Mom Carey Grund launched Smilegram Paper last November. The online shop offers fun and unique stationery products for children.
According to Grund, she balances family and business by creating happiness in her home. “Happy kids equal a happy Mom,” she said. She also said that she tries to manage her time effectively by choosing to tackle one task at a time. “When I combine work time and kid time I am not good at either. I have learned to have fun time, play time, elementary school homework time, pre-school craft time and when all that is done it’s get down to business time. Sometimes that means really late nights but it’s all worth it!” she said.
Grund said that believing in yourself is key for mom entrepreneurs to be successful. “All the days you think you CAN’T look in the mirror, smile, and say yes I CAN! The power of a smile is what I live by every day,” she said.
