An engineer by trade, but an entrepreneur at heart. My name is Darin.  I work a typical 9-5 job that I have held for a large corporation for over 15 years.  Prior to that, I served in the military for almost 5 years.  I have been blessed with a lovely wife of 13 years and three busy boys.

In mid 2014, I decided to follow my dream.  I am very early in the process.  I have formed an LLC; performed market research; built a website (and this blogsite); learned social media; found a manufacturer; trying to lay the groundwork to take this product to market.

I make no claims to be an expert.  I have never launched an successful startup or run a businesses. I don’t have tons of money to dump into this business.  I have a mortgage like most everyone else. I do not have a degree in business or marketing. I am just a regular guy like most of you.

Today is 12/14/2014.  This blog site is just a few days old. There’s a handful of blog posts that will provide a little bit of background.  Follow me along this journey as I share with you, every step along the way.  I’ll share the good and the bad, my mistakes and my success.  As Kevin O’ Leary would say, “I only have an idea at this point”, but as Mark Cuban says, “You have to be willing to grind” – and I am doing just that and getting it figured out.  Follow along as I turn this “idea” into a business and learn with me.
