Mom Crush Monday: Riche Holmes Grant
Riche Holmes Grant is a mompreneur, designer and lifestyle blogger who lives in the Washington, DC area with her husband, Cedric, and her toddler boss, Riley (age 3). She owns Innovative Study Techniques, a test prep, tutoring, admissions and admissions company that she started in 2003 shortly after graduating from law school. Ten years later, in 2013, she created the BambiniWare line of smart and stylish baby and mommy accessories based on her own experience with her daughter. She shares how she manages to make it all happen in this #QBMCM.
There are some days when I’m super productive and other days when I feel like I haven’t gotten anything done. There are some days when I’m able to go to sleep when I put Riley to bed and other days when I have to stay up and work to get caught up for the next day. It’s always going to be a work in progress. Outside of being a mom, I’m a wife, a daughter, a sister, a friend and an individual. When the stars align, these things all fit together perfectly, but there are times when they just don’t and I’m okay with that too. I think the key is to be flexible. Know when it’s time to change so you don’t sacrifice your happiness—especially when the status quo is no longer working.
I learned early on not to be afraid to ask for help when I need it. I’m only able to do everything I do because I have great support system, which includes my husband, my parents and my sister.
