I am a 43-year-old widowed mother of three. Handy Burp'ems™ started in 2002, but due to a major heartbreak in 2010, I had to put everything on hold. My husband, who was my high school sweetheart, and I had been together for 17 years. He suddenly passed away in January of 2010. He was undergoing chemotherapy for cancer and passed away due to a blood clot.
Our hearts were completely broken. Our children were little, only seven-, five- and two-years-old. Needless to say, just getting up and living each day with a broken heart was tough enough, I still had two businesses to run so I was able to provide for my family.
My biggest priority was helping my children deal with the grief of losing their dad as I was dealing with my own. He was our world. My husband had a Kiddie Cuts™ hair salon he just opened and I had my licensed daycare business. I had to put something on hold and it was the Handy Burp'ems™.
My husband was my biggest fan. He was the one who pushed me to turn my Handy Burp'ems™ into a business. He helped me with the paperwork for the patent before he got sick. It was a very emotional and bittersweet moment when I received the patent in the mail 20 months after he passed away. He would have been SO proud of me!
I never let my Handy Burp'ems™ dream go, though. It's been a dim fire inside me since 2010. It's time to bring it back. I want my kids to know that their mom never gave up on her dream and that she never quit. I hope they learn that when you follow your heart AND work hard, anything is possible. I hope you love Handy Burp'ems™ as much as I do!
