First Day!

Okay, so this is not really the first day of our process. Jordan and I have been throwing ideas around for inventions for over five years. The reason we have stuck with it is, not because we're crazy, but because everyone of our ideas has turned into a product we've seen in stores! This was absolutely frustrating, but also the motivation to continue.

"Cindi" was Jordan's idea and I wasn't too hyped about it, honestly. I was inwardly fuming because all of our other "great ideas" had been marketed by others, who were quicker and now making the money!!!

Oddly enough, an idea that had been percolating in my mind for almost two years happened to be perfect for "part" of Cindi. I didn't see it at first, but Jordan did. It helped me get on the bandwagon again. (Thanks friend!)

So, here we are, almost one year into working on Cindi. We've almost got the engineer paid off and will hopefully have a fabulous prototype very soon! Next week, Jordan flies out to meet with a company that produces some of Cindi's cousins. It's great people like this, who have already made it, that are such a blessing!

We have a long road ahead of us, but we're expecting it to be fun! I hope our experiences can help someone out there just starting as well, and of course, we would love tips sent to us!

Will write again soon and let you know how Jordan's meeting goes,
