The Pitch: Meghan Martinez sells us on a digital alternative to the key

SheKnows.com helps empower women through articles and discussion related to women's issues including beauty, relationships and parenting.

WHAT'S YOUR REACTION?

This keyless system allows remote access to properties from anywhere in the world — no key ring needed

Did Meghan Martinez sell you in her 60 seconds? Think about it: How many people had keys to that rental before you stayed there? Keasy is a safe and easy way for property managers and others to remotely access homes without handing out multiple keys. We feel safer already.

Name: Meghan Martinez

What you’re pitching: Keasy is a software platform that gives property managers, homeowners and investors the ability to remotely manage access to their homes from anywhere in the world using our patent-pending keyless lock and smartphone app. I'm on a mission to keep vacationers safe and protect homeowners' investments.

Position: Founder, Keasy

Hails from: I grew up in a suburb of Memphis, moved to Phoenix to attend ASU in 1995 and have been a Southern girl living in the desert ever since.

Birthday: Nov. 30

Personal life: Married to my favorite person on the planet, mother to an adorable gremlin/terrier rescue named Lucy

Priors: Party girl in college #GoSunDevils; I've sold everything from cars to beachfront homes in Mexico; owner of a funny gift line called Lil Basket Case; co-owner of a snarky T-shirt line, Unsweetened Tee; real estate broker; lifelong dreamer

Pitch inspired by: Allyson Kapin of Women Who Tech, who was kind enough to reach out and encourage me to introduce Keasy to the BlogHer-sphere. It has been a blast, and I'm forever grateful for the opportunity.

Mentor(s)/people who inspire: My mom, for "not breaking my spirit." My dad, for never telling me "no." My brother, for thinking I am hilarious and providing a safe space always to be myself. My husband, for signing up to marry the monster created by the parties listed above and loving me unconditionally. I am inspired and encouraged by strong/funny/smart ladies — Chelsea Handler, Tina Fey, Amy Poehler, Robin Quivers, Ellen DeGeneres, Amy Schumer, Julia Louis-Dreyfus, Sheryl Sandberg, Sara Blakely and Elizabeth Holmes

Words to live by: "Please" and "thank you"

Last read/watched/listened: Read: Zero to One by Peter Thiel; watched: True Detective Season 2 / Episode 2 #DAMNBIRDMAN; listened: Howard Stern Show, every day

Social: TwitterInstagramPinterest

Guilty pleasure: Tater tots, dirty martinis, binge-watching House of Cards and Orange Is the New Black

How I recharge: My ultimate recharge is the beach; it is the end of complications. I also love to read, hike, color, write or spend the afternoon laughing with friends.

Top of travel wish list: Overwater bungalow in Bora Bora, or I'd settle for a few weeks at Necker Island #easytoplease.
