My daughter's birthday will not be as fab as it was if not for the colorful intricately designed birthday tutu outfit that she wore during her party at school. I was the happiest mom to see my birthday girl having a blast with her classmates and teachers.
I have Cheryl Joy Caruz to thank for! She's the 30-year-old mompreneur behind Cheriane Collection, which she started January of 2012. Cheriane Collection is an online store that sells customized birthday tutu outfit, pettiskirts and tutu dresses. She is my Nanaygosyante for the month of October.
It must be tough being a mom and an entrepreneur at the same time, how do you juggle those roles well?
It's not easy but all you need to do is to focus, proper time management and enjoying my constant responsibility for them.
Most mompreneurs I have featured here are hands-on moms, are you, too?
Yes I am, I wake up early (5:30am) to cook their breakfast and prepare them to school, I don’t want them to be late for school and work.
What activities do you usually do with your children?
Singing and teaching them new action songs. We also love to play offline and online games.
How do you involve your husband in your business or does he let you do your own thing?
I would say 50% involved, he is my master cutter & sewer. His family business is a tailoring shop, named after him and still serving for 30 years now in our city. I also consult him for possible future business.
Do you still have date nights despite you being busy in the business and him as an LGU employee?
Yes, we love to go to coffee shops and watch movies; though not regularly. But we make sure to spend time together. But usually, when I just want to relax on my own, I play the piano.
Any advice to mommies who want to enter the world of mompreneurship?
