I went with my instincts and hit the "go" button (even though I didn't even know what my next blog was going to be about). The response has been fabulous.
If I'd have waited until I thought I was ready, I might never have started.
Years on they are still a fab go-to gift, have some stiff competition (that's when you know you've had a great idea), and have extended their product line to include cushions. What's next for little local? (maybe a BIG Local range?).
Just last year, Plastic Free Seas educated 9000 students from (a whopping) 52 schools, launched an at sea classroom, arranged 31 beach clean ups and made a real difference for all of us living in Hong Kong.
Wanting to get more out of the short time Evan & Michelle Lau spent with their kids after work, they decided to put their creative minds and writing skills together to make beautiful, engaging children’s books, that offer real life lessons and experiences. Instead of waiting (and waiting), (and waiting) for a publisher to snap up this fantastic book series, Evan & Michelle 'inspiringly' self published... so while you may not find these books in many stores, the quality of meaningful writing and bright illustrations is certainly bookstore worthy. They have even created interactive apps for your tech savvy little ones.
With their talent, passion and love of what they create, I'm sure their dreams will become reality soon enough (look out Paris, Milan, London, New York, Louella Odie' are comin'!!!).
So if you weren't ready before, you will be now!
Once you hit that 'go' button... remember to get in touch with me!
ps... couldn't resist a little advice from the Dr:
