In 2013, Michael gave 2 weeks’ notice in his $140,000 a year robotics engineering job. He was tired of spending too much time doing things that weren’t improving his quality of life. Michael decided to embrace his inner desire and started his own entrepreneurial journey-- by quitting his job, selling everything he owned, and living out of his car with just two suitcases of clothes. Michael came up with the idea for KeySmart simply because he was sick of always carrying a bunch of keys that would stab his thigh. After inventing the prototypes and raising nearly $330,000 on Kickstarter, he successfully brought these efficient key-organizing tools to life. And now, besides the basic KeySmart that would save people valuable space and eliminate jingling noises in their pockets, the KeySmart Pro with smart location tracking is also on the market, so no one will ever have to worry about losing the keys again! Despite the success of KeySmart, Michael is still taking a small salary of only $40,000 a year. He puts everything back into product development and business growth, for his happiness comes from being motivated and creating great products that keep customers excited.   Terry Beard - Retail Chain Founder and Author of Squelched: Succeeding in Business and Life by Finding Your Voice [caption id="attachment_25690" align="alignright" width="150"] Terry Beard[/caption] Terry Beard is the founder of Beard Frame Shops and Beards Online Picture Framing.
