CNN Start Small, Think Big feature on Bad Day Box!

Wow. CNN.   Around Memorial Day I got an email from a producer at CNN saying she saw my Forbes piece and asked me if I was interested in filming for a segment called Start Small, Think Big.

Thank you for funding & Expletives 2.0

Friends & Family, 30 Days of Funding Complete! It is hard to believe this campaign is complete. I first talked to my friends about this idea in late February 2019. I created the bones of a brand to launch to close family and friends in December 2019, with intent to crowdfund in early 2020.
