What's your business, and who are your customers?

I sell knee pillows primarily to side sleepers to properly align their hips, preventing back, hip, and knee pain.

Tell us about yourself

As a side sleeper, I suffered from knee pain while I slept. I tried several of the “knee pillows “ on the market at the time. They were essentially leg spacers, which were very uncomfortable, and there was no way for them to stay in place all night.

What's your biggest accomplishment as a business owner?

Changing the look of knee pillows currently on the market.

What's one of the hardest things that comes with being a business owner?

The buck stops here!

What are the top tips you'd give to anyone looking to start, run and grow a business today?

  1. Patent your Invention.
  2. Partner with businesses in your field to get exposure.
  3. Use Social Media to make consumers aware of your product.
