“From a young age, I understood the importance of problem solving, thinking and being creative. That’s why, after seven years working in strategic consulting, I felt the need to CREATE. I wanted to demonstrate to the world that there was a better way to do things and that I could create an inspiring product that would create value and have an impact on society. I wanted to prove that it’s possible to create a successful and inspiring online business right here in Spain”.
