It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Yea
Happy Holidays everyone! As we gear up for the all the wonderful holidays ahead and the new year, I wanted to write to you all and say thank you for being supporters and readers of my blog. As I reflect back on 2014, it’s been quite a year for me personally and professionally. The best part, of course, was the birth of my daughter, Isabella. What’s also pretty incredible is that my business I have spent the last year and a half working on is still alive and kicking and is responsible for creating my daughter. It’s true when they said, “I’m not only the president, I’m also a client!” My wife and family are so supportive of my entrepreneurial spirit and my desire to take my invention, The Semenette®, and not only turn it into a reality but have success as well. For anyone that runs their own business, you can surely relate to the fact that it’s a labor of love. You have to love what you do and be willing to put in endless hours to make it work.
As luck would have it, last week my whole household got the stomach flu. It started with my daughter, then my wife, and then me and of course, I got it really bad. I was in bed all day on Tuesday barely able to move but knowing that the next day, I was scheduled to exhibit at a great local called Mass Innovation Night. I was chosen from a group of applicants to exhibit my product to other innovators, business people and entrepreneurs alike. It was a huge opportunity for me and I had done tons to prepare for it. What I did not prepare for was the dreaded stomach flu! When I woke up on the day of the event, I thankfully was not throwing up but felt like I had been hit by a mack truck. But, entrepreneurs never sleep so it was time to literally pull myself up and get to the event. In the end, I am so happy to say it was all worth it. Despite feeling like utter crap, I was voted favorite product of the night and took home 5,000 American Airlines points for free airline tickets! I also met some incredible people and am thrilled to be a part of the MIN alumni network!
Anyhow, it’s been a year filled with ups, downs, highs and lows but at the end of the day no matter what, I am beyond grateful to everyone that has supported me and my mission to bring fun and function into the bedroom with my sexy invention. It’s humbling to have such support from friends and even from strangers that just appreciate hard work.
Since next week mostly everyone is taking some days off (I hope you are at least), I won’t be posting next week so I want to wish everyone a happy, safe and healthy holiday and New Year. I've got a lot more in store for you in 2015 so stay tuned, keep reading and keep making life fun and sexy! My best to you all!
