Five words that describe your business
Simple, Efficient, Organized, Yummy & Fresh
Describe your business
At Simply Supper we provide all the ingredients for you to create meals and we take the guesswork out of it. What is better than providing homemade, nutritious meals quickly and without much labor or thought? Simply pre-assemble your meals for the month in our store, and then cook at home using our simple instructions. No more stressing about creating a nutritious meal and worrying about the variety, time and thought that needs to go into it.
What do you love most about what you do?
I love that our business brings families together and that we are able to help people either don’t enjoy cooking or just don’t have the time to put a healthy and yummy meal on the table so that can concentrate on the important things like what happened at school that day or how their spouse day was.
How do you balance being a mom and entrepreneur?
Very carefully…things are crazy in our house. We run from the time we get up until we fall asleep and I rely on my day timer heavily to remind me where to be when.
What single piece of advice would you give moms starting their business?
Make your family your priority over everything, no matter how busy your business is, you need to have a constant commitment to your family. Mine is no work Sundays!
How do you relax?
I love a good movie. One of my favorite things to do is go to a movie in the theatre, eating popcorn and peanut m&m’s.
What place inspires you and why?
I LOVE New York City – we love baseball, food and the theatre and NYC is the best place to go for all 3. When mommy and daddy need a little refresher, NYC is our getaway of choice.
What is your biggest fear?
Not spending enough time with my family. I try and spend every extra minute I have tapped into my family, but I always have this little fear that it is still not enough.
What motivates you?
Lists…lists motivate me. I have a list for everything, grocery list, to do list, packing list, diaper bag list…I love list and I LOVE crossing things off my list.
What makes you GO?
It is probably the same answer most say, but it is my kids. The smiling faces, the melt downs in Walmart, the mess in the living room, the piles of beautiful artwork and the uneaten food at the supper table…it all makes me go. I strive to give my kids the best life I can, love them as much as a can and teach them all that I can so that they can grow up and love their life!
