Each week, MamaBreak asks the same questions of a mom-preneuer! This week we are talking to the owner of burlap & grace. We reviewed burlap & grace HERE, and they even sponsored a giveaway!
burlap & grace makes some amazing headbands, hair clips, and hats . . . and all at prices we can afford!
1. What inspired you to create burlap & grace?
--The desire to have my own small business. The problem is I have so
many ideas and passions that it is hard to pin one down but for now, at
this point in our life this fell into place nicely. Burlap & grace
is actually a event planning business and while waiting to fill my
calender with events I started making hair accessories!!
2. How do you balance work and family?
can not lie..its difficult. On my really busy days I really try to take
breaks often to sit and read a book or have a mini picnic with my kids. I
even let them climb up and help me sometimes....the key is not to lose
focus on the reason you started your business. Mine was and is to be
home with my kids.
3. What advice would you give to other women starting their own company?
--Don't give up!!! There are some lows
sometimes but the highs are so worth hanging in there! And stay
connected with people that you meet..I have met some amazing people
4. Who has inspired you most in creating burlap & grace?
--There are so many people that have supported
me and inspired me to follow my dreams...my husband, parents, family,
many friends but I have to say I have had a couple of really dear
friends of mine that have really..I guess I would say "made" me do this
haha! One that helped me start up b&g and gave me so many
encouraging talks and a few hard ones that set me straight! (gotta love a
good friend like that!!) and one friend that has stood by me through
many things in my adult life.
