Hi Tatiana,

 

Tell us about your business and the type of products you sell?

I have recently launched my business which I’ve been working on it since February.   I import and sell toys.  My focus is educational toys and currently I have wooden toys, as I find them ideal for children. I am a certified teacher and I used to be an early years practitioner, so based on my experience I try to find toys that I believe children would enjoy playing with whilst learning.

 

 

How did you come up with the idea and what motivated you to go for it?

I wanted to spend more time with my family so I tried to think outside of the box.  My husband was the one who motivated me and supported me all those months whilst I was setting everything up.

 

What is your best selling product?

The pull-along fox! It’s an absolutely adorable fox that doubles as a pull-along toy and a shape-sorter. It is ideal to help with toddlers’ fine motor skills, colour and shape recognition!

 

 

What do you love about running your own business and what do you find hard?

I love searching for the products and looking for toys that are a combination of cute, fun and educational!  I also enjoy creating promotional images and getting creative.  I find the admin the hardest, it does need to be none though!

 

 

What surprising lessons have you learned along the way?

How much work and time goes into setting up a small business. I wasn’t expecting it to take this long.

 

Do you have a favourite app or work tool you think everyone should know about?
I love using Canva to promote my products on social media! So simple and it allows you to get very creative! Makes my life much easier!
How do you define success?

Living a happy life doing something you love.

 

 

What has been a particular highlight for you since starting your business?

The moment I realised I made my first sale!

 

What’s next for your business?
To make more sales and find more amazing toys to sell.
What’s the best advice you’ve ever been given?

To accept myself as I am.

 

What advice would you give someone who was thinking about setting up their own business?
To be patient and prepare for setbacks, but it is worth it!
What is your favourite Social Media platform and how has it helped in your success? 
Instagram! It has helped me define my brand.

 

What was your dream job growing up?

Scientist.

 

 

What do you enjoy most about being a part of Mama Tribe?

Knowing that there is a support for like-minded individuals chasing their dreams.
