We had the good fortune of connecting with Natalie Sanchez and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Natalie, can you walk us through the thought-process of starting your business?
Starting my own business is something I have always aspired to do. As a stay at home mom of two babies under two years old, I wanted to create something that was flexible enough for me to spend as much time as possible with my kids, while also allow me to work on meaningful projects. Having flexibility to control my own schedule and balance my professional and personal life was the key driver to finally creating the business I had always wanted to own.
Alright, so let’s move onto what keeps you busy professionally?
My background is actually in business administration and marketing. I worked in the corporate world for 10 years and had roles in sales, branding/campaign development, event planning and management. After deciding to stay home to raise our first child, and second child soon after, I realized that it was the moment to start my own business and create a work/life balance that would fit my young family. I’ve always loved organizing, even as a child. I am the weirdo that gets excited about messes because I can see the potential for organization. From that love of organizing, Home Regrown was born. We are in our first year of business, learning so much and constantly improving our client offering. Every space has its challenges and every client has their own personal needs. The more we get to know our clients on a personal level, the easier it is to address their needs and bring their vision of organization to life. Home Regrown is rooted in home organization and philanthropy. Our client’s clutter becomes meaningful donations to our local community and beyond. This is the heart of our company. Our work has meaning. We create beautiful spaces in our client’s homes and grow the good in this world.
Let’s say your best friend was visiting the area and you wanted to show them the best time ever. Where would you take them? Give us a little itinerary – say it was a week long trip, where would you eat, drink, visit, hang out, etc.
There’s no better plan for me than eating out. I am a foodie at heart and love finding little hole in the wall places, because they always have the best food. Coconut Grove is one of my favorite neighborhoods in all of Miami and home to an incredible restaurant called Sapore di Mare. The cacio e pepe is a must. I also love the Wynwood/Midtown area. There are so many new food trucks popping up. I would definitely recommend getting a burger at Burda and walking from food truck to food truck trying one thing off the menu. In my opinion, that’s the best way to explore a city.
Who else deserves some credit and recognition?
My husband is my biggest supporter. He has always been there for me and encourages me every step of the way. We are celebrating our 10th wedding anniversary this month and I couldn’t be more proud of the family we have built and what we’ve accomplished in our professional careers.
