BusinessInterviews.com: What inspired you to launch your business?
Jeremy Rincon: Before launching Clarus, we were working in the financial services industry. When the economy crashed in 2008-2009, we were left wanting desperately to sell a product that you could feel and had clear value. We were tired of selling ideas and working for large companies where we were just a number. That’s what inspired us.
BusinessInterviews.com: Do you have any recent success stories that you’d like to share with our readers?
Jeremy Rincon: This fall, we’re moving into our sixth facility of the last seven years. This is to keep up with the demand and capacity that our customers require. We’re excited to be moving to a state of the art facility just down the road in Fort Worth.
BusinessInterviews.com: What issue does your core product help solve and how so?
Jeremy Rincon: We offer an elegant, long-lasting, and customizable solution for dry erase needs – the Glassboard.
BusinessInterviews.com: What has been your biggest challenge as a business owner and how have you met that challenge?

BusinessInterviews.com: What’s the most exciting thing on the horizon for you/your Company?
Jeremy Rincon: We’re most excited to continue to integrate technology into everything we do. Whether it’s serving our customers better than ever before or launching products that people hadn’t ever conceived of. That’s what get’s us excited these days.
BusinessInterviews.com: How do your competitors view you?
Jeremy Rincon: We’re excited to be the creators of the glassboard. In the last seven years, dozens of companies have tried to imitate. That’s fun and rewarding for us to see this concept we came up with becoming more mainstream. We even made a video as an open letter to our competition, because we like to have fun with these sorts of things.
BusinessInterviews.com: What advice do you have for other entrepreneurs and business owners? What do you wish someone told you?
Jeremy Rincon: Believing in your idea and yourself is the most important thing. Because you will hit roadblocks. You will hit dead ends. There will be times you want to quit or people are calling you crazy for sticking with it. Those are the times you need to cling to that belief.
BusinessInterviews.com: What’s the biggest risk that you’ve ever taken and how did it turn out?
Jeremy Rincon: Starting Clarus! We sold our homes, our cars, and moved in with family. We both had newborns at home and made the biggest gamble of our lives on a product that had literally zero demand when we started.
