There is something incredibly unique about Suzelle. She is one of a kind and I love that she owns it. You cannot help but love her immediately! She’s creative, she’s a bargain hunter and she’s one of the nicest people you will ever meet!
Tell me a bit about yourself:
Im a mom of 2. One very busy 3 year old boy and a gorgeous little girl who is 8 months. I’m a stay at home mom, and then have my business in between or is it the other way around?! I am someone that loves playing, being creative, and I get to do that every day.
Where did your business idea / business opportunity come from
I was looking for Afrikaans blocks for my son. You know first baby and you want to be educational and playful all at once and he ate his flash cards. Hey, I was eager for him to learn… So I decided to make Afrikaans blocks for him and YogiBlocks grew from there…
How do you juggle mom life and your business
I took a bit of a break when my little girl was born, but normally in between naps and then once everyone has gone to bed. And then if I get a break, I will paint a block or two, while trying to get that hot coffee in while my kid will play by himself for about 6 minutes. But at the end of the day family is a glass ball and work a bouncy ball. Most of my clients are moms and understand this and I also work it into my lead time. Sometimes blocks will be done sooner but you never know with these little ones what might pop up; so there is 10 days and varnish needs to dry.
What do you do to relax?
Wine, coffee sleep LOL!!! I honestly love playing around with the designs and can get lost in this. But I love a good series and chilling with my friends or hubby. Or read a good book!
If you could go anywhere in the world, where would you go?
An Island – can I dream and say no kids?!!? Just want to read a book, chill and have some us time.
What advice would you give to other moms wanting to venture out on a business idea / opportunity
DO IT!!! START NOW and take photos. Being a bit older, 35, I just realized we can all do it, take the opportunity, play around and do it, what do you have to lose. Don’t say “I should have done it”. Just grab the opportunity.
Where can people follow you / social media accounts?
