We are beyond excited to announce that we were chosen by The Mom Economy and Shopify to participate at the Mother's Mercado in New York City on May 4th, 2019!
We are honored to share this experience with a fantastic group of mompreneurs. These mom-owned and operated businesses vary across industries such as fashion, home design, wellness and more.
Not long after my sister Claudia and I started artTECA,I became pregnant with my son Leonardo. I was living in Los Angeles and Claudia in Miami, so it was already a challenge being in two different cities, and now I was going to add a baby to the mix! Shortly after Leo was born my husband and I made the decision to move to Miami where both my family and my business were based.
I quickly realized the importance of a good support system. Surrounding myself with my encouraging and helpful family and having the support of my hands-on husband, has helped exponentially in balancing mom-life with running the business. It has been quite a journey being a mom and an entrepreneur, especially because I learned how to do both for the first time simultaneously. However, when the going gets tough, I think of how my son can grow up admiring me the same way I've always admired my mom, who was also a working-mom (and is now the best grandma to Leonardo ☺️).
So we invite you to come and join us on May 4th at Showfields NYC and meet all these wonderful businesses that are owned by incredible, hard-working and inspiring moms.
We are so grateful for the non-profit The Mom Economy and Shopify (who actually is our e-commerce platform) for this wonderful initiative and this amazing opportunity to support businesses like ours and be a part of something so special.
Hope to see you all in a couple of weeks!
