Tell Us A Little Something About Yourself
I’m a full time working mum of two little boys
What Inspired You To Start Your Own Business?
I wanted to be able to supply a product to Mums that’s nurtures our children’s beautiful skin whilst being able to work on building a brand and portfolio through creativity and design.
What Does Your Business Offer, And What Makes It Unique?
The Pepikids Snugglesuit is made from 100% merino wool and perfectly designed for comfort with hand and feet mits which can be used or tucked away. The Snugglesuit also breathes beautifully in summer and keep you snug in winter.
What Does Your Journey Look Like?
My cousin designed, sourced and produced the Pepikids Snugglesuit in NZ and we expanded to Australia with our partnership. Since then I’ve had two kids and have a full time role. Therefore I don’t have the time to nurture the business the way it deserves but this product will never go out of fashion.
Did You Always Think You'd Be Doing This?
What Are The Most Rewarding And Challenging Parts Of Your Job And Owning Your Own Business?
You need to be all in or all out. If you’re lucky enough to be all in and can be creative then the possibilities are endless.
Whats Your End Goal? The Moment You'll Know You've Achieved What You Want To?
My end goal is to have Australian kids wearing natural fibres and wearing only the best at an affordable rate. Merino wool is expensive in comparison to cotton.
