Who: Barbara Alink – Inventor of The Alinker Mobility Device
What We Talked About: How Barbara invented the Alinker, an innovative mobility device that is changing the world. Barbara talks about how she came up with the idea, how she created the prototype, how she researched it and improved it, and finally how she marketed it through a Kickstarter campaign. This is more than a story about a product. This is a story about a revolution in how we think about mobility challenges.
Why I Like Barbara: A woman who is an inventor, in a niche traditionally dominated by men. A non-marketer who moved forward with the marketing of this new device and launched a campaign largely on word-of-mouth. A person who has stayed the course and has seen her vision reach an international audience with nothing except her enthusiasm and a passion to help people. Really, what’s not to like?
Great Line: Do what you can.
