What or who inspired you to start your business?
My two young daughters. When I was pregnant with my first (3 years old now) I taught myself to sew because I needed a diaper bag. My friends strongly encouraged me to sell my creations so I launched Facebook page in June 2013…now I have 2,00 fans, sell every week at the St Albert Farmers Market and have goods in 2 retail locations.
What are your most popular products or services?
Limelight Cowl (Hunger Games Inspired) crochet. Buffy Convertible Messenger Bag Set (converts to fit handles of all strollers, wheelchairs and walkers). Stacey Messenger Bag Sets (reversible sling bags).
What do you love most about what you do?
That I can stay at home to raise my two young daughters. Teaching them that with hard work, determination and a positive attitude, you CAN achieve your dreams.
How do you schedule being a mom and entrepreneur?
Learning to be a single mom would have been a challenge enough, but this has also been my first year in business. Schedule? Still working on that!
What single piece of advice would you give moms starting their business?
As Martin Luther King said, “Take the first step in faith. You don’t need to see the whole staircase, just take the first step.”
How do you relax?
Instrumental music is always on in our home. It helps us all. My girls and I do our best to go for a daily walk as well. Exercise and fresh air always help, too.
What place inspires you and why?
There is no “place” that comes to mind….seeing the faces of my daughters every day is inspiration.
What is your biggest fear?
Spiders. Haha. No really….spiders 😉
What is your motto?
Nothing great was ever achieved without enthusiasm.
What motivates you?
Easily, my two greatest blessings in life – my children. 3 years old and 22 months. They are the reason behind everything I do.
What makes you GO?
Right now, it’s knowing that we see 25,000 people every Saturday at the market!
Thanks for sharing Cyndee!
