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 FromABirdie.com. This lively duo (Anita is Latvian and Agustin is Argentinian) are 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. Since the time we created this video, a few things have already come to fruition on their side. More about them below…
