One Percent Podcast with Tereson Dupuy: Mother of Invention.

3c6f3b4Got a great idea for a new product but no idea how to get it to the marketplace? You can learn from Tereson Dupuy who is known as the Mother of Invention in this episode of the One Percent Club Podcast.

Tereson is an inventor and entrepreneur with over 15 years of experience. She invented a modern version of a cloth baby diaper in 2000 called “FuzziBunz” and pioneered an industry that had been for the most part annihilated by the onslaught of the disposable diaper mindset 40 years prior. Her product and business experienced extremely rapid growth in the first 5 years over doubling in growth every year. She built her own manufacturing and distribution facility and after 6 years grew to the point of needing to outsource to keep up with demand. She has manufactured products in the USA, Mexico, China and Turkey.   Logo-300x60

Tereson has pitched many investors over the course of her career and appeared on the ABC show “Shark Tank” in 2012 to give the pitch of her life in front of 5 intimidating “sharks” and 5.5 Million viewers. It is safe to say that she is NO stranger to the process and knows what is needed to make a successful business a reality.

Over the course of 15 years Tereson has seen many ups and downs, trials and tribulations, weathered patent infringement wars and manufacturing disasters and has seen much success and failure. It is through this experience that she is now helping other fledgling inventors and entrepreneurs bypass the learning curve that she had to navigate and expedite their success from learning from her experiences.

Tereson is now partner in a company called INFANTC Trading Company, LLC that holds the “FuzziBunz” brand that she created and is actively involved in the day to day operations of brand management and strategic planning.

Attract New Business like a Magnet: One Percent Club Podcast with Joe Calloway

How do market leaders turn their companies into magnets for new business, new clients, new customers?

magnetic-presentationThere are no short cuts to getting new customers, increasing sales, and growing your business. Don’t look for them – there aren’t any.

  • What you say on social media won’t do it.
  • Just asking for more referrals won’t do it.
  • Advertising alone certainly won’t do it.
  • These are all part of business growth, but they’re not the keys.

There is, however, one sure strategy that makes it happen: being laser focused on the three things you must get right every time with every customer.  Joe Calloway, shares tips from his latest book, “Magnetic – The Art of Attracting Business”  in this episode of the One Percent Club Podcast.


  • Know exactly what you want your customers to say about your business.
  • Use a fundamental business attraction strategy throughout the entire organization.
  • Get everyone focused on what matters most to customers.
  • “Filter” your choices and activities so that you always achieve maximum positive impact.
  • Identify the Core Differentiators that if you “get right” every single day will drive positive word of mouth – and make your company a magnet for new business.
