What inspired you to start your business?
One fall day November 2016 Lindy and I (Anna) were having a playdate over some vino, watching our kids running around and looked at each other and said: “imagine if our beautiful clean slate children grew up with a foundation of self-love, mindfulness, affirmations… imagine they didn’t have to do the personal development work in the 30’s and 40’s but it was something they grew up with?!! WOW!" We started researching affirmation cards for kids and what we envisioned in our mind didn’t exist - so we decided to create it!
What do you love most about being an entrepreneur?
There are two things that I love MOST about being an entrepreneur!
First, bringing to the world a product that is meaningful, purposeful and has the power to create impact in someone's life if practiced daily!
Secondly, I love the flexibility to work from where I want, this is why we were able to sell everything we own in Ontario and explore BC for the year!
What's something you wish you'd known at the start?
They say that ignorance is bliss right? I'm so happy we knew nothing about starting a physical product based business at the start! We solve problems as they arise and are a solution oriented team - because this entrepreneurial ride sure is a rollercoaster!
What advice do you have for those thinking of starting their own business?
Our advice - JUST GO FOR IT! There will never be a perfect time to start your own business, especially if you're a parent! Be open to learning, growing, pivoting, and enjoying the journey! You got this!
Thank you to Lindy and Anna - we have loved hearing your story and collaborating with you over the years and are so excited to watch you and your brand continue to grow!
