It’s hard to believe we are at the end of 2012. As an entrepreneur, this year was full of amazing milestones for my company, CastMedic Designs. After being told by an industry “expert” that only 1% of all products ever make it to market, I launched the MediFashions line in February. The response has been overwhelming and I have found that my favorite part of my job is reading the e-mails I get from our customers from all across the country who have found us and then share the positive impact we are having on their recovery.
The one thing I hear over and over from our customers is, “Why aren't you in my doctor’s office?” I am excited to say that we are putting a distribution network in place and you should see us in doctors’ offices across the country by late 2012/early 2013.
The company has received some incredible recognition this year as well. In April, CastMedic Designs was named one of 2012 Top 200 Leading Moms in Business by Start-up Nation and just in November, I competed in an inventor’s competition on the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Show and was selected by a panel of industry expert judges as, “Steve’s Top Inventor.” That award included $20,000 in seed money to further the development of the product line. At the end of November, we will have an encore appearance on the Steve Harvey Show when our products are used in an “Ask Steve” segment.
I can honestly say the year has been surreal! It truly does take a village and there have been so many amazing people who have helped me along this journey. With Thanksgiving arriving tomorrow, I am truly thankful for all of the amazing people in my life! Without all of you this would never have been possible.
Here is to an exciting 2013… Cheers!
