Today we’d like to introduce you to Bianca Tevez.
Bianca, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
When I became a mother, I realized that as much as my degrees mattered, nothing could take them away from me and that time with my children as infants/toddlers would fly and could not be stopped… it’s true what they say, babies don’t keep. I was fortunate enough to be able to stay home with my son and shortly after making that decision, we found out we were expecting a second baby.
Almost to a fault, I am the kind of person that researches things until I am certain that I have enough information to make a sound decision. This led me to research all things maternity and baby to an extreme and this somehow led me to be the “go-to” for mom advice for many of my friends, and their friends, and their friend’s friends! After multiple people suggested making a blog for all this information, I kept sharing and repeating every time someone was entering their journey into motherhood, I decided to go for it and that’s when biamommy was born. In turn, a beautiful community of mothers has emerged on my page and it has even led me to start my very own children’s swim line Lotus and Sun.
Has it been a smooth road?
Social media is interesting, it’s not smooth as it may seem, there are struggles with opening up your life to strangers, such as receiving criticism or unsolicited advice, etc. but overall, it has been very pleasant for me and I have been able to help many new moms, at least that’s what they tell me . My advice to anyone wanting to pursue being some sort of influence on others whether it be on social media or not is to be genuine 100 percent of the time, be kind, and be patient.
So let’s switch gears a bit and go into your business story. Tell us more about the business.
Starting a business has always been an idea I had bounced around. Once I had my daughter, I realized how hard it was to find matching swimwear that were classic styles and colors. Immediately got to work on creating a product that was lacking in the market. It’s been a great journey and it’s had it’s bumps already but this is only the beginning for us.
It would be great to hear about any apps, books, podcasts or other resources that you’ve used and would recommend to others.
Incredibly, Instagram has become a great source of professionals in many fields sharing their knowledge. It’s great and I use stories and blogs in conjunction with my own research to help me. I am constantly sharing pages I find that are beneficial for learning.
