Tara Darnley and her husband co-founded Darlyng & Co., an award-winning eco-friendly lifestyle baby brand. She hit the ground running and spent 3 months coming up with the idea for the Yummy Mitt and made it to production all while learning how to deal with a newborn. Now, she’s using her platform, Dreams Inspire Reality to help bring other new entrepreneurs up to pursue their dreams.
We talked about marriage and working with your spouse, how important planning is – family wise and business wise, and how she managed being a new mom and being new to business at the same time.
She’s a big believer in figuring things out – whether it’s motherhood, balancing a heavy travel schedule with a busy family schedule, or filing her own trademark.
Everything she does, she reflects against her why – why she works long nights, why she works so diligently, why she does everything she does. Her why, is the reason that she is able to live a life that she dreamt of.
