I would venture to guess that most people think the idea of this line of tools becoming a reality is a little far-fetched.  Quite honestly, I can see why.  We’re 5 young women without a background in business or manufacturing.  The whole thing will be pretty difficult to accomplish, but what we do have is a real passion to see this dream of ours become a reality.  I rediscovered this quote by Thoreau from his book Walden and wanted to share it.  Hopefully, it inspires the rest of you to take even your craziest dreams and make them happen.  I’m a firm believer that it all depends on how bad you want something.

“I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours.  He will put some things behind, will pass an invisible boundary; new, universal, and more liberal laws will begin to establish themselves around and within him; or the old laws be expanded, and interpreted in his favor in a more liberal sense, and he will live with the license of a higher order of beings.  In proportion as he simpifies his life, the laws of the universe will appear less complex, and solitude will not be solitude, nor poverty poverty, nor weakness weakness.  If you have built castles in the air, your work need not be lost; that is where they should be.  Now put the foundations under them. ”
