Today, Meg and Ella join me to discuss the concept of Medi Teddy and the inspiration behind the product. They share how they have evolved their brand while fulfilling their original mission and the most significant challenges they have faced along the way. Meg and Ella also highlight the new product soon to be released from Medi Teddy and share their advice for young women like Ella with entrepreneurial ideas that they want to explore.
“It’s really taught me to expand on my ideas because if I do, I can really use them to help a lot of other kids.” - Ella Casano
