Where we are now is a very long way from the day I auditioned in Saskatoon in February 2010. Less than 2 years ago I showed up at the audition with 2 socks that I had bought the night before and somehow convinced the producers to have me, my family and our product idea to never lose socks again come to Toronto and be a part of Dragons' Den!
We dressed the kids up in outfits that matched the five Dragons. Twitter pictures from the taping before we arrived helped us to match up Carson, Ellie and Levi with exactly what Robert, Kevin and Jim were wearing.
The experiences we have had because of Brett's generosity have gone above and beyond the investment of money that he made in Snappy Socks.
Here is my amazing sales rep Karen with me at our first ever display in a store!
Some of the E Children customers became part of the shoot. Such a cute baby!

Brett arranged for my Mom and I to attend a conference in Vancouver with Ellen DeGeneres and our socks along with other Dragons' Den products were part of the Swag Bags for the speakers. We were guests at the Saskatchewan Premier's Dinner and on Tuesday we will be going to his Pitch Party at the University of Saskatchewan. The most rewarding experience of all has been flying to Mexico as a group of 60 people to build 3 homes for deserving families through Homes of Hope. It was life changing.
Karen and her family have been amazing. Here they are picking up our first order of socks with their sons and trucks! None of this would have been possible without her and her family believing in what Snappy Socks could become!
Karen has given up space in her garage for socks!
