“From instruction to innovation.”
This has been the journey of our Kickass Boomer of the Day, Connie Inukai. After retiring from her position as an adjunct professor, she became a serial entrepreneur, award-winning inventor, author of “How I Got My Product on QVC, The Today Show, and More...In Retirement,” and creator of Write Your Selfie and Grandmapreneur.
She left the University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins University teaching technical writing to invent “Tip ‘n Split,” the first restaurant calculating device with magnifier and light. What made this invention successful was her recognition of a problem that has not been solved yet.
Join me in this episode and learn why Connie is a Kickass Boomer!
