Mum-of-two Nana Evans is taking on the world of online sales with her unique accessories.

When’s she not busy selling her wares to international clients, the 35-year-old says she likes to spend time with her young sons and keep a healthy work/life balance.

Nana, from Stratford, said her online accessory shop has had a “phenomenal” response with more than 2,000 sales through social media and word of mouth alone.

She added: “I have had sales from all over the world, including America, Australia, Dubai and the UK.”

Nana launched her store LoveYaaYaa accessories in August last year. Before that she ran a successful accessory business but put her career on hold to build a family.

This time round she said it’s very different. Having to balance work and family life has led to some late nights to keep business going, she said.

“I am passionate about my business, and I have three full days of work, and two full days with my boys in the week as well as the weekends.

“It is a sacrifice, but life/work balance is important to me, as is keeping healthy emotionally, physically and spiritually. It was a risk but I am glad that I took it.”
