About

Hello Everyone I am Taylor Baloney, founder and CEO of “Find My Everything”. I would like to share with everyone the story of how I came up with the idea of the tracking devices and why I started this company. I am a former flight attendant. I worked for Republic Airlines, a regional company that flew for American and United Airlines. I loved to fly and travel all over and experience new and exciting things in each place. But something I didn’t enjoy was losing items, especially since I traveled so much.

One particular instance was when I lost my phone. As a flight attendant I had most of the announcements that I made on my phone. So on each flight, I would use my phone to read the announcements, and then put my phone back in my R.O.N. bag. One day after reading my announcements, I put my phone into what I thought was my bag, until later learning otherwise. When the flight landed I searched frantically for my phone. I searched behind the seats, in my bag, in my pockets, EVERYWHERE! I was searching nervously and just couldn’t find my phone. At that point I had come to the conclusion that a passenger must have stolen my phone from my R.O.N. bag after I put it back in there. I called my mom from another flight attendant’s phone and asked her to search for my phone using “Find My Phone”. She tracked the phone and found the location of the phone and emit a beeping sound from my phone. She also left several text messages on the phone, threatening to call the police to whoever had my phone. It took over five hours for someone to finally reply to my mother, who was smart enough to leave her contact information. The woman called my mom and explained to her that she found my phone in her bag. And that it took so long to respond to my mother’s messages because her bag was in the trunk, so she couldn’t hear the beeping sound that was emitted from the phone. My mother apologized to the lady since we now discovered that I was the one in the wrong. The lady was kind enough to offer to ship the phone back to me. The next day I had FedEx send the phone to the location I was staying at. I was blessed enough to find my phone and have someone nice enough who was willing to help me get my phone back. I definitely learned my lesson about being more responsible. But in the midst of my mistake, came a wonderful idea to help people find all of their missing items. After my incident, I wanted to create a device that could help people find all their important missing items. People not only lose phones, but misplace backpacks, purses, luggage, keys, and more. This is how Find My Everything Inc. came about. I wanted to create a company that sells GPS tracking devices to people to help find and locate anything that is important to them. Our mission at Find My Everything Inc. is “to protect what’s closest to your heart.”

Rewards

Risks and challenges

Find My Everything Inc. is a new company that is working on bringing the best quality products to its customers. The company has created the prototype. We are now waiting on the money needed to purchase the inventory. We have a contract with our manufacturing company in which we need to purchase a minimum of 1,000 units. With the help of the Kickstarter backers our company will be able to complete this order. Once we put in the order to the manufacturing company for the products, it will take about 4-6 months for the order to be completed and sent out to the customers.

The manufacturing company that Find My Everything Inc. is working with is a foreign company outside the USA. But the company is very reputable and has specialized in creating GPS tracking devices for over 10 years now.

We are confident that once we raise the necessary funds, we will be able to mass produce the devices for the customers. We have tested the prototype and its functionality. We are confident that the users will be very satisfied with the device.

We have worked very hard to minimize any risks and challenges for the Find My Everything Inc. backers on Kickstarter.
