Business Industry Leaders

By Jay Lily

’Entrepreneurial leaders do not have a mindset that adapts to failure. Things go wrong, of course, but entrepreneurs don´t call them "failures" they call them "glitches, mistakes, bungles, setbacks" – but not failing.

When one such entrepreneur was asked about the hardest decision he ever had to make, he answered that he didn´t know what a hard decision was. An entrepreneur will approach decision-making with the idea that there´s a strong likelihood that he/she will be wrong. This doesn´t dissuade them – to the contrary they just do the best they can and worry about handling obstacles as they arise.

Here's a few entrepreneurs:

CPA Systems, Inc. develops innovative products for pets and people. PupLight, our first product, was introduced in 2004 at the Global Pet Expo and was named one of the 12 best products of the year. (out of 600) It is a safety product that keeps dogs safe by making them visible. It also lights up the path when dogs are walked and helps older dogs see better. People liked PupLight so much they took it away from their dogs and used it themselves so we made a people light, NekLight.

Our new products, Brush 'N Bone and PupSling should be available for sale in the fall of 2010. Brush 'N Bone is a soft chew toy with bristles that helps clean the dogs teeth as they chew. PupSling covers up bandages on dog's legs so that dogs can't chew the bandages off. This allows wounds to heal quicker. We are currently researching the development of three other new products.
