Trouble The Dog: Helping Kids Through Difficult Times 

According to the MSNBC web site, “Trouble the Dog will warm any child's heart. He is no ordinary canine. This socially conscious toy is designed to provide comfort to children who need a little extra attention.” 

“Feedback to our appearance has been phenomenal,” said Duncan. “We are in discussions with potential distribution partners to find the right partner who appreciates our efforts to make Trouble a household name, while understanding the enormous untapped potential for products, books, accessories and an animated television series.”

Duncan presented to Gene Marks President, The Marks Group, PC and Columnist, New York Times (@genemarks) and Angela Lee, Founder of 37 Angels (@37AngelsNY). Marks owns the Marks Group PC, a highly successful firm that provides technology and consulting services to small and medium sized businesses. Marks writes weekly for The New York Times, Forbes, Inc. Magazine, and the Huffington Post.   Angela Lee is an educator, entrepreneur, and angel investor.  Founder of 37 Angels, an angel network and angel education program, Angela is passionate about education and has started several companies in that space.  

Experts Gene Marks and Angela Lee gave the company high marks for passion and growth, and offered encouraging words about strategy. Acting on their advice, Duncan is seeking a business partner with an established marketing network such as QVC, infomercials, or a celebrity endorsement, to introduce Trouble The Dog on a much larger scale and place him in the arms of more children who need comfort, hope or someone to hug.
