Hello AARP Entrepreneur Group,
Glad to be a part of the AARP community from Moscow, Idaho, and I hope this introduction inspires all of you to create. If you could, what product(s) would you create to benefit humanity?
Just turned 60 in August. I had a late night ephiphany at 59 to leave a legacy which led me to create KickShot, a soccer board game for young and old. I created KickShot to engage, entertain and educate players on the nuances of soccer and have fun at the same time. No soccer experience is necessary to enjoy the game.
After spending nearly 40 years in high technology industry and 10 years refereering youth and adult soccer and basketball, I decided to pursue something to truly benefit humanity.....call it a mid-life second career. KickShot keeps the young away from their mobile devices and video games. and helps families come together. The board game, featuring endearing animal characters, supports three levels of play, depending on age and challenge. The game experienced a great commercial success in its introductory year in 2013 and I am looking forward to a brighter 2014.
There is much excitement in creating something that helps. Looking forward to connecting with many of you to share my story.
P.S. a recent WSJ article on the benefits of board games may interest you.
