Where are you based?
The West Midlands, UK
When did you launch?
How and why did you come up with the idea?
On the day that George Floyd was murdered, like so many I was upset, exhausted and thinking when will this end?! In such a short period of time we had news of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Christian Cooper and now George Floyd. That night I couldn’t sleep and I wondered what I could do; and I began to think about my daughter and how important it was to keep reminding her who she was, how special she was and how important she was and I began to write some affirmations.
‘My product is about building self-esteem in children’
I then decided to turn the affirmations into flashcards which teach the alphabet as well as focusing on personal, social and emotional development and make them available for other children and I am so excited to now see them come to life.
What barriers / obstacles did you have to overcome and how did you do it?
The only real obstacle was finding a company to print the Flashcards but after some research I found a really great company
What is different about your product and brand?
My product is about building self-esteem in children as well as educating them
What are your plans for the future?
I definitely want to produce other children’s products. Although I’ve been in business for nearly 10 years my clients have always been adults so this was definitely a new area for me in terms of catering to children
Are you looking for funding / investment?
Not presently but in the future i will be
