What the H.I.R.L?
Dawn and I started down the entrepreneur pathway 4 years ago. I was dissatisfied, disheartened, and frustrated by bedside nursing, I unknowingly started looking for something I didn’t know I’d find.
The idea for a new nursing tool may have first came to mind back when i was in the National Guard. However, it wasn’t until I was around a group of other passionate, smart open minded people that sparked the encouragement for me to move us forward.
How did i meet these passionate people? Well it was through something called Google Hangouts on Air. I was able to connect with people who truly wanted to help. Albeit it was in exchange for me offering to do a little cooking show of my own called ‘Lookin for good cookin”.
But It was a virtual meeting of a minds, that led to a real life meeting at what is known as the 2014 Denver HIRL (Hangout in real life).
After cooking up a meal with the friends, we participated in several chit chats. One of which involved icebreaker moments. Besides learning strange facts such as one person in the room had 6 toes, we also began discussion on “what would you do if you could”. This was fueled by a little spirited debate and a little spirited liquor.
Long story short, on the flight back home, Dawn and I decided that what do we have to lose? And that’s where the spark of an idea, met the kindling of new friends and ignited the passion for building our dreams.
