SHOP FROM PARENTS RUNNING A BUSINESS AROUND FAMILY LIFE
Lucy Tapper started creating and developing her unique product ideas in her head whilst watching her young children play daily in their greenhouse. Lucy set out with no financial backing, no contacts and a sketchbook full of ideas, to become one of the most creative and talented illustrators & product designers in the UK.
FromLucy's Top tip
If there is one piece of advice I try to always adhere to, it's to always make time for family.
Work hard? Yes. Work every waking hour? No. Making time to be with my children is the priority, and makes for a happier healthier mind and a more harmonious relationship between work and home. This in turn leads to me being raring to go with product ideas and new illustrations, sometime too many for us to keep up with!
I also make sure that members of the FromLucy team who have children can leave work at school pick up time too. I really do believe that a proper balance is the key to a happy life. I don't think many people look back upon their life and say "I wish I worked more"!
But all that said, even if I am not at my computer or sketchbook, my brain is always ticking away with new ideas. Half the battle of running a successful illustrated gift business is being prepared and ready mentally to then transfer those ideas to paper and screen!
