On the 15th day of Christmas, My true love sent to me…
A resource to travel confidently, regardless of physical challenges.
Brett Heising is as determined as they come. He is a daily source of positivity, humor, and inspiration at the SeedSpot office and we are fortunate enough to call him a great friend. Here is his story about brett approved …
About a year ago, I was in San Francisco on business and I made the hotel reservations. I called the hotel to be sure my room would have a roll-in shower. And the rep said, “No problem, Sir! We’ve got you covered.”
Great! I called again a couple of days before we arrived just to confirm. And yes, I was assured I had a room with a roll-in shower waiting for me. So, after a really long day of travel, I rolled into the hotel lobby and … you guessed it: NO roll-in shower. I explained the gravity of the situation to the hotel manager and she found a room for me all right…. in a D-I-F-F-E-R-E-N-T H-O-T-E-L! Needless to say, I was fuming.
Still upset the next day at breakfast, the idea for brett approved was born.
brett approved.com, is a travel, restaurant and entertainment venue review, rating and booking website for the millions of disabled people in the United States and ultimately, across the globe. It will help us book accessible travel accommodations and figure out if that new bar down the street is a place we can meet friends after work. Simply put, the possibilities for brett approved positively impact the world are limitless.
You’ll be able to decide quickly and confidently if a destination meets your needs based on our brett score — a numerical rating system I’m counting on users to help create and influence with each review.
- No more showing up to your hotel and discovering it won’t work
- No more eating at just a few restaurants because you know they’re accessible
- No more going to a venue and being surprised by crappy accessible accommodations
To make brett approved a reality, I need you!
In the coming days, we’ll be raising $500,000 via Indiegogo, to get this project off the ground — build version 1.0 of the site and help spread the word about brett approved. To do this, I’m going to meet and connect with the people across country and the globe who will use and benefit from brett approved.
Together, we’ll change the world one review at a time by helping everyone — regardless of their physical challenges — travel confidently.
At brett approved we know tomorrow is a gift wanted by all but promised to none. That’s why we’re determined to help people make the most of today. If not me, who? If not now, when?
From the entire brett approved family to yours, may the road rise to meet you and the wind be always at your back in 2013 and for years to come. Merry Christmas & Happy New Year!

Brett’s favorite food is his mother’s meatloaf, so we added a recipe for mini meatloaves … Let’s see if this one is “brett approved!”
