This week we bring you Sheri’s story:

While on maternity leave with my mini me, I started Mini Me’s, the company. (Note: I started the company AFTER my daughter’s colic subsided! haha). 

Mini Me‘s, publishes a personalized children’s book that lets you combine your favourite family photos into the story.  It’s also the 1st book to let you choose the degree of personalization, such as:

1) Text only (e.g. names, child’s date of birth)
2) Add Child’s photo
3) Add Child’s photo and 1-2 Adult photos

Two things inspired the business idea:
1) creating a photo book for my baby seemed like a lot of time and effort (which new moms don’t have!)
2) my parenting classes and books emphasized the importance of early reading to your baby, to develop their language skills

While discussing these two topics with my husband, we thought: "Why not develop an easy way to combine our pics into a family-friendly story book?" Presto! Mini Me’s was conceived.  Nearly 6 months later, and after a long and arduous labour, we finally ‘birthed’ our company!

Mini Me’s books are made online; each book is unique to the child.  We publish in Ontario and print on environmentally and socially-friendly paper as certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. 

Although having a mom-based business is hard work, truthfully, being a 1st time mom has been much harder!  However, my daughter is been my inspiration. I don’t think I had the courage to do this before; being a mother makes you fearless.  I look forward to watching both of my babies grow!
