Rebecca Rabson is the mom behind SmartSeat Chair Protectors by pb&j Discoveries. The company began selling the waterproof, stain resistant and machine washable cover for upholstered dining room and kitchen chairs in August 2010.
The covers protect like a vinyl seat cover, but are made from a soft and comfortable fabric. According to Rabson, the SmartSeat has a tailored and attractive fit that makes it the perfect way to discreetly protect your chairs from stains and spills.
Like most moms who work from home, Rabson said she feels it is a luxury to set her own schedule. “I do my best to work when the boys are at school and to be a mom when they are home. That plan doesn’t always work out though,” she admits.
“I’ve learned to cut myself some slack and I try not dwell on the days when things are hectic and I wish that there were two of me. Instead, I focus on being grateful for the amazing blessings that I’ve been given — two healthy, happy and energetic boys and a business that I love!”
When talking to other aspiring mom entrepreneurs, Rabson encourages them to just get going. “There are always reasons why you shouldn’t pursue your own business,” she said. “Focus on the reasons why you should! And take steps, even if they are small one, to make it happen.”
