How long have you been a nanny, or how long were you a nanny? I have been a nanny for about 7 years now. I work mostly temporary position via word of mouth and internet.
What is a highlight of your nanny career? The day I was asked to be a former charges god-mother. I was speechless!
How did you come up with the idea for your service? I have noticed a lot of nannies struggle in this area so I wanted to make it easy for others to plan their days.
What is your level of monetary investment and have you seen a profit? My investment is very minimal and I intend to keep my service free so there will be no profit in it for me.
What is the purpose of your service? The purpose to to help nannies plan activities for their charges.
How has the nanny industry received your product/service – i.e. what has been the feedback you’ve received? I just launched and have so far been received very well!
What words of wisdom do you have for others, who may have a product/service and wish to expand its market? Just do it. I have been dreaming of doing this for a couple of years now but was afraid that it wouldn’t be received well. I launched a few days ago and have seen so much support already!
What do you wish you had known early on, that you’ve learned going through this process?You have to make time and plan to do it. As a nanny, I am very busy and planning takes a lot of time so does nannying. I have to schedule the time to do.
