photograph the items straight away but this does not always happen.  I then put the items of jewellery on my website and Etsy.  I sometimes work on my business at night and also at the weekend depending on what I am making.

What advice do you have for other mom entrepreneurs?

Basically if you have an idea of what to make and you think that it will sell then just go for it. You will not know if you will succeed or not unless you try.

How do your market your business?

I market my business mostly on social media now and Pinterest.  When I first started my business I had adverts in quite a few magazines such as Vogue, Craftseller and a few other jewellery making magazines.  I was never sure if this helped me make a sale or not and it was also getting too expensive doing the adverts. Now I use Instagram, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest to market my business.
