George Weiss DabbleThey say it’s never too late to be what you might have been. George Weiss is a perfect living example. The 84 year-old tinkerer has invented many useful items that have won rave reviews from friends and family, but were rejected by every company and investor. 80 inventions, 80 rejections.

“Everywhere I’d go I’d get rejected,” said George Weiss. “I just couldn’t get a foot in the door.”

But all that changed when a small company agreed to invest in a word game Weiss came up with called “Dabble,” which is now sold in 50 stores nationwide and won the 2011 Game of the Year Award from Creative Child Magazine. Way to go George! It’s a reminder to us all to never ever EVER give up!

Very inspiring. For as long as I can remember, there is a saying that was drilled inside of me. That saying is: “The race is not given to the swift, but to those who endure until the end”. What has happened to Mr. Weiss is a classic example of endurance. Thank you for shareing.
