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.
