What have been your biggest highlights since starting your own business? I get excited when I see we are growing, sometimes they are little moments in the journey. My first personal photo shoot was a highlight, and our first celebrity mention on Instagram. We recently moved into a warehouse; that was a big highlight. It was a big step as it made the business feel larger. Giving our little car business a ‘garage’ has been a definite highlight. What key advice do you have for other aspiring business mums? I usually tell people I wish I had learned to network earlier. Not just meeting people but you have to do the right networking. No point meeting 60 accountants when you’re selling toy cars. Recently my advice is that being a business owner you don’t switch off at the end of a work day, it’s a full time job and then some. But it is important to have other interests so you recharge. A little like motherhood. Are there any key developments or products in the pipeline that you can share with us? I have a little dream that I have been working on this year. It’s top secret so I don’t want to share the details, but when it happens I think it will make a big difference. I can tell you that we are part of The Little Pop Up Shop and have a new Birthday Club happening. And I am busy finding beautiful products, which I’m always excited to share with everyone. And finally, where can we find you? www.lucaslovesars.com.au www.instagram.com/lucaslovescars www.facebook.com/lucaslovescars
