"They invited me to Apple when they heard what I did next; grab pinking shears and a plastic file folder, make a few cuts, slip in my iPad, and begin a brand new business the next day, making gorgeous soft leather handles which keep iPads safe and secure – THE ORIGINAL LEATHER HANDLE FOR iPAD."

"I had to start this business," she said, "I just couldn’t help it … . Anyone who has to hold an iPad in the course of a day, loves this handle … whether reading aloud, checking patient notes, showing new ideas to students, reading on the bus, train or plane … the list goes on and on."

"Each person is really in charge of his own life. We can be anything we want to be. And now, nearing 70, I want to be an entrepreneur!" Granny Vincent says, and adds, "Why don’t you Google ‘Kickstarter leather handle’," with an entrepreneur’s glint in her eye.
