What or who inspired you to start your business?
With a background in helping children and families, a desire to build my own business, a noticeable gap in the market and a bit of an eco-mission behind me, New & Green went from and idea to a company in 2007.
What are your most popular products or services?
Our most popular programs are our Cloth Diaper 101 Workshops and our Diaper Tester Kits. Hands down, our most popular diaper is the Easy-Fit Cloth Diaper.
What do you love most about what you do?
I get to choose how to spend my time each minute of the day. I get to make a difference in other peoples’ lives. My company provides meaningful productive roles for other moms.
How do you balance being a mom and entrepreneur?
It`s hard! Staying flexible and carving out time for business and family (sepeartely) is key. Childcare allows me to laser focus on working so I can get things done more efficiently.
What single piece of advice would you give moms starting their business?
Plan it out like it’s already big, then you’ll be in the right place when you get there!
What is your biggest fear?
Honestly, working so hard that I miss the little things that happen each day with my kids.
What is your motto?
Currently, it is “keep calm & carry on”. Life is hectic these days and this helps me to sail smoothly.
What makes you GO?
Coffee. And the bootcamp I just enrolled in 😉
