MOM ON THE STREET
Our very own Shivani Gupta, Sama CEO, was featured on The Family Groove’s Mom On The Street series! Here is what she and a few other moms had to say!
Welcome to “Mom on the Street” (ya know, like “Man on the Street”) by Family Groove. Each month, we’ll be asking moms just like you for a slice of their sage advice, insider tips or tried-and-true wisdom in the hopes that their unique brand of mothering inspires, assuages, calms, strengthens and even amuses you.
This month’s question:
What are you looking forward to this fall?
|Blakeley Smart is the founder of Bronzed Envy (www.bronzedenvy.com), a mobile airbrush tanning franchise. Here’s what this Round Rock, Texas, mother of two has to say:
“Fall is such a great time of the year for my family. School starts again, [there are] new teachers, kids have a schedule, and Mom gets some much-needed work done. My youngest will be starting kindergarten this year, so I’m really looking forward to the excitement that comes with that, but it’s topped with a bit of sadness knowing my last little chickadee is leaving the nest. So for me, this fall brings about a new chapter of my life. After a hot, chaotic yet fun summer, come fall, it’s an exciting time for me as well to set new goals with my business and take it to an all-new level!”
|Laurie Penix is the creator and co-founder of Zomm (www.zomm.com), a keychain-sized wireless leash with call notification and personal safety features for Bluetooth-enabled phones.
Here is what this Tulsa, Okla., mother of three has to say:
“Most people are surprised to hear that I love the outdoors. The warmer months are great, for obvious reasons, but I also love watching the seasons change to the fall. I spend a lot of time at the lake enjoying the sun, fishing and relaxing. The best part has to be the fall sunsets; they are so beautiful.”
|Shivani Gupta is the co-owner of Sama Baby (www.samababy.com), makers of luxury organic cotton clothing for babies and toddlers. Here’s what this Houston, Texas, mom-to-be has to say:
“I am looking forward to creating a wonderful eco-nursery for the newest addition to my family. For us, we have learned that airing out products when you get them is very important—in order to make sure all the chemicals are released and not trapped in the nursery, which could be harmful for your baby. For us, we really believe that going green is an easy choice, and there are so many products out there. We have looked at many other products, from organic mattresses to wonderful wooden toys, and are able to find them at great prices, and in wonderful designs. We are even looking into no-VOC paint as well as recycled wood for the crib—as we think about the environment in every aspect. Going green is so easy in today’s age—and there are so many great ideas and sites on how to be a better environmentalist while thinking about your child! At Sama Baby, we have been very excited in creating organic cotton clothing for little ones—and this fall we are featuring our latest product: our organic cotton denim line, which is super stylish, comfortable and affordable. For us, fall is a great season to stay warm, happy and enjoy the beautiful colored leaves. We love the new season and what it brings for everyone.”
