Here are some sound bites from this juicy episode:
Everytime I am here, I am just like “wow, my sister and I built this from the ground up.” I can not believe throughout an entire pandemic we were able to really expand in the magnitude that we did. But not just expanding in space, really expanding in impact. – Tammira Lucas, Co-Founder of The Cube
The Cube offers on-site babysitting services. We created The Cube out of necessity for the community we were building with Mothers. We saw that there is a huge gap around the United States and beyond with Moms being able to effectively work while raising their children. – Tammira Lucas, Co-Founder of The Cube
We wanted to create a space where Mothers did not have to choose between their business over their families or their families over their business. – Tammira Lucas, Co-Founder of The Cube
You were able to identify what was needed which was babysitting and as a women, when I was deciding to continue in corporate America, and have a baby and have that Nanny raise the baby or get a dog, travel, and be Entrepreneur, and I chose to get a dog, travel, and be Entrepreneur. That is not a choice I want other women to have to make. – Liz Elam, Founder at GCUC
We are really trying to be strategic in the way that we are going to scale. – Tammira Lucas, Co-Founder of The Cube
Are we going to solely open up new locations and still decide how we are going to do in brand new cities, or are we going to activate the services in some of the coworking spaces that already exist that provide the babysitting services. – Tammira Lucas, Co-Founder of The Cube
That is the one thing I love about this industry is that, we are not competitors, we are collaborators and we are here to help each other. – Liz Elam, Founder at GCUC
We are really looking to bring more Mom focused programming and events so I have stayed away from focusing on those areas for a while because I really was trying to focus on building out this unique model, and now looking at how we really build that Mom community of supporters and the support of each other. – Tammira Lucas, Co-Founder of The Cube
I define being a social change agent as a person that is really shifting the attitude and values of society and addressing social problems. – Tammira Lucas, Co-Founder of The Cube
I think it’s my responsibility as a social change agent to really change the way society sees some of the social problems. It is extremely hard, especially when you’re passionate about something, and there are people that just do not care. – Tammira Lucas, Co-Founder of The Cube
It’s the people who think they can change the world that actually do. – Liz Elam, Founder at GCUC
