Meet Kaitlynn Lim of The Heirloom Company

Today we’d like to introduce you to Kaitlynn Lim.

Kaitlynn, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
My journey started as a college student at Indiana University. I spent a lot of my free time nannying and babysitting at a more professional level than I had in the past. It was only natural for me to begin nannying full time once I graduated, as a stop gap.

Shortly after, I started working for my first full time family, I realized that I absolutely loved being a nanny. Until that point, I had no idea how much hard work, emotional intelligence, and problem solving skills really go into being an excellent nanny. Eventually my husband’s career moved us to Los Angeles where I had the unique experience of being a nanny in LA. I met a number of other “career nannies” and was often asked if I knew anyone looking for a nanny job. When my (then) current nanny position ended I made the decision to stop nannying full time and to start my company.

Overall, has it been relatively smooth? If not, what were some of the struggles along the way?
Starting a new company is never a smooth road! I have had some bumps, mostly related to figuring out how to get my name out there! The nanny agency market in LA is pretty saturated, so I had to decide what I was going to do differently to make me stand out.
