Hi! My name is Rebecca and I’m the Momboss behind Kasual Kiddo Handmade. But firstly and foremost I’m a Mom to one (soon to be two), and wife to my amazing husband David.
Where to start?!? I’m passionate about so many things. You could say I always have too many eggs in my basket. Some of the top things I love are travelling, sewing, organizing, planning, and momming it hardcore! Really, I’m a creative junkie with an OCD problem.
WHAT IS YOUR BUSINESS AND WHAT LEAD YOU TO START IT?
My business is called Kasual Kiddo Handmade and I started it right after the birth our son Blake in 2015. He was a drooly baby and it made more sense to change Bandana Bibs multiple times a day than an entire outfit. In the beginning I started out with Bandana Bibs and more products were added to the line as time went on. Now I have Bandana Bibs, Stroller Blankets, Teething Clips, a varietly of shirts, and custom Gift Sets.
WHO INSPIRES YOU?
I get inspiration from so many people. I’ve surrounded myself with so many amazingly talented women that there’s no shortage of inspiration and motivation. I am really lucky to live in a community where people are there to cheer you on and help you out when needed.
WHAT ARE SOME OF YOUR TIPS TO MAINTAIN A WORK-LIFE BALANCE?
Planning and organizing is how I keep a work-life balance. I find it very important to not only schedule in my work and appointments, but to also schedule in fun activities to do with my son & family, and some personal time for myself. My To-Do List is forever evolving – but that’s a good thing as it’s not all work.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR OTHER MOMS WANTING TO START A BUSINESS?
Firstly, it’s not a hobby. Secondly, it’s a lot of work so have a plan. Thirdly, spend your time wisely, a work-life balance is key to being successful in both areas.
IF YOU HAD AN EXTRA HOUR TODAY, WHAT WOULD YOU DO WITH IT?
Oh gosh, this would be a dream….but I’d likely spend it differently every day. Some days I need an extra hour market prepping, other days I’d like an extra hour of sleep, or maybe even just getting one or two more things checked off my never ending list.
