“Packaging is so important. Because if you have a good idea, you must have the packaging to go along with it. The packaging can identify your product, it can have a lot of necessary information on there. And it can build a brand image for somebody looking for that item down the road.” – Tom Meyer


“Test to make sure that your product gets to the consumer.” – Tom Meyer


“Most importantly, where I see people fail out. Number one is that you can have a great idea. But if you don’t sell it, it will never be anything more than a good idea.” – Tom Meyer
