I’m a struggling entrepreneur.

I’m a struggling entrepreneur. I became an entrepreneur by accident. Let me explain, I was taking a brain test… WHY? Because I’m a stroke survivor and it’s a fact that the mind will go first. If you catch it early, it’s possible it can be treated. Anyways I ended up designing a fun-meaningful cuddling spoon gift for couples. It was based on my life; from being a strong healthy young man to a wheelchair bound 24/7/365 disabled person who need continent care by others, BUT even though my product was based from my life it is designed for you and...

Confused and Under Pressure!

Mr. EMAIL MESSAGE … How’s it going? I need your advice. I truly feel that I need some serious help with my Cuddle Spoons business. Can I ask you a few questions; I really feel under pressure and I’m so confused? Let me tell you a few things first. I had my purpose for creating my spoons, that is why I challenged myself and I decided to give up everything in hopes that this idea will work; that was in 2013–14. Really I wasn’t in it for the money because honestly let’s say that I do make a ton of money, what...

Who am I?  by Ken Vantroba  AKA CuddleMan

My life drastically changed in December of 1988.  Why? At the age of 26, I suffered a severe and debilitating stroke that immediately left me unable to move, breath or eat.  I was also unable to ever work again.  That left me totally dependent upon state and federal assistance.  I don’t like that to this day! My family wasn’t prepared!  I wasn’t prepared!  We had to adjust on the fly, so to speak.  Needless to say, life became very difficult.  Since my stroke happened in 1988 there wasn’t much the medical community could do for me, so my life was...

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the Accidental Entrepreneur

Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI) and the Accidental Entrepreneur   It’s a well known fact that when a person has some sort of brain injury their thinking ability will fail them first.  When I began to recover from my stroke I always worried that another attack would happen to me.  To put my mind at ease I would periodically create tests or challenges to keep my mind busy. Funny thing - coming up with the tests was a great challenge all on its’ own.  After 26 years of regular mind testing and challenges one day I came up with a real...

Did you ever have a great idea or invention you wanted to share with others?

So what happened?  Did you put your idea on the back burner or did you make it into a business? Before I tell you what I did, let me give you a little background.  On December 11th 1988, I suffered a severe stroke which left me totally physically disabled.  In other words, I can’t walk, I can’t speak well, I only have the use of my right arm, I rely on others to care for me daily, and I haven’t been able to work for the last 29 years. BUT on the other hand, I have two college degrees –...
