"I finally figured out how to support my weight," Holmes said. "And I’m not light."

After making a presentation to the ELP, Holmes decided to make the seat adjustable per the feedback he received.

Although he has come to a standstill in production, Holmes is confident that he will push through.

Executive consultant Dano Ybarra said he started coming to ELP meetings in 2009 because after moving from the Silicon Valley he knew very few people.

Ybarra, who had helped create the first DSL modem and later sold it for more than $1 billion, said he enjoys guiding others.

"I love helping because I’ve been where they’re going," Ybarra said.
