Why we love tourists at Comfort Research standard

At Comfort Research, innovators of the amazing Big Joe line of products including the one that I am sitting in here and check this out, it only weighs 15 lbs. and can go indoors or outdoors (ok, there is my shameless product plug), we often find ourselves giving tours.

I Believe In Unicorns standard

I believe in unicorns. They exist. Perhaps not in the form of lovely golden-horned, horse-bodied winged beasts with flowing rainbow manes – but instead in the form of the amazing innovations of humanity. I have seen it at other companies and I have seen it happen time and again at Comfort Research. Comfort Research is the mother of unicorns. I often give tours at Comfort Research and joke with the touree that on this part of the tour that they in fact are looking at a unicorn. I believe that unicorns are more than just innovations. Unicorns are what was once thought to be impossible. They are the combination of attributes that you didn’t believe could be delivered together. It is the attributes you thought you ...
