When I received a promotion this month I didnâ€™t really make an announcement or share it with anyone outside my family (including my Boba family) â€“ I changed my signature block and business cards of course, and changed the information on Facebook & LinkedIn, but little else. To my surprise over the next several days…read more >
In the summer of 2008 I had the privilege of becoming the very first employee for Boba. We had a small office in North Boulder and I spent my days as office manager learning about the business and of Sleepy Wrap (as the Boba Wrap was called then). Not having a family of my own at the time, many of the concepts that I was hearing of day in and day out were completely unknown to me â€“ babywearing, attachment parenting, natural birthingâ€¦ I quickly took it upon myself to not only learn about these amazing philosophies but eventually adopted them into my own life.
Since that summer, many things have changed for me. At Boba I have gone from Office Manager to Director (with a few stops in between), and now enjoy just about every aspect of this company, working side by side Robert and Elizabeth as they continue to do amazing things with both the products and the company. I focus primarily on managing our wholesale network and establishing new distribution opportunities world-wide although my involvement does tend to stretch much further. Iâ€™ve enjoyed being able to assist with product development, social media outreach and now being a contributor for this amazing blog. I look back at my beginning here at Boba with a smile, and feel nothing but excitement at the mere thought of what is to come.
From a personal perspective, the opportunities to learn about babywearing, attachment parenting and natural birthing have directly impacted my life as well. Since the day I first walked in the door my outlook on life has changed substantially. My husband and I welcomed our first child into this world in 2010 and now I can say with a smile on my face that we practice all of these amazing things in our own life. Babywearing has brought my son and I closer together and has enabled us to experience so many things together. Had I not found myself at Boba I doubt my life would have gone in this direction and I am thankful for the amazing opportunities I have had because of my time here.
As a family with the â€śadventure bug,â€ť I will admit that having a baby put us in a bit of an upside-down state. Gone were the days of randomly getting in the car and getting lost somewhere, leaving for the weekend on a whim or even spending the day in the mountains with little to…read more >
Here at Boba we often get questions about where our beautiful designs come from, and with the new Boba 3G print collection there is one name that seems to be coming up every few minutes. Holli Zollinger is not only the amazing designer of both the Lila and Soho prints as part of the new…read more >
Every now and then its so important to take a break from the chaos of the day and ENJOY spending time with those around you. Here at Boba we do just that â€“ we devote our days to running an amazing company and occasionally have some fun together, unwind and enjoyâ€¦ GO CARTS! Nothing de-stresses…read more >
Last month, Kangura, the Boba distributor in Spain, brought their community together to celebrate babywearing in a very exciting and special way. A â€ślipdubâ€ť is a type of video that combines lip synching and audio dubbing to make a music video and is typically made by filming individuals (or a group of people) lip synching…read more >
The ABC Kids Expo is arguably one of the largest trade shows for baby and childrenâ€™s products here in the US. Previously held in Las Vegas, NV each year, the show migrated clear over to Louisville, KY this year. Scheduled for September 2011, the timing was ideal to unveil all of the amazing changes weâ€™d…read more >
As parents we all joke about the elusive â€śmanualâ€ť that should accompany the birth of all children in this world. However, in all honesty, any manual would (based off my experience!) be basically useless. In less than ten seconds after the birth of my son I quickly realized two things: 1)Â Â Â Â Â Any amount of instruction…read more >
A while back I happened across an article that, in all honesty, gave me a bit of a giggle but also set me on a personal mission to prove it wrong. The article, focused on the doâ€™s and donâ€™ts of family travel, was certainly on a lighter note, but seemed to imply (at least in…read more >
