Today we’d like to introduce you to Charles Lindlau.
Hi Charles, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
We just love Orlando, and we’ve always tried to take advantage of all that this city has to offer. We’d post our adventures on our personal social media channels, and we’d hear from friends and family that they had no idea that these places and events existed. Almost as a joke, we decided to start documenting our adventures using LEGO minifigures. We never expected it to amount to much, but after a few posts, a local publication gave us a shout out and we began to take off.
We all face challenges, but looking back would you describe it as a relatively smooth road?
Our account has helped us to really develop a deeper appreciation for Orlando, as we’ve explored parts of the city, we’d never been to before and attended events we previously didn’t know existed. We’ve found new favorite spots and tried lots of amazing food. Our posts are really a reflection of our daily lives, so COVID has presented challenges. If you look at our posts since March 2020, you’ll see them made less frequently, and you’ll find many more focused on exploring the outdoors and engaging in other safe, socially distanced activities.
Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
Our account is really focused on highlighting Orlando in fun and unique ways. We want to connect our followers to the businesses we enjoy and the varied activities available throughout central Florida. Our vast LEGO minifgure collection has been built to account for any conceivable scenario and to reflect the diversity that makes Orlando so special.
Any advice for finding a mentor or networking in general?
We’d really encourage all Orlandoans to follow local accounts on their social media channels. You are bound to learn new things about the city and to discover new and exciting places and events.
