Founder and inventor of No Flap Ear Wrap, Julie Haught, has changed the way dogs recover from ear injuries. Haught’s dog Archer, one day had an ear injury so the vet gave him a vet wrap but he could never sleep properly in it and he always found a way to take it off. That is why she designed and sewn a dog ear wrap from some fleece and velcro. Her vet was so impressed by it that she immediately applied for a patent. Now, No Flap Ear Wrap is a family-owned business that has sold over 65,000 ear wraps to help thousands of dogs from all over the world. Here are Haught’s future goals.
When was the first time you tasted success?
It all begins at the end of 2013 when we accidentally rescued a boxer named “Archer”. The first person who noticed my accidental product was Archers Veterinarian Dr. Davis. After surgery on his pinna (ear flap) that required 11-12 stitches, we were constantly having to have his ear re-bandaged as he could easily escape the bandages and E-collar. After going to have him re-wrapped either every day or every other day, I asked her, what was the most important thing we could do for his ear. She said, “We just need to keep his ear from flapping. (hence the name No Flap Ear Wrap) We must keep it wrapped to stop the flapping motion from forcing blood into the ear flap which in turn forces it to find an exit.” I went home knowing he would eventually escape the bandaging again.
I started thinking about how the bandaging worked and how the sticky tape was not beneficial to Archer’s fur. I had some fleece fabric, Velcro and a flexible cutting board. I knew I needed something that would attach around his face, that was not just a tube shape. It would need to attach around the face, around his neck and it would need support to keep it from slipping back. I designed and sewed a wrap. It still had some bugs to work out so, after four tries, I landed it. Try as he might Archer could not get it off. He tried and tried but finally gave up.
We didn’t see Dr. Davis for at least a week. We walked into the office for our re-check and of course, everybody stared. The Vet Techs, in the office that day, asked us where we got the wrap. After seeing Archer, Dr. Davis was pleased with how well and quickly he was healing. She asked me if I could wait in the waiting area until she was done with one more patient. I said yes and was more than puzzled. She came into the waiting area and sat down. She was amazed at what I had created. Her advice to me was to get a patent attorney immediately as there was nothing like it on the market or in the Veterinary world. I sat there dumbfounded. Archer and I laughed all the way home. As did my husband when we told him.
Why do you want to be successful and what’s your ultimate vision of success for yourself?
We hope that we can affect the industry at the protocol level. We would like to be the first-line protocol treatment for ear injuries (as opposed to an alternative solution). We have already achieved that with several animal hospitals, but we would like to achieve that with the bigger chains (VCA, and Banfield Animal Hospitals).
Any last words of advice for readers?
If there are other accidental inventors out there, don’t leave your work sitting in a closet. Share it with others and see where the road leads. Spend the money on a patent attorney. It is worth it. Lastly, always remember that you can’t succeed if you don’t even try.
Jimmy Boss : A Breath in the Music industry
Jimmy Boss, is a young entrepreneur of 25 years old. He rubbed shoulders internally with the music industry from a very young age, in particular thanks to Mister V, famous French YouTuber who decided to get into music, more particularly in rap, and this with the help in particular of Mr. Boss. After finishing his internship at Hey Pelo Records, Mister V’s label, he decides to set up his own artist management company : SDW Management.
“I assure you, it’s not an order” Jimmy Boss tells you in his Paris office, while you contemplate with dismay a picture of a bearded “Mona Lisa”, the work of a Dutch fan of SDW Records, urban music label that he founded in 2017.
Jimmy Boss goes further than the others and had the crazy idea of bringing together the essentials of what a record company could provide to independent artists of 2020 to create a business that will help artists to finance, create, as well as promote themselves, while remaining independent ; he explains it to us in more details during an interview that he very kindly granted us :
«Artists these days no longer necessarily need the creative side that a major can offer. Actually, he no longer needs anything that a major can offer to him apart from the contacts and the financial aspect. This is exactly where SDW Management supports its paramount value. The company keeps offering total flexibility on the contracts in function of needs of the artist. Depending on the contract, SDW can also guarantee immediate funding to the artist, weekly monitoring and incomparable transparency of sales made. The goal is also to take care of all administrative tasks so that the artist does not only take care of the creative side. »
On the other hand, Jimmy Boss must validate the projects before releasing it :
«Basically my desire to do this job concerned people, being close to the artist, assisting them and finding something new that the record companies do not offer. But it was my creative side that pushed me to do this job, indeed, from a very young age, I have a very commercial ear and I never stop finding new artistic trends, that’s what has been the strength of the business so far, it is the icing on the cake.»
After two years spent managing artists, Jimmy Boss undertook to create his own label in 2017. His desire is simple, to release the music he loves, there, now, immediately. It was the meeting in 2015 with Mister V that created the real trigger. The latter inaugurates the long list of artists. SDW Records was born with the “Do It Yourself” spirit and the mix of genres as its only weapons.

Why people call Linda Andrade the Fat Freezing Queen
What’s your backstory?
I started my first business when I was 16 years old, it was called “luxe by Linda” and it was mainly focused towards women’s fashion and makeup, I did really well, especially because I was still in high school and girls in my high school started buying from me. I got married at 19 to another badass entrepreneur, my husband Ricky, and since then I’ve started my fat Freezing business which blew up, with plans to franchise soon.
Can you tell me the story of your prior successes, challenges, and major responsibilities?’
Before I got married and started my own successful business, I was a student at orange coast college. My parents would not let me drop out or I would be kicked out, basically. I was the typical entrepreneur drop out cliche, really wanting to drop out. That was a responsibility I had that really hindered the way to my success. I was taking unnecessary classes just to be busy and keep my parents happy. Eventually, I got married and moved to Vegas, so my parents kind of let go of the whole college thing after that.
What made you decide to choose this career path?
I got fat Freezing done myself, I loved it so much. I got rid of my love handles and tightened my stomach up really nice. I started looking up more about it and decided to take a training to teach me more about it. 1 and a half years later I have 2 locations and have helped thousands achieve the results they want.
Can you share a story about the funniest mistake you made when you were first starting?
Can you tell us what lesson you learned from that? Oh my god, in fat freezing there are levels of suction, and I usually go up in levels when they’re numb and can’t feel anything, because otherwise it hurts. One time, I forgot to take the level back down after the 1st area she did, so on her 2nd area, she immediately went to the highest level, and she was freaking out and making the funniest noises, and I couldn’t understand why, I was like “what’s wrong? It has a great grab of fat.” And then I realized she was at the highest level. It was like a solid 45 seconds of confusion and laughter. Then I felt really bad. But it was definitely the funniest mistake I ever made
What do you think makes your company/personal brand stand out?
Because the product I offer isn’t just catering to 1 person, it caters to everybody. Literally everybody I know needs my service, and they know it too.
What’s a quote that you live by?
How you do something is how you do everything.
