First off thanks for looking at the page and if you like what you see thank you again, because thanks to that I'll be able to spread my geeky-ness around the world and if you don't like what you see, send me some feedback. I would love to the chance for possible enhancements on future versions of the water bottle. So let's get to it.  It started as a childhood martial arts inspired dream and turned into a challenge caused on a fateful day by good friends who never let me get away with anything.

paper advanced to digital then spec'ed out

Take a start like that and add six years of me living the Barnie Stintson "challenge accepted" point of view and you got basically where I am now! On the verge of getting this bottle out to the geeks, closet geeks (we call them artsy) and all the other awesome people out there. During the six years, I gained thick skin and priceless knowledge and I'm still learning which is why I need your help.  I still need more inventory so that when I go to other events, companies and other interested parties I can, well, sell something. Plus I still have plans to advance this project to level and places unseen before, but first let's come back to here. So here, I'm looking for your help and thinking practical by setting the funds needed to $1,000. I'm confident I'll do better than that, but I've become wise enough to account for anything. So there you have it! Help me make more of this dream come true.

 Once the campaign is over it will take approximately a month and a half to have the order filled by my manufacturers and another fifteen days to arrive at my distribution center located in Rincon, Georgia. This includes the extra inventory that will be used for the May 2015 rollout and also 'drum roll please' all of your bottles that I will be sending out to YOU the great supporter of this project. So let's get started.

Risks and challenges

The world always has obstacles, but I like to call them lessons. There are bottle companies everywhere with deeper pockets, but I've got something special in that where they are too big to change while I'm small and nimble. If I keep that ability to change as well as keep my ear towards my customers, I can use all of those lessons I've learned to my advantage so that I can grow this bottle idea into any dream I desire. Nay-sayers are always out there in fact I've had setbacks of loan companies and agencies saying the bottle is too odd shaped and impossible to make. Well to them I say what I always say; "Nothing is impossible it just requires more thought" and the NeoGourd will just be one of the times that I prove that to be true. Basically with your help this project can grow into the new cool thing that's in home, offices, gyms and any other awesome place around the world. I just need one shot that's all and each and every one of you out there have the means to make that possible with backing this project at any level. So give me a shot I won't let you down.
