Over a cup of tea with the founders of a letter-writing service FromABirdie.com

Our very first video for the blog! And with truly special guests all the way from Amherst, Massachusetts: Anita Līcis-Ribak and Agustin Shapira, founders of a letter-writing service From A Birdie.

This lively international duo (Anita is Latvian and Agustin is Argentinian) is not only partners in business but also in life.

Here is the story about their new venture, which is starting to gain very good traction in the United States.

 
 

And here are the photos of the book created by From a Birdie for Obama filled with letters from the campaign staffers:

What has happened since we recorded this video?

Since the time we created this video, a few things have already come to fruition on their side.

  • The book has reached Obama and they received a thank you letter from him! Isn’t this amazing?!

So many good things can happen when one is pursuing one’s dreams…

Congratulations, Anita and Agus! Very happy for you. I look forwards to seeing how your venture unfolds and flourishes.
