Anna Zornosa left her high-power corporate career to start Ruby Ribbon, a fashion company that prides itself on making stylish (and comfortable) shape wear, helping women to look and feel their best… and what mom doesn’t love a little lift from time to time? But that was only part of her vision–Anna set out to create a company that would empower women to start their own at-home businesses. On Sunday, our CEO Mauria, gave it a whirl–she invited a group of friends and fellow moms to her home to chat, drink and learn more about Ruby Ribbon. She discovered that working has never been so much fun! Afterwards Mauria sat down with Anna to ask a few questions.

Q & A:

What inspired you to start Ruby Ribbon?

Screen Shot 2014 01 16 at 2.24.19 PM 205x300 LIMELIGHT: Anna Zornosa, Founder & CEO of Ruby RibbonI started to work on the business plan for Ruby Ribbon in mid-2011, and I had a single focus: I wanted to create lucrative and flexible jobs for women. Every woman I know is multi-tasking: taking care of kids, taking care of aging parents, contributing to communities, trying – as time allows – to take care of themselves. Women who are running their own Ruby Ribbon businesses get to incorporate their work into the fabric of their lives.

I spent years in corporate environments – sometimes in industries dominated by men – and the idea of creating products that give women confidence and that are sold by women who are creating community, was something that didn’t just make business sense – it came from my heart.

Why did you decide on the ambassador model for Ruby Ribbon?

When we go into retail stores these days, we are lucky to find someone who has the time to help us. I believe the experience of buying a product is as critical as the product itself – especially when “Fit” is an important part of the equation. The first time a woman meets our product line, she usually does so in the company of a trained Ruby Ribbon Stylist who gives her some education, helps her try things on, and ensures she’s going to love our products and look great in them.

Screen Shot 2014 01 16 at 2.31.03 PM LIMELIGHT: Anna Zornosa, Founder & CEO of Ruby Ribbon

Our product is really unique – and the channel we focus on is sales through “pop-up retail events” conducted by our stylists. Those Stylists also have their own Ruby Ribbon ecommerce sites so after a customer meets them once, they can re-order conveniently through the web. Our stylists know we are one hundred percent dedicated to their success – we aren’t going to compete with them. 

IMG 2991 LIMELIGHT: Anna Zornosa, Founder & CEO of Ruby Ribbon

What is your long-term goal for Ruby Ribbon?

WE want to be the biggest social commerce apparel brand EVER built. Ever!

IMG 3105 LIMELIGHT: Anna Zornosa, Founder & CEO of Ruby Ribbon

Being a career mom myself, I’m interested in how you find the balance?

First – I give myself a bit of a “mental break” in that I don’t expect balance to be an every day or every minute thing – that’s just setting the bar too high. I seek balance “over time”…the scales sometimes tip towards family, sometimes towards career and sometimes to me.

Secondly I learned that my own exercise is not negotiable. When I began to incorporate running and body conditioning back in my life – which, sadly, didn’t happen till my oldest was 8 – I turned the corner. 

What piece of advice have you received as a mom that you would pass along?

One piece of advice I would pass along is: “don’t forget your girlfriends.” My mother was a great believer in the power of friendships and counseled me, no matter what, to make time for my friends. I am so glad I took that advice. My friends have been there for everything that is important and I don’t know what I would have done without them.
