Startup Stories: Monster Defense

Monster Defense

Tell us about your entrepreneurial product or service.
Monster Defense is a line of products providing security to children as well as providing parents an easy and fun solution for getting rid of monsters.

What inspired you to launch your business idea?
Monster Defense all started when our nephew told us about the monsters in his room that kept him up at night. From that day on, I couldn't stop thinking of what a fun concept this could be. My husband then got involved and helped me bring it all together. My husband has since written the book, “Monsters, Beware!” which will be available February 2014. We hope to expand the brand with more products someday.

What problem does your business or organization solve?
Childhood fear.

What has been your biggest challenge as an entrepreneur and how are you working to overcome it?
Realizing that not everything will go perfectly or as planned. Every step along the way has taken more time than I had anticipated (naming our company and filing for a trademark, deciding on a logo, finding the right bottles, labels, finding the right illustrator for the book, I could go on!).

Give us one word that people might use to describe you.
Ambitious

How has Project Eve helped you and/or your business?
Project Eve keeps me motivated and helps me realize I'm not alone in this crazy entrepreneurial world!

Set a routine with your children. Kids like routine and it makes parents' lives easier as well.
