What do you do? 

Currently our business is in the startup stage as a product development company.  We have developed 2 products so far and have another one that we are currently developing.   Both products we will be selling on Amazon, other marketplaces, and our own website.  We have also been in discussions with retailers.  The first two products are the Wraptor Claw which is the Ultimate Lifting Tool, designed to help tradesman, DIYer’s, and Farmer Ranchers, to carry drywall, plywood, buckets, and other items.  The second product is the TackleWrap which is a fishing wrist wrap that stores all your tackle on your wrist and allows easily interchanging tackle on the fly. 

 

What inspired you to start your business? 

I’ve always been a person who likes creating and building things.  The mission statement for the company is to build products and services that make peoples’ lives better and more enjoyable. 

 

What's special about your business? 

We are a small family owned business.

What is your relationship with SCORE? 
SCORE client
What influenced you to seek help from SCORE? 

I’ve always been a believer that if you want to short circuit your learning curve you need to start hanging out with people who have accomplished what you want to accomplish.  Working with SCORE mentors who have built businesses and have special expertise has made my journey a lot smoother!

How SCORE helped. 

SCORE provided technology consulting, product development, and business development support. Working with SCORE has gotten me to the point where I have developed two products.  We are at the stage now where we are getting ready to launch and officially start serving our customers. 

What would you tell a fellow business owner about SCORE? 

You need to figure out WHY you want to start your business? Without having a strong why it’s going to be difficult for you to fight through the difficult times and keep going.  On the other side of difficult times is bliss, so it’s worth it if you have a strong WHY.  Your why can be your company’s mission statement, a particular purpose your trying to serve, or a problem your trying to solve.
