Amazing Mom: Marnie Huard, Cheeky Chops

Every parent knows the feeling of being sleep deprived or the frustrations of trying to get your child to learn new skills and get into good habits (ie potty training & healthy eating habits). It can be challenging and exhausting. It's hard to get anything done when all you want to do is sleep, and hard to have patience when you're tired and/ or frustrated. Today's Amazing Mom helps families establish good  habits so everyone- including Mom & Dad- can feel well rested and ready to face the day and whatever adventures lie ahead. Meet Marnie Huard from Cheeky Chops...

... Get to know Marnie a little better...
How did you decide what to do?
After using Cheekychops and re-gaining my sanity, I decided that I wanted to help other moms and dads to feel like themselves again.  Sleep is also so important for babies that it’s a great feeling to hear my clients say that their whole family is much happier and rested since they have used my services.

What is your favourite part of what you do? What is the biggest challenge?
My favorite part is the excitement and pride I hear in my client’s voice when their child starts sleeping better!

The biggest challenge for me is to balance my time with my son, husband, and my business. My husband is self-employed so he works long hours and we sometimes have to be creative to spend time as a family.

Any advice to other ladies/ moms looking to start their own business?
Make sure you have a realistic idea of the time you are able to put into your business versus the time you will actually end up putting in it. Everything takes so much more time than we plan for!

About Marnie: Originally from Newport, Quebec, Marnie moved to BC five years ago. She now lives in Langley with her husband, their very active son, and their dog. She has taken several psychology courses including child and developmental psychology and having experienced the negative effects lack of sleep has on a family and a relationship, Marnie understands all the challenges that come with it. Choosing Cheekychops Consulting to help her son sleep better was one of the best decisions she ever made for herself and her family. She serves the Langley, Abbotsford, Aldergrove, Chilliwack, and Hope areas.
