AcousticSheep's Trip to Sam's Club's "30 Minutes to Win It" Event March 2015

We pitched our products to Sam's Club as part of their annual "30 Minutes to Win It" event a couple of weeks ago in Arkansas.

The Trip

My sales director and I traveled to Bentonville, AR on March 16-17 to pitch to Sam's Club! We were invited to the second annual "30 Minutes to Win It" event when some buyers stopped by our booth early in the morning during CES in January. The event was a bit like Shark Tank where they cut to the chase very quickly. 

National Sleep Awareness Week

After a long day of work and play, we often can’t wait for bedtime. But for some, falling asleep can be elusive and stressful. In fact, most people experience difficulty falling asleep at some point in their lives. National Sleep Awareness Week is an opportunity for us to stop and think about our sleep habits, realize how much they impact our well-being, and take a step towards improving them.

This year, National Sleep Awareness Week takes place March 2–8, 2015; which coincidently ends on the day we lose an hour of sleep to Daylight Saving Time.

Erie, PA Is Better Than Silicon Valley

People ask, "Erie, PA? Not Silicon Valley?"
Here are the reasons why I can't find a better location to start a technology company than in Erie.

1. Fun, easy-going employees who not only understand teamwork, but truly pull together in such a way that we have a multiplicative effect (the synergy that you hear about but rarely experience). It shone brightly during this holiday season and throughout CES, and I am so proud of every single employee and so honored that they are working for us.
