Parenting, entrepreneurship and not taking life too seriously:

A chat with Mabel’s Labels Co-founder Julie Cole

Mabel’s Labels literally created their own industry, changing the lives of moms everywhere. They created their personalized, innovative, dishwasher and laundry-safe labels so that all that stuff didn’t go missing as frequently.

But what’s the story behind the labels? In today’s episode I chat with Julie Cole, Co-founder of Mabel’s Labels. Back when her son was diagnosed with autism at the age of three, Julie, her sister and two friends decided to dive into the world of entrepreneurship. She left her law career and balanced her schedule between creating a resource team for her son (he’s now in second year university) and building what would become an incredibly successful business. Julie is a mom of six and a total inspiration as someone who gets things done while not taking like too seriously. She has awesome mom wisdom AND entrepreneur wisdom to share, and does just that throughout this chat.
