We had the good fortune of connecting with Alexandra Atlanova and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Alexandra, what is the most important factor behind your success?
Always offer the best you can afford for your customers and for yourself. Choose the best furniture for your office, the best service for your customers, the best and latest technical solutions – and you will enjoy your work every day. You will know and feel – you’re the Best! Never skimp on the quality of the product you make or service you provide! and of course, don’t forget about unique gifts and perks for your clients – they will feel your love and how you care about them.
What should our readers know about your business?
I’m a Women, I’m a single mother with 2 kids and I’m the Owner of Fluffy Llama LLC – We are providing a Best and Premium Quality Daycare for our kids. Our Daycares are Unique and don’t looks like others – because I choose only the best products that I can find on the market all over the World (furniture, toys, programs, workers and entertainment). I never skimp on quality and my clients see and feel it. How did I start it: I came in situation where I didn’t have a money to pay for a Daycare for my daughter, but I had to continue to work as an Employee. I came to solution in my head – that if I will open my own daycare – I don’t need to pay to myself! I wasn’t afraid that my expenses will grow up 5 times more – I was sure if I will do it – Great, I will have a success.
So I started to create my first Daycare based on my needs: what I’d like to have for my own daughter as a mother? Of course I wish the best for my kid (the same as other parents). It wasn’t easy – I learned a lot of additional areas that I have to know during the whole process, in addition – it was a 2020 Pandemic started right after I rented a Daycare Facility. Everyone around me told me: – “Wait! It’s not a good time to start a business! Economic is bad, all families sitting at home and no one will go to Daycare anymore! All Preschool was closed” – What I’ve learned? – Don’t listen anyone, only yourself! I felt that I have to do it now, or never. … and I did! My Daycare opened in August 2020 and in 4 months it was full. Now I’m in process of opening a second location. Less than a year has passed and many say it’s too early to start a new location, I need to wait to become more stable. But it’s not about me – I’m not going to wait because of someone’s fears – I do the way I feel to do, even I can’t explain why.
So the most important thing I’ve learned – never listen anyone (only the professionals in some areas when you have a specific question to them) – Do how you Feel, how you Want and how you Know – because it’s your World and your Life!
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I love everything that seems to me Beauty! Beautiful places, beautiful restaurants and nature around me (it’s always amazing). And of course – an Ocean!
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
ShoutOut to all my problems, unexpected situations and loses – because it motivates me, makes me stronger and makes me feel that I want more or want something different. We all know even more that we think! All information we need is inside of us, we just need to listen yourself, trust yourself and love yourself. Inner voice will advise you to take some additional courses, read a special book, talk to some persons in a proper time of you life. And You will attract right person or events in your life, based on your current feelings and needs. So always listen yourself first!
