Is it possible to do business on this to explain to children how to tie shoelaces? And help them do it comfortably. It turns out yes.
Primary school teacher Eileen Sloan watched her students torment for a long time, trying to tie shoelaces on their boots (sneakers, sneakers).
Unable to bear their suffering, she decided to help them. But so that they learn to tie the shoelaces themselves.
She took a piece of cardboard, cut holes in it and showed her nonsense, in what order and where to thread the lace to make a durable bow out of it.
Realizing that her idea worked perfectly (and the students using this cardboard themselves mastered the difficult process of tying shoelaces), Eileen realized that she was an inventor and businessman.
She found one company that made a prototype of plastic for her, patented her simple device, and opened a business for the production and sale of these rectangles with holes.
Of course, she’s done well that she turned such a tedious product as a teaching aid into a bright (and even collection) plastic. Children will be happy to use such cards.
Eileen not only corny sells her cards from her website (including in bulk). She managed to establish cooperation with the famous largest store Nordstrom (selling shoes).
How was she able to do this?
She recorded a presentation and training video, this:
And just sent it to Nordstrom management. Now her invention of tying shoelaces is sold in several dozen Nordstrom branches in the United States (and will soon be sold in similar stores in Canada).
Now Eileen had no time to teach the most thoughtless kids the ABCs and the basics of mathematics – she had to leave school. After all, a business woman does not work for a salary, but for a profit. And, as indicated in her presentation video, her target audience is 18 million children aged 4 to 8, who have to learn how to tie shoelaces using her technology.
