Blog > Business Mums' Spotlight - The Little Lilypad
Posted By Rebecca Kimber
The Little Lilypad Company is a website built by parents for parents. Donna has two daughters, one 6 years old and the other only a month old! At the heart of the Lilypad is family, and this is the foundations that the business has been built upon.
Donna, how did you come up for the idea for The Little Lilypad Co.?
When I had my first daughter and subsequently found myself in a baby boom with my friends, I started looking everywhere to find wonderful different little gifts for their babies, children and other family members. Not the usual high street mass produced items but beautiful, unique, handmade and maybe even unusually old fashioned gifts that had been painted, glued and lovingly crafted ...by real people!
Don't be afraid to ask for help and network network network - get online and join forums such as Mumsclub where you can meet like minded business women. Often, they have been there before you and I've found mums in business are always happy to help another Mumpreneur!
The useability and support is also, very definately, a huge part of our reason to use Create, the service is constantly being update with new features, and I have found them to be very supportive of their clients.
