Name: Nicole Ketchum

Business Name: Chandelier By NK

Business Description: I run an acrylic party and home decor company.

How long have owned your business: Since 2014

How many kids do you have: 1 girl, 2.5 yr old, Talulah “Lulu.” She’s in the photo with the yellow octopus!

What’s your daily schedule typically like: I get up at 5:45 am, shower and drink coffee and get ready for the morning. Lulu is up at 7, and we have breakfast and then I do emails and work from 8-9. Then from 9 to 1:30, it’s all Lulu until her nap. I do the naptime hustle and work from 1:30-3:30. Then I make dinner, work again from 5:30-7, eat dinner with my husband at 7:30 and either work more, or relax. Phew! I do get the gym in, and errands and other tasks I need to do, somehow with a toddler in tow.

What’s your best tip for maintaining work/life balance: Work out, figure out time when it is most quiet and be efficient in your time. Relax when you need to and know tomorrow is a new day.

Biggest struggle: Growing my company and working around my toddler.

Scariest thing that has happened to you while parenting: Adopting our daughter and not feeling like I was her mother and or being unsure of how to be a mother.

Where do you see yourself in 10 years: Running my company full time with employees and traveling around doing speaking engagements for work + design.

Favorite place to travel to: Oregon and Cape Cod
