Michesha Kelly, CEO, Brand Stylist and mom of 1, created a clothing line for taller kids.
Kelly, being a 6″2 woman, has had an exceptionally challenging time finding clothing that was stylish, trendy, and affordable. She soon recognized this repeating cycle with her sprouting toddler.
Inspired by her own journey, she created a brand, Topp Line Kids, which she names as accessible, stylish and essential for infants and toddlers. Kelly says, “Topp Line Kids aims to symbolize trust, quality and comfort at the highest level.” She adds, “I want to provide products for children of all colors, the opportunity to feel and look their best.”
We asked Kelly what has been the most challenging part about her entrepreneur journey, and she said, “learning e-commerce and digital marketing is another world in extreme contrast to my career. The evolution of social media and online retailers is quite elaborative.” Though there’s a lot to learn, she believes it’s worth the time and energy.
Kelly became a first-time mother and newlywed at 30 while balancing being a full-time college professor. Kelly said, “I ended up sacrificing much more than I could’ve imagined. Postpartum set in quickly and as a then stay-at-home-mom, I was very unsure of myself and how I could be truly happy in that situation.” She shares that creating Topp Line Kids was a beacon of light in her journey.
For our mom readers, we asked Kelly if she could hire someone to help, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work, and she said, “cleaning. Mompreneurs with a career are busy. Extra hands in the house to handle some of the household maintenance would be a Godsend.”
