~What is your business’ name?
Nana Pants by Betsy
~What kinds of products or services do you offer?
I specialize in embroidered diapers, along with cute prints and solid color diapers. I also supply Elegant Mommy with wetbags, changing pads, keychain diapers, peepee teepees and doll diapers.
My son and daughter-in-law approached me about 3 years ago, saying they wanted to cloth diaper and would I be able to make them for their first child. I used my daughter’s then 3 month old as a tester and it just grew from there. Up until this fall, I was teaching preschool and doing Nana Pants, but have since gone to Nana Pants full-time.
~How do you balance it all? Family, activities, working from home, etc?
Since I am an empty-nester, I’m fortunate to have the full days and many nights to work on my business. I try to continue to volunteer at my church and preschool.
My daughter, Erin, is now working for me part-time to help me fill orders and supply Elegant Mommy.
~Do you have any advice for other Work At Home Moms?
Family first…kids are only small for a little while and the time goes by so fast. Enjoy them while you can. Since I am technically a SAHGM (Stay at home grandma) and no longer a SAHM, I understand that taking care of a family is hard work, but oh so important.
