Here at Belly Bandit HQ, a women-owned and operated company, we believe in celebrating the success of all women in business! Our “Moms Who Made It” series is our way of honoring Mompreneurs who inspire us every day.
This week we are thrilled to be featuring Julia Min, founder of TWELVELittle, a company that specializes in fabulously stylish and functional baby bags. Julia channeled her love of design and fashion into the creation of the "perfect baby bag" - made with high quality water resistant fabrics and genuine leather. Personally, we're obsessed with the cactus print - LOVE!
Describe your business philosophy:
Be creative and stay humble.
What inspired you to go into business?
When did you know you, “made it?”
Eeek! I am still not sure if I "Made It," but the first time I saw a random mom in the streets carrying our bag, I was ecstatic. And I’ll never forget our first big order from a large retailer. That is always something to strive for.
Who is your mentor?
What’s your #1 tip for moms interested in starting their own business?
Start small and focus on what you are good at, and don’t be afraid to ask for help. No one is good at everything, so surround yourself with people who can help you.
What does “me” time mean to you?
What‘s on your bedside table?
The 2nd edition of Crazy Rich Asians, and Lean in: Women, Work and the Will to Lead by Sheryl Sangberg. Totally different books, but the funny thing is, they were both recommended by fellow mompreneurs. =)
