    Business Spotlight-Boomerpreneur Jean Newell

    in Business

    Due to the economy I was recently faced with the challenge of starting over. When my 35-year real estate career came to an end I, like so many other millions of Americans, had to re-examine my life. I fit right into the age group most likely to be laid off; Boomers (age 47-63), too young to retire, too old to start over and the nest egg has crumbled.

    What are the options? Living under a bridge? Winning the Lottery? Both had odds I wasn't willing to explore. It seemed so obvious to me. I went back to the basics of American self-reliance? So, without any formal background in business, finance, manufacturing or distribution I decided to "hire myself" and become an entrepreneur/inventor.

    Everyone said it couldn't be done and I wouldn't be able to survive, much less compete with BIG business. But luckily I didn't listen to them. I combined my creative talents, hobbies and passions, with my business expertise and invented and distributed my own line of innovative products. I successfully marketed my inventions to online stores, gift catalogs, major retail chains and yes even to the coveted electronic retailer QVC.

    Not only did I prove the Nay Sayers wrong I also proved to myself that anything is possible. I'm now able to share my story, advice and experience with other Boomers who may be facing unemployment. I have partnered with the Small Business Development Center and the Women's Business Center (all part of the US Small Business Administration) offering mentoring and training to aspiring entrepreneurs.

    in Lifestyle

    Comedian Dan Nainan has an impressive list of accomplishments. You may have seen him in one of those fun Apple vs. PC commercials or read about him in the New York Times. He's here to share how comedy became a part of his life and how he is inspiring others in his work.

    As a 35 year veteran real estate agent, every year Newco Enterprises' founder Jean Newell, struggled keeping track of the ever increasing small gizmos and gadgets needed for her business.

    She also heard other Realtors complaining of the same problem, not having a place to keep their: palm pilots, cell phones, reading glasses, pen, lock box key, and Blackberry, etc. Jean decided to hold focus groups to determine what was needed to solve this rapidly growing problem.

    Several months and just as many prototypes later she created the first "high tech" tool belt. With the help of other associates they decided on the name- the PUP (acronym for personal utility pouch).

    Due to the easy access and stylish design, the PUP soon attracted a wide variety of consumers with their own special PUP uses.
