I can't believe we are celebrating our first year in business! It's been quite a ride! MediFashions have taken the medical and fashion industries by storm and our customers love to look and heal their best and experience, The Healing Power of Fashion®. It's interesting when you start a business you have reasons why you did it and then things evolve and there are reasons that bring you to work everyday. Without a doubt, what keeps me going every single day are the e-mails I receive from people thanking me for doing what I'm doing because I'm giving them the opportunity to feel good about themselves again. What I didn't know was that there are people who are in medical boots for YEARS! There are diabetics who are in Crow boots for the rest of their lives. These were once fashionable women who have been forced into awful medical devices for their health. Their stories are heartwarming and have brought me to tears. It is the most amazing feeling to know that I have brought joy to someone's life! I hope you all have the opportunity to do the same some day. There is no feeling like that in the world!
As for the last year, WOW is all I can say. We launched in February and in April were named a 2013 Leading Moms in Business by Startup Nation. After the Olympics, Gold Medalist, Jordyn Wieber, arrived home in a boot and got a gift of MediFashions from us at her doctor's office that she loved! In early November, I was invited to participate in an Inventor's Competition on the nationally syndicated Steve Harvey Show competing against 5 other inventors for a $20,000 prize. I won and that put CastMedic Designs on the map! Steve Harvey has been gracious enough to air two more segments about MediFashions and that has helped us get the word out and help the injured look and heal their best. In late November, QVC Host, Jacque Gonzales, wore our products on-air while doing a segment with Joan Rivers, AKA, Fashion Police and she apparently loved it! Well-known news anchor, Maureen O'Boyle, found herself in a boot for several weeks in December, and we had her on-air and looking fashionable. And we ended the year on the most amazing note with music sensation, Diana Ross, wearing a Strap-It flower while she performed for the President at Christmas in Washington. Did I mention that we just launched in 2012? What a year!
As for 2013, we started the year off right by being named the January finalist for the 2013 WomenInventorz Woman Inventor of the Year Award. We won't know who wins until 2014 but what an amazing honor. We have so much exciting potential for 2013 and want to thank you, our fans, for helping us spread the word and allowing the injured to look and heal their best and experience, The Healing Power of Fashion®!
