Hi .. Lisa here, I’m the startup co-founder of #thepositivepackage, and 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 Los Angeles 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 stalked and 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 addicted to the Cali cool 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, motorbike rides, and learning we had similar values and views of the world, over lunch in LA this past April I mentioned to Sami an idea about positivity, love, giving back, kindness, travel and adventure ... just like that it was a deal and there and then and a sushi dinner later we started our business partnership.
Our common love of all music, kindness and caring towards animals and people and the want to build the biggest, best giving back box business in town ... and here we are ...#thepositivepackage ..
We want to stay humble but be great at what we do, whilst positively enjoying every moment of our lives. Giving back as we go, and highlighting amazing projects and people worldwide. Join us in our adventure, and help us spread positivity!
Lisa and Sami (no he wouldn’t let me drive the bike!)
