The Changing Station – Changing the World One Diaper at a Time
Happy Monday, friends! May this week be filled with fresh opportunities and good business deals.
Have you noticed that certain items from the past, that went into oblivion over the years, are making a strong comeback? They are usually more planet-friendly and less health-risky compared to their modern versions we prefer to use today. Cloth diapers are definitely on the list of products that have been revamped and put back on the market to “overthrow” disposable diapers that are causing as much skin rash as damage to the environment.
Jessi Belt, the founder of The Changing Station, our respected member, has a lot to say on the matter. Her lovely daughter, who soon turns 1, was the main inspiration behind her business. Everything about The Changing Station is built upon love, so it’s no surprise that she carefully selects the products sold at the travelling diaper store, as she likes to call it. Dwelling on natural baby care products and super-cute designs fit for every boy or girl, their catalogue offers everything a family with a newborn needs.
We had a brief chat with her for the needs of Members of Enterprise League, but the story goes way beyond it.
Athena was born from Zeus’ head after he suffered a severe headache. How was your company born?
My company is 100% inspired by my daughter. We chose to sell cloth diaper and found out about the modern cloth diaper and I knew there was a need for all families in my area to know more.
With today’s experience, what advice would you give to yourself at your first day as a business owner?
You will hear ‘no’ a lot. Keep going!
