Cricket Circle’s Rachel Blumenthal Doesn’t Take ‘No’ for an Answer

Rachel Blumenthal

New York Business Journal honored 78 women for its first annual Women of Influence Award. Among them was Rachel Blumenthal, CEO and founder of Cricket’s Circle, which specializes in gear and accessories for infants. Rachel is married to Neil Blumenthal, co-founder of Warby Parker, and they have one 3 year old son named Griffin. Rachel describes how she left her job at AOL because of her passion for fashion and worked at the PR department of Yves Saint Laurent.

It wasn’t easy leaving a secure job and following her passion, but Rachel credits her husband Neil with giving her the patience and encouragement to follow her dreams. She told NY Business Journal, “I’m an all or nothing person, so I believe you should be committed to what you start and see it through the best you can. Always push yourself and realize you are only human. Ask lots of questions, listen and don’t take ‘no’ for an answer.”

Cricket’s circle grew in popularity, and is now a one-stop shop for many new mothers who want to take the guesswork out of what to buy for their babies. Prior to founding Cricket’s Circle, Blumenthal launched Rachel Leigh, a jewelry line that was sold in 300 stores and was one of Oprah’s “Favorite Things.”

“Confidence in your ability is the greatest gift you can give yourself, ” said Blumenthal.
