Colleen Baldwin is the mom behind Knitworks. She’s been knitting custom items for babies since 1983.

Some of the products she offers include personalized sweaters, hats, scarves and gifts for infants and children. According to Baldwin, she feels lucky to work from home. Because she’s home, she has access to her work and her family 24/7. That, she said, helps her to balance the two.

She admits that being a mom entrepreneur takes a lot of hard work. However, she encourages others on the same journey. “Work hard, but don’t forget to love and live hard as well.”
