Hi Teneisha, thanks for joining us today. We’d love for you to start by introducing yourself.
Of course, my name is Teneisha Cook and I am the founder and CEO of Nannies Infinity, LLC. I’ve had various experiences with working with children for over 10 years. I started with becoming a part-time nanny while attending law school in 2012. After moving across the country and working for the federal government for a while, I was blessed with my son, Harper. Having a son really gave my life new meaning. This newfound passion turned into providing daycare services for the past 3 years. During this time, I also attended school and completed my Master’s in Early Childhood Education. Falling in love with children and assisting families with quality childcare is the reason I created Nannies Infinity. Working closely with children and families has been a dream. If I know that I have made someone’s life easier by providing services with full integrity and trust that they can rely on, then I know I have done something right.
I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?
The transition wasn’t easy but nothing worth having is. It was difficult at first to adjust because I was so used to having a set schedule and a set routine working a 9-5. I had to create a balance that now included being a mom, wife and business owner. It is difficult at times to push forward especially as a mother you feel guilty but as a boss you know that the struggle is only temporary. At one point I was putting in 12-hour days with my daycare, prepping on the backend to launch my nanny agency AND attending school full-time to complete my master’s. That had to be the hardest two years that I’ve ever gone through. But we all have the same 24 hours and I made it happen. There were lots of tears, lots of lost sleep and a lot of sacrifices during that time but I am blessed because this is where I am today. There are lessons in the struggle and I am grateful for every single one because those hard times showed me that I am capable of doing anything!
Appreciate you sharing that. What should we know about Nannies Infinity?

I am the most excited to include my son in everything that I do. Every morning that I get up and get things going for my business is all because of him. My baby is and will forever be my motivation, he fuels me to want to be a better version of myself daily. I am a proud mother and I want all of my clients to know that I care for their families just as much as I care for my own.
Is there any advice you’d like to share with our readers who might just be starting out?
Whew, there is so much! My best advice is even when you don’t want to do it, do it anyway. There are so many times during this journey that you will be unsure, afraid and wanting to quit. If you can’t beat the fear that you have in the back of your mind, do it scared! The reward that you receive in the end will be the beginning of the best days of your life. Starting out I wish that I knew that It’s okay to not have all of the answers. I read so many books, listened to motivational speakers, and INVESTED. Invest in your craft. What you don’t know someone does and what you can’t do someone else can. You don’t have to be an expert in every area but seek out someone who is and save yourself the time and stress. My best investment was hiring a brand and marketing team and I encourage anyone starting out to do the same.
