Tell us how #SBS has affected your business
#sbs has raised awareness in the UK through twitter, of our business. It has also given us the opportunity to mention Theo in press releases etc and I have also met other entrepreneurs and made new friends.
I am a separated Mum of two beautiful girls, one of whom is hearing impaired. As my own daughter was approaching the milestone of her first period, I went looking for something nice to ease the transition such as a starter set but I couldn't find anything in any of the pharmacies or supermarkets. So I did some research and test marketing and discovered that there was a gap in the market and this was something that many Mums found difficult to broach and something that would be welcomed. I also discovered that Lone fathers loved the idea too. Most important of all, any girl who has received the box has loved it!
