The "product" is used by DIY homeowners when performing paint projects. Product will be available and sold at big box home improvement centers and hardware stores. The product performs two functions: 1. Stores lid from one-gallon paint can lid while off the can 2. Catches any dripping paint running down side of paint can To use the product, open the storage compartment and insert lid from open paint can. (storage department is like a clam - a top and bottom half with a living hinge on one side and a clasp on opposite side of hinge) Place open one-gallon paint can on top of lid of storage compartment. Rotate cross arms up and over top of paint can to capture and hold paint can in place. From the patent: The present invention relates generally to a storage system and method for use thereof, and more specifically to a storage system for retaining a paint lid and paint can during use. When painting using standard cans of paint, there is presently not a good manner in which to keep the lid within proximity of the paint can without also subjecting the user and the surrounding environment to potentially accidental distribution of paint from the paint lid. What is needed is a system for storing a paint lid while also keeping it in proximity to the can so that it is not misplaced or subject to smearing paint from the lid where not desired. The present invention generally provides a storage compartment formed from two halves designed to fit a paint lid, the two halves being connected by a living hinge or other suitable connection type. The two halves can be sealed over the paint lid, ensuring the lid remains in proximity to the paint can. Molded clasps or other closure elements are used to close the lid over the storage compartment. A rotatable arm can be tilted up from the storage compartment to secure paint can to top of storage compartment.
We are building an operations management platform for adult in-home healthcare companies. Adult in-home health agencies send caregivers to help people in need. We look at the caregivers and clients that these agencies have and optimize the match between them. We do this by looking at things like needs/skills, wage, location, personality, and continuity to create the perfect match that we all want for our loved ones. We are using a software platform that 1. Plot out, caregivers and clients on a map. 2. Optimize matching to give all parties a better experience. 3. Assign caregivers to clients based to provide optimal client satisfaction, caregivers satisfaction, and overall business operational efficiency. 4. Look back on the assignment to figure out how we can do better, then use targeted recruiting to find caregivers in areas we need, with the skills we need or recommend training for caregivers to apply with more clients. The primary user of this software will be the staffing coordinators. The caregivers and clients will never know that it exists, they just gain from the personal touch. We're like a backend match.com for adult in-home health care agencies. We sometimes say that they've done it for the first intimate relationship, but we are doing it for the last. Historically, the home health industry has been very fragmented. This is because before now, it has been very hard to give hundreds of caregivers and clients the human touch/personal experience that everyone wants for their most cherished loved ones. We allow this human touch to scale. Looking for fun, outside the box name that is professional. We plan on possibly matching people in other relationships outside of home health, doctors and patients, lawyers and clients, students and teachers, ect.
My business was started as a result of the millions of people that lost their jobs during the great recession in 2008 & 2009. They were completely unprepared to find other work using their present skills or creating work by following their passion and doing work that feeds the soul and earns income. Instead of general responses to questions asked on the interview we offer recordings from experts in various professions that give specific insight on exactly what potential interviewers want to know, how you can demonstrate your skills, how to transfer skills to another career opportunity and how to use your skills, experiences, and passion to create a side business that feeds the soul.
