I just wanted to share with you the latest news that once again the Redema Ottoman Footrest has reached the Finalist stage with Edison Nation, a group that helps inventors (I like the term product developer, myself) get their products to market. You may have seen their show on PBS.
I reached the finalist stage for the first time this summer with Bed, Bath and Beyond via Edison Nation, but did not succeed in being selected at that time. I’m in the running for some other opportunities with Bed, Bath and Beyond, as well as some other fine companies, but it will be some months before I know how those turn out.
This recent achievement of reaching Finalist status is with a much bigger retailer, and I confess I don’t know if I’m supposed to tell. Suffice it to say it is the largest in the world. It is also one of the most challenging to contact with new ideas. So, I have to say I’m just a little excited that the Redema will at least get a passing glance from some powerful eyes. (I’ll still have to wait a number of weeks before I know if I’ve achieved the Success level, but Thanksgiving will certainly be abundant in every way if I should!)
I’m thrilled I’ve gotten this far, but it has been very satisfying to know how much the Redema has helped so many people. Thank you to those of you who have been willing to test out this new product, and even more thanks to those of you who have graciously shared your stories in return. They are priceless.
I truly hope the day will come soon you can proudly say, “I got one of the originals,” as your friends and family go to buy a Redema Ottoman Footrest for themselves in a well-known store. Then our wonderful little secret for portable and adjustable comfort will be out, won’t it?
Here’s to your comfort,
