Ulanda Celestine is the mom behind fab-U-tique, a new business she launched in January of this year. Fab-U-tique offers unique boutique style clothing, trendy jewelry, designer inspired handbags, fashion accessories and personalized gifts.
Celestine admits that balancing business and family is difficult, but doable. “Not only do I have two businesses (WorkFromHomeOnTheInternet.com and fab-U-tique), I also work outside the home, workout regularly, and have a husband and two kiddos to take care of,” she said.
“I make sure my family’s immediate needs are met first, however I do make sure I have scheduled time as well to work my business. Part of the weekends are reserved for family time while a smaller portion is used to tie up loose (business) ends from the week,” she added.
As an experienced business owner, Celestine encourages other mom entrepreneurs to stay consistent and committed no matter what struggles they face. “It takes a lot of time, energy, effort and resources to get a business up and running and keep it going.”
