– Entrepreneurship and being a mother… how difficult is it?

It is quite a challenge, but I can assure you that I have never had more motivation and clarity of thought in my life. It’s as if inside me I knew that I couldn’t fail and that this had to be a reality, yes or yes. Today, it is the same feeling seeing my two children and the happiness of seeing them grow together with me.

– Is there anything you would like to have been told before undertaking?

That the first days are very hard and sometimes even frustrating because you’re just doing it, answering messages, preparing orders, managing suppliers and you have very little time left for yourself, despite being at home.

– What role has your husband played in this process?

Erick… he’s a key player here. He helped me with his emotional support and currently, he is the one who is in charge of the administration of the store.

– Josselin gets up and what is the first thing you think about to start the day with the many pending tasks?

The desire to be with my children is my main motivation and thanks to owning my own business I can organize myself at different times to review the operation and delegate activities to the team.

– Speaking of the team… How many people have you managed to employ in ‘Sole’?

We are a team of seven people. I like to motivate them day by day, because although we are a small company, for us it is big and our employees and their well-being are one of our priorities.

– Why the name ‘Sole’?

The name refers to how I felt my son at that moment: like a sun that came to illuminate my life. I liked its variant in the Neapolitan language, from which is that famous song ”O Sole Mio’ and because it is a short and easy word to remember I decided to use it for my brand.

– What are your future plans, Josselin?

We want to continue being an online store, possibly opening branches in key points of the country, but we also want to expand throughout Central America and very soon to be able to offer our products to women from other parts, since many times they write to us from the United States, Guatemala , El Salvador, and some South American countries and to see if we can send them our products.
