Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in clothing but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Kelly Garcia, Owner and Creator of Momper Romper LLC., located in Las Vegas, NV, USA.
What's your business, and who are your customers?
Momper Romper is the original 'mom-romper' that evolved into an essential one-piece jumpsuit for everyBody- short, petite, curvy, and sizes for kids of all ages.
Tell us about yourself
I've always been very passionate about living intentionally to reduce waste while practicing a minimalist lifestyle. Five years ago, when I was pregnant with my daughter, it boggled my mind that maternity clothes are used and tossed at an alarming rate. I knew there had to be an alternative to traditional maternity wear. The Momper Romper is a long-lasting, one-piece to be worn all nine months of maternity and beyond.
What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?
We have over 5,000+ happy customers, and growing every day.
What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?
Work-life balance can be especially difficult. I have a family that depends on me, which leads to being pulled in many directions juggling work and running the daily mom marathon, often simultaneously. To combat burnout, I try and turn off my computer and emails by 6 pm and focus on quality time at home. We also travel the country together promoting the business, which has been a good balance of work and play.
What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?
Don't sweat the small stuff! I remember in the beginning; I would spend so much time perfecting a single IG post. Instead, focus on serving your customers. Make sure you are delivering the best presentation and that your product exceeds customers' expectations.
