- Jordan Lloyd Bookey, Chief Mom at Zoobean
...
Jordan Lloyd Bookey is Chief Mom at Zoobean, a discovery and personalization platform for kids' books, all handpicked by parents. Before she decided to make the leap as an entrepreneur, Jordan served as Google's Head of K-12 Education Outreach, where she was responsible for the company's worldwide programs that expand access to technology and computer science kids. Jordan lives with her family in Washington, DC. You can usually find her at 1776 DC, working on Zoobean with her husband and Chief Dad, Felix, or exploring the city and trying to keep up with their two little kiddos.

This week's Smart + Stylish Mom Spotlight is on Jordan Lloyd Bookey, Chief Mom of Zoobean and former head of K-12 Education Outreach at Google. She's 37 years old and lives in Washington, DC with her children, Cassius (5) and Florence (3), and her husband and business partner, Felix. In 2014, Jordan and Felix appeared on ABC's "Shark Tank" and won an impressive $250k investment from Mark Cuban to grow Zoobean.

I met Jordan during the first week of school last fall. My daughter ("toddler boss") was having a pretty rough time with separation anxiety and Jordan pulled me aside to tell me that she'd gone through the same thing with Florence and that everything would be okay...eventually. And she was right...eventually. I definitely need another post (maybe two) to tell you that story though.
Toward the end of the week, my husband and I stopped to talk to Jordan and Felix on our way to the local diner for breakfast (where we camped out during school hours that first week). When toddler boss's teacher learned that I'm a mompreneur, she told me that the Lloyds had been on "Shark Tank" (although I think she mistakenly called it "Fish Tank"...so cute) and that she thought we'd have a lot in common. She was right too.
The four of us ended up talking for at least 30 minutes on the steps of the school after the drop-off. I don't remember the details of the conversation, but I do remember that for the first time time that week, I didn't cry or feel like an awful parent for leaving my child as she called (screamed) out for me. I will always be grateful to Jordan and Felix for being such a much-needed and interesting distraction that day.
Since then, we've all become great friends. Jordan and I have girls' nights; Felix and my husband have their guy talks; and Florence and toddler boss are BFFs. Our families often meet for a casual dinner at the same local diner, which is always a fun way to end the week.
What I like about Jordan is that she's one of the smartest, most down-to-earth people you'll ever meet. She's so open to sharing her own experiences and I always gain so much from our conversations. In our interview, she talks candidly about motherhood, style and what it's like to co-manage a growing business and still be present for her children.
...
Jordan: With kids, I am able to almost experience the world through their lens.
...
Jordan: I stick with the mantra, "Do what's next.
...
Jordan: I love going on adventures with our family, but my truly favorite times are in our home, just enjoying the day without a real schedule on the weekends.
...
Jordan: Go to yoga!
...
Jordan: Classic with a slight edge.
...
Jordan: I wear dark colors and forgiving clothes!
...
Jordan: Follow your child's interests and don't worry too much about when they will read independently.
...
Jordan: Get ready for a crazy ride!

Riche: What's your favorite part about being a mom?
Jordan: With kids, I am able to almost experience the world through their lens.
...
Jordan: I stick with the mantra, "Do what's next. Life can be very overwhelming, but if you remember to just take the next step, then eventually you'll get there. As parents, this is especially important because it grounds us and helps keep us in the moment with our family.
Riche: What's your favorite thing to do with your children?
Jordan: I love going on adventures with our family, but my truly favorite times are in our home, just enjoying the day without a real schedule on the weekends. We play out in the yard, read books and eat meals together as a family. It doesn't get better than that.
Riche: What's your favorite thing to do when you have some much-needed alone time?
Jordan: Go to yoga! I so appreciate that time alone to think and be still. During that time, I also try to connect with my sisters and girlfriends so we can speak in peace!
Riche: How would you describe your mommy style?
Jordan: Classic with a slight edge. I keep my basics dark and neutral and have tons of big, bright jewelry and scarves.
Riche: What's your secret to being a great mom and looking great too?
Jordan: I wear dark colors and forgiving clothes! And I always make time to get my hair done regularly.
Riche: Zoobean delights kids with books curated just for them. What's your best advice for moms who want to instill a love of reading in their children?
Jordan: Follow your child's interests and don't worry too much about when they will read independently.

Jordan Lloyd Bookey and Felix Lloyd aren't running for president, but they already have made it to the White House.
...
Bookey and Lloyd are the founders of Arlington-based Zoobean, which offers an early literacy tool for libraries and helps parents find the right books for their children.
...
"It's like being part of a trade show, but you are in the White House," says Bookey. "They let us know a week before the event that we could set up our booth."
Bookey and Lloyd founded Zoobean in 2013.
...
Bookey is the former head of Google's K-12 Education Outreach team. Lloyd's first entrepreneurial venture was a financial literacy game, MoneyIsland, which was bought by BancVue.
Zoobean's core service is Beanstack, which provides families with learning tips, tools to log reading sessions, book and app recommendations and special badges tied to local library programs.
"Our first partner was the Sacramento Public Library," says Bookey. "We now have about 50 different partners around the country and in Canada."
The company also started Beanstack for Summer Reading, a service involving the Montgomery County Library in Maryland. "They had a 25 percent increase in registrations from their previous summer so we consider that a success," Bookey says.
She nominated her husband to attend Demo Day after reading about the event. "Over 2,000 companies were nominated to attend," she says.
