Why'd you start your own company?
Because I want to be able to work my own hours while my kids are little.
All our friends are having babies, what should we give them?
I think the best gift is a spa day where you watch the baby. Generally, a new mom will be overwhelmed with baby clothes and stuff - so something nice for her will be pleasant surprise and a nice change.
What's the business scene here like?
There are a lot of great small/independent businesses in this area that really strive to support other local businesses and designers.
