Who are these people?

Seriously.

Respectfully asked.

Many of us have asked that question when we hear certain statistics and wonder who are the people involved in those dynamics since we know very few of them in our everyday life.

Most often they are frightening in composition.

Victims of murder, suicides, death by car accident or air plane, college students that owe over $200,000 in college debt, persons with unique diseases and more.

Maybe we might know of someone who knew someone but often we wonder who are the people that make up the statistics?

So one statistical group that is being discussed especially in the western world is the fact that more and more young adults have moved back into their parent’s home after college.

It’s startling.

How startling?

Posted on May 24, 2016, according to www.npr.org, “For the first time in more than 130 years, Americans ages 18-34 are more likely to live with their parents than in any other living situation, according to a new analysis by the Pew Research Center.

In that age group, 32.1 percent of people live in their parents’ house, while 31.6 live with a spouse or partner in their own homes and 14 percent live alone, as single parents or in a home with roommates or renters.”

Other think tanks are aware of this as well. On May 24, 2017 at pewresearch.org they add, “More young adults in the U.S. are living with their parents than at any time since around 1940, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis of census data. This trend is not, as you might assume, solely a consequence of the 2007-09 Great Recession, nor is it limited to the U.S. Across much of the developed world, researchers have noted that more young adults are living at their parents’ homes for longer periods – in some cases because they never left, in others because they moved back after being on their own in college or the working world.

Across the European Union’s 28 member nations, nearly half (48.1%) of 18- to 34-year-olds were living with their parents in 2014, according to the EU statistical agency Eurostat.”

Which brings us to Ms. Cyndi Lee.

We first saw her on Shark Tank.

What is Shark Tank?

Budding entrepreneurs get the chance to bring their dreams to fruition in this reality show from executive producer Mark Burnett. They present their ideas to the sharks in the tank — five titans of industry who made their own dreams a reality and turned their ideas into lucrative empires.

So when we saw Cyndi we thought she is bright, dynamic, elegant and gorgeous plus she has a wonderful product.

We had visions of her being married with a lovely home and a nice bank account. Then the Sharks probed her about her situation and to our surprise, what was her response?

She’s still living at home with her parents.

What??????

Interesting who makes up those statistics. One of the people that you’ve heard about but didn’t know personally.

Now you know Cyndi and you should. Why?

She has a fantastic product.

Let’s do a meet and greet…..from her parent’s home. No make that Cyndi’s website.

At https://www.safegrabs.com/ she shares, “Have you ever burned your fingers trying to grab a HOT dish out of the microwave?!!

Very intriguing. What a great idea.

She soon became popular. At heavy.com they smile, “We interviewed its inventor, Cyndi Lee, and learned that the product, which originally went by the name “Micro Easy Grab,” is available on Amazon as well as QVC and Home Depot’s websites.”

Now a star, Cyndi speaks about her post Shark Tank experience.

The Shark Tank Experience (A Brief).

Have you ever embarked on a project and failed repeatedly? It was my third time trying out for the Shark Tank and every time I didn’t make it was pure devastation. But with sheer dogged determination, I finally made!  PERSEVERANCE is a must!!

In hindsight, I’m so thankful it never happened on both auditions because I believe “everything happens for a reason”.  Had I made it on the Shark Tank the prior years, I would have made a complete fool of myself with the lack of knowledge with the time and practice needed to hone in on my pitch. Being on QVC, Steve Harvey and the local news helped me improve my pitch and I practiced repeatedly while driving, cooking, showering and even when I woke up in the middle of the night!

I was on autopilot for the pitch and no one can ever be 100% prepared for the questions but I survived without fainting, which was a miracle in itself.  I wasn’t so scared of the Sharks but more of the realization that millions of people would be watching me on Prime Time Television.  I’ve made costly mistakes along the way but as Jack Ma says, “mistakes are revenues later” as long as you learn from them!

Its full throttle now and working harder than ever to execute my dream! I want to thank God and everyone who believed and supported me through this unbelievable and challenging journey.

My feet in the sands of Redondo Beach after pitching to the Sharks. It was such a beautiful day I wanted to take a moment to absorb this surreal experience that I couldn’t share with anyone at the time except with the crab…

If you dare to dream at all, then DREAM BIG!”

Thank you Cyndi for that very inspirational experience.

Okay readers, you never have to burn your hands again and you owe it all to Cyndi.

Join the crowd. Please eat well and grab safely.
