My name is Kelisa Boden. I have been a teacher for 17 years and I love it. My husband, Bill, is an accountant. We have a 1st grader, 2nd grader and 4th grader. In the fall of 2012, the company Bill had worked for was sold and we found ourselves living on one income. In a late night conversation about living our dreams, we came up with the idea of BUILD IT! This company would embody all that we love....God, family, LEGO and education. Bill brought that dream to life and we opened Build It on December 26, 2012. The first year was a whirlwind. I had promised to love and support him...not realizing this meant working 90 hour weeks, balancing a career, family and new business. I also didn't realize that I would fall in love with it all. I love that my kids come to work with us. They are the creative brains behind the operation. I love that my introverted husband is a leader, a teacher and an entrepreneur. The trials of the first year only made us stronger. As our family watched The LEGO Movie last night, I began reflecting on it all. This movie is about us, ordinary people made special because we believed in a dream. My husband, very much like Emmet, is a methodical, rule following, ordinary man. He had an idea, that led to a company that inspires kids to be creative, dream, learn and have fun. I am proud and blessed to be a part of this dream. This is only the beginning of an amazing adventure. Thanks to all our friends and family who have supported us along the way!
