Cutting More than Grass

Guinness World Record #14 is for the books. In front of hundreds of Cradlepoint’s Partners at our Global Partner Summit in Boise, Idaho at the new JUMP center, I set a new mark for “Longest Duration Balancing a Lawnmower on the Chin (non powered)”. The time to beat was 5 minutes 1 second. My neck is sore and my back will hurt tomorrow but those 5 minutes and 31 seconds were totally worth.

Cradlepoint is powered by continuing advances in science, technology, engineering, and math and we need more students to pursue STEM, more to understand it, and especially more to believe they can succeed. I set Guinness World Records to inspire students to believe they can do amazing things if they set their mind to it and work hard.

There are some pretty cool tractors at JUMP.

Balancing a lawnmower is a pretty frivolous task, but I hope to cut down the mental barrier to entry so many students have to the “hard” subjects in which they may think they cannot succeed.

I thought Sadie was pretty brave for taking this one.
