Earlier this year I managed to get from over 1000 candidates in London – down to the final four in the Baby and Toy category in Maidstone Kent. This was for the recently BBC 1 programme of the same name ‘High Street Dreams’
I have have found a wonderful Designer called Christine – fresh from |Bournemouth University…followed by my brilliant PR & Marketing friend Darren… We also have the best Graphic Designer in Bournemouth- in my eyes – and that is Tamsin- we have two Web Designers…Social Media Guru & lots of strong contacts to help drive this dream forward by creating a ‘Brand’
Since then – an Investor (Angel) has come forward and some amazing contacts who can help create the branding and drive my dream forward.
Little Miss Dynamite…
I have also set up my own group of very talented people… we meet once a month to help each other – one stands out from the rest including me… and she is Sheila… she reminds me of Brenda Lee… in that – what did they used to call her? Yes… ‘Little Miss Dynamite’ and this is what she is… Dynamite.
A sentence or question or problem has not even completed its time before Sheila has the answer … she thinks on her feet and is a problem solver – with her helping me on this journey oh boy…we will no longer be on foot… coach…or train… but we will be flying high through cloudless blue skies – and much more down to earth… but still flying… we will be on the first page of Google because she is a true professional in Social Media and… well just follow our journey and watch this space. I’m both proud and pleased to call Sheila a friend.
I have kissed the Blarney stone three times… so I will always have something to say. BFN.
Presently we are waiting for a Prototype to be make in the UK – this we will then send to China… by doing things this way we will avoid some of the problems which we had last time when we went into production in China i.e. wrong colour etc… this time if we have to go to China ourselves then so be it… just to make sure that we tick all of the boxes this timew round – we cannot afford any more expensive mistakes.
Earls Court BabyShow
We went up to the Baby Show last Friday the 22nd of October – mainly to do research and to make some strong contacts. The most important one which I made was with the Charity Bliss. My plan is to help them when the timing is right.
