Now that you've gotten a sneak peek into the quirky world of my nanny adventures, let me take you behind the scenes of why I decided to embark on the journey of The Experienced Nanny (TEN). With over three decades of experience working with High-Profile, High-Net-Worth, and Ultra-High-Net-Worth clients, I realized there was a gap in the industry—a space where I could share the wealth of knowledge and the wisdom bouncing around my head.

The Evolution of a Nanny's Career

A Career Reflecting Excellence

In the span of my last four nanny positions, I noticed the industry gaps. Despite being a silent force behind the scenes, I acknowledged the depth of my experience and the potential to offer valuable insights. The decision to retire at a relatively young age propelled me to share my knowledge with others, leading to the birth of The Experienced Nanny.

A High-Flying Journey

My journey wasn't initially planned to be exclusively with High-Profile clients, but as my career unfolded, it naturally gravitated in that direction. Now, armed with a treasure trove of experiences, I felt compelled to create a platform where nannies, parents, nanny agencies, and family offices could gain a better understanding of the nuanced role of a nanny, team dynamics, and the intricacies of working with HP/HNW/UHNW clients.

The Birth of TEN

From Funny Nanny to The Experienced Nanny

Taking over The Funny Nanny website was a stepping stone, but the tone, trajectory, and content didn't align with my vision. That's when I decided to breathe life into TEN. The platform aims to be a beacon of knowledge, sharing my career highs and lows and offering valuable insights into the world of nannying.

A Holistic Approach

TEN isn't just a blog—it's a multifaceted endeavor. With a YouTube channel, a blog, and a podcast, I strive to cover a spectrum of topics. From career guidance to navigating nanny teams, working with high-profile clients, and general nannying advice, TEN is a hub for information.

The Low-Key Launch

While TEN officially launched in 2021, I kept things low-key initially. Behind the scenes, I fine-tuned the platform, molded ideas, crafted messages, and built affiliations. The groundwork was essential to ensure that TEN would stand as a robust resource when the curtain lifted.

The Vision for 2024

Looking ahead, 2024 holds exciting plans for TEN. Brace yourselves for appearances at conferences and events for the private service industry. The mission is clear—to extend the reach of knowledge, foster connections, and contribute to the growth of the nanny community.
