It all started with a little snafu...

I didn't expect to start a company just because my (spare) tampon fell out
(of my useless pants pocket) at the gym and I got mad, but that’s really
what happened ;)

Talk about an accidental entrepreneur…that would be me!  What the heck…
sometimes you’re just going along and all of a sudden life makes other plans.  
I had no idea what I was in for that sunny day in July… I just went to go workout 
like I always did...and ended up leaving the club with a whole new perspective
on life...
PortaPocket was born!

I filed for a patent and trademarked the name PortaPocket while simultaneously
embarking on the odyssey to the unknown…product development. Although I
had 17 year history in special events equipment sales and marketing, I had no
background in this particular subject but just took the leap and made my way
through. After all… great ideas aren’t worth much if they’re not acted upon…
and this idea had taken over my brain and wouldn’t let go. So on I went! Little
did I know that the idea itself was just the tip of the iceberg to the herculean
tasks hiding underneath the surface, but, hey, nothing ventured nothing gained.

It took ~2-1/2 yrs in development and that was a rather interesting journey in itself…
one where I was measuring all kinds of people’s body parts while keeping a straight face 
and explaining to them how I was going to make a solution so they could strap lipstick or cell phone (etc) onto their leg.

Amusing and wacky as it sounds, it's been enormously gratifying to see my little creation come to life and bring such
benefit to so many. Our first patent issued in 2010 and we’ve been thrilled to have been sought out and appreciated by
people who represent a tremendous cross section of humanity. We’ve been privileged to work with and provide solutions
