Tell us about your business and why you decided to open.
We are two creative moms who decided to start filming and posting our ideas to youtube. We just started doing this in January and have had a few wonderful months of creating content to share! We post everything from DIY decor, kid activities and recipes!
What business was like before COVID-19?
Before COVID-19, the two of us would meet up and bounce ideas off of each other for things we wanted to share and create. We would get together and film videos to share on our YouTube channel!
What has business been like since the outbreak of COVID-19?
Unfortunately we are having a difficult time getting new content our to our followers/subscribers because we aren't able to get together to film content or collaborate in person. Another challenge is that we know it is difficult for people to get supplies right now for recipes, let alone for the "extras" like DIY Decor and kid activities. As moms who work and have children, we are now working from home, while watching our children full time which leaves little to no extra time for our passion projects.
How will this impact your business long term?
We were just in the new stages of our business, trying to build a follower base and create exciting content, and since we are slowing down momentum a bit we are hoping that it doesn't loose us any followers. We are trying our very best to create content that will support people during this time in the world and bring a little joy to each person looking to still be creative.
How can people help?
For any parents looking for ideas to do with their kids during this time at home, we share ideas in our instagram stories to support children learning. People can help by sharing our ideas with anyone who is interested, and following along our YouTube channel, blog, and/or Instagram for content.
