Entrepreneur for the last 10 years, and founder of the award winning Mama Designs baby brand, Keira O’Mara shares her tips and advice for Growing your Business on a budget. Packed full of easily actionable tips and advice this business course is in video and worksheet format.
I’m Keira O’Mara. A mum of two with one more on the way and I run Mama Designs, which I established in 2008 when I was on maternity leave with my eldest and came up with an idea for a discreet breastfeeding cover. I was really self conscious feeding in public and looked for a product to buy but was unable to find one. I had just been made redundant, so decided to use my money to set a business up.
Fast forward 10 years and Mama Designs now has a whole range of award winning products for mums and babies. We sell direct to parents, through independent retailers as well as having sold through a few high street names such as John Lewis, Mothercare, Boots. We also export worldwide and sell through retailers in approximately 15 countries. Our Instagram has over 48,000 followers and we have collaborated with lots of influencers and celebrities. Mama Designs has been featured in almost every national newspaper in the UK, has been on national TV 5 times, and has won or been a finalist in over 50 awards.
I have been asked so many times over the years about creating something like this, so after celebrating our 10th year in business I decided I would. I really wanted to make it affordable and therefore accessible to as many people as possible. We are always told to invest in ourselves but this can be hard when you are a start up and money is tight. I have been mentoring other business owners for the last year and I absolutely love it, so this was a natural progression.
The idea with this course content is that it works for you whether you are just starting out or a little further down the line. You can discover some of the tips and advice that I have learnt in my 10 years running Mama Designs. I hope you find it useful!
