My entrepreneurial journey has not been easy, but it has certainly been amazing! I disrupted the cloth diaper industry 20 years ago with a product called FuzziBunz Diapers, a diaper I invented to end diaper rash for my then infant son. With $5 and a true entrepreneurial spirit, I was able to grow a company to multi-million dollar status in less than 3 years by bootstrapping alone. It was a bumpy ride, and one that I swore I would make easier for people one day.
In the last 20 years, I have seen a lot of success and several failures. My tenacity and grit have enabled me to fail forward every single time and find the opportunity in what others might deem a catastrophe, at best.
After appearing on Shark Tank in 2012, I exited my company and started consulting for other startups while I waited for inspiration to strike yet again. After 7 long years of waiting, it did! My new startup, Youni Leakproof Underwear is on target to launch Spring 2020.
I am passionate about coaching other consumer product entrepreneurs to give them the opportunities that I did not have when I was just getting started. I want to help them reach for the stars and actually... catch them.
