Crisis Schmises, we’re starting a company!
Welcome to the official “A Little Bit Apparel” Blog! We can prove its official because we live in China, and just like everything else here we had to go through a lot of paperwork to make it official.
We are Kat and Vali; a young couple that met and fell in love in Beijing, China: a city known around the world for pollution, food scares, swine flu, and romance! Katerina is Macedonian, and Vali is English-American (it’s complicated). Half a year ago we began work on our own T-shirt brand called “A Little Bit Apparel” or ALBA for short. Any die-hard Monty Python fan will get the reference. We decided to write this blog in order to share our experiences, and perhaps maybe, just to get a few people interested in our product along the way. Keep following this blog and you’ll get to read all about the nuances of starting a business abroad, the China expat experience, and helpful tips on how not to strangle your spouse when your business and personal lives are so closely intertwined.
Kat is sure to regale you with numerous upbeat messages about creating opportunities, fostering confidence, setting life goals, and generally telling you what you should be doing.
Vali is a cartoonist; he’s also cartoonish. Kat will try her best over the course of the blog to filter his nonsense into cogent sentences. In turn, Vali will try his best to make sure that Kat doesn’t lose herself in too many inspirational tangents.
Keep following, its sure to be interesting!
