The holiday shenanigans had me skipped some Posh Mom Chats but I’m back at it in the New Year! For my new readers, Posh Mom Chats is a Featured Interview segment with an inspiring woman who is also a successful influencer/blogger/mom-treprenuer because we all know how rare it is to be all of that and also a mom. Today is a special feature of a seasoned senior executive and serial entrepreneur who’s track record spans across a diverse range of industries including hospitality, finance, real estate, e-commerce, health & wellness and now fashion. Posh Mom chats today with Tina Cheng, Founder and CEO of the newly launched Capsul Jewelry.
I met Tina many years ago, before I was married, had kids and I was still working in Corporate Real Estate. I was introduced to her at a party at The Viceroy Hotel in Santa Monica with mutual friends also in real estate development. I remember that she looked incredible and was so much fun to be around and was so shocked to learn that she is a big nerd and also a single mom to her daughter. We’ve became friends and over the years I watched her expand her business expertise across various platforms internationally. Her incredible career story, including owning a nightclub at the age of 22, turning a $65 million dollar exit profit on a company she took on as CEO in Asia, to her position as COO to the celebrity and blogger favorite jewelry company Coordinates Collection and now launching her own online jewelry platform is not a small feat for any average full time mom. We met for lunch as she shares her latest endeavor and I can already tell that I will be a huge fan of the products. Without further ado, Posh Mom Chats with Tina Cheng, Founder and CEO to Capsul Jewelry!
Q: When I first met you, you were in the real estate investment and I recall you had a degree in mechanical or structural engineering. How did you transition into the fashion industry?
Q: I absolutely love the idea of personalizing and customization for jewelries. I mean, I have my two kid’s name and birthday inked on my ribs (I love drama what can I say) and this is a much more “normal” way to memorializing special dates, places, events etc. What prompted the birth of Capsul?
Q: My favorites from your collections are the signature necklace and the mini block necklaces. It is such an unique gift to celebrate any life’s milestones and special occasions. What is your personal favorite from all of your collections?
Q: Speaking of sound waves, I didn’t know that it can be customized to be imprinted on jewelry!! The idea of recording my kid’s voice calling me “Mama” or saying “I Love You” is so precious and cute. How does the 3D printing technology work for it to be printed on the jewelry? Does it work on other sounds too?
Q: Since I’ve known you, you were a single mom. And because we are also friends on Facebook, I see that you were very involved in your daughter’s school life as well as all the fun activities. How do you manage your time such that you are able to do all of that?
Q: You daughter is an incredibly smart young lady already and I can see her follow your footsteps. What is your advice for her in terms of the types of careers and fields of interest she wants to pursue?
Thanks for your compliments! I certainly think so and encourage her to become an entrepreneur in whichever industry she’s passionate about. It’s far easier and more fun to become successful doing something you love. She’s creative and loves coding so she’s currently designing mobile gaming apps. I told her she has to design an app to pay for her own college and she’s up for the challenge! 🙂
