Local Mom Starts Business Aimed At Giving Busy Moms More ‘Me Time’
Writer / Kelsey Musick
If you’re a mother, then you’re probably all too familiar with the difficulties of balancing work life and home life while trying to obtain an ounce of that precious time that seems to get away from every busy mom: “me time.”
Tailored Time is a business idea from the mind of Karen McComb, a mother of three. The idea’s intent is to simplify the lives of busy moms by checking off their to-do lists so they can enjoy doing what they want to do. McComb thought on the idea for a while but only recently put it into motion. So far, she is happy with the positive responses she has received.
“I started Tailored Time a few months ago and have had good success,” McComb says. “I feel there is a great need for this, and I look forward to helping people simplify their lives.”
The purpose of Tailored Time is simple: help people gain more time to do the things they love. The execution? Slightly more complex than the idea, but McComb flourishes at what she does. The services she provides include: grocery shopping, pantry and refrigerator restock, pet sitting, gift buying and wrapping, holiday decorating and clean-up, running errands, preparation for incoming house guests, and more.
“I can offer a lot from my personal experience as a mom,” McComb says. “I understand the need. A mom is only as good as what she has to give. If a mom is tired, run down or out of shape, she doesn’t have a lot to give to her family. For a mom to be her best, she must feel her best and, unfortunately, moms often put themselves last.”
McComb has a plethora of ways in mind to help busy moms. In addition to the already-mentioned services, she can take cars for repairs, prepare meals, organize closets and clear clutter. The intention of these services? Give moms more time for themselves in order to help enhance their life at home.
According to McComb, taking tasks away from a mother’s daily routine will allow her time to exercise, spend social time with friends, work on a hobby or even take a class.
“For moms who work outside of the home, I have often thought it would be nice if they could go to their child’s sports practice or game after work, and then come home to a meal already prepared,” McComb says. “Whether they have groceries delivered or they have me do their shopping, I can prepare meals so that when they come home, they can have dinner together without the fuss.”
McComb insists that is only one small example of the many ways she can help busy moms. What’s more, McComb has no intentions of throwing in the towel any time soon, either.
“I enjoy helping others, so I really don’t know why there needs to be a stopping point,” she adds.
McComb is not only a mother herself but a wife, daughter and business owner – all of which helped her better understand the value of time. To learn more about McComb and the invaluable services she provides, visit her online at tailoredtime.org or give her a call at 317-908-4820.
