I love chatting to fellow small-biz owners about what gets them going and what grinds their gears about being your own boss. I have created a series of Q&As with some of my fave small brand owners in the hope we can share some behind the scenes insight into our lives as women in business.
Alf & Co. are a fabulous stockist of Dinki Human and Kirby is so inspiring! I've watched her business journey in awe as she navigated growing her brand through a pandemic. She adapted so quickly, right after opening her bricks and mortar store and having to close it due to lockdown restrictions, she took to Instagram to present her stock and make sales, all alongside mothering her two babes. I look forward to seeing Alf & co. grow.
Who are ya?
I’m Kirby, owner of recently opened Children's Lifestyle Store Alf & Co.
How and when did you come up with the idea for Alf & Co.?
What things do you enjoy most in your job as Alf & Co. Boss Lady?
What things do you enjoy least?
Any advice for anyone starting out in the world of small biz ownership?
What are your hopes and dreams for the future of Alf & Co.? Where do you see yourself in 3 years time?
Alf & Co. was always planned to be more than a kids shop. The idea behind us is that we are community space for like minded families to come to shop, socialise and play. The current pandemic has definitely made this things trickier but with restrictions easing I am really hopeful that we can start to achieve for this for our local community. Ooh and there is also plans in the pipelines for a second Bricks & Mortar shop so watch this space....
What’s your favourite breakfast?
Eggs! I love them all ways. My boyfriend always pokes fun at me that I don’t class it as a proper breakfast if eggs aren’t included! Haha.
Where can we find you?
