How a Tween’s Babysitter Frustrations Inspired Her to Start a Business – The Story Exchange

She was tired of Suffering  from caretakers she didn’t like.  To suffer due nto them anymore was out the question for Noa Mintz, who started babysitter-matching service Nannies by Noa at age 12. Today, she artfully balances high school and success as a successful entrepreneur.

Mature beyond her age Noa, took it upon herself to start finding solutions to the things that frustrated her with the quality of nannies that were being sent to her family with total disregards of their requirements.

Nannies by Noa- Execs

So she started approaching women she met at birthday parties, church services and other social events and asking them: “Do you babysit?” Using the pen and pad she always carried with her, Mintz began adding names of sitters to what became her “Nannies List.” All the while, her mom chuckled and watched in amusement — Noa was only 12 at the time, after all.

“That list became the underpinning of Nannies by Noa, a child care agency that pairs nannies and babysitters with families in New York City and the surrounding area. It quickly gained popularity through word of mouth, as more people heard Mintz’s surprising story.

At first, she simply provided her list to parents. But soon, she expanded her services by personally finding nannies for each family, based on their needs, and charging parents $100 to $200 per match.”

Her business “Nannies by Noa,” was born

Mintz, who is now 17, never imagined a business would come out of her personal search for better babysitters. “It all happened in a very raw and authentic way,” she says. “I was a child, so I wasn’t trying to make a living to pay for room and board. It was a passion, and I was trying to gain people’s trust.”
