New Business Mum – Lisa Palmer

Mum in Business

The lovely Lisa from Colourful Babies is on the blog this morning; You can also find Lisa on her blog or on twitter! Please do get in touch with her if you’d like any more info on her gorgeous colourful products 🙂

Who are you?
My name is Lisa Palmer, my company is called Colourful Babies

IMG_20120923_170757 What do you do?
Sell baby clothes online

IMG_2316When did you establish your business?
March 2013

IMG_2249What made you start your own business?
I have a daughter (9months now) but when I’m out on the high st looking for clothes for her, everything is either pink, cream or white. I got sick of it and started to look for baby grows in different colours.  So I though why not sell these, as there must be other parents that are sick of boy wear blue and girl wear pink.

What do you love about working for yourself?

Not having to answer to anyone.  Being my own boss, controlling my own destiny

IMG_2277Is there anything you do not like about working for yourself?
I have all the responsibility and fears for the business if it fails. The stress of juggling my home life with my business life

IMG_2284Is there anything you would go back and do differently if you could? 
I would spend more time researching my market and business plan.

IMG_2297 What advice would you give to a Mum considering starting her own business? 
I’d tell them it will be harder than expected, that it will not allow you more time with your family because it is all consuming. Get lots of support from friends and family. And then go for it!
