Leisa Papa is the founder of Little Kids Business, a fast-growing online marketplace specialising in products aimed towards children from babe-in-arms to 14 years old. Since its launch in 2017, it has grown to house 300 stores - both big brands and small businesses alike. In 2020 Leisa was named in the Inside Retail Top 50 Small Business Leaders.
Leisa attributes the success of Little Kids Business to the motto that she has lived by: “If I never ask, the answer will always be no, so give it a go in case they say yes,”.
Prior to founding her business, Leisa worked in sales and marketing for 15 years. She is also the author of the children’s book Daniel and the Dummy Fairy. Released in 2015, the book is now in its third reprint.
