Lost your keys ... AGAIN??

Linda Nagamine

My days often started frantically searching for keys wasting 5, 10, 15 minutes or more every morning. Yes, I’m embarrassed to say I was often LATE for work. I tried everything that promised to solve my problem but nothing worked and tech gadgets only made things worse!

One rainy night after leaving work, I headed to my car parked in a dark, open lot. As I neared my car I reached in my handbag for my keys and couldn’t find them. I fumbled and dug around my bag for what seemed like an eternity, getting rain-soaked, and cursing to myself. This wasn’t the first time it happened but that moment was when I had enough. That night I promised myself to create a product that would end my 20-year struggle with keys. With funds I put aside for my bucket list, I hired a business attorney, filed my application to start a business and began working on a product prototype. Samples were made, product testing done and in late 2009 Joyful Keyper (previously known as Fun Key Finder) was introduced to the marketplace.

Despite a boatload of mistakes and setbacks I created a product to help solve one of life’s most common problems. No more frantically searching for keys …. day or night... Every-single-day !


p.s. My dad would often say to me “If your head wasn’t attached to your body you would lose that too”. Inspiration comes to us in many different ways.
