Kidcreate Helps Parents Find a Work-Life Balance While Starting a Business.
Parents know that it is not easy to find a comfortable work-life balance running a business and starting a family. Both take time and effort and it is hard to not let one compromise the other. Entrepreneur parents have found that work-life balance means not always being able to equally balance time between owning a business and being a parent.
Lara Olsen, the founder and chief creative officer of Kidcreate Studio, says the most important thing she has learned about work-life balance is to prioritize and simplify. She advises parents struggling to, “Take control of your day, don’t let the day control you. It’s OK to say no and guard your availability.”
Lara also recommends that entrepreneur parents prioritize family time as much as they prioritize meeting deadlines at the office, and to find a support system outside of the workplace. When you own your own business there is never a time when work isn’t around you, just as there is never a time when you aren’t a mom or dad so finding support within your own family is key to maintaining work-life balance.

When the Public Art Education Sector started cutting art education programs, Founder of Kidcreate Studio; Lara Olson saw a need and a business opportunity for her son and her community. With her son’s favorite time of the day getting cut she needed to find an alternative. After researching what other options were out there, she realized there weren’t many art educational programs available in her market to replace the time in the art class being cut from his schooling. In 2008 Lara founded Kidcreate Studio to help provide kids with a fun environment where kids are encouraged to make a mess along with a beautiful masterpiece!
