We love business start-up stories on the home business podcast. The COVID 19 crisis is leading to new bursts of ingenuity as entrepreneurs develop new products and services to adapt to a new stay-at-home world. To curb the cost and hassle of the new rush to buy home exercise equipment, Emily Fukunaga, has created a weight listing device that makes Campbell’s soup the center of your workout. Enter her Makeweight - a DIY dumbbell device that firmly holds food cans, fashioning a custom weight that’s adaptable to your curling and pressing ability.

  • Innovative home workout product the Makeweight via 3D Printing

  • Product Launch status with the Makeweight
  • Fundraising and her use of Kickstarter
