For the past 6 months or so I have been tweeting repeatedly on a sunday night as part of Theo Paphitis’s
#SBS also known as Small Business Sundays!
#SBS is a way of getting Major Brand Recognition from Theo himself as every monday he picks 6 businesses
from the thousands of people who tweet him and tweets about your business or products!
Finally after 6 long months we have finally been chosen!!
My phone went in to absolute meltdown on Monday once we had been chosen with everybody congratulating us and asking
about my business and products which was fantastic and very overwhelming!
We have had a fantastic week at Gripaid and I think that this is a great way for New Small Businesses to get there name out
their and people to know about their products and business.
Not only is it a great way to get Major Brand Recognition from the people but also one of the UK’s most successful entrepneurs
Theo Paphitis and I am extremely greatful!

A Day on Site..
I spent a day on site with my good friend Kenny Mcginity and his lads.
They was testing out our versatile Gripeeze Home & Garden Gloves.
The lads had an instant liking to the flexibility and comfort of the gloves! They couldn’t believe how strong they was
and how the weight of the render and the hawk disappeared through our unique strapping system.
hand when not needed! It can be easily applied to a bucket of water etc to take away all the dead weight up the arm.
Thanks so much to Kenny and his lads for trying out our gloves and giving us their feedback!

More great feedback from Beth..
Beths been telling us that now she is using our Gripeeze Elastic Tubes
she has started to see muscle definition reappearing in her left arm thanks to being able to hold on to the
gym equipment. This is now enabling her to start to re-use her muscles again.
We asked Beth what she thought about our Gripeeze glove and here is what she said ..
”I think it’s great and I can now do more reps because even when my grip gets tired or weaker, I can keep going
regardless because my hand is still Velcro on. My mum used to have to hold my hand on a machine as my grip
would come loose but now I can do exercises on my own as my hand doesn’t slip off with the
Gripeeze glove. It’s a really good piece of equipment!”
Beths also now registered for another Step Out event for The Stroke Association.
This will be Beths 4th charity walk which is fantastic!
We will keep you updated on Beths progression and rehabilitation with the use of
our Gripeeze Glove and also Hills Physical Developments.

20 years of QVC promotion..
Since becoming a vendor on QVC, it has opened all kinds of doors for my business.
I felt quite honored when QVC asked me to be a part of their feature in the Daily Telegraph on how they have helped new innovative products launch into the market.
The day consisted going down to QVC Headquarters at Chiswick and meeting the Daily Telegraph Journalist
Jean Vernon. She was a lovely lady and made me feel totally at ease speaking about my experiences of how I came up with the idea and to this present day of selling on QVC.
We then got invited back up into the studio with Richard Johnson, QVC’s Gardening Expert to do a photo shoot.
This was such great fun as it also gave us time to watch different companies sell live in the background.
not knowing how the article would turn out. I was first in the 24hr garage to buy a copy as soon as it came in!
The article is fantastic and a huge thank you to Jean.
This is having a great knock on effect as it is starting to make my Gripeeze Glove a household name!
Here is the link to view the article online – Check it out!

Great but chilly trip to Prague..
I was fortunate last week to experience the beautiful city of Prague plus incorporating 2 successful meetings.
I had a chance to explore The Old town and visit Europe’s Largest Castle.
I met up with Vera from the company Stamed on the Thursday morning for a meeting which
went really well. She loved the simplicity and the strength of the gloves
Sampling the local cuisine Beef Stroganoff and also the local tipple.
Friday morning i was picked up by a Prague based company DMA and met with Thomas
and he introduced me to their family run business of 15 years. A very impressive set-up!
Stood outside the famous clock and watched the twelve o’ clock chime show.
The meetings went really well, I can see quite a few trips to Prague this year.
