FROM ADVERSITY COMES INVENTION: A MOTHER AND DAUGHTER’S STORY

Lina Trivedi, mom, inventor and entrepreneur


On this program, Lina Trivedi shares the story of her daughter, Nikhita, now 5, who has a very rare genetic syndrome called Goltz sundrome. Nikhita was born without a leg, missing fingers and lacked muscle on one side of her face. Lina had important decisions to make.

Lina had already worked as a web developer and college educator in the areas of financial planning, professional development, marketing and e-comerce. When she worked in Chicago for Ty, Lina was credited with authoring the first 136 poems found inside the tags of Beanie Babies and helping to launch Beanie Babies as the first Internet sensation. Now, she needed to use her entrepreneurial skills to build a life that worked well for her and Nikhita. The result: the Wisconsin-based technology firm, Blue Lotus Productions, Inc. and the launching of the patent-pending software, WordBotic, which gives people the opportunity to write their own stories in a short period of time.
