I’m a type 1, and I started a company called GlucoLift that makes an all-natural, better tasting glucose tablet because I hated using the ones that were available when I was diagnosed. It’s not much of a company - just my wife and I, no real office - but I’m trying my best to get the tablets out there and available to other people who want a better option for treating lows.

I’m going to have a booth at the TCOYD conference/health fair in Tampa this weekend, and I’m looking for a couple of people (preferably type 1’s) to help out, just for an hour or so in the morning. In exchange, I could offer free entry into the show (Normally $30) as well as 3 jars of GlucoLift ($27 value). Details about the conference can be found here:

There’s usually a big rush after the opening speech, and I just need help answering questions about glucose tablets (very basic) and selling the product (taking money, giving change etc).

If this is something you might be interested in, please let me know. Thanks in advance!

Kind regards,
