(Rachel in our Signature Cut out Jumpsuit - Red.)
Making the career switch from a finance professional to creating designs for interior decor (Urban Lil'), Rachel is a mumpreneur to look out for! What started as a side hustle at home for two years, has now expanded to a full-fledged business, proving that it is never too late to do the things you love, with love.
HOW DO YOU JUGGLE YOUR CAREER, FAMILY AND SOCIAL LIFE?
I delegate and plan my work scope efficiently. I also prioritise and allocate time for the important things. Most importantly, I am present in my kids' lives and spend quality time with them as they grow up really fast.
WHAT IN YOUR LIFE HAS BROUGHT OR GIVEN YOU THE GREATEST SATISFACTION OR FULFILMENT?
Five years ago, I became a mum and an entrepreneur and these are the 2 things in life that I'm madly passionate about. I believe that the sequence of events in my life happen for a reason as every experience helped to build me up to who I am today.
LOOKING BACK, WHAT WOULD YOU HAVE DONE DIFFERENTLY AND WHAT WILL YOU DO AGAIN?
If there's one thing I could change, perhaps I would like to have my kids earlier so that I'll have more energy and time for them.
WHEN THINGS GET TOUGH, HOW DO YOU KEEP YOURSELF GOING?
Knowing that we provide a unique product offering, which turns a house into a home. Believing that I'm growing a brand that is well loved by people.
HOW DO YOU KEEP YOURSELF LOOKING AND FEELING GOOD?
Stay positive and motivated. Beauty radiates from within but of course a little self pampering with pretty things for yourself helps.
Rachel ends this short interview session with her own words of wisdom.
