Dynomighty began when I borrowed $300 from my Dad and invented my first product a link-less Magnetic Bracelet an idea I had from discarded magnets I found in the trash at my day job.
I was an artist at the time and I had an exhibition of my photography and performance art where I had left samples of the bracelet with the receptionist of the gallery.
The bracelet sold out but I had no sales of my art, this convinced me to take a shot at launching Dynomighty as a full time gig. I felt like this was my one shot to start a business and escape the 9-to-5 life and I went for it.
Leaving the certainty of a day job pushed me to invent more products like Mighty Wallets® and I was always experimenting in ways to better sell, market and distribute my products.
In December of 2006 my first YouTube video, the Magnetic Bracelet Video, became a viral hit and was featured on the main page of YouTube launching my company into international recognition.
I hope the Dynomighty Story to be an example for others who seek to broaden their own horizons, challenge their own comfort zones and who intuitively feel a need to BE MIGHTY!
When I started out I kept fortune cookies taped to my computer monitor as way to motivate myself everyday. In May of 2015 I began a street art project on my birthday as a way of spreading some inspiration and motivation into the streets and neighborhoods of NYC.
Each flyer that had 10 tabs of inspirational or motivational phrases that could be torn off by passers by. Every week the flyers are updated with new quotes. Each flyer can be downloaded on the BE MIGHTY project website shared on social media with the #BEMIGHTY on Instagram @bemighty.
The goal of the project is to spread inspiration to anyone in need of a positive message to; just keep trying, hang in there a little longer, stay strong and BE MIGHTY! We all need a little encouragement once in awhile weather we are setting goals or being challenged by life itself.
The BE MIGHTY message is a rallying cry for all the dreamers, revolutionaries and visionaries out there as well as the shy, meek and humble that just need a nudge and acknowledgement that they too can go for their dreams!
