From Vision to Reality: How Sky Luna Space Reshape the Workforce for Parents With Founder Briana Carroll

 

In this episode of the True Love Knots, our guest is Briana Carroll. Briana is the owner and founder of Sky Luna Spaces, which is the first and only co-working space with a preschool in Las Vegas, Nevada. Sky Luna Space provides both a co-working space for parents and a curriculum-based preschool for their young children. She also coaches women entrepreneurs on managing a business and family successfully. Today, Briana shares the root of how she built Skyluna Space, how she started and built out the business, the services it offers to working parents, and tips for balancing work, parenting and self-care.

Standout Quotes:

  • “The best things that come to market are things that there’s a very large need for.”[Briana]
  • “ If you want something bad enough, you will figure it out.”[Briana]
  • I built out the entire space from scratch. We literally broke down every single wall, tore out the floor and the ceiling and everything, and completely redid it. So it was a huge undertaking, but we did it, and it’s just such a great place for parents to connect.[Briana]
  • “ Predominantly, our moms don’t want to be away from their children. They don’t feel comfortable dropping them off somewhere else and want to be a part of their day.[Briana]
  • “Give yourself grace. Give yourself a free pass, and be flexible with your schedule, just like you improvised.”[Maria]
  • “You can work in the workspace or simply just drop off. Most of our parents do a mixture of both.”[Briana]
  • “Our teachers are very compassionate, sweet, and caring. A lot of them are young and don’t have their own kids, so they for sure love them like their own, and they just enjoy teaching them and seeing them grow.”[Briana]
  • If you’re not taking care of yourself, it’s very hard to take care of anyone else.[Briana]
