Well, it’s already Monday again my friends! A lot of people hate Mondays, but I like to look at them as a fresh start or a new beginning. Plus, it’s time for Mom Boss Monday! This Monday is especially exciting because it’s Eclipse Day! We live right at the tail end of the path of totality where it’s supposed to be dark for over two minutes. I hope that it really does drop the temperature a few degrees!
This week I’m featuring Liz, owner of the Gold Palm Boutique. She sells the cutest ‘Mamarazzi’ tees! Read on to hear the story behind Gold Palm Boutique, then go like her page and show some support!
Tell me a little bit about what you sell:
The Gold Palm Boutique is a clothing store for the modern day family. Currently our inventory is limited to our popular Mamarazzi shirt. However, we have an incredible lineup of other items coming out in the upcoming months. And I am super excited to see our brand expand!
How did it all begin?
As a mom, comfy clothes are a necessity. And I absolutely love cute shirts with writing on them. I had always dreamed of starting a small online boutique. And after talking with one of my friends who owns her on own online store, I decided it was time to take the leap!
Tell me about you! Where are you from? What do you love? How many kids do you have?
I feel like I have lived almost everywhere!!! I grew up in Connecticut, went to college in New Hampshire and moved to North Carolina with my husband for five years. We now live in Arizona and absolutely love it! I feel completely blessed that I have had the opportunity to live in various parts of the country and have met some incredible friends. We have two beautiful daughters, Olivia (2.5 years), Ava (5 months) and a fur baby, Maddie (chocolate lab, 6 years). They are our entire world. Besides being a mom, my other passions are baking and planning parties.
What is your ‘why’? (the biggest reason you do what you do)
My daughters are the biggest reason I am doing what I am. And as cliche as this sounds, I want to prove to them that you can achieve your dreams and make them a reality. When I was growing up it was ingrained in me that I needed to go to college to be successful. However I think the world is changing and its time we learned to change with it. As my dad always said ‘the only constant in life in change’.
How long have you been in business?
The Gold Palm Boutique opened it’s doors in late summer (of 2017).
Who is your biggest supporter?
My husband has always supported me in everything I do. He is the best soundboard for my ideas and always gives the best advice.
When my girls are playing or just being silly, I am always snapping pictures. I never want to miss a moment. So for me, our Mamarazzi shirt is my favorite item because it describes my life perfectly!
“A learning curve for me was not reaching out to my friends earlier. I have a friend who does lettering – you know the awesome font-like writing?!? Well after I launched, she offered to help create a logo for me. I wish I had done this before I officially launched because the logo she created for me is professional and catchy, much different than the one I originally created.”
