We Heart Branding Founder Business Development Kew Gardens, New York
About Larisa
I'm Larisa! I am a wife, new mom, and cat mom proudly residing in Queens, NYC. I'm the CEO and Founder of We Heart Branding, where I've curated a team of Virtual Assistants to help small business owners and bloggers implement their strategies. Through We Heart Branding, I act as an Online Business Manager for many amazing women, and I thrive in helping them generate meaningful content and more organized systems. I also write on my personal blog, weheartbeauty.com, where I detail my life's adventures in motherhood, beauty, home decor, and more. When working with brands, I strive to create candid and purposeful work while sharing my honest experiences. As a California Girl who became a New Yorker ten years ago, I'm the first of my friends and family to be an online business owner and the first to get married and become a mother. Therefore, being candid about motherhood and all the ways it has changed me is something I am incredibly passionate and open about - from sharing a detailed and honest birth story, to all the ways my pregnancy affected me.

What special skill, talent or gift would you like to give back to the community?

My greatest skill is my ability to see the holes in someone's strategy and help fix them before it's too late. I always say I'm a better assistant director than I am a director - I can't usually create something new in business, but I can absolutely provide insight on something once it has taken form! I love business brainstorming sessions and masterminds and am so excited to share my ideas with heymamas.

Personal Passions, Charities, Hobbies:

As a former dancer, I love working with any clients in the arts.

What is your biggest business challenge right now?

Marketing & Social Media

Name one thing that scares the shit out of you:

Being a work-from-home mom. After trying to go back to the office post-partum, I realized I just couldn't be away from my little girl. Being productive at home has never been an issue for me, but I genuinely am scared of burning out. I hope that I can be attentive to my little one while still maintaining my business and my blog.

If you could tell your 20 year old self one thing, what would it be?

Get over it and date him already - he's the one :)

Why do you want to be a part of heymama?

I would love to connect with new moms, working moms, and moms who are running their own service-based businesses!
