Today we’d like to introduce you to Kelly Lilly and Brooke Mitchell.
Please kick things off for us, where does this story begin?
We, Kelly and Brooke, met through our love of outdoor adventures, mutual girlfriends and our kids. With similar personalities and interests, we found ourselves bumping into each other more often and getting a chance to become better friends. When we realized that our respective businesses (KellyCanVT and Launch802) were running in parallel paths, we talked about collaborating and how the businesses could grow better if we combined forces. After a few lattes, some epic powder runs and numerous spin sessions at Ride Indoor Cycling in Stowe, our new ideas turned into a business merger.
Two strong women combining forces for good in order to “Launch Your Life”. KCL802 gives us a chance to work with our clients giving them a better work & life balance. “From Power tools to Parties and Everything in Between” is our motto and it is who we are, what we do and what we love!
Great, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an smooth path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Smooth? Every road has bumps in it whether it has just been paved or not! KCL802 has grown from being two small businesses run independently by two moms working around their kids’ schedules into a fast growing venture driven by word of mouth. Keeping up with a growing client base with our business model and bringing “launchers” on for jobs has been demanding and very rewarding. KCL802 works with moms and dads who may have been out of the work force for whatever reason but want to get back into it on their own schedule. We match these launchers and their skills set with our clients based on the need, the right fit, and good timing. As in every business, these matches can prove trying at times but when it works our clients are happy, our launchers are thrilled to be back at work and we know we have created that work/life balance for all.
