Like many women, I have looked at products and thought why didn't I think of that solution. Everyday the long list of potential problems looms in front of us. Still, a solution to the difficulty shouldn't create another problem. That simple statement is the driving force behind one of today's most successful woman entrepreneurs, Debbie Meyer.
Debbie Meyer has been a leader in the home and housewares industry. The woman behind the brand has created numerous products that the busy mom can't live without. Best known for the Debbie Meyer Green Bags, this problem solving woman has numerous products that are staples in our daily lives.
During the 2013 International Home and Housewares Show in Chicago, I had the opportunity to sit down with Ms. Meyer. My brief time with this intriguing woman opened my eyes to the fact that opportunities are everywhere, but we have to be ready to seize them.
Ms. Meyer began her successful career with a simple gadget that all families could use. The Debbie Meyer CakeCutter creates a perfectly sliced, uniform piece of cake every time. With no sharp edges, a child can easily slice a piece of his birthday cake without fear of cutting his fingers. More importantly, the design prevents the server, or a child, from licking their fingers on the icing. No one wants to spread germs. Plus, in today's serving conscious world, you can set the piece size to your liking. Next time you are cutting a birthday cake, you will definitely want this gadget to make your serving simple. The Debbie Meyer CakeCutter retails for $19.99.
With this ingenious serving piece as a starting point, Ms. Meyer's subsequent products reflect problems that occurred in her daily life. For example, how often do you try to reach for a pan and everything comes tumbling out of your cabinets. This experience happened to Ms. Meyer. After having pans come crashing down on her head, the Debbie Meyer GeniusRack was born.
Redesigning cabinets can be expensive, but there is no need with the Debbie Meyer Genius Rack. This adjustable rack helps to organize pots, pans and baking wear in your existing cabinets. The device helps to keep your cookware safe. More importantly your items shouldn't come crashing down on your head. The Debbie Meyer GeniusRack retails for $24.95.
These are just a few of the many items in the Debbie Meyer line of products. Other items include Debbie Meyer UltraLite GreenBoxes™, Debbie Meyer DishwasherPal™, Debbie Meyer GeniusVac™ Licensed from Reynolds®, Debbie Meyer Magnetic Measuring Cups & Spoons™ and several others. A complete list of her products can be found on the Debbie Meyer website.
What is on the horizon for Ms. Meyer? We will have to wait and see, but I know it will be a solution to make my life easier.
