{Shop “Mocal”} Mom-Owned Local Businesses

One thing our community loves to do is support small business. Charleston is full of small, local businesses, many owned and operated by moms! It is a full time job to be a parent; mother or father, sometimes even playing both roles.  To do this and run a business is no easy fete.  I’ve asked some locally run mommy managed businesses to give us some insight on what they do and how they manage to do it while still being a mom at the same time.


In Season Catering {James Island}

How many children do you have? 2: Boy- Kai, 4.5, Girl- Kira 1.5

How do you balance your work and home lives?

I balance work and home by not taking on too much. I’m a great multi-tasker but have taken on less work to be able to raise my kids. I do take my kids on Costco trips and to my work so I have great flexibility to have them with me.

What would you like other mom’s to know about your business?

I want others moms to know I’m here to help them with anything from baby showers, parties, kids school functions or even nightly dinners. Order a lasagna and have dinner for a few nights. (Melissa will attest)

** Editor note:  this is true… her lasagna (as well as everything else) is AMAZING!!!**

How do you balance your work and home lives? This is a big challenge for me! I am constantly learning how to put energy in both but I haven’t figured it out.

What would you like other mom’s to know about your business? My sister in law and I started this company with the intent to educate others about natural cleaning products. We are also providing a different kind of cleaning experience with our signature services and Home Spa Cleaning Packages.

How many children do you have? 1 son named Brewer

How do you balance your work and home lives? It isn’t easy. I sometimes feel like I’m not balancing them at all. I do the best I can and hope that my hard work is a good influence for my son

What would you like other mom’s to know about your business? I did this all on my own. It took me many years to realize that I didn’t need someone else to do it for me. Obviously I had help and support, but in the end it’s all me. I was completely capable.

How many children do you have? 2 (Jackson, 12 and Hannah, 10)

How do you balance your work and home lives? Fortunately, I am more productive when there is more on my plate. I faithfully use a calendar to schedule all of us, including playtime, dinner time, work time, down time. It’s been essential in keeping us organized and everything getting done

Carol’s Balloon Art {Wherever the part is!}

How many children do you have? 2 – Anna Grace (18) and Charlie (15).

How do you balance your work and home lives? Well- my kids are older, so it’s a little easier.  I set my own schedule, so I make sure to block off dates for school events on my calendar.  Sometimes I have things booked and school things come up, but my husband and I tag team to their events.

What would you like other mom’s to know about your business? Carol’s Balloon Art makes amazing balloon art for all occasions.  I love to perform for kids of all ages (and kids through adults love my creations!). I spend a lot of my spare time practicing new designs and bettering my craft.  When I perform at a birthday party, I know the kind of person  I would have wanted to hire for my children’s parties and I try to provide that!  I’m fun and silly, yet I am responsible and dependable.  Parties can be stressful – hiring Carol’s Balloon Art can help eliminate at least one area of stress for parties! 🙂 I recently won first place for birthday party entertainment in the 2015 Lowcountry Moms’ Choice Awards.
