Once upon a time there were three people who had a cause and three other people who were looking for a cause they could support. We have met, formed a strong alliance and stared to work together.
After some afternoons spent daydreaming about our new business, it suddenly came to us that that this was going to be a tough nut, starting a new business and all. We may be sweet enthusiastic Mums raising cute special-needs children, but we were going to need more than that to be successful at this whole thing. We knew we were going to sweat blood. We sized up our skills, networks and contacts who would be willing to help us, cooperate with us, complement us and provide guidance and support in what we set out to do. We soon understood the different roles and responsibilities that each of us was going to have in this huge endeavor. None of us was a designer, engineer, marketing or financial professional. On contrary, we are psychologists, sociologists, teachers, HR professionals, movie makers and graphic designers. We had to grow into our roles. Every one of us started seeking out opportunities: we found designers, consultants and mentors. Then we had new ideas and with each of them this huge dream we shared got a little closer to becoming reality.
This was a long and sometimes discouraging process. We proceeded more slowly than we expected. We had to let some ideas go because we could not realize them or simply they were against some safety regulations. We had to realize how painfully long it takes to edit a pitch video. We encountered many obstacles but there was always either one of us or someone from outside who helped us to overcome these obstacles. Let us thank them generally now and name them later. We have learnt enormously a lot about objects, people, each other and the business.

Nowadays we change nappies with one hand, take our children to therapy with another, vacuum clean with the third one, call our designers with the fourth, look for sponsors with the fifth, put mascara on with the sixth, hold a Skype conference with the seventh, hold a wooden spoon with the eight, wipe noses with the ninth, stroke little heads with the tenth, calculate profits and losses with the eleventh and post on this blog with the twelfth. And in our heart, we strongly believe that we will succeed with our crowdfunding campaign and we realize our dream and lead the Cause to Victory.
