Female Speaker: What I have to do is sit back and think about what I'm wanted to do and for me the number one thing is to be at home, so I have to figure out something that I could do from home and the other thing that was get of the computer. So it's started from there, what I did was I actually started finding other moms groups. I join moms groups and I was thinking there must be a way to be able to create something like this a network support group and somehow turn into business. It was an business at first of all, just really a support group and the reason, why turn into business was when I got this idea of somehow creating or shopping so which we have for the number third that will have things that I abuses things I had love to give to my daughter available to other moms because we also believe in organic products and local products, ethical products and that's what it more of denture. So mom to mom to -- offers ethical and eco-friendly holiday trips so and it spends it so well.
