Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Connie Chow, Founder of DailyCaring, located in San Francisco, CA, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
DailyCaring.com is a website and daily email newsletter that supports families who are caring for older adults, often a parent or spouses. We provide support through practical tips and advice that solve daily caregiving challenges.
Even with the convenience of Google, finding helpful information about everyday caregiving is still a major pain point for families. At DailyCaring, we have an insider’s perspective on caregiving and a background in technology. That means we know how to connect the dots to find useful and trustworthy senior care tips, advice, and resources and make that information easily searchable and understandable.
Tell us about yourself
I was a hands-on caregiver for my grandmother for 20 years, so I know exactly how challenging, overwhelming, and all-consuming caring for an older adult can be. I’ve also met countless caregivers over the years and what I hear over and over again is how hard daily life can be and how alone they feel.
Many family caregivers feel like there’s nowhere to turn for support and struggle to find the information that will actually help make life better and easier. These caregivers and the older adults they care for need and deserve more, which is exactly why I started DailyCaring and what keeps me motivated.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
I’m proud to have created a business that leverages the power of the internet to provide support to millions of caregivers and older adults.
What's one of the hardest things that come with being a business owner?
It’s a constant challenge to have your time, energy, and attention pulled in so many different directions, so being able to prioritize and focus are essential skills.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Know your audience inside and out so you can provide value and solve real problems. Don’t be afraid to experiment and constantly test, learn, and adjust. And be persistent because gaining traction can take longer than you’d like.
