Today’s Mommy Monday segment features Monique from Lil’ Sugarplum. Monique operales her online business while being a stay at home mom. The site features handmade baby, toddler and girls hair clips and has been open since May 2006.
According to Monique, she finds balance by only operating her business part time. “I only let it grow so much because I don’t want it interfering with my family life,” she said. When her children are asleep or in school is when she carves out time to work.
Monique really enjoys what she does, and she said that is important. “If you’re looking to start your own business, make sure you find something that you are passionate about. If you find something that you are mildly interested in, you won’t want to stick with it. When you’re passionate, it doesn’t feel like work,” she added.
First time customers can get a free $8 hair clip of their choice when they spend $25. Just leave a note at checkout, do not add to the cart. This offer expires on March 15.
