Nip Your Yip
David Keller, a Valley resident who works at the Wigwam, like most people, dreams every day of coming up with a million dollar idea. He finally had one, or so he hopes! He scribbled his invention onto a post-it note, hired a retired engineer off of CraigsList for $100 to draw his design, found a plastics manufacturer in Tempe to create his invention, and voila... his first proto-type was born. His little invention is a golfer's aid called "Train Your Aim," designed to "nip your yips," and help golfers putt with more accuracy. One of his tips is, to not be afraid to ask for help, and to have a certain level of trust in people. He sought out the advice from a couple on LinkedIn who are in the golfing industry, for instance. They were total strangers, but they ended up helping him and encouraging him to see his idea through.
