Business Matters: Twin Cities Mobile Mommy Helps Busy Families
Laura Johnson has a story many parents can relate to on how busy life can get.
“Our house is kind of consumed with toys,” laughed Johnson. “It just gets to be too much.”
The Plymouth resident has three children, ages 6, 4 and 2. And if life weren’t busy enough, she runs a skin-care business out of her home.
To help get her house under control she found a business called Twin Cities Mobile Mommy.
“I needed a fresh set of eyes to come in and be like, ‘no, let’s do this, let’s create a system so that it’s just easier.”
Twin Cities Mobile Mommy Can Relate
Twin Cities Mobile Mommy offers guilt-free help thanks to another mom’s perspective. Anahita Champion started the company because she can relate.
“I hadn’t showered in a few days, I hadn’t done laundry. I was about to go to Target to get some new pieces because I just didn’t want to wash the pieces. Dishes had piled up,” Champion recalled.
That was three years ago when she had a 3-month-old while working from home and planning a wedding.
“I just needed something that could alleviate two hours of time or mental capacity. And that’s kind of where it was born,” said Champion about her business.
“It Always Gets Crazy Before It Gets Better”
Today Champion works to solve problems like Laura’s.
“It always gets crazy, before it gets better. “We’re actually going to take everything out,” said Champion about her organization method to help Laura’s kitchen. “I always get the overwhelmed flushed look whenever I say that.”
Home upkeep is just one of the services Twin Cities Mobile Mommy provides. The business also helps with running errands, planning and preparing for special occasions, outdoor projects and child supervision. And that’s not all.
“I want us to be a sounding board,” said Champion. “So, I’m a mom. There have been sessions where I start for 45 minutes and we just have a cup of coffee and we talk. I want them to pour into me what it is they’re overwhelmed by.”
Twin Cities Mobile Mommy doesn’t provide ride-sharing services for insurance reasons. But if you need more extensive home repairs, the company works to partner with local businesses for discounted rates.
Tips from One Busy Mom to Another
Champion also has tips for when life gets crazy.
“I always say make a list, grab a piece of paper and a pen and just write it all down. Get it out of your brain,” she said.
She says then decide what you should do and what you need help with.
“Which of these tasks can you not be responsible for? I think that is the biggest thing that we don’t do enough of,” said Champion.
Back to Laura’s kitchen, and what was once organized chaos is now just organized.
“It was easy for me to recognize the need,” said Johnson. “I have a ton of mom friends. And I mean this is what we’re all going through, just trying to deal with how to manage the clutter, how to make great play spaces for our kids, how to make our family run smoother.”
