Are you ready to take the jump? Meet Sonia Padam who made the leap from accountant to entrepreneur with Eight Hour Studios, a luxury sleepwear brand. We spoke to her about her inspiration to change careers, the importance of strong brand values, how to create a network of influencers and that it’s OK to make a few mistakes along the way. Phew! Her brand may be called Eight Hour Studio but it took much more than a night’s sleep to develop. Read below to hear all about Sonia’s story.

With an ever-changing work climate, there’s a good chance you’ve worked freelance before, have heard of the 4-hour workweek (and want to try it, right?) or in fact, work a double life.
What’s a double work life? This is when you spend your day at a 9-5 job and your evenings or weekends working on your own business, a second job or passion project. Here at MOO, we’re fascinated by these ‘double lifers’ and even have quite a few of them working for us too.
So, we’ve started a series where we get to know some exciting, inspiring folks in our community and at MOO too, to find out what it takes to lead a double life, err work life, we mean…
The MOO Shop has been officially open for about a week and we are very pleased to be meeting MOO Customers (old and new). For those who haven’t been able to visit, let us introduce ourselves. We’re the MOO Shop team: Georgi, Lauren and Charlotte. Good to meet you!
The MOO Shop is already proving to be a hive of activity with customer collections, connections and inspiration being shared. Our sample wall has proved to be very popular. As the ‘try before you buy’ section of the Shop, it gives customers a chance to get an idea for how our different paper stocks actually feel, whilst checking out some …Continue reading this article…
We love discovering new businesses that you guys have got kicked-off and love it when your creative use of MOO Products has been some small part of a success story. That really is the icing on the cake. (CAKE! Did someone say cake?)
So when we decided that we wanted to open a shop, pretty much the first thing (after deciding that there were going to be cookies) was to ensure that you, our customers, and your businesses took pride of place.
According to staff accounts it was a very (we repeat, very!) cold morning when Daniel arrived at the US MOO office. He was then quickly scooped up by Steve and Paul (visting from the UK) and given a tour of the warehouse. This went down a treat as he was shown the physical creation of many MOO Products including our Luxe Cards.
Soon after, Daniel spent some time with MOO CEO, Richard Moross (where we can only assume they discussed the amazing cake waiting outside).…Continue reading this article…
We wanted to start off the year with a good one, and luckily, inspiration came to our very doorstep. At the end of December, we got a visit from our UK MOO Award winners, ColaLife – you can read all about their trip to MOO HQ here, and their brilliant business here.
Aside from their business and their brilliant presentation, we were also hugely impressed with their Business Cards. As you can see above, they used Printfinity to create 5 Business Cards that present their business – from start to finish. Simon …Continue reading this article…
When we invited our UK MOO Award winners Simon Berry (along with his wife and business partner Jane) from ColaLife to have lunch with us at MOO HQ, we didn’t plan for them to walk in halfway through dessert – but sadly, a combination of late trains and a Twitter meltdown meant that we didn’t get to have the long lunch followed by their presentation, as we’d planned.
However, this didn’t deter Simon and Jane, who had a quick bite as they prepared to talk to MOO about their own, rather more personal long journey – from the conception of the ColaLife idea, to its current …Continue reading this article…
