25 Jan January 27, 2014 – Dosha Pop’s Peggy Andrews & Partner Pillow’s Alon Schwartz
Peggy Andrews is a recovering lawyer! She is now mostly devoted to bootstrapping her new Arurevic (ancient Indian medicine) candy business. For her, a new business is about a smidgen of a great idea and a lot of really hard work. Her dream is to create an Ayurvedic lollipop company, with each flavor having a certain health benefit. There is a test on the site to see what flavor is best for you and your personality. Her first step in making all natural hard candy was extremely difficult. She studied the basics of sugar and Ayurveda with experts but the rest was up to her trial and error. Peggy loves herbal tea and all things Ayurvedic, and candy! How you can get all at once!
Alon Schwartz has solved one of the world greatest problems! And that is what entrepreneurship is all about! His Partner Pillow reduces all the uncomfortable aspects of cuddling, your arm falling asleep, waking her up to roll away. Now you can sleep together all night with no arm or neck pain. The patent pending design avoids “Coyote Arm” and Alon is here to tell the story of how he got the idea, how he got the product built, and about marketing it now. Great stuff, from start to finish, a primer on building a product based business. Alon is also very active in Entrepreneurs Unpluggd, a cool organization helping entrepreneurs tell their stories.
