In our Meet the Maker series, you hear from our Makers on their journeys as entrepreneurs and how you, The Grommet Community, have changed their businesses for the better.
Makers Sigmar Berg and Tom Rohner created Lovetuner. It holds a single-note flute that plays 528 Hz–a tone believed to have positive effects on our minds and bodies. With Sigmar’s talent as a designer and Tom’s skills as a spiritual lightworker, they created this Made in the USA necklace to hold some calming influence close at hand. We recently caught up with them to hear a bit more about their entrepreneurial journeys.
What’s the best business advice that you ever received?
Be stubborn in following through with your ideas.
What inspires you? Why do you love to design, create, and make?
I love the idea to make this world a healthier, happier, and more peaceful place.
What’s one piece of advice you’d share with other Makers?
Always follow your vision and your heart, no matter what other people say.
What other things do you love to make?
Besides creating the product Lovetuner we are taking it further into a movement of likeminded people, either if it is small tuning groups or big events, to remind people of the power of love.
What advice would you give yourself 10 years ago?
I don’t believe in living in the past or the future, I am living in the here and now.
How do you get around creative blocks?
Creativity is like everything else in life–sometimes its flows, sometimes it doesn’t. For me, one great tool to overcome creative blocks is the Lovetuner. It centers me again and releases blockages in my thought process. When I feel stuck, I tune. It’s a simple but very effective exercise (especially when creativity does not flow if you put yourself under pressure).
How has business changed since launching on The Grommet? How has our community made a difference?
Besides the commercial success that is the foundation of every business and confirmation for every entrepreneur, it was the amazing feedback from The Grommet community. The positive reviews and stories shared about the Lovetuner made us very happy. The Grommet is a great platform to connect to the end consumer.
What’s up ahead for you?
We are working on a Lovetuner foundation to help underprivileged kids and veterans to heal through the Lovetuner.
