I've loved Edison Nation and my EN family for seven years now.
When I found Edison Nation I was in the depths of inventing The Cupcake Rack and excited about having my invention manufactured in China. It was such a fun journey and each step I took forward was done quite blindly as I had no idea what I was doing, but had faith to keep moving forward. There were tears of excitement as we climbed over obstacles and many tears of disappointment with each rejection and failure. But we kept moving forward, learning a ton about inventing and making slow progress. I was so excited about our journey that I began sharing about it in the forums. Everyone was so nice and supportive and seemed to be almost as excited about our progress as we!
Then, without warning, our lives were turned upside down. An horrific tragedy occurred, and afterward God granted us a miracle. We've been experiencing this miracle for six and a half years now. Writing about it in the same thread, I found out just how great of a family I had here at EN. The love, support, compassion, genuine kindness and prayers that surrounded me and my family were beyond compare.
The Cupcake Rack grew from an idea, to a real product being sold to real people, appearance on The Steve Harvey Show, exhibiting on Capitol Hill, winning a pitch competition on MSNBC Your Business with JJ Ramberg, being sold on HSN, podcasts and tv appearances, being sold by Allstar as The Tasty Bouquet, appearing on the cover of Inventors Digest, and now as a Mentor on Everyday Edisons. We have come Full Circle and so much of those great opportunities were due to our relationships we've made here at Edison Nation. How could I possibly thank everyone at Edison Nation and my entire EN family...
I've met some and others I hope to meet one of these days; Louis, Scott, John and Chrissy, Greg, Marvin, Mia, Aimee, Derrick, James, Frank, Chris, Michael, Larry, KC "), Kim, and my entire EN Family. I love you all~!
Thank you for making this journey so much fun and for all the help you've given me in times of tears and the support in times of triumph. I cannot thank you enough!
