Mumpreneur Feature – Meghan

Mum in Business

Meghan from Apricot Designs is my Mumpreneur on the blog this morning! Check out Meghan’s website – she makes the most beautiful hats :O)

Who are you?
Meghan Del Monte – owner of Apricot Designs

What do you do?
I design handknitted baby knitwear

When did you establish your business?

Autumn 2010
What made you start your own business?
Every time I knitted an idea, people kept asking if I could make them one!
What do you love about working for yourself?
It’s exciting being the one to make the decisions and seeing all your hard work turn into something really special. I love working on new designs, and I work with some of the country’s most fabulous knitters.

Is there anything you do not like about working for yourself?
Sometimes I miss having someone else to bounce ideas off.  Plus the late nights!

Is there anything you would go back and do differently if you could?
I’d probably think harder about childcare options, it’s not easy looking after little ones and running a successful business at the same time.

What advice would you give to a Mum considering starting her own business?

Make sure you are passionate about what you are doing, it will keep you going when you hit a rough patch. Do something you really love, and people will believe in you. And make sure you still find time for a cup of tea and a slice of cake every now and again!
