Mums in Business featuring Inscripture

This week for my Mums in Business series I’m really excited to be featuring Inscripture; a business that creates timeless, stylish and personal items to treasure forever. 

Inscripture is a huge success and has been seen worn on the Love Island cast as well as many celebrities. The business also won Theo Prophetis’s Small Business Saturday #SBS award, which is an amazing achievement. Hard work has really paid off to create a business dream for this Mum and you can find out how by reading my interview…

Tell me a little bit about you, your background and Inscripture?

Inscripture is an award winning family run business established in 2016 with a vision to create timeless, unique, sentimental and style savvy items to treasure.

After 9 years in the banking industry and a longing for my own business I finally took the plunge when I went on Maternity leave in 2015 and set up Little Legs Boutique. Inspired by my daughter and the want of personalised items a little bit different to the high-street and personality driven I decided it was the best lower risk time to fulfil my dream. I could never of imagined its success and rapid growth, which in turn has led to my partner joining the business full time and a number of other staff including my Dad. In May this year we rebranded to Inscripture as the business has evolved over time and LLB was no longer as relevant to who we had become.

What were your motivations for setting up Inscripture? 

The main motivation for me always was, and always will be, the flexibility to be able to spend time with my children whilst doing something that I love.

Inscripture allows me to not only spend time with my family, but create personalised, timeless pieces that can be treasured by the recipient.

How do you balance the business around family and childcare?

Flexibility. As a mum of two, juggling children and a career isn’t always the easiest and with the rising costs of childcare it’s easy to see why some women can’t go back to work as it isn’t feasible. Having my own business has given my ultimate flexibility although working into the early hours of the morning isn’t always ideal, but needs must.
We have a number of ‘virtual’ staff who are mums which gives them the flexibility to work the hours suited to them, whilst also suited to us for the workload. Now whilst we appreciate this may not always be the case as we get busier, we will then aim for others to have the same flexibility around one another to fit the business needs whilst meeting their own.

Since setting up the business what’s been your biggest success to date?

It is hard to pinpoint our biggest achievement as there have been so many proud moments but our most recent has been winning Theo Prophetis’s SBS Award where we are looking forward to meeting him next year. We have also had our Jewellery worn on this years Love Island and are regularly spotted on a number of Celebs which is always exciting to see.
Our first big achievement was being featured in Vogue Magazine which was then followed by Baby London & being nominated for the Mother & Baby Awards 2018.
We will always celebrate every success as we are so grateful to be where we are today.

What’s your top tip for Mums who are thinking about setting up their own business?

My advise for any would-be mumtrepreneurs would be to be original, do something you really love and are happy to put the hard work into.
Nothing is an overnight success, things take time and determination but if you are passionate about what you do then go for it and don’t give up at the first hurdle. You will come across many things which will make you want to quit sometimes or seem impossible to overcome but nothing is impossible if your heart is truly in it.
