The team at Daisa & Co collectively have 70 years' experience in business. We understand that finding your feet in the Publishing Industry can be a struggle. The four of us have had many walks of life and found ourselves in publishing via different pathways.
Daisa Morgan has been in business her entire adult life; from selling windows and doors, to designing kitchens, becoming a Reiki Master, building and opening a vibrant hotel of tranquility - Daisa has certainly done it all! As an Author, Daisa has felt the sting of rejection letters so in 2003, Daisa decided to start her own publishing company; Daisa Original Designs was founded. After several years of development, kissing a few frogs and doing the legwork, Daisa is now able to offer guidance, support and publishing services for other aspiring Authors. Daisa was awarded the Female Entrepreneur Award last year in recognition of her amazing achievements in business. After deciding to 'slow down' as she approached retirement, Daisa continues to provide inspiration and support to her publishing team and is currently writing her next children's book; 'A Bear Called Dodl'.
