Author Bio
As a full time mum of 4 children, constantly living with tight finances, I always said that if I could come up with an invention which made 50c profit on every item I sold, and sold 1 million of them, then I would be on my way to financial freedom… … Freedom to then help others on their way to financial freedom…Little did I know how true this would become when one day, (sounds like a fairy tale!), in 2003, I asked my 4 year old daughter Sarah to show me how she tied her laces. We had been trying to teach her for a while because it was a Prep class goal. After a little encouragement she tried once more becoming frustrated and upset, her confidence sinking to an all-time low. I watched with determination to understand her dilemma and solve it! Like the proverbial “light bulb” it hit me-She couldn't "see" which bits went where!Instantly I developed a teaching shoelace—creating the tri-coloured EZI-LACE-UPS™—demonstrated in The Dance Of The Coloured Shoe Laces— (selling our old much loved wind-up campervan to help make it happen). That same evening I wrote the book, which 10 years later, you now view/hold.My heart’s call is to support not only my children but under-resourced children of the world. Hence Concept 31 was born, modelled on the Biblical Proverbs 31 to send royalties from the book/shoelace sales to children in need. To order please visit www.concept31.com.auSamya Engelbrecht
