Inventors, Focus On Inventing for the Next Virus
The coronavirus has affected the world in a way in which most of us have never seen. Years ago, my father told me the story of how he was at high school football practice when it was announced over the PA speaker that President John F. Kennedy had been shot and killed. For my father, this was a life event that he would never forget. In my life, the...

What It’s Really Like Attending a Trade Show as an Inventor

What It’s Really Like Attending a Trade Show as an Inventor
Many years back I attended the "Super Zoo" trade show in Las Vegas, NV. Billed as the most-attended pet industry trade show in North America, I was nervous to attend to say the least. This was the first time I had ever shown my product, the Woof Washer 360, publicly. I couldn't afford a booth (not that I necessarily wanted or needed one.) I had no ...

If I Could Just Get On Shark Tank!

If I Could Just Get On Shark Tank!
“If I could just get on Shark Tank.” I hear this all the time. “If I only had enough money.” “If I just knew the right person then all my worries and all of my concerns would go away.” Bringing a product to market is not a money issue, and it’s not about whom you know. It’s a knowledge and experience issue, and gaining those takes time. There isn’t...
