And I’ve been working like a dog
It’s been a hard day’s night
I should be sleeping like a log

About Sean

My name is Sean Fry and I’m the founder of sleepinglikealog.com.

I’ve been in the mattress industry for 15 years now.  Between the years 2000 and 2013 I made my living as a mattress salesman for several retailers, big and small.  I went back and did the math and I estimate that I helped somewhere between 9,000 – 10,000 people choose a new mattress over the years.  That’s a lot of beds!

I’ve sat through countless educational sessions, trained new employees, sold all of the major brands, visited several major manufacturing plants and I still learn new things all the time.

I love helping people find the right mattress because I know how important sleep is.  It’s the number one predictor for longevity, it makes you smarter, and it can even help you lose weight.  Sleeping well really does make your life a lot more enjoyable.

Over the years I eventually realized that my chosen profession was becoming difficult for me.  As I became more and more aware of how mattresses were actually made and the materials they used, I realized the mattresses that I was selling at my day job were no longer lining up with my personal beliefs and ethics.

I was also becoming frustrated with the different games mattress stores play, un-friendly exchange and return policies, and the phony sales and gimmicks.  And since discovering that the mattresses that I had been recommending were loaded with very questionable chemicals, I began focusing on a better way.

So, in 2012, this website was born.  It’s about giving as much as I possibly can to help you.  It’s cathartic because I can share with you what I never could in a store.  This site is about presenting a better way to buy a mattress and finding healthier options that are good for you and the environment.  My mission is to give you a chance to stand up to the corporate monopolies in the industry so you can make a better decision and save money in the process.

The mattress industry has made shopping for a mattress deliberately confusing.  My job is to simplify it for you and make the process a bit easier.  I believe buying a mattress should be simple.  I believe people can make better decisions when they have enough information and plenty of time to decide for themselves.  This is why I’m absolutely committed to creating the very best content I can.

I believe everyone deserves to sleep on a healthy, supportive mattress and they should not be reserved only for those with high incomes.  I’m here to show you how to beat the system and get the best mattress for the money.
