May 25, 2012 - PRLog -- Don’t know what to get Dad or Grandpa for Father’s Day? Update James Brown's song "Papa's Got a Brand New Bag" and make life easier for the men in your family with Jean Newell’s brand new giZmo bags. Along the theme of Papa’s brand new bag, if the man in your life is going through a job transition, Jean is offering a free copy of her book How to Turn a Pink Slip into a Red Hot Business.
Friday, May 18 between 1 and 2 PM ET, Jean debuts the giZmo bag on QVC’s Organizer Options Show. The giZmo is washable and comes in 3 colors: Black, Vanilla and Cappuccino. (Jean’s book won’t be sold by QVC, but you can get it free directly from her.)
The giZmo bag is Jean Newell’s second product sold by QVC and it follows the success of her first design, the PUP (Personal Utility Pouch). Jean sold over $1.5 million of product during the PUP’s 24-month run on QVC. So the giZmo bag is the next generation of wearable and washable organizers featuring compartments for the latest high-tech devices including the iPad, Kindle, and Nook e-readers; the wide variety of smart phones; and even important medical devices such as glucose monitors. Jean’s bags are stylish for both men and women. Unlike fanny packs, PUPs and giZmobags keep you from looking like a tourist and organize your necessities with special compartments. They can be worn across the chest, over the shoulder or around the waist. Jean's bags are used on the job and on the town; they're great for long-distance travel, walking dogs, shopping, and taking kids to school and other events. Some of Jean's customers even wear her bags at home to keep necessities within reach at all times.
Jean Newell, the giZmo bag designer, said she’s excited to return to QVC with her second product. “The opportunity QVC affords to small businesses can instantly take a great idea from concept to commerce. To be able to reach millions of Americans during these live presentations is the ideal format for new inventors with a dream.”
Jean, a former realtor of 35 years, has parlayed her invention experiences into a consulting business for aspiring inventors and has authored her first book How to Turn a Pink Slip into a Red Hot Business. She’s a director with the entrepreneurial mentoring group the Founders Forum and volunteer mentor with Junior Achievement. She attributes much of her success to the help and guidance she received from the Small Business Development Center and the Women’s Business Center.
