What It Takes to Build a Growing Consumer Products Company
How many times have you noticed a problem, an irritation or a challenge, and said to yourself: “Someone should do something about that.”
Or are you the type of person who transforms that inconvenience into a drive to figure out how to solve the problem … and solve it for millions of people?
Missy Kelly decided she’d had enough of dropping and breaking her phone, and together with her husband, she co-founded CatTongue Grips.
It’s an innovative adhesive non-slip grip that can easily be applied to your mobile device, laptop, tablet or case to provide a layer of what she calls “Gription” in your everyday life.
Today we talk:
- What it’s like to invent a product and bring it to market
- What makes Cat Tongue unique
- How she’s scaling her company
- How she made the leap from stay-at-home mom to risk taking entrepreneur
- When to exit your company
- The mindset for success
- And so much more!
