Husband and wife Milica and Milivoje, both marketing and brand management experts, lost their jobs on the same day, after working in the corporate world for many years. When it happened, they were the parents of two kids, expecting the third one. For many people, these circumstances would be devastating, but for this unique couple it was a sign that it was about time to start their own business, one they had been thinking about long before losing their jobs. So – their oven became their office, aprons their business suits, and members of the family their main assistants. They started making homemade oat cookies they called Andjeli (Angels). Beginning modestly with door-to-door deliveries, they developed their business into a serious Serbian brand that produces 30 tons of cookies each year! Milica and Milivoje are sharing their special story with readers of YT Magazine.
