Interested in starting your own entrepreneurial journey in baby products but unsure what to expect? Then read up on our interview with Robin Barber, Founder of The Baby Fairy Shoppe, located in Chardon, OH, USA.

What's your business, and who are your customers?

The Baby Fairy Shoppe - Online Gift Giving Subscription where you can send anonymous gifts to someone that is expecting a baby throughout their pregnancy. My customer list is very broad; it for anyone that knows someone that is having a baby or someone that wants to give to someone that is unfortunate and is in need.

Tell us about yourself

Well, our friends had a hard time getting pregnant years ago, and we decided we needed to do something special; we created the Baby Fairy. Then I decided in 2020 that I would love to start a business, and we created The Baby Fairy Shoppe. What motivates me is knowing that when I send out a package, it's going to put a smile on someone's face!!!

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

That I started it, and I'm still going!! It has been a HUGE challenge, but I believe in it!!!

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

Never being able to shut my mind off has been a big challenge for me. Also, asking myself, "what am I doing wrong?" Also, my biggest issue is not asking a question.

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Follow your Dream.
  2. Keep working hard to get what you want.
  3. Have a support team and ask for HELP!!

Where can people find you and your business?
