About

I am raising funds to make my product a fun and cuddly household name. My plan with the money that I raise is to go through the patent process, market my idea to companies that can help me become successful, and make a profit on my product that will help my family to jump start our new adventures on a piece of property that we purchased. I plan to use my resources to find ways to show everyone that the Slothy can be used for much more than just a blanket. The fidget fingers on the Slothy help children with concentration and assist those that need to be constantly moving with relief when they are trying to relax or keep still. It is no news to us all that children and adults alike in our world are dealing with so many hardships. Having a built in "Slothy Hug" would allow us to send a hug to those we love, those who have lost, and even those who have a hard time with physical interactions with others. Please help me make my Slothy dream a reality and bring sloth smiles and hugs to everyone who needs one for an affordable price. Thank you for reviewing my product. My family thanks you and we look forward to making the Slothy a hit.

Risks and challenges

The risks and challenges for completing my project mostly begin and end with myself. I have always been a creative person with many ideas, but I rarely find a way to believe that others can see the potential in my ideas.

I need to go through the process of patenting my product, which is a challenge in itself. After that, I will need to create a marketing portfolio to get my product manufactured and distributed.

If I can get the money I need to start this process, I know I can make something happen for my family. If I can show everyone that the product is fun and useful, I can help my husband with finances and contribute more to my family.

The challenges are so many... but I am willing to do it wrapped in a Slothy to comfort me!
