I did Business Studies at high school. I quite enjoyed it from memory – we had a great teacher in our final year who would tell us about the 30th’s she attended on the weekends. I remember we had to create our own fake business one year and compile a break even analysis and submit a SWOT analysis and all that jazz. My business was called Muffins on the Run. My friend Jordie’s business was Portafilter coffee. As we were required to estimate our own sales, I believe both of our businesses were wildly successful, even though in reality we would have failed spectacularly (as our teacher helpfully pointed out) seeing as we based our fictional businesses in our local shopping mall next to near identical competitors.
Shellamy Baby is a total success story that grew from a friendship that started in Business Studies at high school (hello Jordie – what were we doing back then??).
When I had my first baby (Sloane), something I kept looking for, but found very difficult to find, was a stylish brush set. I was very excited when I came across Shellamy Baby. I love the products and also very much the story behind the brand. Here’s Amy and Bron to tell you a bit more:
A chat with the women behind the Shellamy Baby Brand
“We set ourselves small goals every month and celebrate every time we achieve them”
We are Amy and Bron are the co founders of Shellamy Baby.
We have known each other for over 15 years. We sat next to each other in business studies one day at high school and our friendship blossomed from there. We finished high school and university together and have worked for a number of years in the city together, often meeting for lunch to discuss our future dreams and ambitions.
Our lunch time catch ups often led to discussions about our future family and career goals, having children, and also our desire to start a small business together one day.
It was one sunny Autumn day in 2016 when we decided to follow our dreams and do just that and that is where Shellamy Baby was born.
We absolutely love Shellamy Baby. We have learnt something new every day and feel so proud of our achievements. We set ourselves small goals every month and celebrate every time we achieve them.
There was one moment in particular that was so special to us both. We sat down next to each other, made the last few tweaks and then officially launched our website. We proudly announced the milestone on our Facebook page before standing up to give each other a big hug. it was at that moment that we heard an email sound ping on the computer. It was our first sale, only moments after we went live. We had done it. We could not be prouder of each other, our beautiful product and our business.
We are both so passionate about health and wellbeing. Amy is always looking up delicious healthy home made recipes for her little one to enjoy and Bron absolutely loves being outdoors and staying active.
Our goal is to reflect our healthy, happy lifestyles through our products. We want people to smile when they open their Shellamy Baby hairbrush and comb set. Whether someone buys the set for themselves or for a loved one, we hope our brush sets offer an opportunity to create a calming and loving post bath time ritual for you and your little ones to both enjoy.
