Scot Weiss loves what he's doing but admits it's a daily struggle. Weiss left a promising career in finance to chase an American dream -- inventing a product and starting a company. He has invented what he calls the equivalent of a "push broom for the pool" and says it will remove debris from residential and commercial pools up to five times faster than a standard skimmer. 

But even good ideas can be extremely difficult to get produced, distributed and sold. Weiss is discovering the importance of belief and the power of persistence.

For more information about Scot's product, e-mail him at info@parachuteskimmer.com or visit www.parachuteskimmer.com.

    Great product Scott.  Keep going after the PR.  It will pay off.  Like you, I have a fledging one person company I founded just a couple years ago.  This year will be close to break even.  Next year I may have a small (very small) profit. On one hand it is tough.  On the other it is very rewarding.  

    Does GB have a forum for people like us that were crazy enough to start a business in their 50's, 60's or 70's?

    Keep up the good work!
