So, as we announced this past Saturday, today we start our new series “Next BIG Thing” where we will feature startups and business ideas…And the first in this series is ‘My Wake Up Calls’ – Motivational alarm clock messages that help you get up, start your day, and stay motivated all day long.
Founder Robin B. Palmer kept wishing for an affordable personal trainer to motivate her to wake up on those dreadful early mornings and make her way to the gym to work out. Tired of not finding an affordable and practical solution, she turned her wish into a successful business and ‘My Wake Up Calls’ was born. Her product was featured as the product of the month in SHAPE magazine in July of 2009, it was Robin’s first major milestone.
My Successables Incorporated, the company that markets My Wake Up Calls, is a family company ran by Tom and Robin Palmer who are the CEO and President of the company. In addition, the husband-wife team hired John St. Augustine as their Executive Producer who previously worked as the Senior Producer for the Oprah Radio Show. The company looks forward to more sales as new content providers or “messengers” are recorded yielding new messages every month.
Robin’s team has put forward a new business plan to help fund her business and stimulate future growth. My Successables Incorporated is currently looking to increase their online sales of My Wake Up Calls, which is available at MyWakeUpCalls.net
If you’re interested in getting involved with My Wake Up Calls, help them raise funds for business expansion or become a licensed reseller, contact them here.

Keeping Fit – ‘My Workout Wake Up Call’
Wake up on right side of bed with motivational clock
Cary Castagna – February 6th, 2010
Ever yell at your alarm clock? C’mon, sure you have. I admit I’ve muttered a few curse words in its direction while fumbling for the “snooze” button on the occasional early Monday morning. Excuse my French.
Anyway, now there’s an alarm clock that can talk back. But the clock I’m talking about spews out nothing but pleasant positivity designed to make you wake up and work out.
It’s called “My Workout Wake Up Call” – a unique motivational alarm clock that helps you rise and shine and then get your body in motion with inspirational messages and some orchestral music. The upbeat music has been recorded by the American Wind Symphony Orchestra (www.americanwindsymphonyorchestra.org).
Sure beats the annoying buzzer that wails from traditional alarm clocks.
Each messages lasts for up to 10 minutes to help ensure you start your day right – with a great workout.
There are a few different models. I’ve got the iPod Dock Alarm Clock and I love it. Other models include an MP3 Cube.
It’s as easy as downloading several weeks worth of messages into my iPod, plugging my iPod into the clock and then setting the clock.
The concept is based on research showing that the “mindset upon awakening influences one’s perspective as the day progresses. My Workout Wake Up Call’s unique message structure enhances
awakening uplifted with positive energy,” according to Robin B. Palmer, the creator of the cool idea.
Palmer, who is in fantastic shape herself, played lead roles in Broadway musicals for 15 years. She says that once she settled down and had a family – which was accompanied by the typically
hectic lifestyle – she kept wishing for an affordable personal trainer to inspire her to wake up and work out each morning. Of course, that never happened. So Palmer used her imagination and
technology to create My Workout Wake Up Call. And the rest, as they say, is history.
