During one of her weekly sessions at SoulCycle last year, Noa Mintz, the founder of Nannies by Noa, had an epiphany: In order to get her booming 3-year-old agency to the “next level,” she would need to hire a CEO to take on day-to-day business matters.
She simply couldn’t handle the “excruciating hours” and “hundreds of emails” she was fielding per day.
Fair point. After all, the mini-mogul is only 15 and just now indulging in a rare vacation — a ski trip out West with her family.
“It’s hard to step away,” she admits. “I never get peace, so I’m very much enjoying this.”
Her decision to delegate has paid off. Her full-service agency now serves 190 clients in the tri-state area, providing them with both baby sitters and full-time nannies. And in a bid to grow her brand, she just struck up a partnership with the Ivy Key tutoring and test-prep service.
Nearly three years ago, while most sixth-graders were texting their friends and watching the Disney Channel, Mintz spent the first half of the summer interning at a nonprofit — and the second half hatching her nanny agency idea.
