Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's Off To Work I Go!

For those who don't know I am a proud member of the Happy Panda team. Pamela Kramer, president and founder of this fabulous new concept, is also one of my oldest and dearest friends. We have known each other for, brace yourselves, 29 years. When Pamela asked me to join her on this endeavor I was excited. The concept has always seemed brilliant to me from the time she mentioned it after the birth of her first son. I was also hesitant as we had not spent this much time together since high school and we are polar opposites. The tortoise and the hare, if you will, but instead of racing against one another we are traveling together. Pamela is the hare moving at a fast pace and pulling me forward with her quick logic combined with business and computer know how. I am the tortoise, taking my time and helping to temper Pamela's enthusiasm and ambitious approach when she needs it. For most of our long friendship things have been this way, however, since we have embarked on this journey it has been surprising to both of us how often we have reversed roles. We seem to have found a comfortable ebb and flow over the last eight months.
Along the way we have learned a lot. For instance, marketing is nearly as important as the quality of your product. We have also made many friends in the small business world who have generously shared their knowledge and experience. After hard work and research we have developed quality products and a size chart that not only accommodates the baby plus size but it offers a true fit for average size babies as well. It has been an adventure we have both enjoyed and I can't wait to see what the future holds for our wonderful friendship and the company we are working so hard to build. So, Hi Ho! Hi Ho! It's off to work I go!
