The Story Behind the Name of The Upward Blip
As the sole proprietor and founder, I am the culprit behind it all. I work as a laboratory scientist in a hospital since the second half of 2004 right after I passed my medical technology boards. Even before that, I was interning at the university hospital where I went to school at.
If I think about it, that is half of my entire existence. That is one big deciding factor for the name. In a hospital setting, you frequently hear the bleeping sound. That bleeping sound means hope to me. Hope that everything will remain okay despite being critical as long as the bleep continues on.
So one dry South Dakota mid-summer, The Upward Blip was born.
I believe, with hard work and commitment, this business will continue to thrive. I will give it my all just so I can give you the satisfaction you so deserve. Help me make this a thriving business and allow me to consistently see an upward trend. Let me forge ahead with that upward blip…
