Sisters, Martina Delaney and Suzanne Browne, founders of Clevamama.™

I never really set out to be an entrepreneur. Instead I set out to be successful. Success to me means understanding the value of things, not the price. The value of hard work, honesty, trustworthiness, courageousness, belief and boldness is priceless. So whether you are a stay at home mom or a business tycoon, you will only be a success if you work damn hard at it.

My top 5 tips for success are:

  1. You need a good idea and a reason for that good idea. When you have your idea you need to turn it into a plan. This plan will be the measure of your success and will become instrumental to your success. If you fail to prepare you should also prepare to fail. Continue reading

They’re Mom, Incorporated: Suzanne Browne and Martina Delaney

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, Mom, Incorporated had the opportunity to interview Suzanne Browne and Martina Delaney, the founders of Clevamama™, a mom-owned baby products company based out of Ireland that recently entered the American market. 

 

MomIncorporated: How did you get started with Clevamama™ and how has it evolved into the business it is today?

Suzanne: Established in 2003, in the midst of three very small babies, very little sleep and a conveyor belt of feeding and changing, we had what you might call a “light bulb” moment. That moment led to the creation of a small family run online baby website where we sold third party baby products from our own homes.

Although our online shop was successful, it wasn’t long before we began to realise just how lucrative the nursery industry was. People are always going to have babies and the nursery industry is one of few that actually thrives in a recession!

As Moms, our primary goal was to develop an honest brand with pure products that would make parents lives that bit easier, safer and healthier.  Hence the birth of Clevamama™ which coincided with the birth of my second baby!  Designed by Moms for Moms, Clevamama™ products are creative, practical and above all, affordable. With over 40 products in our range we are proud to say we are now an international brand of choice.  Continue reading
