The Waiting Game

We’ve all had to do it. It’s not fun. It sucks! It’s life.

What’s that, you ask? The waiting game… waiting for an answer, waiting for test results, waiting for a callback. No matter what you are waiting for, time ticks slowly. P-a-i-n-f-u-l-l-y slowly.

I am in the waiting zone. I am waiting to hear from Shark Tank to see if I made the cut, get to take the next step, continue the adventure in a big way.

PillowPack will move forward with or without Shark Tank, but it would be wildly exciting to proceed to Door #2!

I am finding that I am growing in mental toughness. I’ve always thought of myself as resilient, but I am now adding the word TOUGH.

While I wait, I am committed to using my time wisely. (Not waste it on anxiety and worrying. God has my back.)

  • I am analyzing the market and strategizing for exposure and growth. It’s kind of exciting in its own way.
  • I am streamlining the PillowPack construction process for efficiency and cost.
  • I am researching large scale manufacturers.
  • I am working on my other business, Color Street Nails.
  • I am catching up on household tasks.
  • I am enjoying the ride of a lifetime!

In my research, I am coming across so many travel bloggers and minimalist bloggers, giving voice to new and unique ideas and adventures. Who knew?

It is enlightening and exciting. I feel it expanding my entrepreneurial world. My dreams.

A neck pillow you pack… INGENIOUS!

KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI, February 27, 2020 – PillowPack Productions LLC is excited to announce the full production launch of PillowPack, atypical luggage that utilizes the high dollar real estate of space around your neck. This allows you to invest in experiences rather than luggage fees.

PillowPack is disguised as a neck pillow so you can bring more on your flight—FREE OF CHARGE. It’s not considered your carry-on. It’s not considered your personal item. Think of it as an invisible suitcase… that you can sleep on.

When the Shark Tank Diversity Tour came to Kansas City, February 21, 2020, PillowPack was granted an audience with a Shark Tank Casting Executive. During pre-interview warmups,

PillowPack created a buzz with all of the other entrepreneurs and a resounding roar went up when I said, “Kiss luggage fees goodbye!”

Shark Tank pitch day!Manufactured in Kansas City, PillowPack is the first product to be released PillowPack Productions LLC, owned by Amber Waldeier, a degreed Graphic Designer, innovative home manager and part-time grief counselor. For more information and to see the range of accent colors, visit
