Episode 205: Unlocking the Secrets of Invention - Candy Fitzpatrick's Insights for Aspiring EntrepreneursOct 17, 2023
Candy FitzPatrick is the Inventor and Owner of RestAngles, a cleverly designed extremely portable footrest that brings the floor to your feet! Based in Cooper Landing, Alaska she careered a patchwork of mostly seasonal or contract jobs together, primarily on the ground side of the aviation industry, to amass a fun and varied dual continental 30+ year career.
On her high school list of things to do in life she wrote "Invent Something" and so she did! Her mission is to help people like herself, who experience pain while sitting due to dangling legs, feel more comfortable anywhere they wish to sit!
Currently, RestAngles is available at www.RestAngles.com, Lieber's Luggage in Albuquerque, NM while supplies last and in the She Invented Alaskiosk at select markets in Alaska (a booth she co-operates with the Inventor of The Planeket).
“I saw a need for a product that could alleviate the discomfort of long flights, so I invented RestAngles. It's been a journey, but now my invention is helping others travel comfortably.”

Welcome back to your next stop. This is Juliet Hahn. You know, I say this every single time. And this is another guest that has followed a passion. And wait until you hear the pivots and the churns and the amazingness.
That Candy Fitzpatrick who is an inventor. You guys know how I love inventors. She is an inventor of rest angles. So welcome Candy, to your next stop. Hi Juliet, thank you for having me.
Yes, I'm excited to dive into this, but I first want to let everyone know where they can find you. They can find you on basically every bit of the social medias. Of the social medias. It's the social media networks. So Facebook it is restangles and it's R-E-S-T-A-N-G-L-E-S instagram.
It's rest. Angles. But then LLC LinkedIn. It's either Candy Fitzpatrick or Restangles. And pinterest.
It is also rest Angles. So, Candy, I know we connected on LinkedIn. Actually we did through another guest that I've had on another adventure. Yeah. And so I became fascinated with your story because your story is again, it's one of those stories that someone maybe has aspirations, but they don't have the guts to do it.
So I want to kind of dive in a little bit about you, a little bit of your background. I know you grew up in New Jersey and then you moved to the Midwest and you stayed in the Midwest for college. That is correct. Right? Yeah, until I was ten I lived in Jersey and then we moved to Minnesota and then I went to college in North Dakota.
Yes, exactly right. And now you're in Alaska. And what I love about that is you just told me it snowed. So everyone, I just love when seasons change. But you're getting snow in Alaska already.
I still have a tank top on, but it's getting cooler here in New York. But one of the things that I would love for you to kind of dive into and this is maybe going to take a little different turn than I normally do, but I do know your story. And so there's things that I want you to touch on. And one of them is basically that you had a list in high school and one of those goals was for you to be an inventor or to invent something. Can you take us down that a little bit?
And where that kind of curiosity came. In, I guess it started probably in elementary school. We had to do a project invent something and then they talked a little bit about it. And I did a craft paper drawing of a horse saddler that hands came down from the ceiling. And ever since then I was like, well inventing what is that?
And I've always been curious about it. And then one teacher in 11th or twelveTH grade had us write a list of big dreams to do before you die. And one of my lists was invent something, even subconsciously, after not looking at the list for years, I've done a lot of those things, and I checked them off, and then I'm, like, invent something, yes, I need to do that. And so I have, and I love that. And I would love for you to tell the listeners a little bit about when you went to college, what you studied, and then where that took you in.
Kind of your journey in the world of working outside the home and doing all these different things. If you can kind of give us a little background on that, what you studied in college and how that came about. Right? Well, I went to University of North Dakota in Grand Forks, which is a huge aviation college, and I went there for aviation. And my degree is Bachelor's of Business Administration in Airport administration.
So I really clung onto the aviation side of that and did that for 30 plus years, and now I'm using the business side. But that was over 30 years ago. It's like starting over, really. But yeah, so the aviation side took me all over Tennessee, Indiana, and then to Alaska. And then I worked in Antarctica in the aviation side as well, which is why I came up with the invention, because I was traveling to and so.
And we're going to get to the invention in 1 second. But the thing that I loved, and I remember from your story, is that you had places that you wanted to visit, so you kind of went to, like when you were studying aviation, you said that you always had a bit of a fascination around it. And then when you realized what you could do kind of in the world, you didn't love to fly. Right. You kind of decided that early on.
Yeah, you can take us through that a little bit. Yeah. So I went to college to become a professional pilot, but I had to pay for college on my own, which was a struggle to graduate. With a degree at Und in Aviation, you had to get at least your private license. So I did that, and as I was doing that, I realized that I didn't love it.
And I think you should really love it before you spend that much money to further your flying career. But I really liked the aviation side of it, and luckily, I was offered a position as a dispatcher at the flight school there, and I just stayed on that path for 30 years. I mean, thank goodness that that was available. And I worked there every semester. It was a work study program.
I worked there every semester that I was there and was just involved. And I was like, I really love this. And so I took that path and just kept doing different jobs. What did you love about that? Because I think it's fascinating, and I know I have a lot of moms and dads that listen to this.
But one of the things that some of us that have kids that are going into their senior year or going into college and they're like, I don't know what I want to do. And really the education system kind of teaches you about like, here are the jobs. But there's so many different careers out there that we don't think about, especially if we live in certain parts of the world or the United States. You don't hear about like, okay, aviation, or of course you hear about it, but you don't realize that there's a whole path that you can, um what was know, fascination. Do you think early on that you decided, you know what, I want to explore this and see where this can go?
I guess it started with my dad, who was a private pilot in Jersey, and so I didn't live near him, but maybe that influenced me a little bit. And I went on a college visit with a friend. Her sister was going to the University of North Dakota and I saw that they had this big college there for aviation. And I was like, that's what I want to do. So I was in twelveTH grade and knowing I wanted to go to college, but not exactly sure what I wanted to do.
And then when I went to the school and saw it, that's what I wanted to do. But the big jobs are pilot or flight attendant or mechanic, the ones that everyone sees. But then there's all these other little jobs in aviation, like the ramp rats and the ground handlers and the dispatchers and the weather person and all these other jobs you don't really think about that are all related to aviation. And there's so many opportunities and maybe the guidance counselors or the parents don't know that these jobs exist, but you just got to put your foot forward and see what else is there, right? Yeah.
And it's a good career because one of the things that I love that you said is that you loved to travel. So as you were kind of diving into this career, you realized that you could maybe be like, wait, I would like to live there. Let me see what jobs I can get. So can you take us kind of through your path of all the places that you were and then how you ended up in Alaska? Yeah, that's an interesting question.
To put it in chronological order. When I was in college, I took a course about how to be a better student, which I really needed. And there was a blurb in there about Fred Smith and FedEx. And then I really wanted to work for FedEx, and so I did an internship with FedEx in my junior year. I took a year off and went down there with my best friend.
We both got internships and so that was in Tennessee. We did that for a year, went back to college, finished up, and then they hired me back in FedEx in Tennessee, and then they opened up the Hub in Indiana. So I moved to Indianapolis, which is where my best friend ended up, too. So that was awesome. And then from there, I was traveling all over the US.
All the way. I was keeping track of all the states I'd been to. And I was working on doing all 50 DC and Puerto Rico. And so I did all of that, and I wanted to do that so I could pick the place that I wanted to live. So I did all 50 states, DC.
And Puerto Rico, and then picked the place I wanted to go and live, which was Alaska. So I transferred to a job that paid less and not an aviation. I was a customer service agent and a courier for a little while there, just to move to Alaska, which it's been wonderful. It's been over 30 years now with a good decision. And then I was able to get a job as a dispatcher for the Forest Service in Tongas, which is the largest forest in the nation, tongas National Forest in Southeast Alaska.
And then I transferred up to the Chugach Forest, which is where we're at now. And it was a seasonal position. So that's where the Antarctica part comes in. In my off season, I went to work in Antarctica, and I love that. And what do you think?
Because there's people that love to travel and maybe they love the idea of traveling and then they do it, and then that's like the bug that got them. Or they saw a movie where someone traveled or they grew up kind of going on different travel events. So where do you think that you got that travel bug? Definitely from my mom, who's very nomadic, and she's originally from Finland, her and her family, and they immigrated when she was young. But she loved traveling and she always tried to have us go on trips, driving trips.
Man, she loves to.
So even though we didn't have a lot of money, we still fit in camping trips at the Koas across the country to go visit relatives in Wyoming or wherever they happen to be. So I think maybe it comes from that and just driving. And then once I moved out of the house, I drove a lot across the country, all the ways, many times, and I think maybe it comes from that. And then I really wanted to do international travel, but I wanted to do the 50 states and all that we had here first. And then when I was 25 or 26, that's when I took my first trip overseas.
And then it just went from there. Right. I love that. So now I want you to get into rest angles because I want the listeners to know, because here's the thing. A lot of times.
And I know I've been not everyone's like this, but I know that there's been times in my life, particularly when I was first having children, that I kept coming up with these ideas. I was like, oh, you know what would make this easier? If I had something like this. Is there anything out there? And there was never anything out there.
And I would start because I'm fascinating with inventions, and I always was fascinating. It's not that something that I ever wanted to pursue, I don't think, but I always loved coming up with the ideas and then thinking about it, and then I think the next steps is kind of where I was like, I don't really want to go do those next steps. I love just coming up with the ideas. So if you can take kind of the listeners through, because, again, that's where a lot of inventions come from. They come from our real lives, like things that we're doing, and we find a need for ourselves, and then it's like, well, wait a second.
If I have this need, maybe other people do. So if you can take us through kind of the invention and the creation of Rest Angles, that would be great, right? Well, it's interesting that you say that, because mompreneurs are like, you guys come up with great ideas. It's awesome. I'm not a mom.
So the products that you guys come up with, I'm like, well, I never would have thought of that. I'm not a mom. And I was like, that's awesome. Go with it. Go do it.
Yeah, I love it. Rest Angles came about because when I was flying from Alaska to my job in Antarctica, which I did for ten years, I'd get off the flight in Auckland, New Zealand, pretty much not able to walk because my legs were dangling off the edge of my seat. I'm a shorter person, so I couldn't get comfortable and just pain in my back and my hips. And I'm not the only one by far that has this problem. And so I started using different products to help me with that.
And so I used a cardboard box for a while, and then I had a prototype made that was made from plastic, fabricated from plastic, and it had leather hinges and rivets, and it looked like a Harley type of thing. And the guy that helped me do it was a Harley rider. So I'm like, I see a lot of you in this. It came from my brain, but the design is you anyway. So I used that for seven years, and it was super heavy.
It was like two and a half pounds. But I needed it, so I used it. And a lot of people said I could use something like that traveling. And there are other products out there, and I think there's room for all of us in the space. They all have different purposes.
And so I tried those and I had this one, and everyone's like, oh, I need something like that. And then in 2017, I was finishing up my aviation career, like retiring from that. And it's really nice to not worry about weather every day. Really nice. So that I could work on rest angles.
So I started taking short contract jobs, working on ice roads and stuff like that, which I really love, doing admin jobs, which are really hard, by the way.
And so that I had time to work on rest angles. And so then I had some people help me redesign it. And now it only weighs twelve and five 8oz and it folds flat. It looks like this. Yeah, I want to say because I know also you have a carrier case for it as well.
So you make it where it doesn't have to just slip into your luggage. You make it really smart, all the different things that you can create with it. Do you want to open it up so we can see? Yeah, so you can use it in two different wedge and that helps you stretch your legs.
And this is the four inch. And you can also flip it like this for seven inches if you want your knees to be above your hips. Right. And so if you can take us through, that the proper posture. Because I know there's times where I'm sitting and I'm an average size woman, five six and a half.
And I used to be five seven and a little shrunk a little bit. So anyone that's listening, they're like, Wait, no you're not. Yes, I am. Now I'm five six and a half. But there are certain seats that I do have sat on that.
Then my legs go look a little bit numb and all these different things. So I'm thinking like, not just for airplanes. Yes, that's where it came because of your career. That's where the idea came from. But I'm sure that there's many different places that people can use it at all times, and not just shorter individuals.
Right. Can you take us through that a little bit? Right, so Paplidial height is the distance from the bottom of your foot to the area behind your knee when you're sitting. The average in the US is 15 to 19.9 inches, but the average chair seat height is 17 to 19 inches. So there's two to four inches of dangling room.
And maybe your legs aren't exactly dangling, but you can feel the pressure on the back of your knees, which affects your lower back and your hips and your legs, your feet, everything when you're sitting. So if you raise your feet up, then your knees also go up, which is at a better angle for your hips. So with rest angles, if you put your feet on the edges here, your knees will automatically go a little to the sides. So like a V shape, which is better for your hips when you're sitting, and then your back follows suit. So like I was saying, if you wanted your knees above your hips, you can use it like this.
So that's seven inches, so that your knees are a little bit above but still at an angle. And that feels good for people. Think of your Lazy Boy chair when you're kicking back, right? And again, it's something that we don't always think about, but think about people in offices all the time sitting. That's why they created the standing desk and all these different things.
So again, something that you needed through flying in your career kind of blew up to something that it's like, okay, it's not just for this and it's not just for that. Really. When people are sitting, they're sitting all day, especially now after COVID or, people are sitting at home. So maybe they don't have the best office chair because they're not in the office anymore. And they're using chairs that they're pulling from the dining room kitchen table, and it's not that comfortable chair.
This is a solution for that. So can you tell everyone, even though we brought up in the beginning restangles.com, but what they can see when they go to your website or other places, I know that you have some local stores as well, but mainly people can buy Restangles online at your website, correct? Yeah, that's mainly it right now. And I do local markets in Alaska right now, and there's one store in Albuquerque, New Mexico that we have an account with, so we're working on more wholesale so we can be in more retailers. And I want to get into maybe live shopping market, live, maybe, I don't know, working on, so but right now the main channel is Restangles.com.
And I just wanted to say you were saying about being tall, and if you are tall and you have a shorter paplidial height, then you still may benefit from rest angles. And I'm glad that you brought that up and I forgot to touch on that a little bit. And it is for use for everywhere, like restaurants, movie theaters and offices, like you said, your home office. And even if you're at your desk at work and you have to go into the conference room and somebody's sitting in that one chair, that it's comfortable for you, you can now bring rest angles and hopefully that'll help you out, too. So I'm glad that you brought that up.
So true. Yeah. And you can just slip it in your bag, slip it in your briefcase. It's not like it's too bulky, it's light. It's not going to cause you then to have shoulder issues because you're carrying it.
I mean, you really thought about all of the different aspects to make it really convenient for everyone. If you can take us through a little bit of okay, so you had the idea and then you said you used boxes, you created something more on your own terms. Did you have that person that you would kind of run ideas by or was this all like in your head and you would just jot it down? Or do you work with like, you have that one friend or a husband you're like, hey, I have this idea, I want to brainstorm. Do you have that person in your life and how do you work there a little bit?
Well, my husband is extremely creative and can build anything, but I decided to go with just giving him a little credit there. But I worked with the Anchorage maker space, which is 2 hours from my house, and they had someone there that was working, could do design stuff. All the maker spaces are different depending on who's there. And so I had two guys who were both super tall help me in the beginning, and I also contracted with them to help me start the business and learn about that because I didn't know how to start a business, even though I have a business degree.
So I've always been really creative and doing art all the time. Something my mom, she's really good at art too. She always had us doing art, and I do art all the time. And so in my head, I had an idea. And then they helped me with the design and they said, maybe this, maybe this, maybe this.
And I'm like, Let me think on it. And this is how I work. I do other things for two weeks and in the background, my head is thinking about it. You probably do that too. Your head is thinking about it and then all of a sudden you're just like, AHA.
And so then I came up with the design and they helped me put it into a CAD and all of that stuff. And then from there, we had prototypes and all kinds of cardboard, wood with duct tape, all kinds of different types of prototypes there. And then I went to a place in Fairbanks and they helped me out an engineering place there. And they did CNC routing of my first prototypes with the actual it's really it's heavy and it's like deductive taking away plastic. Well, this is injection molded, which is adding plastic.
So I always need the math part done by someone else because this person does not do math. But this is important because that's what I want people to hear, because someone might say, oh, I'm not creative, or, oh, I'm not good at math, or oh, I'm not good at this. But if you have the idea and there's things that you're really passionate about about this idea and it keeps coming up to you because that's why I want to say to people, sometimes you get an idea and then it goes away and you really never think or see it again, right? But then there's times where it just keeps kind of coming up, like oh, you know what, I need to look at this, explore it, go out and find the people that can help you on the things that you don't know. Because again, as you said, you had to have a business degree, but starting a business is very different.
It's even applying for an LLC. I remember when I had to do that, it was different than kind of anticipated it would be. And so asking for help or looking out in your kind of surroundings about people that can help is really important to kind of just bounce those ideas around because again, there's going to be people that have we all have strengths and weaknesses. Everyone knows they hear me say this all the time. We all have strengths and weaknesses.
But to know your strengths and weaknesses is really important and to know where you can fill in for your weaknesses is what's just going to make you more successful. So I love that you kind of did that path and you had that support system that helped you, but then you just kept moving forward and I know that you have. I mean, how long has Rest Tangles been around? I want to first start with that. Well, the first unit that weighed two and a half pounds, I had that made in 2010 and got a design patent off that in 2013.
And then the actual one that we have now we've been working on since 2018. And then I finally got our first production run of these very units last year in April and then this year in June is when we got the packaging, the tote bag made from recycled plastic bottles and stuff. So now we have a complete unit. So it takes much longer than you think it's going to and it costs a lot more than you think it will. Just be prepared.
Right, but that's important for people to hear because again, it's like when you're doing things, you want it done now. And a lot of us, especially nowadays, we just want things to turn around. It takes a lot of time and sometimes that is really important because there's things that are just going to make it better and you're going to have your ducks in a row. There's times in life that we don't need our ducks in a row. We need to fly kind of out of that line.
But then there are certain things that you kind of really do need your ducks in a row to make something successful. So can you tell us through? I know you've won some things with Rest angles. Can you take us through a little bit about what's happening right now? I just on last week won a pitch competition in Seward, Alaska for Alaska Startup Week, which is done every October here and it was really fun.
It's hard for me to get up and talk in front of people. I have done it before, but it's been a couple like a year and a half. And so it was actually really fun. I'm like, oh, finally, I'm starting to enjoy this. But it's a long process.
I appear to be an extrovert to the people that know me, but I'm really an introvert, so I have to try to do these things. It takes me a lot of practice, and this time I didn't practice so much. I made new slides and then I kind of just had my outline and I was like, oh, maybe that's how I should be doing this, instead of always trying to hit my points because they don't know what you're going to say or what you were going to say, and you missed. So I did a lot better, I think, in that. So I was like, I'm still figuring out the speaking in front of people, right?
This is what I know, my listeners have heard this before, but sometimes it's really important, right? There's times where you're like, oh my God, do I need to add that? Do I need to add that? But you're so uncomfortable adding it because you keep forgetting about it and you're like, it's just not as comfortable to add. I don't know.
And I can't even give you a real specific. But then there's times that you can talk about things that you get excited and people can hear the tone in your voice. They can see your posture, they can see that you're genuine and vulnerable and authentic and all these different things. And that's what's really important when you're presenting. Sometimes the things that you stumble on, yes, you can practice them to get better, but if it's something that it's not a natural thing.
Sometimes if it doesn't need to be in there, I would take it out and just kind of speak from your heart and go up there and have a little bit of organization. But when an audience can feel the kind of genuineness of someone speaking is when you start kind of hitting those points in getting those wins in there. Because again, stories connect us. And when you're on the stage and you're talking to people, if you're rigid and nervous and kind of like just stuck in the thing, it's going to come across and you're not going to connect as well with that audience. But it is a craft, and people sometimes don't think about it, especially if it's not something that you're naturally god didn't naturally give you.
That okay, you're up there, the extrovert, talking and talking. You can be an introvert, as you said, and kind of just know what you're doing and your passion is going to come across. So when you're passionate about something, those are the things to really tap on and tap into, because again, that's going to connect with the audience at a different level. And so that's amazing that you felt that and it worked and you got to that next step. With those guys.
I mean, that has to be such a great feeling. I mean, tell us after you heard that it was you that won kind of what were the emotions? Going through a funny story. There someone after my pitch, someone bought arrest angles and I had them in my truck. So I had to leave the coffee art house that I was in.
I was like, I'm going to be back in 1 minute. And I ran out there to get her unit that she bought and I ran back in there and they're like, you won. Like they had already announced it and I wasn't in the room. I'm like, oh, me. Of course.
I mean, seriously, it was gone for like a minute. Anyway, always make the sale, right? Wait, that is so fun. Yeah. So they handed me the card and people were already breaking up and walking out because we were there like 25 minutes later than planned.
And I'm like, and so I got to talk to all the judges and get their input, which they also saw my business plan, which was something I really struggled with for quite a few years. Again, I have a business degree, but that's not something you learn really for that entrepreneurial stuff is different than business degree stuff, I realize now.
It was interesting to hear what they had to say, and they gave me contacts. And so the networking part of it was great. And it was a small venue and really comfortable because it's Seward, Alaska, and it's a small town, and it's just got this artsy feeling in there, and it's just felt really comfortable in this space. And I just want to say that you are great at talking to people and I admire that about you. Oh, thanks.
I mean, it is one of the gifts that God gave me. We all have our strengths and weaknesses and thank goodness I have this as a strength. I mean, it is something that it's one of those natural things, but I still have to work at it. But I've also gotten better because I've done so many podcasts. I mean, your next stop has over 300 episodes.
YNS Live has I can't even think of how many. And then Word Blindness, which is the new podcast. We're on episode nine. So I do this and I've been doing it now since 2019, and I definitely have gotten better, as you see, which is fine. Anything you do, you kind of get better.
So, I mean, Candy, I love this because I love being able to share with the listeners stories from all different levels. And I think the ones that are sometimes my favorite are the ones that you just had this dream and you're like, you know what, I'm going to do this. And you went out and went for it. And I think so many people don't go out and go for it because of fear of failure. And they don't know what it's going to happen or they don't know what to do and they're nervous to ask someone, where do you think you got kind of the grit to be like, I'm just going to keep pursuing and moving this forward.
They always say a lot of how you are as an adult is a result of what happened when you were a kid, right? So I was extremely shy in junior high and for some reason the whole school decided to hate me on the same day and sent me notes about we hate you, you're a tag along, blah, blah, blah, all these things basically bullying. And one day in the lunchroom I was not doing well. It was like the lowest point in my life, probably 7th and 8th grade. And this girl, her name's Kelly, Kelly Brown cusick now she saw what was happening and she walked up to me and she invited me to sit at her table for lunch.
And I sat there and I was shy, I probably didn't say a word, but every day after that she checked in on me. She became my friend, basically, but she really lifted me up from she didn't know all the troubles I was having, but she checked on me every day and so from her I learned confidence and just how to navigate the whole strangeness that is junior high, especially when you're a right? So and then she helped me along just being herself. Everybody should have a Kelly in their lives. So I've had a few Kelly's in my life, but it started with her and from her I gained confidence and learned how to do you're introvert but be extroverted so you can have friends or this is just be yourself and you'll have friends and stuff.
It was just interesting when I look back on it. So by high school I was in cheerleading and I got to be snow days queen, which was like a huge honor. I was is like it's like homecoming, which we had homecoming during football season and then snow days during basketball. So I was able to learn a lot in those years, which basically started with Kelly and just gaining my confidence from that and always wanting to make everybody like me, which has fallen off a little bit in my because it's exhausting to have everybody like you or try to make everyone like you. You're not for everyone is what I keep telling myself.
And so with social media, I feel a lot of the same things that happened in junior high. Like if I put something out there and no one likes it, I'm back in junior high. If someone put the angry face, I'm back in junior high. If someone unsubscribes from my email list, definitely back in junior high, especially if it's someone I know, all those feelings come back and I'm like, I need to embrace my inner Kelly.
And so even today things that happened back then still creep in. And I can't even imagine being an adolescent in today's world with all the social media stuff that happens, but more power to you. I'm raising three of them. Yeah. And I appreciate you sharing that because I think it's important and it is important for people to hear, like, if you see something, say something and help.
Right. Because people can be mean a lot of times. People sometimes are not even aware what's going on because they're so into themselves. So the fact that Kelly was confident at that time and was like, wait a second, I want to help, is really beautiful. And yes, don't worry about social media.
There's so many algorithms and what you're doing and sharing your story and creating things and making things. There's people out there that are looking like, oh, why can't I do what Candy can do? Living a life of knowing what your path is and where you are and where you have been and all the different things is really the most important thing. And the inspiration that you're giving people by just talking about, hey, these are the things that I've done to kind of get to that next step. And now you're an entrepreneur and an inventor and selling a product and winning awards.
I mean, how amazing is that? So we all have our story, but we can also rewrite our story. And again, finding the inner love is really important. And I know it sounds sometimes so hokey, but you have to think sometimes people will be like, oh, that person doesn't like me because they didn't say hi. And I always will say, you don't know what's happening to that person.
Did you say hi? If someone doesn't say hi to me, I will make sure I say hi. I don't think about like, oh, that person didn't say hi. They must not like me because I'm like, they could be going through something, right? I'm a nice person.
Why wouldn't someone do it? So kind of changing that narrative in your head is really important. But I appreciate you coming on and sharing your story, your Next Stop and you guys all go to restangles.com, go to all the social media and look what this is, because this is like a fun gift you can give someone. It's something different. It's something maybe not everyone has seen, and it's something that's going to help your back and your so, like, why not?
So thank you again, Candy, for joining your Next stop up. Well, thank you, Juliet. It's been really fun and you guys. Know what to do, like rate review and share and you might have listened to the story and been like, oh, that's so interesting. But you don't know who needs to hear it.
