In the near future, La La looks forward to adding 'Author' to her resume as she's currently working on publishing her first e-book.
"I started Ooooooo La La!
so I could have a place to voice my own opinions and not have an editor chopping up my writing. Even when others said, "you're just wasting your time with that," I didn't listen to them, and I continued on blogging. Ooooooo La La! is my baby, and I've managed to build up my own brand which is now turning into a small business - all by myself! So, never listen to the doubters. If you have passion, if you're focused, and if you believe in yourself that you can do anything, then you'll succeed!"
