I started this journey by needing to replace my broken umbrella on the way home from work. I had to go to four different stores before I could find one that wasn’t black or navy blue. I was not even impressed by the one I eventually purchased, so I decided then and there to start my own business with the brightest and most colourful umbrellas I could find. After choosing one product, others just seemed to flow from there. It has been a short journey so far, but very interesting and a great learning experience. I have met some wonderful people along the way, including the group who built my website, and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to do something different and get off the daily treadmill.
