Tell us about your business.

I am still trying to get my business up and running. The hardest part so far is getting a manufacturer to work with me. I don't have the funds to get to the next level. Everyone that I have shown this to wants one. I built one for myself a few years ago after a shoulder surgery and really think this is that something special.

What makes your business stand out?

I have a one of a kind product that is awaiting patent. Everyone buys mattresses. 83% of people sleep on their side or back. This is going to be a giant in the mattress industry.

What's the best business advice you've received?

The only advice that I've gotten is to get my product out there.
