Alret is the kindest, sweetest person I know. And her gorgeous little boys are simply adorable. Her creativeness blows my mind and I love seeing the fruits of her labour.
- Tell me a bit about yourself
I am a creative by nature. As a young girl I spent the holidays revamping my room and creating new ideas. I studied Graphic Design and Video Production and worked in the film industry. When we started a family I couldn’t work the long crazy hours of the film industry so I started working from home doing Graphic Design and editing. Today I am a mom of 2 boys.
- Where did your business idea come from
When my second son was born at the beginning of 2017 I was constantly looking for décor ideas and new trends. I started making things for my baby room and my newborn. A few people asked me where did I buy it from and realize that there is a need for more creative but yet affordable baby accessories. Because I am a designer I couldn’t sell anything without a quirky logo, so Mookie was born.
- How do you juggle mom life and your business
By the grace of God. I found that the more things you have to do the greater your capacity becomes. What also helps me is to have a routine. Then, a lot happens at night when the kids are asleep.
- What do you do to relax?
- If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
Italy; I would love to see the countryside and sit at a cobblestone street café drinking Champagne
- What advice would you give to other moms wanting to venture out on a business idea / opportunity
Don’t let fear of failure stop you. You will never know if your idea will be a success if you don’t take a risk and try it.
- What is your best “mom moment”
When my eldest boy is doing something funny and my youngest is laughing out loud.
