The Speakeasy of Co-working Spaces

The spring of 2018 would prove to be quite busy and super exciting; beginning to meet the people in our crazy rich entrepreneurial community of greater Burlington, Vermont.  Once I opened these doors, I was HOOKED.  I couldn’t soak up the info fast enough and I craved being in this space with these people.   […]

Embracing the Suck

The down and back in the AutoShoppe parking lot was enough to build our excitement and prove the concept. I still needed to run further and test longer to see what was going to work well, and what needed more attention.  Even if I had a child of stroller-needing age, it wouldn’t have been safe […]

The (first) Moment of Truth

*Make sure you put your sound on – my daughter is narrating!* How we chose to attach the StrollRunner to the stroller is just as important as having a product that works. Your little is on the other end – safety is a non-negotiable priority. To attach the tubes to the stroller handle we needed […]

Keep it Simple, Stupid

I’m about to share a little-known secret about my initial thoughts for this product, which counters the very thing I love the most about where it is today: my initial idea wasn’t hands-free at all.

Crowdfunding is done…now what?

Crowdfunding was a trip. As is true with each new endeavor, I learned a ton, and if I ever choose to raise funds via that method again, there is so much I would do differently…like build awareness of what I’m doing BEFORE I ask people for money.  That would definitely be numero uno.  All in […]

Concept Proven

I left off with Scott having given me a list of items to research and purchase. I was CLUELESS!  I understood, as much as I could, the concepts of each item he wanted me to look for, and what it would do, but I didn’t know where to look for these or what they may […]

Where I am Today

Crowdfunding is WORK.  I can honestly say I wasn’t prepared for the amount of emotional exertion that would go into running a campaign; the highs and lows, the successes and failures, but I have also loved it.  A lot.  While not prepared, I was forewarned – throughout building this business I have been a sponge, […]
