Entrepreneur of the Week

In this feature series, I briefly introduce some fabulous entrepreneurial ladies – a fun snapshot of the lady behind the business.

Erica O Connor-Buckley of Mum Tribe Ireland

Describe your business in 25 words or less

Mum Tribe encourages mothers to be empowered, feel supported and inspired.  

There are groups and activities for mums of all ages and stages throughout Ireland.

Do you remember your first client / sale?

 I can’t say I do! But I remember organising my first #mumtribesocial at City Wax Cork which was really lovely!

Running your own business can feel like you’re always available. Where’s the strangest place you’ve taken a work call?

No place is out of limits, so I’ve been mid way through the school run or potty training my toddler and I’ve been working!

What would you say is the worst idea you’ve ever had when it comes to your business?

 Trying to do everything on my own. My #mumtribeambassadors have been a godsend.

What‘s your favourite part of your working day?

It’s always fantastic to hear feedback from a mother who’s felt isolated and who now has a group of women to connect with. 

How about your least favourite?

Trying to balance work and home life when things get busy.

Where did you grow up?

 In Cork.

What was your first ever job?

 Working in a card shop!  

Tell us one interesting thing about you that most people may not know.

 I worked as a buyer for some big retailers in Ireland before using my marketing degree and moving into retail marketing.

What would be your karaoke song of choice?

 None, I’m not a fan!

What a great concept!

I’m a big believer in the saying “It takes a village to raise a child.”

Sometimes, us Mums can get a bit lost along the way and a strong support group of other Mums who know exactly what we are going through is invaluable.

So ladies, if Erica can do it, so can you. If you have always wanted to run your own business – Go for It, take that next step!
