I’m a great guy to work for 98 percent of the time, but the other 2 percent of the time, you’re going to do it my way and that’s it. A great boss is kind, but you have to strong, too. You can’t be a pushover.Robert Herjavec

Entrepreneurs: Ryan Frayne
A Windcatcher is an innovative air catching mattress pad. It uses ‘quick stream inflation’ to blow up an air mattress with just a few breaths. Ryan Frayne watched as his brother struggled and failed to inflate a mattress at the beach. He was sure there are other ways to inflate something, and he was determined to find them.
Ryan went ahead with developing a prototype of an inflatable. He named his prototype ‘Air Bag’ which is easily inflated without the need for a mechanical or a battery-powered pump.
For his first production in 2013, Ryan called out for crowdfunding at Kickstarter, where he impressively tripled his goal amount. He raised a total of $149,405 on his $50,000 goal and officially launched the Windcatcher.
