Coco and I went to the newest place to bring kids, that even kids-at-heart can enjoy – Dream Lab – The biggest business simulation playground in the world! Definitely, woke up my sleeping entrepreneurial heart. ICYDK, I graduated Entrepreneurship at Thames International Business School and most of my mom life, I have been baby-ing my little ventures which includes Lil Dudes Only. Coco was exposed to all things business, since we were always together and I am so glad that we were able to do this together and immerse him to a lot more possibilities.
