Hi .. Lisa here, from Cambodia, sitting in a spot of calmness from the outside chaos of this mystical land.... aka the only place with solid WiFi!
I’m the startup co-founder of #thepositivepackage.
My side kick Sami is probably one of the coolest, tallest (6.9ft) clever cool cats you will ever know. BTW I’m tall at 5.3ft!! Sami lives in LA and I live in New Zealand, and our strange partnership came from a bunch of tweets and support whilst I was entered in the Shopify #buildabiz competition in 2014. It wasn’t long before I convinced Sami to meet me in LA for a tea and a chat face to face, just to share a yarn and the joys of entrepreneurship.
I was soon addicted to the Cali cool and from that day on, and over the past few years we have managed to catch up for a quick chit chat whilst I’ve tried to flog off my crazy startup ideas to him ...
Long story short...and many pitches later, recently over lunch in LA this past April, I mentioned to Sami an idea about positivity, love, kindness, travel and adventure. Just like that a deal was done there and then, and we started our business partnership and celebrated later that night with yummy sushi and stories about making the world a better place.
We both share a common love of all music, kindness, caring towards animals and people and the want to build the biggest, best giving back box business in town ... so here we are ...#thepositivepackage ...well I’m here in Cambodia and he’s in LA ...but absence makes the heart grow fonder and his bank account grow smaller as I shop up a storm for our packages locally here in Cambodia!
