You know what they say; see a need, fill a need.

Carly Abrahams started a closed Facebook group called Mums the Word.

While moderating the site she realised there was a need for a online parenting classifieds portal.  From there The Kids Post was born, a community generated website where paernts and startup businesses can be connected directly with families in their area.

Carly explains how she turned this closed online community into a national business, and how other parents can get involved.

For more information on The Kids Post head along to their website.
